letters to beth {batman drawing, 2-5 church, & baby ready}

dear beth,
i can't believe bear is turning 2!!! it seems like you were just here celebrating, and it's already been an entire year. our babies are growing up so fast, wah!!! i am so baby hungry, but then all three of my kids cry at once for hours and hours and hours, and brennan and max fight all day, and i think, eh, i'm not sleep deprived ready, no patience ready, or ready for my life to be turned upside down ready. and then i think, let's give it another year. sean thinks the woman brain is hilarious and fascinating all at the same time. thank goodness he loves me for it.

tell me about smith's new school, what is the name for your children's book.do you have one yet? my kids will be sooooooo excited to hear that you are writing a book. they ask all the time when you are coming over next. i can't WAIT to see your illustrations. your batman flying over the city drawing is still the coveted drawing in the house. my children TREASURE it, and it has a designated safe spot behind the bread bowl. it has had some additions made to it, which i'm sure you will think are charming. brennan is sooooo into drawing right now, and i love it. right this very minute he is drawing a motorcycle man. i love his attention to detail, and how he puts what he is drawing right next to his paper so it can be more real. i'm pretty sure he learned that from you when you drew the batman for him. he is really growing up.

chase is sick, so i am staying home from church with him. i am DONE with 2-5 church and am not ashamed to say that i feel like i've won the lottery to get to stay home with him. i realize i shouldn't be complaining b/c church is so close and easy to get to, but by this time in the year, i am just ready to go to church at a normal human being time. i don't think it matters if you have little kids, older kids, teenagers, or grown ups in your house. 2-5pm church is just not conducive to normal human sunday functioning. 

max is girly as ever, complete with drama and a capital D. she gets herself dressed before i get out of bed, AND this morning she even made her bed before 8am all by herself. she is so motivated and organized, and i'm wondering if it's just a girl thing or a max thing. either way, i know she is an up and at 'em kind of gal, and it makes for a more simple morning around the gibson home. 

happy anniversary my friend and congratulations! i am so happy for the both of you! 7 years and going strong. i hope you have some time to spend together and celebrate, but it seems like with little ones at home, sometimes those moments are hard to find. happy birthday to bear, ROOOOOAAARRRR!!!!!
