Turning Japanese

February 3, 2004 | Leave a Comment

Well, Brian did make it home from Japan and discovered the snow storm to be much smaller than the over-excited weather men predicted. Orla was thrilled with her new kimono — which included a lot of purple — still her absolutely favorite color!  And Eoghan was delighted with his race cars. He loves cars! He has kept them in good shape and has taken much better care of them than his daddy did of his truck.


In a hurry to get out of our driveway he sideswiped his door on a tree. I had flash backs of when we were dating and he drove my mom for the first time — managing to take off a rental car’s side mirror on a construction cone which I pointed out he might be getting a little too close to (Brian of course dismissed my warnings with a cavalier sneer, before events justified my concern :-)


Despite his occasional grumpiness, we are all glad he has returned ! The kids love helping cook his breakfast and tea and fight over who gets to carry it up to his bed.  Orla is becoming so grown up and is now able to tell me when she is having a “busy”, “bad”, or “good” day. She is a regular little chatter box at night before bed time. It is only when I threaten to not let her eat any more cookies because the sugar keeps her awake that she agrees to go to sleep. She has her grandmother’s sweet tooth.


Eoghan hasn’t been sleeping on his normal schedule since our trip to Ireland. But he seems to be getting closer to letting his mom get her required sleep !
