Week with my boys

On Sunday Tom and faith drove up to Pennsylvania to see his mom. Rebecca, his mom, has been diagnosed with cancer. She is at home and being cared for by her husband and and daughter. It is a lot for anyone to handle the “Dressler invasion”, but even more so now for Rebecca, Will and Shelly. We thought this would be great time for Tom, faith and Rebecca to get some quality time together. They had a great time. I asked Faith, “How was MaMaw’s?” She replied,”Awesome!” They obviously had fun. Faith got to go to Chocolate World in Hershey and make her own candy bar. All I know is that there was marshmallow in it.

While Tom and faith were off having fun, I was at home having fun with wilson and miller. Let me state that I love faith and life would be miserable without her, but wow! I am amazed how much easier two kids are than three. I discovered out why this is so: two kids will do the same activity without problem, but with three, one always wants to do something else. Two want to play outside, one wants to go inside. Two want to eat, one wants to draw. Three is much more difficult to juggle. I always say that I could go to the moon with one kid!

Needless to say, the boys and i had fun. We played games, we looked for bugs at the playground, they took a bath instead of going to the pool, and we just hung out.

We went to the pool one afternoon with Doug and his family. It almost rained but thankfully it never thundered.

I also took them to get my car’s oil changed and taught Miller to drink milk out of his cereal bowl.

Faith and Tom came home on Wednesday night. She has been glues to my side ever since. I even slept in her room with her a couple of nights. She wanted to have a slumber party. It was sweet to be missed so much. I missed her as well.
