I have to apologize to friends and family, I just have not been able to get it together this week. There is so much stuff I’m supposed to be doing: laundry, cleaning, cooking, working, working out, taking care of kid….blah, blah, blah. I feel like doing none of it. I coordinated a really huge event last week, and I think it sucked the life out of me.
James is showing signs of feeling better; he asked us if he could show him how many times he could hop on one foot. The kid has hopping skills, he bounced up and down for a REALLY long time.
James asked me recently if I wanted to hop with him, and I turned him down, but not without a brief twinge of guilt. He responded by saying, “that’s OK Mama, you are brittle in your bones.”
I have a new love for the zoo. Watching his excitement, reminds me of the wonder I felt when I was his age visiting the zoo. I feel a little less brittle.
This video really has very little to do with James other than his Mama has a “thing” for meerkats. Well, the kid that you can hear yelling really loudly, especially at the end, calling for his Dad, that would be James. But enough about him, how could you not think meerkats are adorable? Seriously, they are one of the few wild animals (other than bats) that demonstrate true altruism. Teenage meerkats babysit their elder’s pups, and….they’re fuzzy, what’s not to like?
Update: James is not better, he still has a fever, has a rash all over including his tongue and tonsils, and private parts. He has his first case of strep. Yeah for him.
