march thirty

This morning I kept Sean home from daycare. It was just one of those mornings, where we all (me and the 2 kids) all slept in. We are usually up by 7 am, maybe 7:30 am latest, but we just all over slept. I do not feel right sending Sean to daycare after waking up so late, because there is no way he'll nap at noon (12-3pm is nap time at daycare). It just wouldn't be right, so I kept him home. So this morning I packed up both kids once we were ready and headed to the nutritionists office. I've now lost 19.2 lbs. I am so freakin' excited to hit the 20 lbs lost mark... soooo close. And then I only have 15 more lbs to go to reach my goal. I can do it, I can do it.... but it's sooo freakin' hard... let me tell you.

This afternoon I picked up my mom and we headed west just across the bridge, off the island of Montreal for a change of scenery. I had some errands to run, and some items to cross of my to-do list, or rather to-get list, and it was a nice change of scenery indeed. I picked up this very cute Habs hat for Mack while we were out. The original Habs hat, that he would have inherited, has been missing for a very long time (still upset about it)... (Sean however still wears the habs gloves that came with that habs hat, they're hanging in his winter jacket now, as I type).

On our way home (it was about a 30 minute drive) both kids passed out. I dropped my mother off at her house, and I knew that if I went home, Sean would wake up. So I drove around for about another half hour, before he woke up and then headed home. There is no transferring Sean anymore. Once he's woken up, he's up.... it's a disaster. I wanted him to nap, no questions about it. I couldn't even go into the driveway, park the car, get my laptop and come back and sit in the car. I had to keep the car moving in order to keep him asleep. Oy, this is getting even more trickier. So I drove around, checking out houses for sale, checking out new streets that I didn't even know existed... that sort of thing. Oy, the things I'll do to keep Sean asleep. (Mack still is very easy to keep asleep, as he's still in his bucket, but once he's in a big boy car seat, it'll be a whole other story!)

For no reason at all - a self portrait of Mackie & I.

No teeth, but he eats cherioes.

Or so I think he eats his cherioes?

Tonight at dinner, Sean was not a good boy. Jamie had to work late, and I had to deal with this on my own, while trying to feed Mack who was freaking out because I was not feeding him fast enough. Ah.... I wanted to rip my hair out. I put Sean in time out, and told him to think about what he did. I had to run back to the kitchen and continue to shovel food into Mack's mouth as he was screaming his head off (when do they learn to feed themselves again?). Ah, that was fun. Jamie got home not too much later, (I did call him to find out when he'd be home and he was actually leaving in 5 minutes), and I took Sean out of time out once Jamie got home. Though, he was being all "in my face" "I think it's funny" and wouldn't listen to me when I went to go pull him out of time out, and so I told him when he's done acting silly, to come talk to me, and left him. I just wasn't in the mood to continue that conversation. Jamie somehow got him to calm down, and come over to me and apologize and give me a hug. He's super cute with his "I'm sorry mommy". How can I resist staying mad at him? Though, I'm sure throwing his bowl against the wall won't be the last time he'll do something like this.

This evening I worked on my step-mother-in-law's vest. It's coming along! Getting there! So close. I can see an end coming! I've also picked up the stitches for the button band on Mack's Moss Block Cardigan, which I should get done hopefully this week. It'll be sweater weather before I know it, and he'll need his new sweater!
