Life and constipation

Was there ever a time when you just sit back and think Is this really my life? I had one of those moments the other day.

My soon to be 16 year old son was sweeping the floor. He was wearing a t-shirt and boxers.(He had been watching tv wearing the snuggie) As he is sweeping he looks over to me and states that he is constipated.

Poor boy.

Wee Wigglers

I took abby to a Wee Wigglers program on Monday. This was our first time doing class like this. We were both a littel nervous. I felt like when I walked in everyone knew each other. I put on my smile and did not hesitate or waiver. Abby on the other hand waited for most of the class to go by before she would participate. The class that we attend was intended for children ages 2 months - 3 years old. The program is called Characters. When Abby did participate, she had a blast! The teacher was a very pleasant and even tempered lady. Her soft voice made the class quite welcoming. The dance, music, movements, and props all combined together to support early education enrichment and made it fun at the same time. All the children that were participating were clearly enjoying themselves. The children were free to move around and explore in a safe environment. Abby had a grand time and I had so much fun watching her learn and play. Abby had so much fun that she did not want to leave! This is a program that we will attend again and I will recommend it to parents of young children.

body parts

Yesterday morning when Abby woke up I bounded into her room. I was so excited to see her in the morning. After her initial excitidness, Abby proceeded to have a show and tell conversation with me. Here is how it went.

Abby: (as she pulls up her top and points) belly

Me: yes it is your belly.

Abby: (as she pulls up my top) belly

me: yes that is my belly

Abby: (as she pulls down her top and to the left) boobie

me: ah, yes that is your boobie

Abby: (as she pulls down her top and to the right) boobie

me: uummm, yes that is your boobie

Abby: (as she attempts to pull down my top) boobie

Me: (very taken aback) let's go for breakfast!

Ah Children!
