I'm Astute Like That.

So my boy missed me. I could tell by the way he kept snuggling into my lap and bowing his head so that I could give him kisses. I'm astute like that. I pick up on those subtle nuances. "Kiss me, mother!" And his face split into this amazing grin when I walked over to him while he was playing with the dishwasher. I thought about that smile before I went to sleep.

I got an email last night saying that my story was going into the final round for A Cup of Comfort for Parents of Children with Special Needs. Say that ten times fast! Anyway, I'm excited. I wrote about the time that Niko nearly burned down the house while trying to use the toaster. Whether or not they choose to publish it, I'm pleased that I was finally able to write something about Niko and Williams without curling up and dying. Like everything else, it only gets easier.

Speaking of dying, I start my motorcycle class tonight. My friend June is going to wrangle my kids for two days while I'm gone! Then I'm going to nominate her for sainthood. Luke and I are in negotiations about a bike. The Free Spirit vs. The Accountant. I'll tell you how that goes.

You rock, I wish I had the guts to ride a street bike. I have ridden dirt bikes but you don't have to stay within too many lines:)

Don't you just love how they give you their head to kiss. I waiting so long for Lila to finally offer up her soft pillow lips. Now she will do it every so often, then wipe her mouth, lol.
take care Tes

Good luck with that one... And your story. That's exciting! I won't venture to say A Cup of Comfort for Parents of Children with Special Needs ten times fast, however. I'll leave that to the free spirit and the accountant! ;)
