The Bunny Has Been Recovered

On Sunday the boys came running down the stairs shouting, "mom, look what we found!"  I almost cried when I saw Sam's stinky "bunny."  Apparently it had been shoved into one of Finn's toy dump trucks.  I am tempted to go ahead and steal it from Sam and hide it away safely in my cedar chest.  I have decided that "bunny" will be the baby toy I keep of Sam's and "little blanket" will be what I keep of Finn's.

Sam being a ninja turtle.  He really gets into the role.
Michael and Finn spent much of Sunday afternoon building his "Lego" Spiderman/bad guy van with Michael.  Finn did awesome.  Michael has the patience of a saint I tell you.

This week was spirit week at school.  Monday was character day.  Finn dressed as a ninja turtle (go figure) and Sam went as a little bit of everything.  He had a "Batman" hat, a "Superman" shirt and "Spiderman" shoes.

Tuesday was "Tie-Dye" shirt day.  Neither of my boys own any tie-dye so they went in regular clothes as shown above.  Finn was pretty bothered by the fact that he didn't have a tie-dyed shirt.  His solution was to just not go to school.

Wednesday was "Hawaiian" shirt day.
Finn has an great Hawaiian shirt.  Sam has an "actual" Hawaiian shirt.  He is wearing a shirt with a hula dancer on it that Gran bough in Hawaii.


  1. I like Finn's solution to not being able to participate in "tye-dye" shirt day.
    He is either passionate about participating fully in school life, or, a future lawyer (as evidenced by his gift of creative problem solving).

  2. Let poor little Sam keep his bunny. It won't be long before he will move on to other toys. Remember how upset you were because Finn turned 5 years old????

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."

Surprise sickness

When I picked Will up from daycare yesterday, I was informed that several babies had gone home throwing up.  Thirty minutes later - Will threw up too - in the car! It was so gross and so smelly.  The boys were really upset. For a minute, I thought they would throw up from the smell.  Luckily, we were on our way to the dentist so they quickly forgot about Will's vomit and started panicking about the dentist.  You see, I had kept this little tidbit from them until right before time to go.  This spared me days of whining.

Oh, and Will just started eating carrots.  That is why he is orange. 
When he got to the dentist's office I took Will in to change him.  When I pulled his only spare outfit out of the diaper bag I notice that the "do not steal me" hard, plastic tag was still attached.  Perfect.  I decided that he would just wear nothing.  So he sat in my lap, wearing nothing but his diaper all while throwing up into a baby blanket.  It was a make it work moment.  And o…

Sleep Training

Since he came home from the hospital, Will has slept right next to me.  For the first few weeks it was on the air mattress. Then we moved to the couch. Then we moved to a twin mattress in the floor of Will's room.  It didn't take long until we permanently took up residence in the marital bed - thus effectively evicting Michael.

We NEVER let Finn or Sam sleep with us - Will was different story.  He was a bit needier that Finn or Sam.  We were able to put both boys in their own crib at around 6 weeks and while they whimpered a bit - we were both able to self soothe enough to go to sleep.  Will hated his crib from the word go.  Whenever we put him in it he would scream until we finally came to rescue him (his words - not mine).  The times we tried, he would scream for well over an hour without tiring.  It was exhausting. So, we let him win.  This is how he wound up sleeping in our bed for six months.

Now, I am not complaining.  I LOVED having Will next to me in bed.  We both sle…
