josh is still home sick today. last night he felt a little better, especially after a shower and some supper, but this morning he complained of tummyaches and has gone right back to sleep. poor sweet boy.
my other sweet boy, ben boy, hasn't been himself lately either. don't get me wrong--at home he's happy as a lark, all smiley and ornery--but at daycare, he's been crying a lot and doesn't seem content. i'd be lying if i said it didn't bother me. truth is, it kills me and i wish with all my heart that i could keep him with me at all cost. i would even quit my job and be a stay-at-home-mom if i could. i'm hoping and praying for him to feel more comfortable and easy in his new class and for his teachers to have patience with him. they are such loving and dedicated ladies that i have no fears there really, but they also have seven other children to take care of and they can't and shouldn't spend all their time making ben happy. physically he's getting stronger and stronger everyday. he just needs some reassurance every now and again. i hope it gets better.
on the home front, our to-do list is getting bigger and bigger every weekend. there is so much we would like to do around the house, so many little projects, and a few biggies. one biggie i really would like to do is refinish my kitchen cabinets to kill the sea of wood i have in there. check out this from southern living and be sure to click on the pages at the top to scroll through all of the neat details of the update.
i think i could do this. looks easy enough, right? famous last words!
