James and I are hanging out on my bed, folding towels. He was helping.
And have I taken those 4 month pictures yet? NO of course not. In five days he'll officially be 5 months old, so...I guess that's that.
I've had this whole week off of work, even. And what I've discovered is that my productive days vs my lazy days are a ratio of about 1:1. What I've also learned is that I would so love to be a stay at home mom. I mean, yesterday we found ourselves killing time waiting for the fabric store to open by walking to a little mexican restaurant we'd seen but never stopped at, where the owner lady let us in before they opened and made me horchata and chips & salsa and offered me no less than 3 employment opportunities, where James learned that he liked sucking on tortilla chips and DOES NOT like it when mom takes them away. And before that we tried patroning the international market along the way, but the single and only store clerk was full-on napping. Not just nodding off: he was stretched prone on a bench with his feet on a chair he had to pull over specifically so he could nap. I mean, he's either got nothing figured out, or he's got it all figured out.
And how can we have adventures like that when we're at work, I ask you?
And now for something completely different. I've been wondering what you all think about disclosing your children's names on the internet, in your blogs. I've never seen what the big deal is - I can show you their pictures but not tell you their names? - but a lot of people seem to do the nickname thing and so maybe there's a good reason. Or maybe it's just a fad. I don't know. What do you think?
