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.

Brain freeze?

Normally, when it’s nice and sunny, Cameron wants to stay inside and play video games or something else with his friends.

One day this summer, it was raining out, and he said how happy he was because he didn’t want us to tell him that it was nice weather and he should go outside and play.

Today it was in the single digits and windy.

Today Cameron wanted to go OUTSIDE to “play” (wrestle) with his friends.

After about 10 minutes, Sara looked out the window and saw that Cameron had taken off his winter jacket and was running around in his SHORT SLEEVE shirt! I quickly called him in and he told me he HAD to take off his coat because the zipper was broken (unzipping from the bottom), and it kept bothering his neck. Then he tried to run back out….dropping his coat on the floor, as if his explanation was logical enough and I’d actually let him back out like that.

Did I mention it was in the single digits today?

The outside playing didn’t last too long because after two boys left to go to Tae Kwon Doe, the “throwing each other on the ground” wrestling turned into “punching each other in the face" wrestlin,g and one boy went home crying while Cameron tried to explain to me that in adult wrestling that’s what you do, punch and kick. (How he knows this, I don't know, because he doesn't even watch wrestling...at least not at home).

Six year old boys...I REALLY don’t get them.

If this kid in my belly is a boy, I will swap him for Ella. You can have the three boys and I will take the two girls. Deal?

I must commend your children because at least they attempt to explain their logic through reasoning. Albeit, 3 and 6 year old reasoning-but reasoning nonetheless.

One darned good looking lad, and CLEAN! I like clean.

Good- That makes two of us who do not understand them! For instance, my 7 year old arrived at your house with no coat on (single digits) because he said he did not need one! I let him go that way, thinking he will learn from his mistakes (someday)! Thanks for having them over- it is always eye opening to have more than a couple of boys! Take it from me...3 is quite the work when they are your own. When Cameron is over, it mellows out the three I have and things go well!
