What better way to wake up from a nap than to wake up to the garbage truck?!?!
Colin LOVES "ducks" (trucks) and just watches with an open mouth as they drive by. I caught Garet with him watching the garbage get picked up on Tuesday =)
Then I turned around and caught my sweet girl enjoying the peaceful house while the boys were outside:
We filled most of our mid-mornings playing in the water before lunchtime. As you can see I didn't fill it up very much - I honestly didn't feel like having a soaked boy - but he had just as much fun with it!
I love this sweet boy so much!
When I was in the kitchen one day I heard Colin in the living room saying, "Hello"... "blah blah blah blah" (your guess is as good as mine as to what he said)... "buh bye". And when I walked in he had his [pretend] cell phone to his ear! He was just chatting away! It was adorable!
Then another day when I was in the kitchen (are you seeing a trend here?), I heard the t.v. turn on... I walked into the living room and here was Colin:
I am realizing more and more that I am very OCD about things... like Colin will dump out his whole box of toys and as soon as he has lost interest and run away I will pick them all back up and put them away. Then 5 minutes later he will dump them out again. I will put them away. Over. and. Over. I can't help it. He has these blocks that came in a flat container that is outlined where the blocks go... I HAVE to put the blocks back in the correct outlined place. If one is missing I will search high and low until I find it. Just ask Garet. I have issues.
So... with crafts I have a hard time just letting Colin have markers/crayons/paint (oh man the paint...) because I don't want it all over everything. I have a rule that when he is drawing he has to sit at his desk. If he gets up to run around he has to leave the markers/crayons/pens whatever with me. Is that crazy? I really can't help it - hope I'm not stunting his imagination! =)
This Crayola "marker" that I found is perfect because it ONLY marks on this special paper. So it eases my mind a bit when he is drawing
I changed him. Not because I didn't like the outfit, but because it was too big for him.
And snapped a picture of my sweet babies
Tonight, we went out to dinner... got home... I bathed Colin and put him to bed... Garet mowed the grass... and now it is only 8:00 and we can CHILL on the couch =) Perfect Friday night!
