Crazy kind of day. The boys and I went shopping most of the morning. I had told them if they did not fight at all the entire time they could pick something out at the very end. I have NEVER tried this before. All I can say is why in the world did I wait so long to try this tactic????? It has given me a few ideas of how to possibly deal with Cameron and his continued torture of his brother.
They were pretty cute this morning though and named each of the stores we went to after their favorite "Cars" characters. So we went to Sally, Doc Hudson and Maters. Translation...Lowe's Joann's and Target. And of course we road in Lightening McQueen. Aka, Mommy's car. You gotta love having boys!
What a nice day. The boys and I got to play all morning and then I was able to go to dinner with a friend. Much needed. I will say it is so nice to say I am actually making friends here!
Noah and I played for like 30-45 minutes tonight just rolling around on the floor and me tickling him. It was so much fun and his laugh just makes my heart swell. I laid on the floor and he would roll over to me and have me tickle him. He would giggle and then roll away. Coming right back for more. When I tried to sit up and tickle him I was quickly informed I needed to lay back down. I guess he enjoyed me being on his level instead of towering over him. Sometimes I think we need to realize that more often with our children. They see the world so differently than we do.
Man, Cameron was a handful today. This always seems to happen the day after Mike is off for any amount of time or when we have company in. Praying it only lasts one day because he was just mean to Noah all day. I am really glad they will be going to separate schools in January now. He really needs some space and some things that are just his own. Really think this will be a very good thing.
It snowed today! A lot! We got over 4 inches of snow!!!!!! And yes, we did go out and play. I was shocked the boys stayed out almost an hour and still weren't ready to come in. I bribed them with cookies and milk for a snack. Their little noses were starting to run. So basically we played inside most of the day and enjoyed watching the snow.
My boys are three years old today. I just can't believe it. They amaze me and I want to capture every minute I can on film or in my memory somehow. I know it isn't possible but I love them so very much and I want them to know how much they were loved. They are these amazing little guys and I want to soak in everything possible during this wonderful time in their lives.
Oh wow. The boys had a ball today opening presents and playing. All morning they played with all their toys virtually with no one else around. They kept going from one thing to another. It was pretty stinking cute. I wish I would have taken more photos but I was just enjoying watching them.
