Every have one of those days where you start out more tired than the night before? That's me today!
Our day yesterday was very hectic with Sopes in town. We signed the lease, had the kids out of school early to make the most of his day home and taped a segment for Sportsnet. Leave it to my daughters to respond with, "Wierd and freaky", when asked about my blog. Seriously, why the hell wasn't that ever mentioned BEFORE cameras were rolling?
It's going to be Christmas before we see him again, so cuddle time was needed. It's pretty hard for Sopes and I to find a private moment in the house - let alone when the kids are all home. We had to tell them that we needed to have a private conversation upstairs. When we came down Lyla and Jake were laughing. We kept asking what was going on, but they wouldn't say a word. Finally, Jayla spoke up and said, "Is kissing sex?" We told them we had called Santa and read their Christmas lists to the elves. What else do you say? Sopes tried to tell Jake that Mom and Dad love each other, right there I stopped him! For a 12yr. old, nothing Dad could say would make it better - just more awkward.
Jake had to be at school by 7 this morning for his music class. It's hard enough getting him out of bed on a normal day, but 7am to sing was crazy. He was pretty pissed off, but I can't blame him. If it wasn't 50% of his grade, I doubt he would have even mentioned it. Lyla on the other hand was at school by 7:30 for chorus, but couldn't be more excited - girls are different.
Here are a couple pictures that were taken by Sportsnet yesterday at the house. Big kudos to Patrick Grier and Matt Marstrom for being so kind and respectful!~
