Well, Santa knows how much our family loves books so he brought us a bunch (thanks Santa!) so Josh and I have done a fair amount of reading together in the living room when the little kids are resting.
We have two couches in the living room so we each claim one as our spot and we plop down to enjoy our stories. The thing is, once Josh settles in he doesn't seem to move until he gets up to go do something else. I, on the other hand, fidget and adjust and change positions every few minutes trying to stay comfortable. I cannot fathom sitting down and just staying put in that same position for an hour or two. That is completely weird (if you ask me).

thought I'd put it in here anyway.
Oh well, I still get the books read and the movies watched. Maybe all that extra movement counts as exercise and it will keep me thin (ha ha ha). Mostly it just makes me chuckle at myself (like lots of other things do). Keeping up with six children does require near constant movement so maybe this little gift was a blessing to help prepare me for the life I never knew I had coming. Life is good, even if I can't hold still.
