As of 7:30p.m. this is the state of the Enos house...

When Jeff's out of town I like to enforce an early bedtime. It's almost like a peace comes over me knowing that the kids are all safe and sleeping and it's quiet. I am very productive when I can actually have a couple of hours of quiet. Sometimes I just do meaningless things just to avoid the noise and chaos but this peaceful feeling helps me appreciate my life/kids/husband so much. Thank you for early bedtimes...it doesn't always happen but I am so grateful when it does.

A pre-schooler!

When did this happen? David started pre-school last Wednesday and only cried because I had the audacity to pick him up from school. Seriously, am I that scary that my kids can't wait to go to school and hate it when it's over? Since David didn't make the age cut-off for a LAUSD free pre-school I thought it would be a good idea for him to test the waters for a semester before he actually has to start next fall. It's also nice to only have Vanessa to drag around with my errands. Vanessa loves having all the attention and it's kind of nice to have the peace of having a quiet baby(for now at least).

Everyone look at the camera!

This was our attempt at a family shot...one of Jeff's little things that he insists on. Kids look great, except for Vanessa's mad face.

David's Drama

A converstation I had with David when he noticed that the Christmas decorations were all gone.

David: Mommy, the tree! Where's it?
Me: We put it away because it's not Christmas anymore.
David: But I don't wanna Christmas to be done. (starts to cry)
Me: Do you want some raisins?
David: Mommy, you hurt my feelings.
Everytime I say something that David doesn't like, he cries and declares that I hurt his feelings.

I've been letting David's hair grow out...and Jeff finally had enough of the bushy hair and cut it while I was taking a nap.

This picture was taken about a month ago.

This morning.
