Off to a great start

So, I've done so well with my blog this year. Can you tell? I mean, 3 whole posts so far. And it's not any better on my other blog.

And it's not that I don't want to blog...or that I don't have anything to blog about. I've just lacked the motivation to even fathom putting my thoughts, feelings, etc. into words.


Matt upgraded his gym/YMCA membership to a family one. That was part of his Christmas gift to Zachariah and I. I've been slowly getting into going there and working out. It's a much needed change in my life. I have a long way to go, but I'm glad to have the chance to start.

Today I went to workout for a while and left Zachariah in the babysitting area. Have I told you how social my child is? Some people cannot believe that he isn't in school. He will probably be a social butterfly.

When I left him at the babysitting center, there were many kids, so he ran off to play. By the time I got back, there was only one other younger child in there with Zachariah and the two women working. He was sitting on the floor with both adults just talking away. Looked like they were having a great discussion.

They told me that he was telling them he wants to be a teacher (new to me). He was teaching them to spell their names. Ha ha ha! And his name too. So cute. He was literally quizzing them on things.

On the way out I was talking to him about wanting to be a teacher. He said he'd also like to work in a restaurant like the girl we saw the other night. Oh my.

When we were out to eat last week, Zachariah started watching one of the waitresses. We only realized after he started blowing her kisses. Then he told us, "She's cute". (I tell you, we're in trouble with this one.) Later she came near our table, and he caught her eye. He said "I was blowing you kisses." She sort of giggled and came closer to talk to him. I told her he thought she was cute. It was so funny. So now I guess he wants to work with her.

If he's like this now, what am I in for when he has raging hormones to boot?

Oh boy - sounds like he's going to be a handful ;)

My, my, a little charmer. My middle one is like this. He loves everyone and everyone loves him. It's a lot of fun, but yes, a lot of worry for those hormone years!!

Uh oh. Mr Ladies Man in tiny form is SO cute!!

Jana said...

So cute! It sounds like he's going to be one of those genuinely sweet charmers, not one of those creepy stalker types. Just think of all the little girls he'll have swooning over him!

Becky said...

What a charmer you've got!

Oh, that is too funny! lol

Sarah said...

Oh, maybe we'll run into each other at the Y now! Except that as you get INTO it, I might be taking a hiatus per the doctor's recommendation. Because apparently I can't even handle the stress of CARDIO without it wrecking my hormones! We'll see...
Also, Zac sounds so precocious! He's spelling strangers' names? That is awesome!

Those anecdotes make me thing that maybe we should NEVER get our kids together:

1) They'd never stop talking.

2) They'd probably fall in love.

:-) I'm kidding of course.

Talk about Prince Charming! - he sounds so cute and funny. My boy would probably just ask her if she would play pirates with him (absolutely no je ne se quo)
