We got a new (to us) computer a little while ago and everything is all changed around. I was going to write a whole thing about how I'm kind of dumb and can't remember how to do things unless I've done them a thousand times. But, long story short, I have to upload the pictures off my camera onto the computer in a different way so now I hardly ever do it. I just wait for Jeremy to have time to do it for me, but that's like waiting for Tyler to remember he used to love naps and that they are indeed fun.
So this morning I summoned the courage to plug the camera in and pull the pictures off it. That's when I came across these pictures I took last week. The kids were having a "tea party".
There are three cups out, and if you look at the left side of this picture you'll see who the third guest is.
Alexis had taken a picture of Jeremy that I keep on my nightstand, (is that weird that I have a picture of him on my nightstand when he sleeps right next to me?) and poured him a cup of "tea" so that they could have a tea party with daddy.
It's a good thing they are creative because I'm fairly certain that's the closest Jeremy will ever come to having a tea party with them. Tea parties are boring, and I only do them occasionally because I have a guilty mother's conscience. Jeremy is not burdened with the same.
Sometimes I wonder if I'm doing right by Tyler. He plays a lot of "girly" games with Alexis, and his new favorite movie is Barbie Fairytopia. He even cried the other day because he wanted to watch that and Alexis wanted to watch something else. (Someday he'll hate me for telling everybody that.) But he very much loves dinosaurs and cars and wrestling, and I've never seen him dress up in Alexis' clothes.
Voluntarily, I mean.
