The Writing on the Wall

Last week was a tough one for my BuhBuh. I think part of it was because it was the first week back after break and it was too cold to go outside and run off some of his boy energy. The other part is that he's part ornery. Adorable....but oh, so ornery.

After a harder than usual round of homework, I was at my wits end. In my attempt to have him keep some focus I told him he wasn't allowed to talk to me unless it was specifically about the assignment he was working on.

After my 20 billionth time of telling him I didn't want him to talk, he sobbed "YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT ANYTHING!!!!" then he thought and added, "Except God and Jesus."

hehehehe.....I thought it was funny that he had to add that little disclaimer.

After kids were (finally!!!) all tucked in for the night I was in the bathroom picking up and getting myself ready for bed and on the shower wall in red (bathtub!) marker was a message (I tried to take a picture but my camera was unable to focus on the shower wall for some reason):



I think he knows that I really do care about other things in my life.


Our bedroom is just off of the kitchen. Countless times a day I walk past our magnet filled refrigerator to go into our bedroom. I had noticed a new arrangement of "flair" on the side of the refrigerator but hadn't taken a moment to stop and look closely.

But My Sweetie did.

And there was laughter.

"Come here!!! Come here!!!! Check this out!!!!"

It took me a minute but as I looked closer, I understood the humor and also began to laugh.

I wonder which one of my loving, adorable children was responsible for this???

And I wonder too, what exactly it says about the way he feels about himself and the way he feels about his brothers?
