The trash can ride

Originally uploaded by The Joys of Motherhood
We went to Golden Heritage Days last night and all of the kids had fun. Lauren rode this ride three times. Jenna enjoyed people watching and Jack wanted out of his stroller to run and run and run. After the festivities, we went to Rebecca's house for a bath and then home to bed. It was a fun night and we avoided all of the rain, although there was a huge clap of thunder and a few bolts of lightening in the distance. We were able to stay dry and that was pretty important, too.

MOMMA! We're going to go to Chuck E Cheese!!!

So, today we are going to the place normally reserved for birthdays only in order to support our school's fundraiser. I know she will have a blast and so will Jack, but the only way we can go is because John is in town. Otherwise, I cannot be two places at once and we wouldn't be going.
I will let you know how it goes...

Did you ever have one of those days...

Yesterday, Jack woke up foul! Angry, screaming, tears. The whole nine yards. It barely improved, up until the vomitting in JCPenney's. He just missed the clothing, but made a HUGE mess. Then we came home, I took the stroller completely apart to clean it, got Lauren from school, we went to dance class and her teacher was 15 minutes late for our first class and most days I could have stayed late, but last night was my first PTA meeting and I am the secretary, so I should be there. Headed home from dance after sitting in traffic and during the entire class and drive home, Jack SCREAMED, "ALL DONE! ALL DONE! ALL DONE! ALL DONE!!!" Relaxing, it was not. Came in the house, got the kids in the tub and out, fed them supper, passed John in the doorway (literally) and got to my meeting with four minutes to spare. Good meeting and kids were good for John and happy when I got home, so all was well.

Jack and his class

Yesterday, we had Kindermusik again and he had a much better time. We are just going to have to go at his pace and not try to do what kids who have been in the class since before they could hold up their own heads can do. They know what to expect. They know the approximate order of things. Jack doesn't. He's trying. And I think he's doing pretty great!
