I haven’t done one of these in a while.
Our week in three words:
The birthday and Christmas countdowns have begun. D3 and I made a chain to countdown to his birthday, Christmas, and then his brother’s birthday.
Dan was smart and came up with the idea to color code the links, so we could countdown to all three events on one chain. The green are links until D3’s birthday and then red from D3’s birthday until Christmas, and then yellow from Christmas to B’s birthday. D3 tears one off each night before bed.
December is such a hectic time for us with both boys’ birthdays and Christmas, but I love it. They don’t know any different than to have their birthday right beside Christmas, and so far I think we’ve done a good job making a big deal about their birthdays and not lumping them into Christmas. Dan thought maybe I should do a PSA for sleeping in separate rooms during the month of March, but I love having Christmas babies! (and he might possibly kill me for saying that J)
D3 is super excited and B is also, even though he’s not sure why. He knows something is up though.
It might have something to do with the “teee” in the living room. It is filled with “balls” that B likes to take off and throw across the room. <sigh> Thank goodness for the purchase of shatterproof ornaments.
