Now how about a little catch up? I'm doing okay. They've finally (after 9 years) found the problem to some girl issues I've been having. It's a very simple girl problem that someone probably should've caught sometime in the last 9 years. I'm happy, obviously, with Mr. Wonderful and enjoying every time we're able to sneak together. I got a new pair of Chucks in the mail yesterday from him and am told I have a bundle of tea coming as there may or may not have been a local tea crisis (don't ask y'all, seriously). I'm really loving my little apartment and am enjoying a home with no bad memories, no trauma, just happy memories. I spend a lot of time with my bestie and we've been having a ton of fun experimenting with hair changes but I think I'm going to wind up just going back to a nice simple coppery color, but it's been a blast experimenting (and if you need a cut or color in the Lincoln area, I have your hookup!)
Stomp's doing well in school. He's completely mastered fractions and decimals. He's thoroughly enjoying some non-fiction reading. He continues to be praised at school for his kind nature and his good manners. He helps out with his brother whenever he can and is okay with taking on more responsibility chore-wise now that he's compared his chore list to mine. Suddenly his don't seem so bad. He's going to be taking a basketball camp at the end of May and swim lessons this summer and is excited that we'll have a pool pass and a children's museum pass this year.
Joshua is...well...quite suddenly very two. He's got over 200 words. Thanks to Mr. Wonderful, he's developing a weird hybrid midwestern/boston accent. He says things like lobst-uh and Wes Welk-uh (yes, we know Wes Welk-uh has been traded to Denv-uh). He enjoys being read to and really loves music, especially "Mum-erd" (Mumford & Sons) and he likes to listen to Garth Brooks and yell "God Bless Chris Ledoux!" At the park he especially loves the slides and is learning to pick up after himself. He can count to 17 now (the number of stairs on each floor of our apartment) and especially loves Blue's Clues and Curious George.
