Mitchell is such a goofball…loves to lay down on the snow… Does that every time we stop on the slopes

Another Weekend Gone!

It’s a brand new Monday, and the boys are excited to get back to school with their friends.  Ok, ok, Mitchell is not quite as excited to go to school as Mac, but he always has fun!  It was a good weekend.  The boys are still taking their swim classes and learning as best as they can…they only get into the pool once a week for 30 minutes, and they need to share the lesson with each other.  Mac had his piano lesson on Sunday as a make up for last Wednesday’s missed lesson.  Of course, he did well.  No surprise.  Mitchell did well yesterday with his drum practice.  We have not been doing as well with his practice.  Daddy needs to do a better job of getting Mitchell to do his practice.  It will probably take a more defined daily routine in the morning.  We’ll post the schedule for the boys, so they can help.   Most likely, we will get home from school or TKD and have Mitchell do drum practice while Daddy is preparing dinner.  Daddy made up a weekly menu for the boys’ lunch and dinner.  This will make it easier to stay on the tight evening schedule without making every night a crisis to figure out what’s for dinner.  Mac will have an assignment each day from Daddy…don’t worry, he’ll like it.  Today, he will look up ‘Pi’ on Google and answer two questions…1. What’s the symbol; 2. What’s the number to six decimal places.  He will also learn how to write email, by writing an email to his mother.  He will also do a short typing lesson.  He has been learning how to type a little, but this will help him become proficient.  No doubt he will do well. 

Mitchell has been complaining about a sore throat since Friday.  He had a little congestion yesterday and through the night.  He slept with Daddy last night, and coughed a little early.  He was sleeping soundly in the morning.  Nice drool puddle next to Tina’s pillow!  He really didn’t want to wake up.  It was a mild crankiness this morning.  He came out of it quickly!  

More to follow in the next couple of days!

Oh, What a week!

Let me start with the Dentist’s nightmare!  Yes, Halloween.  Last year Mitchell was only two and really didn’t understand what he was doing and Mac got sick and just passed out candy with Daddy.  This year, Halloween was bitter sweet.  It was Heathers last day taking care of the boys.  ON the bright side, she will be able to spend more time with Joey before her new kid pops out!  Good luck Heather…the boys miss you and wish you all the luck…stay in touch!

Mac and his pumpkinPumkin carving time!

For the boys that night, it was mommy on duty and the sun staying up later than past years.  To start, at 5pm, it was off to a neighborhood party sponsored by the residents of Commonwealth Street.  Mommy didn’t make it:-(  Just the three boys and many of our neighborhood friends.  After a healthy amount of pizza (for daddy), brownies, juice, and lots of playing, it was time to move out for some candy snatching!  The neighborhood is great…lots of older folks happy to see the transition of the old neighborhood into a thriving family community.   Mac and Mitchell had to be continuously restrained to keep them in Daddy’s site.  They chose to stay with a small group of the neighborhood kids.  Mac filled his bucket so full, it began to come apart.  This year, the boys were maniacs and had a blast.  Mommy stayed home to hand out candy and work!  Arrrghh, where\'s the fire?

Saturday morning was the last day of the current session of swim lessons.  Both boys are doing really well.  Mac has started swimming on his own without floats for several strokes with his head underwater.  He’s really proud.  And so are Mommy and Daddy.  For the rest of the weekend it was either Birthday parties (3) or Mac and Mommy at the Botanical Gardens collecting leaves from the different trees.  One of Mac’s projects…to collect leaves and put them in an album.  Mac and Mitchell went to the first party Saturday together at the Zoo for Riley who turned 4.  The second party was for Mitchell’s classmate, Allison.  It was held at a bowling alley.  Mitchell had a great time.  Too bad Mac didn’t join us.  He would have had a blast.  Mitchell and Daddy went to Mitchell’s favorite place in the world after the party…you guessed it…Toys R Us.  In fact, every night, Mitchell sits on the potty and looks at the different toy catalogs telling us he will get this or that for Christmas.

Sunday, it was off to Johnny’s party at Chuck E Cheese.  Mac was less than thrilled going there.  He does not really like the Macot, so it took a while for him to enjoy himself.  He did, however, especially with the air hockey game.  That was a full weekend.  No golf lesson due to too much partying.

Monday, November 3, 2008.  A new era!  They boys are nanniless!  It’s now time to begin full time school beginning with Daddy taking them to school at 0800 and Mommy picking them up before 530pm.  Mac is so excited and doesn’t want to be picked up before 530pm.  Mitchell, on the other hand, is taking it in stride and doesn’t want to stay in school till the end of the day…’come get me early, Mommy!  Fade out, Monday.

Fade in, Thursday.  Alls well with the boys.  They are a little out of whack, but only due to being a little more tired at the end of the day.

Time to wrap this up…Daddy needs some sleep.

October 28, 2008

06:50- Mac woke up and went into daddy’s room, he got to see mommy before she left for work.  Mac stayed in daddy’s room until it was time to wake up Mitchell. 07:30 we all woke Mitchell and daddy carried him downstairs.  Mitch went potty and put on his under wear and walked daddy to the door.  Mac got himself dressed and also walked daddy to the door.  Mitchell finished getting dressed and Mac picked out his breakfast.  Then when Mitch finished getting dressed he got his breakfast to.  Mac ate blueberry muffins and drank milk, Mitch ate chocolate chip muffins and drank milk.  After eating the boys had time to play.  Mac played on the computer and Mitch played with Thomas trains and watched Mac on the computer.

08:15- The boys got ready for school.  I put Hydrophor and band aids on Mitchell’s bottom right foot, left ankle and left pointer, pinky and thumb fingers.  I also gave him his Zyrtec.  Mac went potty and brushed his teeth while Mitch put his socks and shoes on.  Then, Mitch went potty and brushed his teeth while Mac put his socks and shoes on.  I washed both of their faces and combed both of their hair.

08:45- The boys arrived at school.

11:50- I picked Mitch up from school.  He had a good day.  He played outside, made a necklace and drew a  race track.  He did not have a snack today.  Daddy was home when we got there and he stayed to have lunch with Mitch.  Mitch ate strawberries, chicken bites and some of daddy’s sandwich.  Mitch walked daddy to the door and then finished eating.  After eating it was time to go for a nap.   He went upstairs, went potty, washed up, changed clothes and I put Hydrophor and band aids on his bottom right foot, left ankle and left pointer, pinky and thumb fingers.  He fell asleep about 13:30.  I woke him up at 14:50 in order to pick Mac up from school.

15:15- We picked Mac up from school.  He had a good day.  He made a Tree Book, went to P.E., went to Music, worked on a handwriting sheet and read a book.  He did not have a snack and he did not go outside.  For lunch he ate Turkey slices and a slice of bread.  He did not eat his yogurt or grapes.  He said that he was talking alot and did not have time to finish.

When we got home Mac went straight to practicing his piano.  Mitchell and I went upstairs and got ready for Soccor and then he played with the fire truck.
