But Really His Name Is Ratbones

I made a goal this year to post on my blog at least ten times per month. This month, I may not make it. It's been kind of hard to think of amusing anecdotes, to tell you the truth. I don't really have a good excuse except that I've had both kids at home full-time since July 25th. I know that plenty of people do that job all the time, but I was new at it.

It occurred to me that since I'm not teaching at the moment, my yearly emotional calendar has shifted. It used to be September-May was super difficult and stressful, but now it's June-August. Next summer, I'll employ some different coping strategies.

Lucky for me, Shef started his Pre-Kindergarten class last week. He did two half-days to orient himself, and starting on Tuesday he'll be going all day. On Friday, I took this video of him. Before I pressed record, we'd agreed that he would discuss his impressions of school. Instead, he leads off with a description of a violent Indiana Jones game we were playing at my mom's house. Oh well.

He is pretty funny, I've gotta say. Next I'll try to get him on tape singing High School Musical.

First of all, he is so cute and so 4. Secondly, he reminds me so much of my younger brother at that age.

He makes some great faces.
I have video of Q NOT complying with my prompts. This def. brings back memories.

I've been stuck on blog ideas myself of late.
