The W Family Chronicles

It’s 10:00 AM and I’m ready for this day to be over.

Posted on: March 27, 2008

I have already been puked on this morning.  I think I should just crawl back into bed and sleep until tomorrow.  I can deal with blood, snot, poop, pee, etc. but vomit really does me in.  Ugh.  C seems to be feeling a little better now, so I can only pray that it’s a short lived upset stomach that won’t affect anyone else.  Please God, let that be all it is.

Yesterday he made huge strides with his speech…he probably said 10-15 *new* words yesterday.  It was amazing.  J was a little behind on speech but when he started talking, it was full sentences and he spoke very well for his age.  C has been a bit slower than average, but I decided I’d wait until his 2nd birthday before making the call to Early Intervention.  J’s speech really took off right around then, so I figured I’d give him at least that long.  Well yesterday he was saying the word for EVERYTHING he saw.  Book and car are the 2 I remember off the top of my head, but there were a LOT more.  So cool.  Those are the days I love being a mom and especially being able to stay home with them.  I’d have missed most of them if I’d been at work.  And he was so proud of himself every time he said a new word.  Those are the good days.

The days when you get puked on are NOT the good days.  And even if I worked, I would be at home with the incredible puking toddler so I guess insisting on going back to work won’t solve that problem. *sigh*

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!
