President Lincoln

After picking the boys up from school I took a look in Finn's folder and saw that his Bible verse for the week is Roman 3:23.  I asked Finn to say it for me and he quoted the verse and finished by saying "Romans 3:23."  Sam then says "just like Roman Reigns."  I got so tickled.

When we got home we went over Finn's school work and then we played Candyland.  Sam actually knows how to play now.

After our game the boys played outside while I made supper.  Finn made the comment last year to Ms. Cindy that he really liked soft tacos and that he wanted her (Ms. Cindy) to ask me to make them at home.  Well tonight Finn got his wish.  I made soft tacos with ground buffalo meat and the boys loved them.

After dinner the boys asked to watch Rocky so I turned on Rocky IV.  During the final fight, Finn started asking me about the members of the Polit Bureau. I explained that one of the men was the President of Russia.  I then asked Finn if he knew who the President is.  He said, "yes" in such a way that he sounded offended that I even asked.  Then he said, "The President of the United States is Abraham Lincoln."  I explained that at one point Abraham Lincoln was the President, but that our current President is Barack Obama.  Finn thought about it for a second and said, "sounds a little like Brock Lesner."  

After a brief and cursory explanation of the Cold War, Finn went upstairs and put on a pair of blue shorts and a white shirt. He then explains that he is wearing blue and white which are "most of the colors of America."  Then he started his fake match with his fake Russian opponent. 

As a result of all the punching, the boys were completely tuckered out.  This is how I found them.

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…
