Wordy Wednesday #31: I Spoke too Soon

Last week, I bemoaned the end of summer. Lo and behold, it's bloody hot again. Not only that, but the breeze whipping up feels like the Santa Ana winds. We're way too north to experience those. I thought. Accompanying this very hot air and warm wind are the nearly non-stop sounds of fire engine's sirens. All day yesterday, as I heard the sirens going this way and that, I stopped to wonder if they were headed anywhere near us. So far, so good.


So, yeah, it's officially autumn. To celebrate, Youngest decided to romp in the pool. He knows I officially "close" it at the end of September, so he's thrilled that his remaining days of pool time are warm ones.


Here he is, being his silly self. I miss having that silly self with myself for most of the day. In many ways, he's such a third kid. [If you don't get the reference, you're not a parent to three or more.] My missing him marks him forever as the baby. And such a "water baby" at that.

If you are missing having a silly one around during the day, I'd be glad to send mine over until our school resumes. Don't worry, we are scheduled to go back Monday so it'll only be for a few days. ;)

I know the feeling. I miss mine terribly all day. Then, I wish someone else would make dinner and clean it up so I could hang out with the kids instead of slaving in the kitchen. Oh wait, it's pizza night! OH, I mean, it's chinese food night! Or, is it frozen waffle night? Hmmm,

It's weird how much I miss my kids in the day...
They still drive me nuts in the evening though.
