M&Ms! Also known as "Scotty's crack rocks." He LOVES M&Ms. He gets this glazed over look in his eyes whenever I pull out the coveted brown bag (four pounds of chocalate-y goodness. Thank you, Costco.) And instead of just handing over the good stuff, I'm making him work for it these days. If he is able to correctly tell me the color of the M&M, he gets to eat it.
And...I have to tell you, this child officially knows all of his colors now. It was the fastest learning curve I've ever seen.
"Boo! Boo! BOOOOOO!"
We're still working on pronunciation.
N is for...
The word I hear about 280 times a day. I'm not exaggerating...I think I might start a tally sheet, just to total up the number of times this child tells me no. I know he doesn't mean it, as he most often takes the item I am handing him, despite his protests, but my goodness, it is annoying.
"Scotty, do you want your juice?"
"Scotty, do you want to watch Elmo?"
"Scotty, do you love your mother?"
Very emphatic "NO!"
The best was when we were driving in the car last weekend. A radio announcement came on, and the voice asked, "Do you need a designated driver?" And from the backseat came the Bear: "No!"
That's good. He's way too young to be drinking. Or driving, for that matter.
M also stands for...
Maintaining your Mental health aMid this Craziness.
Whew. As you may have gleaned from the blog, I literally have no time to write anymore. This week alone was packed with two music classes, one pool date, a park date, two haircuts (mine and the Bear's), one Junior League meeting and another JL event. And it's only Friday afternoon! And it was only a four-day week! I. Am. Tired.
I have a feeling it will only get a little crazier. Not because of the Junior League stuff (I love my committee! Though we are more of a "department," in my humble opinion), but because of the enormous amount of just...stuff...coming up. So thanks for being patient with the reviews (I have 8 dining reviews to type up!) and most of all, thanks for reading.
I might go eat some M&Ms now. Mmm.
Happy Weekend! Hope you have something fun planned.
