It has been an interesting week with Seth gone. I finally finished painting this cute doll house that Michael made for Syd, to store her toys. When we put it in her room and I showed it to her, I said what do you think? she responded "I don't know (pause) Wow! I love it!" It was very cute. She loves to put he swimming suit on and say I'm going swimming with Papa. Papa Wheeler that is, I think that she only thinks that she can swim in CA. It has been fun hanging out with her and enjoying her personality with out Seth around. She has been very protective of her brother things while he has been gone and will not let anyone play with them. She has also started sleeping in his bed while he has been away. I am not sure if she will want to give it up for him. He may have to take the top bunk. Sydney did a lot better with Seth gone than I thought she would. I think the puppy we recently got named Tico has been a great distraction. I can't believe that we have a dog. He is toy austrlian shepard and is actually a very good puppy. He doesn't bark which I love and he is great with the kids.The kids named the pup after a cartoon charcter on Dora.
He really didn't want to stay put for the picture.
Life has been pretty uneventful and really quiet with Seth in TN. I am so glad that he has had a ball and talking to Mommy and Daddy has been almost torture for him. I realize that my little boy is growing up and that makes me a little sad. It will be intresting to have him back even though Michael and I leave the day after he returns to go to San Fransico. I will be a patient for my brothers Dental Exams. It will be fun to have a weekend with Michael even though it was like pulling teeth to get him to come but hopefully he will enjoy the weekend.
