So yeah, it's been awhile. Bad blogger. For the past month or so I've really been off my game and haven't much felt like communicating happy with anyone, much less you lovely people. I'm working on it. It isn't that I've been feeling consistently gloomy, there have just been a seemingly steady stream of discord and frustration and I'd rather keep that icky to myself. So my absence hasn't been personal. You all continue to be awesome. Thank goodness.
During this dry spell I have learned something interesting about myself; I can throw peace out the window when it comes to my grandchildren. This little piece of walking adorableness......
.......got, well, basically beat up on the bus and I lost my marbles. Miss Peace in Our Time, wanted to go over and have some very not so peaceful words with the perpetrator of the punching and kicking. And her parents. Especially her parents. But you know what? Kysa and Josh handled it beautifully and so did Cam. She has forgiven and forgotten and continues to be friends with the child. Myself, I'm still keeping an eye on this kid and have rededicated to daily meditation because, seriously, I went from peace to WTF way to quickly. Tiger Grandparenting!
In happier occurrences, there was birthday fun at Monkey Joes on Sunday for these two:
Emerson turned 3 on September 4th and Cambria turns 6 on October 19, so they decided to have a joint celebration. Monkey Joes is an awesome place to be a kid and a great place for a party.
Can you even believe this cake?
Isn't that little face just the best?
Izzy and Cam share the same birthday and a super sweet love for each other. We are all lucky to have Izzy in our lives. She is such a bright little light.
That's it for today. I'm going to try and get back into the blogging mode again. If you're interested, I'm hollyschmidt57 on instagram. I've joined the #100happydays challenge so I usually post at least one pic a day over there.
Hugs from me to you!
