Our Two Little Monkeys

11 notes

Brothers.

I can’t get over how much fun these two can have. Jack is so much more patient and kind with Max than his parents…but I suppose that’s to be expected.

We spent the morning enjoying cool temps at an outdoor concert. The boys wrestled, danced, and shared snacks.

After a weekend of less-than-stellar behavior from our resident threenager, these are the moments I wish to remember.

Spinach, plain Greek yogurt, frozen mixed fruit (strawberry, peach, mango, & pineapple), splash of OJ, and water. 

Not the first parent to discover this healthy solution, but man is it satisfying watching my boys drinking that spinach!!
(I’m loving it, too!)

My new toy! Too cheap for a Vitamix (seriously, can’t do it!) but this little guy just made a delightful frozen cherry/spinach smoothie that my 3 year old is downing. Yessssss

Today was a great day for the National Zoo! Perfect weather, happy boys, and only slightly obnoxious tourists. A win, for sure.

Summer is the perfect time to explore playgrounds. My friend, Becky, lives across the street from one of the best. So grateful for good friends, gorgeous weather, and carefree days.

Parents of the year.

Recently, Dan and I have noticed that Max acts (and is thus treated) more and more like a puppy.
1. He chews on everything
2. He drools
3. He gnaws on furniture and people
4. He eats his cereal in a bowl on the floor
5. We call to him, “come ‘ere Max!” when he wanders too far

Oh dear.

And…exhale!

Guys, my kids are rock stars! They just had the best day at their new daycare! I spent the day with a pit in my stomach, picturing sad, unruly boys. Man, was I wrong!! Jack participated in all activities, ate his whole lunch, took a nap, and was a sweetheart. Max never cried, played with toys, and babbled happily with the other little ones. I am so relieved!!

Thanks for reading my day-long daycare sob story. I know I worry too much, but I can’t help it! Those boys are my world. Developing trust in someone to watch out for their best interests is complicated and scary. Happy that we (Dan & I) trusted our gut and found a center that works for both our boys.

Phew!

Happy Friday!!
