Sometimes, in the most unexpected of moments, Lucas will decide that he does not want me to look at him. "Stop Looking At Me!" he will shout. Luckily, I was able to capture that moment of insanity the other day. Lucas was fed up with me "looking" at him, so he placed himself in time out. He had had ENOUGH! I thought about posting the video footage I filmed right before he stomped off to the ivy covered wall. But I just couldn't. Every time I watch that video I want to reach into the computer screen and snatch him up. If you are like me though, you make excuses for your child like- he's just sleepy or he's hungry or he's got an ear infection. These excuses allow you to forgive and forget and more importantly- maintain your sanity.
My name is Katy, and I'm a native Floridian. I have three precious children, and I've been happily married for twelve years. I enjoy the simple things in life, for example, freshly brewed coffee, a good movie, perfectly seasoned steak, and silence. At our house silence is truly golden, and when there is that brief moment of silence, I usually fall asleep before I can enjoy it.
English is my first language, but I also speak whine. This is a language spoken mainly by hungry, sleepy children. I became submersed in this language after the birth of my first child. In the beginning I only understood the language, but now after three children, I not only understand it, I speak it- fluently.
