It’s amazing how quickly things can change. I was in Toronto this past weekend visiting some friends from college, and in the three days that I was gone Justin picked up dozens of new words and started speaking in two- and three-word phrases. Also, both kids came down with a nasty cold, so it was a good time to be out of town. Brayden is proving to have quite a different temperament than his brother — as in a lot more attitude and a lot less patience — so life around here could get pretty challenging. Many thanks to Grandma and Grandpa Kingwell for being here to help Chris with the child care!
Another big change: the day before I left, Chris lost his job. We knew it was coming, but it still left a bad taste in the mouth. He’s busy with his consulting company and we certainly aren’t suffering, but it’ll be interesting to see what the future will hold.
