Things I am learning about Sam . . .


                                      
1. I am learning that Sam will probably grow up to be what is called a "Type A" personality. Sam does everything to the best of his ability - even throwing fits.  On Thursday I took Sam to get a haircut at Danny's.  On the way home I seriously considered robbing a pharmacy and stealing all the valium. It was an awful experience, for Sam; for me; for Danny; and for all other patrons at the Salon.  For 20 minutes Sam threw his head around, he kicked, he hit and he screamed.  At one point I had him in a head lock with one arm and I was desperately holding his legs with the other  The next day I took Finn back for his haircut.  On of the other stylist came in and commented on how cute Sam is.  Danny responds, "were you here yesterday."  An "ah -hah" look crossed her face and she said, "no, but I heard all about it."  Referring, of course, to Sam's haircut.


2.  Sam loves his bunny.  On Wednesday morning I went to get Sam out of his crib.  He was holding his bunny.  I tried to pry it out of his hands and put it back in the crib.  Sam started to cry and as clear as day said, "I can't leave it."   On Wednesday night Sam said "sleepy mommy."  He then grabbed his bunny - which was still downstairs - and laid down with him on the den floor.

  1. That describes Cooper at every single hair cut for the past 4 years....welcome to my life. My arms are noodles when we leave from holding him with all my might so that his eyeball doesn't get cut.

Manhandled

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.


Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 


Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.






We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…

Gatlinburg 2.0

In mid-June Finn and Sam accompanied Grandad and Gigi to Gatlinburg.  This is their second annual trip so will refer to it as Gatlinburg 2.0. Michael, Will and I were at home, so outside of some awesome pictures and few sweet phone calls, we don't have a great deal of knowledge about the trip. What I do know is that the trip started with hot Kristy Kremes.  Upon arriving in Gatlinburg, Finn asked if the "hot sign" was on.  Seeing that it was, they stopped in for donuts.


They also went back to Clingman's Dome.  They went last year, but I didn't pack long pants and jackets so they were pretty chilly.  It was also really foggy last year.  This year went as planned; the air was clear and the boys were warm.


One of my favorites!



Another favorite.




And . . . another favorite.









They went to Dollywood later than evening and then again the next day.



It amazes me how pop culture "savy" kids are at 5.  I was never that "in the loop."
