(11) Mon Feb 27 2006 22:02 Thinking Thoughts: I never get baby hungry during the day. My hands are too full, and the boys keep me running to catch up. Another child right now would be utter insanity. I know that. But when they are asleep, looking cherubic in their fuzzy pajamas, cuddling innocently with a favorite stuffed leopard or doggie, I think, "Wahhh, I want to have another baby--they are so sweet and wonderful." The problem is, the children are asleep. . .

All the sweeter to enjoy when you are ready again.

I have sensed this for a while now, I was just waiting for you to say it. David is almost done with school, catch your breath and then "move forth boldly," as HGF would say in his delighful tone of voice.

Samuel and Atticus have been talking about their wishes lately. If granted one wish, Atticus says that he would have ten arms growing out of his back. Samuel wants a dog. A real dog. Not another one of his many toy dogs. Atticus always seems to quickly point out to Samuel why he can't have a dog--our landlord, Kermit, has a no-pet rule (fortunately for us). Noone has to explain to Atticus that his dream is not possible. Samuel's wish will not be deterred by our present situtation. Yesterday he explained that he'd name his future dog Silky--some of you will know why.

I just have to say that seeing those cute pictures of your little boys (even being awake) makes me want more children. Of course still shots without sound are similar to sleeping children-- all the cuteness with none of the stress.

I can get him a Maltese or a Yorkie with papers for $200. We have an aquaintance here who breeds them, but Louise says that they are the kinds of dogs that should be made into slippers.

Is your landlord really named Kermit??

He claims to be the original Kermit. He really is named Kermit. He kind-of looks like Kermit-the-frog, too.

I hope his parents didn't look at him when he was born, then name him after a frog...

Theodore Roosevelt's In-Laws were surnamed Kermit, and he named one of his children Kermit as well.
