Finishing...

I finally mailed off Minnow's N-600 yesterday. So he is on his way to officially--in the eyes of the US government--being a US citizen.

Okay, so I am not the perfect parent. I have gotten my poor impressionable toddler addicted to Spongebob Squarepants. Minnow loves "bun bob" as he says it. He picks up and hands me the remote in the morning and says "bun bob, bun bob." I have been pretty vigilant about not letting him watch too much. Yes, I know for many of you uberparents out there that any TV at his age is too much. We are a tv watching household, so let me just say that I don't really think TV is the real bad guy. I don't use it at a babysitter. We watch it together and usually play while we watch it. It is only on for a limited amount of time--yes there are somedays when it is on more than others--it is hard when the weather is bad and we are cooped up inside. I admit my imperfection and embrace it. It is nice to have the pressure taken off about being perfect...

Summer is fast coming to a close. We go on vaction a week from today. We will be in Indiana Dunes national park, where my brother has a country home 3 blocks from Lake Michigan. We will hopefully be enjoying some fun in the sun and playing on the beach.

Minnow has been home for almost a year now. It is so hard to believe that a year has passed already as I remember so very vividly what it felt like this time last year, knowing we were leaving to meet our son in less than a month. What an amazing time it was and what an amazing time it has been. I could not even imagine the slightest bit what joy our little one would bring us.
