The W Family Chronicles

Here comes chaos.

Posted on: December 11, 2006

So, in addition to the holidays coming up, things are going to get crazy busy for us.  This is J’s last week of school until after the holidays so we’ll have time to adjust slightly.  Starting next week, we have weekly trips to Charlotte to have C’s helmet adjusted.  That’s about 5 hours round trip, plus appointment time.  Plus once a week play therapy and physical therapy sessions.  They each last an hour, thankfully in our home so don’t require anything other than us getting dressed and straightening up.  So that’s 3 days a week C has something.  Then of course J has school on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.  We quit gymnastics due to the germ factor — several moms were dropping their kids off sick.  While I know kids do get sick, I prefer to avoid it as much as possible.  I also do others the common courtesy of keeping *my* child at home when there’s a possibility he may be contagious.  Germs aside, I’m now glad we have one less thing on our plate each week!

Plus my mom will be coming for the holidays, we’ll have to find some time to spend with D’s family, and we’ll also need to figure out when we’ll see my brother and his wife as well.  All of that makes for a *very* busy time around here.  I love the holidays but there is always SO much to do.  The last couple of years we have stayed home and had people come to visit us and it’s been wonderful…no packing up the car, kid(s), presents, etc. and hauling them to Tennessee only to turn right back around a few days later.  We felt like we weren’t enjoying Christmas because we didn’t have the time.  It also makes it much easier for Santa to find us. 😉

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
