Zoo with Friends

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

Evan went to the zoo a few days ago with his buddies Kyle and Lily and another little girl. Apparently they were all little angels with no big fights or tantrums and all let each other pick which animals to go see next.  Evan has been talking about his trip to the zoo with Lily and Kyle a lot lately. It sounds like a good time was had by all. Evan got to see the Tigers he wanted to see and they all caught a glimpse of the baby Jaguar cubs.

Bedtime Procrastination

Sunday, September 2nd, 2012

We did our bedtime routine as usual tonight and said goodnight to Evan.  Then the announcements started every couple of minutes:

“Daddy… I want a hug and a kiss”

“Daddy… I want you to sit on the couch”

“Daddy… did you already pick up my toys?”

“Daddy… I have to go potty”

“Daddy… I’m thirsty”

“Daddy… I have to go poop”

“Daddy… this toy in my room belongs in the living room, can you take it?”

“Daddy… I want that bathroom light off”

Then, he started taking his jammies off saying, “Daddy… I’m so hot” and he stripped down to his underwear. About 30 seconds later he said, “Daddy… I’m so cold, I need my jammies on,” giving me a big shiver.  I couldn’t help but laugh.
