05.31.10 :: 178 weeks old


Sean is 178 weeks old today.

There are forest fires in Quebec that is causing smog all across the city. The fires are said to be 300 km away from Montreal, but there’s a haze over the city here. I can’t believe how strong it is. It’s even worse in the city, which I noticed when I went to go drop off Jamie & one of his friend’s tuxes from the wedding last night to the rental place deep in the city (Parc Avenue near Mont Royal).

Sean this morning was given his slip for registration for swimming for next session and he will be advancing to next swim level! I am so proud of him! Way to go Sean! He was in Sea Turtle Non-Parented, and will move to Salamander. Mack should be moving to Sea Turtle Parented (until he’s 3), since he’s turning 2, but I am going to hold him back one more session (for now) in Duck, as Duck just happens to be at the exact same time as Salamander, so I can kill 2 birds with 1 stone and go only once to the pool. I’d go in the water with Mack while Sean has his lesson at the pool at the same time. Talk about effective use of time management.

This evening we went over to my parents house for dinner, and the boys made a lot of noise playing after we finished.


In other news, Sean is officially in Pull-ups. He has to be in Pull-ups to move to the next class on June 14th. I am very nervous on how this is going to go. So far, he’s still using the potty/toilet, but he’s still treating the pull-ups as diapers. We’ll see how it goes overnight. I hope he doesn’t take too long from this point on, he’s a very smart boy, and knows what’s going on. Those pull-ups are damn expensive, let me tell you. I’m hoping it’s an easy transition. Crossing my fingers.

I cannot believe tomorrow is June. Can you?
