Slow down

I really need December to slow down. How is it already the 4th? Time is going way to fast this month and my to do list seems to be constantly growing. I thought I had a good handle on gifties this year, but I seem to be falling behind. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. I think this week just got a little crazy, plus an icky stomach and lack of sleep doesn't really help. I'm looking forward to this crop at scrapgal, scrapping Saturday night, getting the Christmas tree and decorating the house Sunday....I think I'll feel better once some of my to do's are accomplished and the house is all pretty and Christmasy.

This conversation I had with one of my kiddos today, makes me smile:

M-What's your husband's name again?
M-So you have a husband but no children?
(I'm talking to a 7 year old, mind you)
Me-Yes. Someday I will have children. Maybe next year...
M-I think maybe tomorrow.
Me-That might be hard to do. How many children should I have?
Me-4! I don't know about that. Should I have boys or girls?
M-Both. 2 boys and 2 girls.
Me-Ok, what should their names be?
M-Well, the first one should be M (his name) and the second one will be Erin, and than one named Shawn, and the last one should be named (big silly smile) Piano.
Me-Piano? That's kind of a silly name, don't you think?
M-Yeah. I want one to have a silly name.

I definitely want December to slow down too!! What a cute conversation! My kids came up with all sorts of silly names for the baby :) If I would have listened to my oldest, I would have had a Darth Vadar and Leia instead of a Logan and an Ashley!
