Switching the news to PBS Kids in the morning so the boys stop fighting. I don't watch the news I just listen to the stories while I get ready in the morning. The boys stood at the gate and quietly watched the TV in my room.
Playing Legoes with Dad all afternoon.
Gavin consciously trying to stop chewing on his clothes. He even prays about it. See, faith works!
Gwen belly laughing at a mom today while we were waiting to pick up our kids from school.
Going to the playground together. Gavin asked to go to the playground with the concrete slide because he wanted to take his bike. I had my doubts about packing up the bikes but Gavin did awesome. Parker didn't play with his but I expected that.
Obedient children. It took us 15 minutes to leave the playground. No surprise there. But I can't physically push Gwen in her stroller and take 2 bikes back to the van alone. I told the boys they needed to help me. Parker had no problem pushing his back back for me. Gavin was all upset and wanted me to put his shoes back on. I just said, "Have you forgotten how?" Then I told him I was walking away and I expected him to get his bike back to the van. He cried and told me he was having a bad day. I felt bad for him but walked away expecting to help him once I got the other two in the van and did the remote start so they were locked in a running vehicle with no keys. But Gavin rode his bike back while carrying a piece of cardboard (for the slide) bigger than he was. I was impressed. See, that proves some of my points from yesterday too.
Gavin saying all day he wants a remote control that skips Friday and goes straight to Saturday!
Taking a break from it all and going to a Stake Relief Society activity. It was a taste of Broadway with people from the Stake performing songs from Broadway musicals. It was so much fun.
Paying for the last tub of infant formula today! Hello $60 monthly savings!
Officially losing 5 pounds! Hello Gwen prepregnancy weight! 5-10 more and I will be the size I was when we put our house up for sale in Utah. 5-10 more after that and I will be the size I was pre Gavin and Parker pregnancies. Which is also the same size I had been since high school. I could live with that. Thank you fitness ball. You rock!
Writing a note to Gavin in his lunch bag saying "I love you. You rock!" He told me he saw it and Kyle told him it meant he had a rock on his head! Kids crack me up. I told him it meant I thought he was a great kid and he was one of my favorite people. Gavin told me I was one of his favorite people when I'm not mad. Ouch. Thanks for your honesty kid.
