This afternoon Sean & I played some cards. He wanted to play poker. Since you can’t exactly get a 3 year old to understand poker, I had to invent a game. We took 2 decks. Sean’s idea was to separate and each get a color. So for round one I had all the red cards (hearts & diamonds) and he had all the black cards (spades & clubs). Then we shuffled the cards we had. We flipped them one by one and whomever had the higher card got a poker chip. At the end, whomever had the most poker chips, won. It was fun. We played two rounds, the 2nd row we switched the color of cards so I had the black ones and he had the red ones. It was fun.
I’ve also crochet a few dish cloths today for my step-mother-in-law. She had requested some on Friday, and I managed to get 2 done. I want to make at least one more, time permitting – before tomorrow’s seder. I want to be able to give them to her then.
Last weekend Jamie & I cleaned out our Tupperware drawer. Anything that didn’t have a lid or lids that didn’t have a bottom, were chucked. It’s amazing how many pieces we had that didn’t have a mate. I am telling you – because we put everything back into the 2 tupperwear drawers (smaller ones in one and larger ones in another), my life this week has been so much easier. No more frustration trying to find tupperwear lids to match what you’re trying to store. Ahh, spring cleaning has been good mentally too!
Tonight I switched Mack’s wardrobe over from size 18 months to size 24 months / size 2. No more baby… he’s a big boy now. I can’t believe he’s a toddler now. He’s been a toddler for a while, but he was still my baby. No more. The kid talks now. He understands and answers back. He has opinions. When did my baby grow up? I can’t believe how much clothes he has though. I won’t need to do his laundry at least for the next month & a half. I never even realized Sean had this much in size 2/24 months. Though, I do have to say there is new stuff that was put into Mack’s closet that was gifts for Mack. So that added to it. Well, he’ll for sure be one well dressed kid. No doubt about that.
