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.

Following her Examples

After almost 9 months of falling prey to her brothers’ affection/aggression, today Ella found her own little victim. My friends from Utah came to visit with their 4 ½ month old son, Zev. And although he was almost as big as Ella, because he’s half her age, he’s not so mobile. She took full advantage of this, hitting him on the head, poking at his eyes, trying to grab his ears.

All things Max does to her. It could have been worse. She could have done as Max did to her today and try to ride on Zev’s back like a horse.

I do hope in time, she learns to distinguish which of her brothers' behavior she should emulate, and which she should never attempt.

Is Max at the table naked? He is too much. I hope that Ella does not follow that example.

Yes, he's naked. Decided after his bath, while I was dressing Ella, he'd finish and add to his breakfast. Ugh!

I got your e-mail yesterday and I have so much to say, since I totally get where you are right now! I'll be e-mailing you hopefully tomorrow while the boys are with someone else and I have some time.
