I know this picture is really blurry and not good at all, but I think you can get the idea of what this is.
That’s right. A lizard. I am pretty sure that it must be the brother of the lizard I killed a few weeks ago. He is trying to get revenge on me for smushing his brother. I simply opened my front door to check on some packages, and the booger ran right inside like he owned the place. I freaked. I freaked big time. I screamed and ran to the other side of the house doing the “there might be lizards on me” dance. Thank God Derek was home this time so he was able to take care of this guy. He lost his tail in the process, but at least he is not residing on my walls or in my bed-which is where I was sure he was headed.
So I am watching a friends’ little boy today. Tristan is just about Connor’s age and they are having so much fun together! Seriously, this is so easy. If I thought that having three kids would be like this I would pop another one out pronto. But, of course this isn’t reality. For one thing, babies don’t come out playing nicely with other kids. And they certainly aren’t on their best behavior like Tristan is. But I am really amazed at how nicely they are playing together. There haven’t been any major fights, they are sharing, laughing, and just being boys together. The whole playing nice with others thing just reinforces the fact that Connor is growing up. It’s pretty amazing to me what kids learn to do in just a few years. If I look at what I have learned in the past three years it doesn’t even compare to what Connor has learned. It is all just a reminder of how important these first few years are. More growing and learning takes place right now than ever again in his life. I am so thankful that I have been able to stay home and be his teacher for these years.
Enough of that tangent. I just noticed that my blogiversary was two days ago! One year of blogging. I am so glad that Derek convinced me to start this thing. Now I have a great record of the past year. I’ve connected with people I’ve lost touch with, and even made new friends. Horray for blogging!
