where we're at

Cal informed me, today, he doesn't like swim lessons, because they interfere with his play time.

Abbott is spending hours, every day, planning things related to (daydreaming about) his birthday in a couple of weeks.

Alexi is busy packing, planning, attending to every last detail for an upcoming vacation. I think sometimes he gets stuck in minutiae, but don't tell him I said so. I am more about the big picture. Move forward, fix the small things later. What would we do without each other?

Cal is right, vacation = play time!:)

Brilliant thought from Cal. I didn't like swim lessons much, so I swapped to a pool where I could swim just how I wanted and have been doing that ever since :D

I've been thinking about "I think sometimes he gets stuck in minutiae, but don't tell him I said so. I am more about the big picture. Move forward, fix the small things later." and realizing how I'm often in Alexi's frame of mind. I am trying to be a bit more big picture today. Thanks for the reminder. It feels good, liberating.

It is so very important to have a spouse who provides balance! I would be the minutia obsessor in this family, alas....but there are worse things!

Oh, that Cal, he's a wise boy.

(p.s.: Thank you for the camping shots. They warmed my heart, every last one.)

My husband and I are just the opposite. He would grab the kids, jump in the car, and just go, without even a destination picked. I want to know and plan for where, how long, do we need snacks, snow boots or bathing suits? Luckily I think we do rub off on eachother and vacations turn out well.
