We had dear friends over from Orlando to spend the day with us on Friday. We took care of their 3 year old twins for them while they attended a meeting.
Let me pause to say that I had forgotten what a 3 year old is like. Which is I think a gift from God, because after experiencing 3 with each of my children, I would likely not have had any more had I really remembered what 3 is actually like.
So Friday was like having a 3 year old Jensen again. Times two. No. Times five. Because these particular 3 year old twins have MORE ENERGY THAN SHOULD BE HUMANLY POSSIBLE.
And what I find really fun about the whole thing, is that their daddy is Fiddledaddy’s best friend. Since college. And they are the same age. So this poor sweet man is father to 3 year old twins and he’s OVER FIFTY.
I have a whole new respect and admiration for my friends. And I’m saying an extra helping of prayers for them each day now.
Jensen was shell shocked by the whole experience. He kept saying, “MOMMY, THEY ARE WILD!” In fact, that night he woke up with a horrific nightmare. I told Fiddledaddy that Jensen likely dreamed that the twins were moving in with us.
I wanted to do a little horn tooting and tell you that Fiddledaddy was asked to write a guest blog post on “Big Hollywood”. It appeared on Saturday, so you can click here to read the post. I thought it turned out wonderfully. If you have a second, please leave Fiddledaddy a comment on the post. It would make his day.
Some of you have asked what else he has appeared in. The blog post has a link to his website, and his credits are listed there.
We begin our 4th and final quarter of homeschool today (Monday). The end is in sight. PRAISETHELORDFROMWHOMALLBLESSINGSFLOW! I have my reservation for the Florida Homeschool Convention in May. I may or may not have already started packing.
If you’ll recall, last year I was in between knee surgeries, in pain, and not getting around to well. So the trip was not as restful and rejuvenating as I had hoped. And because of the pain killers, there were no wine coolers in my luggage.
I plan to make up for valuable lost time this year. Just saying’.
Have a fantastic Monday, everyone!
