Yesterday I was talking with a couple of friends about the seasons in our life, and how when you're a mom with young kids, there's things that never get done - like housework. And when your kids are grown, you have a clean house - assuming you have the energy and inclination to do it. I thought I'd show you a glimpse into my current "season" with Connor.

This is what I have to put up with in order to get on the computer.

Last night he and I discovered a new fun game. Ben had turned on America's Funniest Videos, and I was laughing at something on the TV. Connor looked up and started laughing, too - an obviously fake laugh. Which of course made me laugh all the harder. We got a video of it, but of course the lighting was terrible and I'm using my small digital camera - but you get the idea.

He's also into EVERYTHING

And he very VERY mobile.

Enjoyed looking at the antics of this energetic little fellow. About the housework, I fall into the latter category, the one with no kids at home and a clean, clutter-free house. I remember the days you're going through quite well,however. Just the other day, I was thinking of how this friend and "sister" would come to visit, and every single time she'd sort of saunter over to the counter/bar that separated the kitchen from the den, and she'd begin straightening things out. It evidently drove her nuts, but I was so busy with dinner, dishes, clothes, and so forth that I hadn't even noticed.

We lean towards clean... although I seem to have forgotten how to cook for two people!
