As I mentioned last week, our life has been hectic lately. Well, this post is going to be just as hectic. Some random stories and highlights from our life lately:
Landon was out of school for Election Day so he went to the polls with Dean and I. We talked about the voting process. Then that night, we participated in a much more delicious vote that the kids actually cared about:
Which cupcake is the best?
Brooks loves to look over at the glassed-in parent section whenever he’s doing his lesson to make sure we’re watching him. I love watching him get more confident and capable in the water.
Somebody decided they needed a haircut, so they took it upon themselves to give one spot in their head a nice tight trim. He was supposed to be in his room for timeout. Oh, Brooks!
Brooks had to disguise his turkey so he wouldn’t get caught and eaten for Thanksgiving. He wanted to do a crocodile but we couldn’t figure out how to do that, so we went with a rainbow/leprechaun theme. Mostly because we wanted to use sparkle glitter and glue and that seemed to fit. The best part though, is when I saw them hanging in the hall and noticed the name Brooks gave to his turkey: “Turtle the Leprechaun” Seriously, I wonder what it’s like to be in his brain! 🙂
We were recently in the greeting card section of Target. I was checking out the funny cards and the kids were picking cards and asking me over and over to read them outloud. I did a few and then told them to just let mom do some quick reading of her own so we could get out of there. While I was reading the cards, Landon started reading a few on his own. And he can definitely read now…
He starts outloud, “Have a g-ood damun birth-day.” His eyes get wide as he looks over at me. “Mom, what does that word say”, pointing to ‘damn’. I confirmed that it was, in fact, damn. He replied, “well, mom, I’m not going to read any more of these cards. I don’t know if they have more bad words.”
That’s a lot of random miscellaneous-ness for one post 🙂 And obviously, we’re totally nailing this parenting thing
