We're on the 'puter

I never thought I'd do it, but I now have a blog. I love keeping track of friends and family that I don't get to see often very often via their blogs, and I thought this would be a good way for others to keep track of us ... especially grandparents (you know who you are)! Which leads me to the title of my blog ...

"The Children" has double meaning: 1) This blog will mostly be about my children. They are my life. Not like, "Oh, I love them so much, they are my life" (although I do, and they are), but more like they literally are my life. With 2 crazy boys I don't do a whole lot more than keep track of them. 2) More than a few times we've been called "The Children" because our last name is "Childs." Yes, the incorrect plural of "child"; hence, "children." There you go.

And here they are ... the children:



These were taken at Christmas (obviously), but I don't have any great recent pictures. Evan is now 3 and Owen is almost 7 months. And this will have to do for our first post since Evan wants to use the computer, Owen needs to eat, and there is lots of laundry waiting for me.

Yes, I know who I am. As a grandparent of the two greatest grandkids in the world, I am going to enjoy this immensely.

Betsy--I know, it is about time, huh. And you have the great honor of being the first to comment. Bravo, and thank you! By the way, are you still with the new awesome??? I check it all the time, but not much is happening lately ...

mej--Thanks! Glad to know you have a blog, too. This is what I'm talking about ... now I will feel like I know a little bit more about what is going on in your life, since I only see you once a month!

Pada Jones--I thought you might. Yeah, they pretty much are the cutest kids in the world (just like everyone else's, right?). :)

Yea for you! Im glad you have a blog now! Just so you know, there will never be a good time to get on the puter. It seems that there is always ten things more important but you blog anyways!

I can't believe Betsy was the first one to comment... what's up with that, you're MY friend!!!!

Well anyway, I'm super excited you've joined the blogosphere, maybe someday I'll do it too!

(p.s. Suz & I didn't make it to the movies because Emma was home sick... so let's all get together soon for girl's night out)

Jen--Sounds good. I was not very happy when I went to Roundtable the other night and found NO ONE THERE!!! It makes me feel a little bit better that you guys didn't get to go out and have fun, too. :)

Yay! This will give me one more thing to look forward to every day! And one more thing to do instead of homework!
