I see London. I see France. I see JCK's underpants. Indeed? No, JCK has not reverted to her Kindergarten days...yet. However, her pants ARE bursting with Christmas glee... Yes, JCK is sporting the latest in post-Christmas HOT Frontal Fashion....Le laissez-faire du top Bouton. For those of you not in the know of slaughtered Francais, JCK has loosened her top buttons. Of her pants. Out of necessity. The Motherscribe household has gone from gettin' jingly with it...to...let's get jiggly with it. Alas, the cookies and fudge were too damn good.
When not surviving on SUGAR, JCK has been a virtual whirlwind. Spinning like a top through BOY & GIRL's room, sorting, discarding, giving away, organizing... JCK is not sure where the motivation is coming from, but she is going with it.
JCK also did some good old fashioned crying. Because how could BOY & GIRL have once been as tiny as these little clothes at the back of the closet reveal. Oh....where has the time gone? Sometimes JCK is overwhelmed by the sadness of what is no...more.
Yet, the fun of a 5 and a 6 year old is delicious, too. BOY showing GIRL how to make snowflakes with paper and scissors. GIRL showing BOY how to fold napkins. BOY pulling a book out of the bookshelf and realizing that he can read it. And reading it to GIRL... GIRL spending over 2 hours on Christmas day making her own storybook. The beauty of seeing them covered in dirt and grass stains, so young and free and happy.
It's been a good Christmas season, and JCK is looking forward to the New Year. 2010 feels like a great number. She wants to spend more time writing here. And elsewhere.
