Yesterday morning I actually got to sleep in until 7:30 (yay!) and was in a good mood getting breakfast going for the kids before school. Then, I did an AWFUL HORRIBLE THING….I accidentally bonked Stephen in the head with his cereal bowl. He cried, I apologized and tried to move on with the day, but he just kept screaming and screaming. He went to his room and SCREAMED, then he came back down and SCREAMED how hungry he was, but he was so busy screaming he wouldn’t sit down to eat the cereal sitting at his place. Adrian found the whole spectacle good for his breakfast entertainment. I finally put Stephen’s shoes, jacket, and backpack in the car and then buckled him in (still screaming). I got everyone into the car, and Stephen screamed all the way to school…all the way into the school…(see the pitying looks of the other moms as they watch me carrying a 17month old while dragging my four year old into school)…until the director of the preschool took him into class herself because of all the screaming. Yikes!
He was just fine when he got home (apparently no concussion from the cereal bowl bonk), and it was a beautiful day, so we walked to the park. Adrian discovered that his new love is going down the slide. He goes down on his tummy, laughing all the way. He even went head first a few times! As soon as he gets to the bottom, he signs “more more” and toddles as fast as he can toddle over to the ladder to do it again.
Stephen found an abandoned red plastic wolverine ring at the playground and decided to keep it. He said that he will keep it forever and sleep with it. So now he wants to sleep with his blue blankie, his brown blankie, his huggable hippo pillow pet, and a few pairs of the superhero underwear he got for Christmas (seriously, he was SO excited about his superhero underwear and he sleeps with it. He also gets upset if he mixes up the order of what superhero he is wearing which day).
The day ended well, but had a lot of crazy!
