Should I just start every post from now until the kids are in school with something along the lines of how crap I’ve been at writing new posts? It’s the dead of winter, we are literally snowed in (actually “iced” in as it’s more ice than snow) because it is only supposed to be emergency personnel on the roads, and only now am I able to steal a moment to make a post. John’s office has been closed yesterday and today due to the weather. Yesterday was a regular non working day for me, so the only difference for me was that we were confined to the house. We had fun though, playing all over the house and having some downtime in the afternoon watching The Lion King (my favorite cartoon movie). Hayden watched it very intently for 20 or 25 minutes, then he was having me make tunnels with my legs for him to crawl under as well as climbing all over my head.
John was out of town last week for four days, and as a result it seems as though in Hayden’s world Mommy has finally made a comeback! For many months now Hayden has been a big daddy’s boy, to the extent that many times he wants nothing to do with me if Daddy is around. (When Daddy’s not around there’s never been a problem, phew!) But he has seemed to come back around to me since John’s business trip. Don’t get me wrong, he is still very into Daddy, but he will say to John he wants to do something with me now that previously he would have never wanted to do with me if Daddy were available (i.e. go for a walk). Its nice to be back! And I’m enjoying it while it lasts, because he is a typical fickle three-year-old and I know this could change with the wind!
