Life is boring, life is good

Not much going on at the Schrooten house, but I wanted to bump my whiney post about being tired, so I thought I'd share a few pictures and a video clip with you. The video is of Jack watching "Jack's Song". He really enjoys watching it. Notice the big smile on Jack's face when he hears Eric's name. Also notice Eric in the background walking out of the room after he hears his name - that's all he is interested in!

I took the video with my camera turned and I can't figure out how to turn the video upright. If anyone knows how to fix it, please let me know. (sorry, it's a bit annoying to have to watch it sideways ... but, if you have a laptop, you can always turn your computer on its side :-) Btw, Jack's shirt says "Move, you are blocking my greatness"

Mary had another Irish Dance competiton today and she did well. Eric insisted I take his picture since I was taking Mary's. I'm not sure where he thinks he is hitching a ride to.

To answer Kristy's question .... I get Jack's shirts at Abercrombie (Kids) - they have great t-shirts, but I don't think they make toddler size clothes. He has another shirt from there that says "Entertain Me, I'm Bored".

Been a while since I visited the site and the kids look great. I do believe Jack loves his song. 6 months post op...(Huge Sigh!) What a relief to have that behind you. Is Jack healed up well? Any bed sores? I'm in the same tired bucket as you are...a pair of tired mommas. When we get the sunshine back, we should start feeling better.
Love ya woman!

I love the video of Jack and his song! He is so cute and such a great smiler! I love the shirt. Where did you find it? We might have to add it to Nathan's "Trach Dude" t-shirt collection! I think we all need to take a long vacation and do nothing but eat chocolate and SLEEP!

That is so sweet! I hope one day to get to meet the great Jack!

Hope you get a little bit of extra rest.

Ann -
It is great that Jack just smiles when he hears his brother's name in the song! Will just lights right up when his sister comes home from school. He used to do that for me, sigh... great photos of your daughter and the boys.
