Our Two Little Monkeys

Touché

We were those annoying parents who carelessly would say, “Jack has had no teething issues whatsoever…we don’t even KNOW when a tooth might appear!” Fast forward to three years later: Max’s teeth are on a full-scale assault. No one is safe from their terror.

Lesson: don’t brag about your first kid. It’ll come back to bite you with #2.

I’m gonna sleep again someday, right?

A touch of peace

Jack decided to ctfd today and give us some peace. No screaming tantrums, less defiance, and two MUCH happier parents. I know, he’s 3. I don’t expect an angel, but man he had a rough couple of days. We try to find the trigger: hunger, tiredness, illness…but basically he was just a lunatic.

We enjoyed the gorgeous weather, soaked in every bit of our Sunday, and got our groove back.

Hope everyone had a great weekend, or at least 1/2 of a great weekend! ;-)

Asking for a friend…

Sooo let’s say your almost 4 year old has been in an almost constant tantrum state for the past 24 hours. What do you do? Asking for…a friend.

Also, why is being an adult so damn hard today?

Throwin’ it back.

Max decided to throw it back to one year ago. Up every 2 hours. No thank you, Max. I was about to go all Samuel L. Jackson on you and read “Go the F to Sleep.” Not cool, man. Not. Cool.

Max celebrated his 1st birthday with close family and friends. The crowd was overwhelming at times, but he had a wonderful day. He liked the cream cheese icing on his cupcake, but preferred to be hand fed. He received some very sweet gifts, including some really fantastic new books. All-in-all, a fabulous day!
