Yesterday Big Guy went with Grandma on errands and Little Guy and I got to hang out just the two of us at home. He picked up a math book I had pulled out that BG used to use but realized it was way too young, and he started counting the items on the front. So we opened up the book and did the first five pages verbally. I kind of wondered when he would start to show an interest in "school" type of learning. He's all over it now. How fun!
After that I took a shower while he roamed the house. When I got out I heard my bedroom door shut so I wrapped a towel around me and went to see what he was up to. I peeked around the corner into his room and he was sitting in the Lego corner giggling wildly to himself. Then he picks up Daddy's mag flashlight, which he must've gotten out of Daddy's tool area while I was in the shower because he knows he's not supposed to have it, and he starts shining it on the ceiling making spaceship noises. I just stood there and watched him be so absolutely adorable for a few minutes before I went back in my room and got dressed.
On a NOT so cute note, I feel like I am on PERMANENT PMS lately. I have these herbs that I used a few years ago that calmed my shot nerves down enough to help me realize I really wasn't a word with a capital B ALL the time, just right before my period, and two weeks after for a few days. Well it's been awhile since I ran out - read 9 months, and I thought I was okay. It's been slowly getting worse and worse to where I think I'm getting a two day break instead of a two day dose with this whole shot nerves thing. I am just being that capital B and I can't seem to stop! So it's on rush order, as fast as it can be any way and I can't freakin' wait. Oh yeah, and guess who gets the brunt of it. Hubby. Poor guy. Oh well at least me ditchin' him with the two kids (meaning I took them) tonight got him out of the house to hopefully go see his friend who just got home from Japan a week or so ago that he hasn't been able to see yet 'cause I've been too busy yakkin'. :D
UPDATE: Confirmed. Hubby is out with his friend. *sigh* Sometimes it's nice to be away from family because it's not such an easy escape. Tonight I went out with my sister, he with his friend. I don't think we would've survived the early years had we lived out here, we would've made ourselves too busy skirting our issues. It's days like this I remember how being in Texas forced us to have a stronger, thus better, relationship.
