I'm like Sally Field now

Wow, August was a heck of a month! I started the month by resting and relaxing (allegedly), only to jump on the roller coaster of life again a week later. My musings on Hoss' reaction to his dad's surgery earned me a vote of Perfect Post. I don't think I've ever been "perfect" at anything, but it sure feels good to be recognized for reaching. I read a lot of blogs, mostly by people whose writing is, in my opinion, much better than my own is. I've been flattered by the comments, visits, and emails I've gotten indicating that people whose opinions I feel I can respect have respect for what I put on the screen each week. When I post about my feelings of inadequacy and craziness, I'm usually doing it to vent. So it is still a surprise when I get an email from a pediatrician who reads my blog (the fact that he's a doctor has nothing to do with him reading, but that's not the point) praising me for my courage in articulating how out of control I felt. So anyway, thanks, y'all. You like me! You really like me!

Who's Who

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
