New Haircut

I got my hair cut and colored today. It took 2 heavenly quiet and peaceful hours of me sitting and having someone take care of me, for a change.

I no longer feel like an overworked and underpaid mom. At least not for the rest of today!!

Gavin's Interpretation

Yesterday, Gavin was sitting next to me while I was holding Aislynn on my lap. We were all having fun singing songs when Gavin got carried away and kept getting right up in Aislynn's face. Finally, she was fed up and put out her hand and pushed him away.

"Looks like she's saying that she wants you to back away and give her some space, Gav." I said.

"No mom. She's saying, 'I love you Gavin and I want to touch your face.'"

Caedon's a Heart-breaker

An adorable little blonde girl in Caedon's preschool class has a crush on him. She brings him drawings and notes everyday that she made at home for him, she writes that she loves him on her notes, she asks him to hold her hand. And he...well, he's completely clueless.

Last week, she brought him a picture that she had obviously worked for a long time to color (everything was colored in the lines and she had used about 25 different colors). "Here Caedon. I made this special picture for you at home." she said. "Huh?" Caedon responded, "Just go put it in my cubby."

When I picked him up and asked why his friend colored him a picture, he responded, "I guess I'm the only one who is nice to her." For the record, this is an adorable girl with lots of friends at school. When I asked if he wanted to color a picture for her, he said, "Sure. I'll color a Speed Racer picture so she knows what I like."

Today, when we got to school a little late, there were 5 pictures for Caedon in his cubby. Later during class, the teacher reported that the little girl wrote Caedon a note on some pretty paper with pictures of pink shoes on it. She even asked the teacher how to spell his name and wrote "I Heart You." When she presented it to Caedon, he took one look at it and said, "I don't want that. It's got girl shoes on it." The teacher said, "Caedon, I think that the message on the note is more important than what's on the paper." Caedon replied, "Well, I don't want a note with girl shoes on it."

Will he be this clueless when he's in high school?
