We've Turned a Corner!


When my kids were like two and three, I would tell my husband, "I think we're turning a corner," and his response would be "Yeah, just like we're turning a corner in Iraq!"

He was right. I was trying to convince myself that things were getting better, but they weren't.

But now.... we really have turned a corner!

Our kids are five and six and we had the best weekend with them. Not to jinx myself, but they played so nicely together and I got to finish The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest while they swam and made up games involving a crazy mixture of horses and Jedis.

Have I mentioned that they are SO cute?

Now if only I had their imaginations, I could go write a great book!

They are sooooo cute! Enjoy every stage of their lives. My oldest will be going to college in two years. I feel sick about it. That's one corner I don't want to turn.

So cute! I remember that time, when mine finally started to play together and entertain themselves. It's a HUGE corner to turn! Enjoy!

Super cute!! Oh those wonderful and big imaginations, if only we were able to hold on to them throughout life!

Heh, where do you think they got those imaginations FROM? :)

Yay! So happy for you! What a great new stage to enter... time when your kids can play WITH each other but independent of YOU. Hallelujah! Hope the trend continues!

Cutie patooties. I can just see the brilliance coming off of Jordan. I did tell you I am slightly intimidated by her, right?

I spent the weekend with three nieces, one nephew and my daughter...I must say I love the stage my daughter is in (14), but it seems that her age is always my favorite. :) I'm glad you had a lovely weekend with your kids...They grow up so fast.
