We interrupt our regularly scheduled blog for a confession...


Thing 2 and Thing 1 Posted by Hello

let me introduce you to Thing 1 and Thing 2. They are 2/3 of my testosterone trio. This is something that you'd commonly find Thing 1 doing...

And this is what Thing 2 likes to do...

They are as different as night and day not only in the way they look but in everything they do. Thing 1 is the "taskmaster", Thing 2 is easy going, very transcendental; Thing 1 is conservative, Thing 2 is a self proclaimed "hippie'; Thing 1 loves the outdoors and all sports, Thing 2 is a computer geek and loves to painting and arts and crafts; Thing 1's favorite color is pink (the new black, by the way), Thing 2 loves the color "rainbow". They are my greatest joy and at times, greatest heart ache. I can't imagine my world without them in it. I tell you this because I must confess in my 'new to the blogging world" stupidity, I've been referring to them as my DSS' thinking that it meant "Dear Sweet Sons". Well I found out at KR yesterday that it means Dear STEP Son. Oh the horror! So maybe its not the end of the world for most people but I have mondo stretch marks to prove that BOTH of these boys are borne of me and yes, DH is father to both. The challenge of being a bi-racial family with boys who are truly different colors but from the same parents, is answering the question "are they from another marriage? or are they adopted?" I just want to set the record straight - they are mine and ours and I'm proud of them. Have I said enough to absolve myself of the guilt? Just slap a giant "L" on my forehead...

I now return you, my wonderful readers, to our regularly scheduled knitting blog...

I think they are beautiful. They reflect the beauty of their parents.

Happy Thanksgiving.
