The last few weeks I’ve been on the learning curve. The transition for one kid to two has been interesting to say the least! There have been more than a few “crazy mommy” moments and I’ve had a breakdown or two a long the way.
I was looking desperately for a clip from a certain episode of The Simpsons to post. It’s the one where the family is driving along and Marge complains that she can’t get around all the SUVs in front of her. Homer helpfully reassures her by saying “Don’t worry about those SUVs, there’s a gentle curve up ahead.” and all the SUVs roll off the mountain side, one after another.
I feel like one of those SUVs these last few weeks on this particular learning curve.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s been fun too. But one to two is so much harder than none to one. We are getting the hang of it, and with much prayer, my patience and love seems to be increasing (aka I’m starting to get better at this, I think).
Some fun stuff we’ve been doing the last few weeks have included returning to the farm (explosive diapers and all), attending a county fair, visits with friends, Rick’s 10 year high school reunion picnic. We even went on a date… we saw Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince last week!
Here are some pictures from the fair (click for best view). Henry’s favorite part was the pony ride. But we saw lots of animals (even llamas), a cool steam train whistle, some fun rides, and lots of 4-H projects.
Rick’s reunion was at E.B. Raines park up in Thornton. We played on the playground and went on the paddle boats (even me). And all four of us got a sunburn. But it was a lot of fun!
