At least every other day Zeb asks: "Mom, is summer over yet? When can summer be over?" This kiddo is definitely related to me! Luckily August has been really nice-but still hot enough to play in the water and go to SONIC! There are two dangerously located Sonics here. One less than a mile from our place (and across the street from the splash pad) and the other right next to the gym. I don't even stand a chance.
The boys always want to get out and sit at the tables. We went for family home evening one week and saw a girl on her skates crash HARD with a big tray full of food. Zeb just kept asking why she was wearing the skates in the first place!
not be the mom of a kiddo with a gaming device- I LOVE THE DS (we got it at a yard sale WITH games for fifteen bucks!!). Such great leverage!! he gets his 'play minutes' after his reading and writing time- plus it works as a great threatening tool!! I can threaten to take his minutes away and get him to do just about anything in record time :) Such a great parenting tool, right?!
Thanks Gramps and Nannie Annie!!!
I'm adjusting to kent's schedule finally. We had it really easy for awhile there and now things are picking up! Luckily he goes back to easy hours next week again. This whole residency thing has been just about what I expected so far. Kent loves what he is doing and a majority of his rotations this year are clinic hours so he gets to be home pretty frequently. I'm pretty sure he's felt more stressed than I have the past few months, though :) I'm certain that being a first time real doctor is more intimidating than just about anything you could imagine!! but he's amazing with rugrats and hasn't even almost killed anyone yet!!
