Life With Wee People: Mother's Day Musings (Every Day Is Mother's Day)



Life With Wee People: Mother's Day Musings (Every Day Is Mother's Day)

I have been writing this post since May. I keep deleting it. There are so many things that I can say about living and caring for learning disabled children. They are brilliant in some regards and clueless in another. They present with the quirkiest personalities I have ever seen. You never know a person until you live with them. I find myself wondering what my kids think about living with me (LOL).

I have CyberBabies. They have digital expectations. They expect to see themselves roaming across the Internet on Facebook, YouTube and their Mama's blog posts. They actually turn on the computer to look for themselves (LOL). It's really neat. Noah sits in front and Stephen climbs up on the chair so he can lean across his back, put his arms around his neck and watch what ever Noah decides they should be looking at in YouTube over his shoulder. It makes me very happy to see Noah so proud to be the older brother in control of their snacks and entertainment. He takes his job very seriously. Snack-age is serious business in my house  (LOL).

When they play nice I find myself thinking that every day is mother's day. Children are a blessing. They are a gift from God. You have to enjoy them when you can because you have no idea how much time you, or anyone else, has. I was thinking I would like to do something special for the pookies. The little minions have been such a joy to tease this week. We have tickets to the Museum we have yet to use. I think it's time to use 'em.

Lately, Noah's complaint has been the fact that we haven't been exploring enough houses. My boy has actually been telling me he wants to see a house. Hmm... that's what I get for convincing them they are mini-Realtors-in-training (LOL). Guess it's time for me to do another turtle run. Except I am not going to show him a regular house. I am going to show him buildings that he previously found very interesting that people do not live in. We're going to do landmarks and Museums. Technically they are houses... They are home to knowledge.

My pookies could use a culture break. How about you? Wanna do Manhattan with the wee people? I do... Was there yesterday and had a great time. Here's a little eye candy from my run with my blogging buddies in the rain (LOL). Shall be talking more about this later. ;-)

Lord C, my hat is off to you and I have boundless admiration for all that you get accomplished.  My boys, whom you've met, are not learning disabled and they are not toddlers or very young and it's hard to get things done with them around.  How you do it with two very active boys that keep you hopping almost 24 hours a day is a mystery.  You are a giant of a woman in my book.

Susan, thank you for the kind words, they are very much appreciated. The last two weeks have been a roller coaster ride. I'm going to take the wee ones visiting so we can unwind as a family. Next week we're going to visit with Aunt Paddy if we can get our schedules to mesh (LOL). She has a lovely (and huge) yard. They will be in grass heaven... :-)

Carolyn, thank you for sharing your wonderful day at the Museum. The music was awesome! You and your boys, eh? Very cool.

Posted by Maria Morton, Kansas City Real Estate 816-560-3758 (Platinum Realty) over 11 years ago

Maria, you are very welcome. Took the shorties to the zoo the other day in Brooklyn. I have to get that assembled and maybe arrange something new for the audio. :-)

Morning C.  Morning nephews.  Glad to see you are having a fun summer.  Can't wait to see the zoo trip.

Posted by Paddy (Patricia) Pizappi, Real Estate Associate Broker Hudson Valley NY (Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty) over 11 years ago

Paddy, the Prospect Zoo trip was neat. We had a lot of fun there. Looking forward to coming upstate for our next visit. :-)

It takes a special person to be able to fill your shoes. 

They are little gems when they are given to us.  We can't change them, our job is to polish them and make them shine!

Sheila, thank you for the kind words. I think that trying to polish the wee people is gonna be a real hoot. My boys are very self-dierected little buggers. I'm thinking music, art and dance classes should keep them busy - especially the dance classes (LOL). Stephen has a thing for dancing on the table (LMAO).

You're always up to something unique, C. Must run in the family genes. Some day those little minions are going to outshine you. Hey, what is the sculpture that looks like a giant pair of lips suspended over a bowl?


Posted by Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Realtor Top 1%, Put 40 years of experience to work for you (RE/MAX Gold) over 11 years ago

Thank you for sharing your life, your children and your world with us. You are such a contriuter and everyone's biggest fan. I am a MINION and Carolyn fan!!!!!

Posted by Cristal Drake, Realtor - Fullerton Real Estate (Prudential California Realty) over 11 years ago

Elizabeth, I have been trying to figure that sculpture out. It is an interesting piece. I may have to go back over there and ask someone before I say something stupid (LOL).

Cristal, thank you for the kind words, they are very much appreciated. I am a huge fan of the bay-bays (LOL). I love you guys. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) over 11 years ago

Hello C - I'd love to know more about that sculpture too! Let us know when you get the scoop!


Posted by Debi Boucher, "Realtor Showcase" - Real Estate Photography/Virtual Tours ( Real Estate Showcase Photography) over 11 years ago

Debi, I went back into Manhattan with my friend and it friggin' hailed on us (LMAO). Didn't see that coming. We had a blast but didn't get to take any new shots or read the plaques. Will try again before Sunday. :-)
