I wonder how long the wonder of being able to go somewhere with Troy without having to bring the children with us will last? Because I think it’s been a couple of months that we’ve been willing to leave them home together while we go and buy something for lunch or tea, and I’m still kind of surprised by it every time. It has been fourteen years that we’ve had children though. I also wonder if the fact that we had children so quickly factors into this, because there really wasn’t that much time before they came along for us to be just a couple. I met Troy in April 2000 and Nicholai was born in February 2002, which is a pretty quick turnaround.
It was such a cold and rainy day today. I don’t mind this at all, but weekend days when the little boys can’t go outside on the trampoline are always a bit of a let down for them. They were pretty good though, played with toys and paid poker chips and did whatever. Nicholai and Emma did the same thing, it was all pretty relaxed today.
Jericho let me put his hair in a ponytail this morning, just to see if we could. It’s been getting a lot longer, and although sometimes he says he doesn’t know what he’ll do with it when it is really long he isn’t interested in getting it cut any time soon. We were actually able to put the top of it back in a ponytail this morning and although he didn’t leave it in, he seemed pretty pleased with the look. He really does have good hair!
