    Tape your heart

    March 16th, 2014

    Prepare to “Awwww!”

    [while driving home from soccer today]
    S2: Mommy, I need tape for your heart
    Me: What? Which heart?
    S2: Your heart — when G breaks is when he’s being mean
    Me: Aw, buddy!
    S2: Yeah, and then I won’t laugh!

    It’s the little things 🙂

    Movie Monday

    March 11th, 2014

    A very special movie event today: G reads. And I mean REALLY reads. He can recite from memory pretty well, but watching him read out words and random and sound things out gives me hope, and a great deal of pride.

    Best part is he’s excited. He’s talking about waking up early to read, and going to bed early to practice some more. I lost him at “waking up early”. So not him!

    But, please, DO watch this. It’s a little long, but if you’re into G milestones, this will hopefully make you proud too 🙂


    The most expensive Legos

    March 3rd, 2014

    We’ve successfully bribed both of our children with a big reward upon successful completion of potty training. Successful completion = 5 days accident free. G got a big, yellow Bruder crane. S2? He got legos. He asked for Buzz Lightyear and Woody Legos. Luckily for me these things exist. UNluckily for me, at $12 each, they are the most expensive Lego “men” he’s received. These suckers better not get lost ;p Although I will say that even combines, he’s still a cheaper date than G’s crane.

    8 schools

    March 3rd, 2014

    Yesterday, G told us that he’s ALREADY gone to 7 separate schools since he was born:

    1. my belly: this is where he learned to drink and eat
    2. the place he was before the “toddler room”
    3. the toddler room
    4. Ms. Shabriese’s room
    5. Dardar’s room
    6. Ms. Humdun’s class
    7. Ms. Collins’ class

    Just you wait, kid. Just you wait.

    Side note: I appreciated hearing that my uterus was an educational experience.
