1st grade journal...

Everyday, Emi has to write a journal entry about a certain subject in class. Yesterdays was "What if children were the parents?". Here is her entry:
"I would have to do the laundry. I would make the food. I would have to drive them to school. I would not get to play with my toys. I would not like it. And I will have to feed them. I will do stuff on the computer. I will do everything moms do. I will like a little bit. I like being a kid!"
#1....I'm depressed about my life after seeing it on paper, #2..I'm so glad I've painted such a sad picture of motherhood for my daughter. She'll never want kids. But, I am glad she likes being a kid. I hope she stays that way for awhile!

As for my dad, he was moved into the rehab center yesterday. Long term memory is there, but is getting confused with some short-term things. His biggest thing is that he constantly wants to leave. He thinks he can (typical for where his stroke was). We also want to keep him free of pneumonia, also a common side-effect. But, let's just say, I'm so glad it's not LAST thursday. Hopes for a good recovery!

That is the best picture of all of our lives! Thanks Emi for putting all on paper since we wouldn't!

Glad about your Dad.

I'm just impressed with her writing ability. Luke's would have said about four words. At least she appreciates you.

Thanks for the update on your dad.

I LOVE the 1st grade journals. I probably should have kept Fischer's and bound them because they were hilarious. Enjoy them all year. I'm sure the teachers get such a kick.

Glad things have improved with your dad.

And...that was a hilarious journal entry. Don't be discouraged--it's funny!

Yeah, that is pretty much a mom's life... Emi's got it all figured out.

So glad to hear your dad is improving!

I am just now catching up on my blog reading and I'm sorry to hear about your dad. But glad things are looking better. I'll keep him in my prayers.
