I’ve gotten a few emails lately about two different topics. I thought I’d address them for everyone to read!
Yes, MrZ is growing his hair out. I think it started as a “punishment” type of thing to himself for not running the marathon this year he had intended to run. He is saying he won’t cut it now until he runs the marathon in December. I think he thought it would be motivation but it’s turning out that he likes the hair and I’m not sure if he’ll want to cut it after the marathon. I’ve been shocked that it has so much body to it. I would have predicted it would be straight and stringy. But it’s not! It’s kinda wavy and almost thick. ALMOST. I really like it and he’s having a ball with it. He was running his fingers through it last night and said, “How do you live with so much hair?” Heh.
I’ve also been asked about my decision to put AndyZ in a room with NikkiZ. A few suggested he room with LilZ instead since they’re both boys. To which LilZ said, “Uh…seriously?” It was not ever even an option. LilZ needs a reprieve from his siblings. If AndyZ is anything like NikkiZ, he will want to spend every waking moment with his big brother. LilZ needs a room to hide in when he needs some quiet time.
Also – I shared a room with my brother off an on when we were little. I don’t think it’s a big deal. I think having your own room is a luxury past generations did not know, so I’m not stressing out about it. The room is big and NikkiZ is excited to have a roommate. If you’ll remember, NikkiZ slept with us until she was 10 months old, so I’m not even worrying about if the baby will wake her up because he’ll sleep with us for awhile. Also – she sleeps like a damn LOG. She has slept through tornado siren, vacuuming, and the dogs scratching at her door. I think she’ll be fine.
Any other questions that need addressing? Anything else to keep me from talking about the fact that I got no sleep again last night and MrZ found me balled up on the couch this morning crying from exhaustion? Because that topic is getting old and I need new material.
