Life continues on at a steady pace here in San Marcos! I have been helping out at Jon's school a bit more this semester, although my sweet husband yesterday said that maybe I should learn to say 'no' more. Was that because I was crying on a Friday afternoon because my son was refusing to take a nap for the 6th consecutive day, and I had not been able to get my monumental list of weekly to-do's done? Probably. Oh well, I constantly struggle with trying to get everything done and live up to the expectations I put on myself as a stay at home mother. Seriously, I don't know how families with bunches of kids and/or two full-time working parents manage it - I am in awe!
Here are a few moments from our home over the past couple of weeks:
|Jon likes to wear his drum as a helmet, and he thinks he's pretty cool. One day he said that now that he has a helmet, he can ride a bike like a big boy! We'll see : ) I have thought about investing in a balance bike, as it seems to ease the transition into big kid bike. Anyone had experience with them?|
|Our first LEGO gun. *sigh*|
|Reading with Daddy - one of the few moments in the day when he is still (though he is playing with LEGO blocks while he listens to the story)!|
