The lake was wonderful! Remember, I went to the lake last weekend? Geez, seems like forever ago. Anyway, it was the first time I ever took the kids up there alone and I really didn't have to take up smoking to get through it. The cable was out when we arrived (anyone know anything about Rapid Cable because I am thinking they are running a scam) and I seriously considered turning around and going home as you know I love my television, but it turned out to be pretty nice without the old boob tube. We played in the wading pool and the sprinklers and the boys played an entire evening on the swing set slide in their underwear/diaper (don't ask). Jacob asked if I would sit out with him one night and look at stars, so I did. We don't see many stars here in the city and it was absolutely heavenly. One morning my mom's friend called to invite us to their farm, so we took them up on it. We had an awesome time, if only it had been thirty degrees cooler though.
All my life I thought I'd be the perfect mother. I even majored in it. I aced all the child development classes I took toward my degree in, wait for it, Early Childhood Development and Elementary Education.
And then they were born. First Jacob, who is 8, then Adam, who is 4, and our biggest surprise, Elizabeth who is 2.
As much as I really wanted to be, I am finding out I am no June Cleaver. For starters, The Beav never had a baby sister.
