Sam's First Day of K-3

The day has arrived - Sam can walk.  He was doing much better Wednesday night so we decided that Thursday would be THE day.  Michael took him to school and told me that Sam did great - he just walked right in.  Maybe I should say he "limped" in.  While is he walking, he still favors his left foot.

I picked the boys up later than day.  Both Sam and Finn had a great days. 

Later than evening I went to take the carry permit course (again).  Last time I went with mom - this time I went with my lawyer friends from Juvenile Court.  I got there around 5:30 p.m. and got home around 12:30 a.m.  It was a long night, but we had a ball. 

Robyn and Samantha - point their guns in safe directions.

Erin Stubbs - looking studious. 

Erin, Patti, Brian (Patti's husband), Robyn and Samantha.  This was midway through the evening.  I have no idea how we got through the class - we laughed and cut up way too much.  Luckily, Patti is good friends with the instructor and he let us have as much fun as we wanted.

This is apparently what I look like when I shoot.  Believe it or not, I am actually trying to look serious. 

We all passed.  I did even better this time than last time. EStubbs did the best!

Our instructor!

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…
