november twenty-one :: 99 weeks old

Sean is 99 weeks old today. 99! No more double digits next week! 5 more weeks until his 2nd birthday (I guess I should start planning his party already? I've been thinking about it - just not made any set-in-stone plans yet. I did buy his bday invitations though).

Today I made a double batch of meat sauce. We had no more in the freezer so it was due time to make some more. I had to run out today because I didn't have any tomato paste. Then I got home and started making it - and realized that I didn't have any tomato juice. Thank heavens my mother had just enough in her cupboard and brought me over some on her way out to do some errands. One batch that I made today, was made with the italian tomatoes from my garden this past summer. We'd diced them and froze them. Very exciting!

While it was cooking on the stove, I set the timer near me, ad took a nap on the couch with Mack. A much needed nap. I've been so exhausted lately, the extra sleep was much needed. I'm just glad that Mack wanted to take a nap at the same time as I did!

After Jamie came home from work, I went to pick up Sean. The window to the right hand side is Sean's class. The reason why the window is painting is so that moms or dads can still peak in, but that the kids won't see you. A lot of the kids enter the daycare at this age, and need adjusting to get use to daycare. In August (or later if Sean's not ready), Sean will advance to the classroom to the left hand side. I really don't want to think about this - because I love his 2 teachers that he has now, and don't want him to move classes yet. But he'll be in the ladybugs classroom until he's at least 2 and a half years old, so I have some time to prepare myself! I wonder how he'll react to a move next summer. But we have plenty of time until we have to come across that obstacle. (If it's even an obstacle).

I peaked into Sean's classroom just before entering. Sean, in the grey shirt on the right hand side of the table (behind the girl in the blue shirt) was playing nicely at the table!

He was deeply concentrated on this puzzle where you put the foam numbers into their spot. We actually have the exact same one at home, from Jamie's mom, who used to be a preschool teacher. His teacher told me that he is very good at doing this puzzle, and I'm very impressed!

Tonight for dinner I made some pasta and we had fresh meat sauce. Oh, it's so good. I love sauce fresh out of the pot. Too good! What a treat. I bought some mozzerella cheese, so I plan on making some lasagnas to freeze. Oh, I love lasagna. And I prefer my pasta whole wheat. Delicious. I love pasta so much that I could eat it 3 meals a day every day, all year. Seriously. It's my fave meal. And I'm not picky with sauce either - though homemade meat sauce takes the cake. But I love pesto, and jarred sauces too, I won't complain. Hubby's been spoiled though, and only likes homemade sauce.

Sat on the couch this evening and knit. Had some wine with Jamie and we've been just been enjoying the evening. I've got to get up early tomorrow to take Sean to his swim class, I'm going to go crawl into bed with my book.

I love the painted window. What a wonderful idea. Sean looks like he was having fun with his classmates too! I'm glad for you that he is adjusting so well!

Those little foam puzzles are great! I had them for Paisley, ofcourse I need to replace them all for Rowan beause of lost pieces and what not but they are excellent.
I also am a BIG fan of pasta..especially homemade sauce and WW noodles. If I can't have homemade sauce, classico is the next best thing. :-)

You know, on the plus side, Sean will probably adapt better when he gets to kindergarten. My kids are in a private daycare, and I'm wondering how Émilie is going to react to being in a "real" school next September. (Yes, she starts kindergarten in the Fall. Aaack!)
