Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

New Skills

Max has learned to climb out of his crib.

I know I mentioned this about a month or so ago, but he had only actually used his newly acquired skill once or twice. Last night, and today, he discovered the freedom that comes with knowing how to escape. Twice last night, he came down after he was supposed to be asleep. It's quite cute the grin on his face as he slowly steps down the stairs waiting to see our reaction. Last night, it was cute.

Today, after the 10th time of immediately returning him to his crib, there was NOTHING cute about it.


On a positive note, we would like to announce that Cameron can now officially ride his bike WITHOUT his training wheels!

He had been asking us since last year if we could take them off. Seeing how lopsided he was when he rode his bike, I was not about to have the extra support removed. But Saturday Melvin took them off. They practiced a little then, with some success.

And then Sunday and today he rode his two-wheeler like a pro. The only thing is, because his bike is a little big he can't start by himself. I'm hoping by the end of the week he'll have that all figured out.

Cameron is VERY excited about his new ability...almost as excited as his is about his birthday. He even asked if we could put the baby trailer on the back of his bike so he could pull Max and Ella.....Um, I don't think so!!!!

The new grandbaby (Taylor) is just fine. Since I'm getting more computer savvy, I'll try to email pictures. Don't laugh to hard if you don't get them. Tell Cameron Aunt Sylvia said, "way to go" and give him a high-five for me.

oh god. they have those little tent/topper things for the crib but they seem wrong. fortunately my children never seemed to figure it out too quickly - no idea why as they drive me nuts in every other possible way.....

Way to go Cameron........now we can ride together on the boardwalk this summer. By that time you will have mastered the ins and outs of dodging people (I hope!).

Without training wheels is a huge accomplishment, especially at 4 1/2.
