Not a Painter

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012

Evan continues to refuse to paint at preschool.  I think he’s decided it is just too messy.   His class has 8 kids, so on his class room wall there are 7 paintings and 1 crayon drawing. :o)

Fingers Crossed

Saturday, October 13th, 2012

We were waiting in line for the Bus tour at the Zoo. I told Evan that we might not make it on the bus that was ready, since there were so many people in front of us, but if we didn’t make it, then we would get on the next bus in a few minutes. Then I said, “Cross your fingers.” He said, “I don’t want to cross my fingers, I want to get on the bus!”

Swimming

Saturday, October 13th, 2012

Evan has been enjoying another round of swimming lessons with Mr. Mike at Floaties Swim School. He’s been learning to go under water, the safety circle and is starting to learn how to paddle, but he’s really got the after swim look and routine down with the Starbuck’s hot chocolate.

Hug

Sunday, October 7th, 2012

When Evan woke up from a late nap:

Mommy: Do you want mommy to lay down with you or do you want to get up?

Evan: (in the sweetest most pitiful voice) I just want a hug.

Evan:  Where’s Daddy?

Mommy: He went to pick up dinner.

Evan: Is he coming back or not?

Tired Parents

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

A few weeks ago, Daddy came home and crashed on the couch. Mommy, started giving him a hard time and a friendly argument ensued about who was more tired. Evan piped in, “Let Daddy sleep, he’s tired.” Mommy said, “What about Mommy?” Evan said, “There’s room on the floor.”
