Bras & Candy

It's been busy around here, but the most important updates are as follows: John is still hiding candy wrappers under his bed and Sam has taken up with one of my bras.

Even amongst all those perties in his exersaucer, he still prefers that bra. I have visions of a three-year old Sam dragging that old nasty bra to preschool.

Now, with regard to this. We caught the Easter 2010 candy binge early, but we had already warned him not to put the wrappers under his bed. So, because the warning likely came after the binge had begun, he tried to clean it up by urinating under his bed, apparently in an effort to "wash away the trash."

This stash is nothing compared to the Halloween 2009 pile.

So, that's baking soda on his rug. I am really getting concerned about his hygeine. I also suspect he's been snorting dirt, based on the state his nose is in every night pre-bath.

There have also been some mysteries and new games around these parts.  This weekend I found Sam, in his exersaucer, on the porch, totally drenched from head to toe.  John had been watering the plants, but he didn't know anything about it.

And then there was a game of throwing a beach ball "to" Sam.  Not to be confused with what it might look like had he been throwing the ball "at" Sam.

And this morning I caught him attempting to sit "by" Sam, which, was weird to me because it looked an awful lot like what I might call sitting "on" Sam.

Prepositions are tricky.

And now picture me singing the opening few lines from "I Have Confidence" from The Sound Music:

What will this day be like?
I wonder.
What will my future be?
I wonder.

I go back to work in less than two weeks.  I am despairing about this. Last night I dreamed that one of my colleagues fed Sam to a grizzly bear.

The good news is that I found a daycare for Sam, starting in August.  He'll go there until his first birthday, at which time he'll go to the same preschool John has been attending for the last couple years.  It's very close to our house and on the way to B's school, so he'll likely be dropping off Sam while I attend to our budding kindergartner.

And just to end on a good note, John has really been enjoying a series of books by Nancy Carlson, especially the Loudmouth George series.  Sam sits in my lap and tries to eat the books listens while we read.  John has also been enjoying the Children's Bible that the Easter Bunny brought and a book of Greek mythology, particulary the story of Medussa.

Looks like with a boy of my own I have a lot to look forward to!

You should probably see a specialist about John's behavior around Sam. Jack never does anything like that to Lucy. Not ever.
