I know, I know, no P and E info for a long time. But as with everything I do, I go gangbusters and then burn out for awhile. (Have you seen the dusty treadmill, but in my defense that was Steve's idea)
Preschool has made Parker a different boy. He talks all the time, he's coloring, trying to write, ok now I wish he was quiet like he used to be! His bday is on Wednesday and he is obsessed with the calendar and marking down the days. We also have written all of the other doings this month on there. We have a number of Halloween parties and of course a bday party this month. Tuesday Parker is going to a pumpkin patch for a field trip and I volunteered to chaperone. I am the only parent of the 14 kids to volunteer (how sad is that), so I am making Steve be the second parent if no one else volunteers, otherwise they can't go. His Halloween party (excuse me it's actually a fall party since they can't wear costumes because Halloween is evil) is on the 28th and I'm the lead parent in charge of that. This week I have started going to work at 8:15, so I can drop him off at class and not have to pay for morning day care. Plus I can get more updates on Parker from Miss J. This was his first week of 5 smilies, he was very proud of himself. He's also still obsessed with the Monsters Inc game and wakes up bright and early to play for a few minutes before he leaves in the morning. He always comes in to ask if he can get up and play computers and most days it's around 5:30-6 so it's ok. Some days he's a bit off though. Last weekend when Steve was gone he came in around 4 and I said it's not time go back to bed. Then 5 minutes later, he'd check again and again... Finally he fell asleep. Little does he know he could go right downstairs and play and we wouldn't know. We put out an alarm clock for him and told him he can't get up till the first # is a 6. The first morning, it was 5:36, he said it didn't have to be the first number. We explained that it had to be the first one and this morning he walked in at precisely 6:00 and explained it's six zero zero, I can get up!
Emma is still the same, loud! She is potty trained, although every once in awhile when she's outside I swear she just wets her pants on purpose. No poop in the undies anymore either. Although last weekend I kept catching her outside pooping... I guess just like Bosco does. She was very upset the other day when I took P to preschool when I had the day off and she couldn't stay. She said, "But Mom, I am a big girl now." I have promised her that she can go next year, so looks like she'll be going to Kindergarten early when she's almost 5. I just can't imagine 3 years until Kindergarten otherwise. A lady at the store thought she was almost 5 the other day. She is having fun at Sunday School. She knows most of the songs already and if the mood strikes her she really belts them out. P is having fun too, even coloring and doing the crafts. I volunteered to play for the kids Christmas program (once again no other parents volunteered), so I'll add that to my to do list.
Tomorrow is our last soccer already. Steve was in KC last weekend, so after soccer P, E and I raced to the zoo for Saturday Safari and they learned about bats. They really thought it was cool. P did the craft (wow again) and E had a blast using the glitter glue. Of course after class E wanted to stay at the zoo forever and P wants to go home.
Great news this week, Steph and family are moving to Des Moines. The cousins will be able to play together more and all 3 sis's can swap babysitting services. Not sure when and where their moving to exactly yet, but that's in the works.
They did tons of cute stuff, but of course since I didn't write it down, can't remember it, sorry!
