Welcome to my new and improved Blog.

I decided it was time for a change!

I write this Blog for me, no one else, just me. It is a way to think outloud, and to share my experiences with the world. Maybe some will be interested and some will not, and who knows, I might figure something out myself. I will talk about whatever comes to my mind, and sometimes it is hard for me to do, but I will do it anyway.

I enjoy photography so you will see a lot of my work. I love to read and you will see quotes from my favorite authors. Generally follow my life as try to obtain my undergrad in Art History and English at Carleton University.

Please read, enjoy and comment, open disscussion is welcome.

What can you do with an almost 6 year old boy how is never at a lose for questions and talks and talks and talks till your escaping to here to hide and have some peace and quiet for a few minutes.
I really don't have a clue
We've played games.
He decides to take them apart.
He plays with his cars...and takes them apart.
Then gets mad because he can't put them back together.
I've tried getting to work on school type stuff. Tells me he's not interested. SIGH WHY?
He is scared to be alone anywhere in the house.
He is always yelling MOMMY !!! WHERE ARE YOU?
He won't fall asleep at night. I'm back to laying down with him. If I don't it's been midnight for over a week. I've got to sleep and so does he.
He's back talking and he is in time outs steady. Becasue he is tired. And is bored I bet.
As the day progesses I end up loosing my patience and yelling.
Sorry I yelled that.
I hate myself but I'm counting the minutes till bedtime each and every day.
I can't afford to take him to museums all the time. The Gas alone would break me.
One question leads to another and to the point where I'm not even smart enough to answer them and say just because. Then he gets mad because I should just tell him the answer. Glad you think I'm that smart buddy but an engineer would have trouble answering your questions.
How many more days Till I leave for newfoundland for 6 days? And then how many more days till school starts.
I have him enrolled in swimming lessons that starts in July twice a week. I hope the exercise will help.
He is nagging me for new toys all the time. BUT he has sooo blasted many he can't possibly play with them all. I don't give in all the time but then I feel so Mean seeing those big tears rolling down his face.
Good Gravy his birthday is the 29th of July!!!
HELP any and all ideas welcome.
They grow up soon right?

When you figure it out let me know. The questions in the car on our trip were killing us, especially since A doesn't say a word, we are starting to see that J is really just a chatty cathy.
