Reality Check

I was locking the front door this morning when I looked down and saw not a baby standing there, but a toddler who will be 2 (and talking back to me) before I know it.

Where did the time go?

I can't believe my son has grown so much. His personality is so much fun, he's usually always happy (unless he gets into something he should not and Mommy gets into him), very stubborn, and very attached to those he loves. He has a little girlfriend at daycare who he manhandles when he's not terrorizing his provider. I have seen this, he grabs her by the bib or hair, and I have to separate them...which is hard because she's usually on one knee and he's on the other. I want a girl now. :-)

Work is going well and has gone full-time. My boss pulled a number on me. He calls me into his office and says, "Sam, I regret to say your part-time job has ended...and is being replaced with a full-time job." The man is lucky I like him so much! I almost died!

The Krzewski family can definitely use the extra money. I find myself feeling a lot more peaceful as of late, as I realize that we are in a much better situation than we were last year. That and I also realize that I can't take the migraines that come from stressing over that which we can't immediately change. We are able to do more on our own to maintain our household, and with Steve in school and graduating in a year-and-a-half, we'll be able to do even more. The most exciting thing for me is the example we're setting for Little Steve: both of his parents college graduates.

Of course Big Steve understands that once I am ordained he has to go to church. That's another five years down the road, so "Reverend Backslide" can have ample time to prepare. I understand his misgivings, though. I had to point out in my last class, ironically called worldviews, that people may not be rejecting Christianity because they reject Christ, but rather because of the abhorrent behavior of many of his followers. Of course one should never use the Bible to prove your point, because then you're "not Christian". Whatever, bite me. It's there, you can read, either come up to speed or continue to wonder why no one around you is interested in your faith. I'm glad that class is over. Now on to History (a much more neutral subject, ha!) and a 1001 page book. Reminds me of my Old Testament class, a book just as huge with the entire OT to read as well.

Can you say no novels for a while?

Today is payday (why do I get so excited when I'm not going to see any of it). I'm waiting to get my check. Have to go get Steve from work because Metro has gone beserk and their fare hikes kind of hit us in the middle of our budget. Note to self: check their site today.

Well, that's all that's going on over on this end. I'm including a few pictures of the boy, he's growing so fast! I'm going to blink and he'll be going to prom. :-(

This is often how we find him on the weekends when we leave him to his Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and a warm bottle.

Last weekend.

Steven's girlfriend, Audrina AKA "Gooey"

My feeble attempts to keep him from rolling off the bed after bath time while I get all of his supplies.

That was part of a rake, but he broke it and then proceeded to alternate between eating it and chasing me.

Somebody's tired...

Mommy loves her baby.

I like to swing!!!

Little Man loves baths. He runs whenever we open the bathroom door. Sadly he fell and bumped his head Sunday evening because I had just gotten out of there and the tile floor was wet. I can't stand to see him in pain, but he's fine now. I know I'll be kissing plenty more "owwies" in the future.


  1. What a growing cutie! And congrats on the full time. Does that come with benefits? I'm so happy you are doing so well! Prayers continue. Hugs.

  2. Hey Shel! Been a while. The job will come with benefits as soon as they get a new provider. They're in negotiations right now. Thanks for the compliment on Little Man, he is a happy handful. I hope that all is well with you, I need to be checking out your blog soon!

  3. it is incredible how quickly the time melts away. and what a handsome little boy you have :)

  4. Awww, thank you. I love your blog. I didn't realize that you had started following mine. Your writing style absolutely rocks. Reading your blog is like therapy to me. :-)
