What's a Happenin'?

I haven't had all that much to blog about lately; I guess things have been pretty boring with day-to-day life, with work, gym, family time, eat & sleep. And repeat, and repeat, and repeat!

Cam's doing really well in the toddler room at school where he's been consistently spending his days over the past month or so. He's getting a taste of more structured learning; sitting in a circle for story time, making crafts at the art table, eating lunch in a regular seat & going to the sink after meals to wash his hands. It's funny to pick him up & see him listening & following direction so well. Wish he did a bit more of that at home!

Parenting is continuing to throw us new curve balls every time we turn around. Why don't these kids come out with instruction manuals so I know exactly how to handle each issue I'm faced with? From time to time, Cam has a bit of a temper when he's tired & doesn't get what he wants. And he deserves an Academy Award for his newly found fake cry (which is rather amusing to watch!)

And what else is new? Oh, Cam is obsessed with the movie Cars; we put on each night as he's getting ready for bed. Since seeing so much of it, I've seriously started to look at real cars on the real road & picture what they would look like if animated. Pretty sad indeed! (And as I type this, what else is playing on the TV but Cars?)

Also, we're looking forward to Grammy's upcoming visit as she'll be flying in on Saturday morning in anticipation for our beach weekend getaway the following weekend. Grammy is nice enough to watch Cam for an entire weekend while we spend time with our wonderful friends at the beach. It'll be so great to have some uninterrupted adult relaxation time, but I know I'll miss my little love so much.

I'll leave you with some pictures of our time at the park this past Saturday with Leah, Matt & Kelly.

We hadn't seen one of these spinning contraptions in such a long time! My brother used to push me so hard on them when I was a kid that I was sure I was going to fly off to my death.

I love our faces in this picture as we came down the slide!

Hope everyone is having a great week so far!!

  1. I love yours and Cam's faces when coming down the slide as well. It cracked me up. That was an awesome park and we'll definitely have to go back. I can't wait until our beach weekend. I hope you have a great rest of the week as well!
