Sammy always wants to climb up the ladder and see Daddy in the aa-kick (attic) so Thad let him go up and help him tonight a bit before bed.
The boys and I have been trying to stay busy and fun and sane (and I've been busy trying not to do anything I'll regret ;) to my two year old). Sammy has been in a mood or a funk or something this week. He doesn't want to sleep at night, he throws things, mouths off, and is just not being him. I don't know what to do. I need to do some research online and continue to pray hard because I need some major help or intervention! Supernanny where are you?! (This picture is when Sammy snuck outside and got on Ed's parked scooter!)
Here are some pictures that show you what we've been up trying to fit lots of fun times in before I officially head in to work on Tuesday bright and early for meetings and then to set up my room. I don't have students until Thursday, Sept. 4th.
Monday morning and Wednesday afternoon we spent sometime at the "happiest place on earth". I really do enjoy being with my family there. Monday we hit Disneyland, the Dumbo ride, the carousel, the monorail, and the train. Wednesday we went to California Adventure and did the Bug's Life Land with the toddler rides. It was a lot of fun!
Here is Sammy having fun on Flik's Flyers -- pretending to be a bug!Nathan enjoying being on Daddy's shoulders!
Friday night we went to see John Williams conduct the LA Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl. It was a nice show (besides the stressful part in the middle when my sitter called and said that Sammy wouldn't go to bed, and kept coming out of his room. I finally called my mom and she went over about 9:45 and used her ANGRY voice and it worked! Thank goodness for moms!) My favorite part was when they played the theme from Star Wars about 200 people pulled out their lightsabers -- it looked really neat! I think that my favorite song was the Superman theme though. :)
We also went to Oceanside for a day but my camera died before I got any good pictures of my kids. Today I just tried to relax a bit, but I had to do some laundry, dishes, and light cleaning. Sigh. I am super worried about next week if Sammy keeps this up. I can't get my work stuff done if I have to fight with him for an hour and a half every night to get him to bed. I have work that I have to do once they go to sleep...and food to fix...and dishes to do...and laundry to fold/put away...and toys to clean up...and man, that makes me tired thinking about doing all that!
