Super Baby

I wanted you all to know that I'm alive....

I'm still utterly exhausted and making less sense than ever before, poor Lisa B came by my house for a visit and I think that I made absolutely no sense at all, blathering on about ummm, damn I can't even remember what?

Some strange person, maybe my husband suggested we let the boys stay home and hang out for a few weeks before we decide what we were going to do for summer camp. And the previous week they had spent at school doing not very much except having parties and performing at their end of school concert so they are now bored. And since I had to attend all of these events, I'm exhausted.

Bored children + tired mother equals kids who bicker endlessly about absolutely nothing while mother pulls hair out.

Plus it's all been very emotional here, what with Kaz going to his welcome day at his new school, and trying on uniforms, and although I know that he is still my baby, and he isn't going anywhere really-----I'm having a heart attack here people!!!!!

My baby is going to high school. This is NOT good. Next thing you know he'll be wanting to pick out his own clothes, and feed himself, and then----move out and leave me forever!!!! Some horrible woman will take him away and marry him I'll bet. Grrrrrrrrr....

As we speak he is holding onto baby Julius and playing "Super Baby" basically where Julius gets held horizontally face down, and zoomed around the house. His secret identity is maintained by a soother, sort of like Clark Kent's was maintained by those glasses. I'm laughing and crying simultaneously.

Yes, I am hOrMoNal.

Why do you ask?


  1. Ah yes, the hormones. They are fun aren't they? I am so sorry that you are having such a tough time. But it sounds like you are doing a great job with all of them. You are a great mom!!!

  2. Oooh... me too. Hadas got into a great high school - only it means she has to live in the dorms, in Jerusalem. I went away when I was even younger than she is, but I'm so not ready to let go...

  3. Why do they have to grow up???? Mine is going into 2nd grade this fall. I have no idea where time went.

  4. I know exactly how you feel, although I don't have the hormones to give me a good reason to be *NUTS*. My little one is two and I'm already lamenting the end of the baby stage. Heaven help me when she goes off to school!
    Glad you're still alive, but wish I could sub for you while you got some SLEEP already.

  5. Awww superjulius sound soooo sweet. Am sorry I missed that. Super Julia is sucking on my arm. guess she's hungry.

    You made total sense and were quoting stats at me as per usual. I think you really need to take it easier but I know you cannot make yourself.

  6. I hope the woman he marries insn't horrible...
    Why must the grow up?

  7. I can't imagine having to keep up with two older kids and a new baby. You're doing great. When can Kali and I come and bring you food?

  8. Heh heh - surely Kaz will "pick a winner", but as I'm telling all my friends: I'm too YOUNG to have a 10-yr old ;-) !!
