a conversation

Yesterday Link ran to the bathroom yelling that he was going to throw-up, well, he made it to the bathroom but that was all.  Nothing was spared.  I got Link in the tub and as I was cleaning throw-up off the floor, walls, cabinets, hamper, tub, anything in the 10 ft radius, Link and I had the following conversation.

Lincoln: "I'm just sorry I did that, Mom."
Me: "Don't be sorry, you couldn't help it, it will be alright I had to clean this bathroom anyway."
Lincoln: "What would happen if Dad had been walking by when I threw up?"
Me: "Well, I would probably be cleaning up two throw-ups, yours and Dad's."
Lincoln: "I know, sometimes it's hard being a mom, huh."
Me: (laughing) "Yes, yes it is.  But I love you so it's all good"

Here he is before his surgery, he really wanted a photo of the cool free socks that he got. :)

A while back we found this little guy at church and he has now become a permanent member of the family.  His name is Spike and he has kept me company this weekend so I thought it was time to take his portrait and formerly introduce him.

miss my boys

All the boys left me behind and went up to Salt Lake this weekend and I MISS THEM!!  In nearly 10 years of marriage Mike and I have only spent a handful of nights apart and this is the longest time I have been away from the boys, EVER!  The quiet is unnerving here.  At least we have ichat, it was great to see them last night and I can't wait for tonight!  Here is what our conversation looked like...

And I was happy to get a big lips kiss from Jack!  Link was too busy playing with cousins to miss me.

the difference

This photo sums up perfectly the difference between my two boys, and I love it!  Can you tell which pile belongs to which kid?

So, I have this friend, his name is Dave.  I have known him for a long while now and he has a blog. Years ago, when we all lived at Raintree, I didn't know that he was such a hilarious writer, but alas, he is.  I have decided to try and win him more readership, I really think he could be the next big thing in blogging... really.  Here is his blog, check it out, leave a comment, put it on your RSS feed,  all that good stuff!
