First things first: I ran 9 awesome miles today. It was a crisp, clear, windless day on the prairie, and that is just pure heaven. I ran with some friends, on a super hilly route, and then finished alone with some AWOLNation, and it was glorious.
Got home, both kids still asleep, so I got to get them out of bed — with their snuggly jammies and bedhead and all warm from their blankies. Good lord, I love that.
The two of them are nuts right now (I just read somewhere the word “three-nager” and that so describes Jack right now — like a teenager in a preschooler’s body), but also very sweet. And Viv is talking all the time, and just cute about it. Today she went bonkers because she thought I had a strawberry Nutrigrain bar in my gym bag and was tearing through it to find it. Nut.
And Jack has been really funny. And bossy. (Wonder where he gets that from?)
I really can’t believe he’ll be 4 this year. That’s wild. I also can’t believe those ears. Good lord, kiddo. They just keep growing.
