I went to the grocery store today with Seth and Kane. I was picking out cereal when a woman walking passed me said, "Well you certainly have your hands full!" To which I replied, "You have no idea!" I giggled to myself as she walked away.
Then two other women mistook Seth for a girl, telling me that Kane was so lucky to have such a sweet older sister! Again I laughed. I'm pretty sure its his hair that confuses people. I had just spent the morning trying to talk him into cutting it, as its a little high maintenance. He's adamant that he wants to keep it long so instead of a buzz cut I gave him a trim and told him he'd have to start brushing it himself in the mornings. As long as the comments don't bother him we'll leave it.
We stopped at the dollar store and bought Evan a huge map of the USA. After we got home I snuck into his room and taped it to the wall next to his bed. Once it was up I found Evan in the living room and with no explanation sent him to his room. He was so confused! I followed him and watched as his face went from perplexed to surprise to delight! Then we sat on his bed together going over the names of each state. He's an interesting kid.
The weather is beautiful here. The rest of the week is supposed to be in the 80s. I'm so excited! Time to get out my jeans!
