I have started making the kids go to bed on their own now. Instead of me laying with them until they fall asleep (a bad habit I get into when M is gone) and Pretty Girl wasn't having it. So, she decided to fall asleep in her doorway. She did this two nights in a row, without saying a word to me.
|Notice how she made sure to bring Winnie the Pooh as well as two blankets???|
Saturday I had my first Jewelry Bar for Origami Owl. It was fun, but the turn out wasn't what I was expecting. I had set a minimum goal for myself and reached that, so I was pretty pleased with myself. Here is a picture of my table. From now on I'm going to use a bigger table and spread out more.
|I was pretty proud of my little set up|
Sunday morning was spent cleaning the house and getting ready for M to come home. I like cleaning extra for when he comes home. I know I would prefer to come home to a clean house after being away for awhile. More relaxing. After my mom got home from Church and lunch with my grandma I took the kids over to swim. They love swimming and I'm sad our swimming season is almost over. But I was so very proud of Booger, who took his mask and put his face in the water, while holding his breath all on his own!!!!! This is a huge step for him!!!!
Here is a short video of it.
Later that night, after getting yummy Chinese for dinner, my mom came over to watch the kids and I drove the hour and a half up to Tampa to meet M at the airport. It was nice picking him up by myself. It made for a late night and a tired me the next day, but so worth it! He is home now and seems to be in pretty good spirits. The kids have enjoyed having him home so far. :)
I am also happy to announce that Booger has decided he is going to wear big boy undies to bed instead of a pull up. This has made quite a bit of work/laundry for me, but we are pleased to say he woke up dry Monday morning!!!!!!!! Woo hoo!!!!
I hope you all had a great weekend as well!!!!
