My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

It's Good to be Missed.

Many of you wonderful bloggin buddies have mentioned that you missed me over the weekend and have given me a welcome back complete with red carpet.

I do appreciate that greatly.

It was funny, I wasn't sure my boys would notice I was gone. Especially since Subvet made sure they stayed busy.

Subvet made a point of telling me each night when we spoke that Sonshine had asked when I'd be home. However, we just didn't know about Gator-boy because he doesn't talk much, yet.

When I got home Sunday evening, Subvet was fixing supper. I sat in the living room with the kids. Alligator (my rather hyper "motor driven" child) spent the entire time from when I walked in to when supper was ready in my lap. When he would get down for a little of his normal up-down-up-down routine, he held both of my hands. Wouldn't let me go.

We've been working on getting him to say "mama" as a name for me. To do this we frequently will say "Where's mama?" and then point to me. He didn't respond at all to this until this week. He's done it consistently for 3 days now. Of course, this is the week that his speech therapist is on vacation so I'm just hoping he keeps it up so we can brag when we see her next.

So, I was missed, and it is nice.

I'm very glad to be back home and blogging again.

And thanks to all of you for your kind and thoughtful words.

Awwww. how sweet! AND how gratifying! Ummmm, are you going to use that pool water again? lol

Nope, as a matter of fact we're not going to use the pool again either. See the big duct tape patch on the side? Well, good old Sonshine pulled the tape off and now we need to replace the pool. It's lasted almost 2 summers and that's more than I expected from a $30 pool anyway. Of course it helped that it's rained for 3 months and we're just now getting in it this year ;-)
