I Just Don't Know What to Do with Myself

Last week, my son turned three. My husband turned . . . twenty-something (I'll never tell). My sister graduated from college. Some in-laws we haven't seen in several months came into town from Kansas. And I had my third Mother's Day. (Did I mention I spent my first Mother's Day giving birth?) And I had an existential crisis about what I want to do with my life, including whether I ought to be getting to making another baby right now, or trying to finally get back on the fast track with my currently mommy-tracked career. (Which is? What is that I wanted to be when I grew up again, exactly?)

I have meaningful things to write about all of these events. But, today, my frazzled brain has chosen to gift you instead with the lyrics of the song that Isaac spontaneously composed this evening while getting ready for his bath:

You wanna see something, little girl?
I'm gonna make a game.
You can't see me anywhere--
you can only see the rain.

Heavens. Am I raising the next Burt Bacharach?

would it be weird for me to say I hope so? I heart sappy love songs from the sixties and seventies more than is really proper.

also, I'm glad you're feeling better. better enough to stress out about what to do next. you're awesome, Jaelithe. :)

That boy needs an agent and FAST!

No worries, Jaelithe. The future is now. Live it. (now I sound like Burt Bacharach)

How cute. Let me know when he releases his first single. I will be one of the first to buy it.

Wow. He needs an agent, like RD said.

Wow. I am amazed and envious. Seth composed a song in the car tonight too. Only it was about poopy-butts, boobies, and cats. (GAH!)

Maybe we could implant some of Issac's brilliance into Seth's little caveman way of thinking?

Have been thinking about you and wondering how you're doing. :-)

Jaelithe, he's such a cutie-pie! How do you stand all that cuteness?

Seriously...that kid's good. Such depth and feeling from a three-year-old. Look out preschool girls! This one’s a true romantic!

I would totally buy a song with those lyrics!
