almost as good as a fresh mater from the garden

While I have complained a lot here about not having a job this summer and spending a lot of time working on resumes and job searching, I would just like to say for the record that I have really, truly enjoyed this summer so far. Julianna has gotten to the point that I am not nervous about her playing independently in another room for a half hour or so without me. I am able to check on her every once in a while and she is usaully fine, entertaining herself. Plus, it has been great to have two extra adults here most of the time to keep an eye on her as well.

Sure, occasionally things happen when I am not supervising her fully, but for the most part she has grown up to be an independant child that gives me a freedom to work on other things for longer periods of time. This is not a freedom I will have for much longer and I am enjoying it while I can.

I'm so glad you have had this time with her over the summer. She will forever remember it.

Glad to see you're enjoying your summer.

Its funny you talk about being able to leave her alone in another room w/o worrying what she's up to. I have a friend who has a 2.5 year old son who cannot leave him alone b/c he gets into so much trouble. She was visiting family recently when they all realized it was too quiet in the house. She went upstairs to look for him and he was in the bathroom giving himself swirlys. He would flush the toilet and stick his head in there and come up drenched, laughing the entire time.
