Sorry I’ve been MIA lately. A few weeks ago my computer broke so I wasn’t able to post anything. But that doesn’t mean lots of fun things haven’t happened in the meantime.
First of all, I will announce the winners of the Toronto Fall Home Show contest. 2 of my Twitter followers @JubleeW and @40somethngbride each won 2 tickets to go visit the Toronto Fall Home Show this passed weekend. I hope they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
My children are growing up so fast it is scary. The Princess is now in Senior Kindergarten and we’ve already been to birthday parties galore and they were switched into a bigger classroom due to an addition of 14 new students. There was originally 3 JK/SK classes but they got amalgamated into 2, going from 15 kids in one class to a whopping 29. The parent reps threw a “Healthy Breakfast Party” where all the parents and children got to come to school early and have breakfast together and see the new classroom. She is loving school, and making new friends. This morning however she had a bit of a breakdown. I had just finished dropping her off, and was turning around to go for my morning walk with the Rainbow when I heard my little girl screeching and crying.
“Moommmmmyyyy,” she wailed, tears running down her face. “I want to stay home with you.”
“Oh Honey, I know you do but you have to go to school and learn.”
“But I want to come home with you! I love you so much.”
“I love you too Boo Boo.”
I walked her back to the door and her teacher complimented her outfit and that was all it took for her for her to go in the school. Typical girl.
Our Rainbow is doing really well too. He is now 3 months and weighing in at 17.1 lbs. He had his first laugh a few weeks ago and has recently discovered his toes and ears. He is also moving around. I’ll put him down for a nap in one position and he has somehow turned himself into a completely different one. This morning while he was playing on his play mat, I walked into the other room to get the Princess dressed for school and when I came back, he had twisted himself up into some acrobatic move with his legs in the air. I feel like it won’t be too much longer before he is crawling if not running around my house keeping me on my toes.
Lastly, we attended a friend’s wedding in Quebec and both kids had a great time getting dressed up, riding a train and staying in a hotel. Hubby and I however determined that for the next wedding, maybe it would be best to leave the kids with a sitter. I never thought how difficult it would be to get 4 people dressed and convince the two youngest to stay clean.
