A lot has been going on with the Hill clan since August began, but not much to blog about. Both of my boys have started school and I feel like I hardly see them during the week, therefore not much to write about! I do have to say that August has been a rather difficult month for me personally...well, as a mother. TJ is 4 1/2 and has always been a Momma's boy. He has his occasional Daddy Days where he follows Thomas around wanting to fight and play all day. But recently, I feel like I have a mutinous child...he is ALL about his Daddy right now! This is how our afternoons have been progressing since school began...As soon as we get home...which is not until about 6:30...I start dinner, cleaning up the kitchen and preparing for the next day. Thomas usually gets home from practice around 7:00, just in time to sit down at the table for dinner. Once dinner is over, we clean the table and get the kitchen cleaned up, yet again. Then TJ follows Thomas and they end up playing...aka fighting of some sort! To which TJ says, "Mommy, we're playing too rough, you can't play. Go into the living room." Then, Thomas feels bad that I am left out and knows that I just want to spend time with my "little" boy, so he tells TJ that it is time to calm down and head into the living room with Mommy. Of course, TJ huffs and puffs in annoyance that he has to stop playing and go sit down with boring 'ole me! He used to sit in my lap every night while calming down and getting ready for bed, well last night that little traitor sat in his Daddy's lap! I do all of the no-fun-at-all, getting ready for school, making lunches, cooking dinner, washing the laudry and what do I get...NOTHING! Are all Mommies no fun?


  1. Bless your heart! Jack quit hugging and kissing me as much recently and when I told my Mom she said, "He'll think you're cool again just before he graduates highschool." I cried. She said both my brothers went through a phase where they thought my dad hung the moon and she was just there to do the girl stuff that needed doing. Basically, what Bert thinks of his wife now! :-) But, when I told my brothers she said that, they both said, "No way! I always loved Mom the best!" Sometimes I have to pull Jack into my lap and make him scream just to get a kiss out of him. Stinker pot. I feel your pain!

  2. Holly, that makes me feel so much better knowing you are going through the same thing with Jack! Thanks :)

  3. It hurts me to my core when Coop goes through his "only Dad" stages! Don't they know we love them best?!
