Poor Sweety. Ever since he had the surgery to fix his busted discs, he has not been the same. Do you know how aggravating it is for all parties to exercise extreme caution every.single.time. they are having sex so someone doesn't hurt themselves? This morning, extreme caution was thrown to the wind and Sweety hasn't been able to sit up properly since. We weren't doing anything crazy like swinging from the ceiling fan but he managed to do something to hurt his neck. I hope he feels better tomorrow. No more pussy for him until the doctor gives him a clean bill of health.
We had a "first" this weekend. BigBrother(12) went somewhere with some friends and no parent was with them. The neighborgirls (ages 20, 18 and 16) were going to the fair and asked if him and LittleBrother(10) would like to go too. LB didn't want to (I think he was afraid that they'd want him to ride scary rides and he didn't want to do that.) so BB went alone. Sweety was kind of nervous because he's never been anywhere like that before but I told him that at some point we would have to let the boys leave the house without an adult and the neighborgirls are the best kids that I could think of that he could be out with. We took LB out to eat at a nice place and then went to the mall afterwards. It sure is quiet when you are toting around only one kid. Since his brother wasn't there to pick at him, LB had a chance to be a bit of a conversationalist. Regular conversation with him was much nicer than the constant stream of, "Owwww! Quit touching me!" that usually comes from the back seat.
