Everyone on their first day at their new school and job.
I would have a last day of school picture, but it is rainy and today was field day(also Ollie got a temporary tattoo on his forehead at field day). I wish I could say that I have big plans for summer; but mostly we will hopefully be reading a lot and going to the library, having playdates with friends, maybe some swimming and going to my hometown to see family we didn’t get to see much the last few years.
What are your summer plans?
Five of Eight of his Grands
I wonder what we would have to do to get all 8 eight of his grands all in one picture and the two greats?
What a nice surprise my Father in Law came to town and surprised us, he called L when he was on his way so it was a true surprise. Along with him being beardless for the first time in C’s lifetime.
Three of Five
It was a nice long weekend to have him in town. If you haven’t caught on two of C’s five siblings live here in the same town as us. I don’t know how we got Fort Carson, but boy were we happy. We spent lots of time together enjoying everyones company.
Singing Five Little Monkeys with Aunt B
Ian can’t stop talking about Aunt B and Uncle B’s house. They had a basement full of toys, that included dinosaurs. Hopefully we will see Papapaw again soon.
Hopefully we will see Papapaw again soon. I know we won’t be going home for the holidays, so maybe soon after that.
We went out on an adventure tonight booing our neighbors and friends. We made a change to the pinterest idea and handed them their boo bags. I don’t want to teach Ian to ring the doorbell and run. He had so much fun doing it, hopefully next year we can include Ollie.
I hope to make this a tradition for years to come. It made Ian happy and showed him it is fun do things for others.
The day before we left for Missouri to see C graduate basic we went to my Daddy’s house. We spent the afternoon playing outside, hoping to run off enough energy to be calm the next day in the car. Of course no trip home isn’t complete without a visit with Uncle GusGus.
There is going to be a lot of post over the next few days. Catching up for the last month, I had to gather myself after seeing C. It was tougher then I thought to see him and not get to keep him.
Today is one of those days I want to bottle up and open up on a day where nothing is going right.
Ian has been nothing but enjoyable. C says that when they went on errands, he was so good. Maybe it was the magic of putting up the Christmas tree, Ian has been asking for over a week. Maybe it was cause C was home but everything has gone smoothly. Lets hope we have more day like it.
I am not gonna lie, I don’t mind two in diapers. I would let Ian wait till he was ready. The reason we are going to push it is he is reaching the age where people have started making judgmental comments about him being in diapers.
So this year we are going no where for Thanksgiving and Ian has no school the while week. So as of yesterday and a long conversation with Abby, it was decided that I am going to stop avoiding it and bring on the potty training. You my wonder why I am blogging about so far in advance. Well I am gonna need advice, mama support and a bit of push.
So wish us luck, here we go.
As you can see the days here haven’t been too exciting. Ian gets his cast off this coming Monday. Ollie’s first birthday party is saturday so hopeful soon my words will return.
I don’t remember it being so hard with Ian. Ollie on the other hand isn’t really interested, we have tried everything water, milk, juice (yes we did, judge away 2 oz is not going to kill him).
Now he can and will fake it. He might even take a drink or two. Then he just hauls it around like it a favorite old toy.
We have tried both soft spout and hard. No we haven’t tried the straw kind mainly because I hate cleaning them.
So mama’s any tips to help me get him to drink from a sippy cup?
