Since Thing 2 (my youngest - will be 4 in August) has been learning to use his words and behave himself, family time together is slowly becoming time of joy and excitement, rather than me feeling like all I do is yell and say "NO".
I'm so blessed. Seriously. I know I'm not going to get this time back with them. All the more reason I am SO glad there is NO school this summer!
We started putting themes together for each day. Monday is usually park night, but Thing 1 decided he wanted to go for a hike. So, it was dinner on the front grass, picnic style, and then off on our adventure!
|Thing 2, Leading the way. I know he is going to be a leader all his life. He's so independent already!|
|His joy in taking our nature walk was infectious and indescribable.|
|Hubby making this time a teaching time. Telling the boys all about the different birds, animals, etc. He would live in the woods if he could! The boys were fascinated!|
|Especially this one!|
|My Thing 1. Already 7. How much longer will he want to snuggle me and give me hugs and kisses? Probably not much longer. You bet your ass I am going to take advantage!|
I have a final on Thursday and one NEXT Thursday. So close to the end - I'm hanging on by a thread!
Getting my workouts in, eating well, but I have been sucking at logging everything and at drinking my water. Working on the water as we speak.
Keep moving forward...
