A few highlights from lately…
I found Cole wiping himself in the bathroom the other day with the hand towel. After talking about how that is not okay (amidst laughter…), he says to me, “Mommy, when you don’t see me, that’s what I do.” Seriously!
We survived the week without Chris home! We kept ourselves busy with friends and playing outside. We raked leaves, visited a local farm’s pumpkin festival, hiked, and more! We were so thankful for Chris to come home! He was the brains behind our pumpkin face, too.
We took a hayride last night with some families from a mom’s group I am a part of. I wish I would have taken some pictures! The hayride took us through the woods in beautiful Brown County, and afterwards we had a bonfire with s’mores. Yum! The funniest part of the marshmallow experience was when my friend Melanie asked Cole if he liked roasting marshmallows. He quickly replied, “I like marshmallows, especially when they’re on fire!”
Max heard someone call me Anne the other day and now calls me Anne pretty often. The funniest moments are when he’s crying, wants me, and says, “Anne! Anne!” in a whiny voice. I just smile!
Cole and Max have been waking up ridiculously early for about a week. It’s been a shock! I’ve been giving them a drink and asking them to play in their room until 7:30. For the most part they’ve been happily playing but I get nervous when I hear loud banging noises! I think I’m going to buy a digital clock to put in the boys’ room and teach Cole that when the clock reads 7:30 they can come out. Anyone else have ideas for early risers or teaching about time?
