Timmy lovessss basketball! & he’s really very good. He practices all the time thanks to memes & Tom buying him his own hoop. He’ll get up to 9 shots in a row.
Today he got medal for most enthusiastic. That’s for sure! Every week one player gets a medal for exceptional demonstration of a sportsmanship quality. He was so proud and I know it because he says as we are walking out, “Mom I’m just so proud of myself can you believe I got this medal?” He’s so awesome.
I got video of one of his shots too.
& poof! 9 months has passed.
This little butterball is weighing in at 20 pounds. She is suddenly a lover of all food. Like you can’t eat in front of her and expect not to share.
She is all over the place. Crawling, standing & cruising the couches.
She’s just the happiest little thing. Six teeth and I would not have know by all the happy days we have.
I’ve been spoiling her lately & letting her nap in my arms. But I already know those snuggles don’t last forever so the house will have to wait until she is grown.
Our very first chapter book complete! This is very exciting for me. I love to read and I’m really look forward to re-reading all the classics with my children.
I tried this last year with Charlottes Web but they weren’t ready yet. This time around it was so fun. Every night we snuggled up in my bed and read as a family. I also bought the book of kids questions and we filled that out each night too.
And coincidently that night we read our last chapter, the movie was playing on TV the very next day. We ate shrimp for dinner just like the Penguins. Our shrimp was fried tho 🙈. And the kids ate their ice cream and we all watched the movie. It. Was. Terrible. They liked it but I could not keep interested. The Penguins didn’t even have the same names. Like what?!
Anyways these lucky kids got to then go to Sea World a few days later to see real Penguins. Its a miracle this all worked out & the weather was perfect.The penguin exhibit is the cutest. And Daddy bought them little penguin babies from the gift shop. For the rest of the trip I had to keep these “Penguins” cold by holding them with our frozen water bottles. The pretend play is serious over here.
I woke up to this this morning.
It’s so awesome to see them playing out parts of the book. I’m excited for our next adventure!
Today there was a dead bird in the road. Timmy got so angry and says you know what I bet I know who did this and don’t worry mom I will be having a word with them.
Timmy doesn’t like our frig because the ice maker is too noisy. Says it’s gonna wake up Grace. He just told me to try calling 772-frig-makers and get it fixed.
So I turned my backyard into a water park on a budget… these kids were singing my praises. I actually got this, “Mom thanks for buying this pool we really appreciate it!” Just 12 bucks for all this magical fun!
Added some shampoo and pool turned bath just like that.
Day 2. More dirt. Pool falling apart. Kids could care less.
Dube Waterpark 2.0 is Swings + Sprinkler! Apparently the tiny friends are baaacccckkkk. Grace says her tiny friends are on her head taking a tour and her hair is their buckle and Timmy’s tiny friends are trying to turn the water off but they’re too small 😳
