Our summer vacations are 42 days and tomorrow da boyz will be going back to Houston. They have been busy doing martial arts and have earned 10 stripes, with only 8 more to get to the next belt. This was a huge mile stone for them; but also for me because I was promoted to "step-mom" and not just Barbie. After three years of being called Barbie, I am okay with "step-mom" because it means the view that da boyz have on me in changing.
We have also found out that BabyBaby is a BabyBoy. Not just a BabyBoy but a healthy BabyBoy. I am still in shock because I was totally sure BabyBaby was going to be a BabyGirl. A week later, I am reminding myself that BabyBoy's are a mama's joy. I have ruled out name's that start with the letter "J" but that is as far as I have gone.
Joe and Kris's birthday (Kris is also in the above picture) is today and we will celebrate with a pizza party and a pool party, to follow, at my parents house. Even though these boys are not technically mine, they are mine for right now. I don't sleep when they have bad dreams or when thunder wakes them up. We wake each other up in the mornings and we spend our days together.
I am going to miss being a stay at home Mom for the summer and now I go back to work to be a working mother for the rest of the summer.
