Would have, should have

Ziggy would have and should have started kindergarten today.

I have so many friends with children doing just that and am startled by this experience. It hit me today, seeing their pictures and videos of "drop off" that I, too, should be among them leaving my almost six-year old son at his first day of school. I am feeling so very, very sad today.

Summer /07

I would say it's hot as hell now, but I'm a Baptist so I shouldn't. But it is! Duncan is getting haircuts, and hating them, going to shady playgrounds, and sweating like he's at Dallas Cowboys Training Camp (dang it's hot) and just having lots of fun like two year old boys should. Our life has many things that are stressful, and difficult, but when we are with him it just isn't so bad. Sounds corny, I know. But it's true. Iain still needs a new job. Bad. Badder than bad. Money is scarce, and we need a new car, new dishwasher, new oven and want to have another baby. Oh yes. We really do. But that means money and travel and doctors. So, now that we are Baptists we are praying for that to happen.

I should not make light of being Baptist (Cooperative, by the way, not Southern). It has changed my life in many ways that hopefully one day I'll have the energy to blog about.

In the meantime, any of your out there who pray, please pray that Iain gets a new job very soon so we can try for another baby.

In the meantime, enjoy.
