It's hard to believe my baby boy is 3 years old! He had a nice birthday I think. Preschool in the morning where he was very excited to take snack- echo farms pudding yum! Then we went out to lunch with Nan and Melissa, his godmother. Then we had a nice family evening at home with presents and cake. Most fun of all was his birthday present from Nanny- a battery powered John Deere Gator! He and Xander have been riding it non stop since Tuesday! Happy Birthday baby boy!
Labor Day weekend we had our last trip to the Drive-in for the summer! It was a dusk till dawn marathon event that of course we had to stay for the all 4 movies! Got to get our money's worth you know! Anyway we had a good time and finally got the kids to crash in the back of the van so we could actually sit and enjoy the movies. The new van has a great sound system from inside the car but we'll have to bring a radio next time b/c it wasn't really loud enough to hear from outside. James was totally obsessed with the sunroof and we had to continually pull him off the roof- literally! All in all it was f un a night despite some seriously groggy parents the next day!
James had his first day of preschool last Tuesday. He was very excited to wear his big boy backpack and go to school like Xander. He was slightly less excited when he realized that Xander and I were going to leave him at school by himself but he persevered. All in all he had a good day, well half day at least since his preschool is Tuesday through Thursday 8:45-11:45am. It's hard to believe that at 2 my little man is old enough to be going to preschool but he will be 3 soon! The first day they worked on cutting paper into little tiny pieces- I got the evidence of it home in his backpack! He even went pee on the potty while he was at school. We had a few tears when I dropped him off the rest of the week but I anticipate soon enough he'll be like "see ya!" Xander was thrilled to be going back to school and in fact threw a massive tantrum when I picked him up the first day because he didn't want to be picked up!
I'm a full time night shift working mom who loves both her job and her kids (and my hubby, of course!). I'm learning to balance motherhood, my love of crafting, running a farm with the hubby, and working as an L&D nurse. Come join the fun....
