Nighty Night, Foofs!

I went to put Liv to bed last night. She was stalling and kept saying "Mommy, puppy? Mommy, penguin? Mommy, bear?" until every last stuffed animal was in bed with her lol. She still takes a binkie at night, and she's clutching her favorite blanket, which she kneads in the middle of the night. It's very cute to watch. Jake used to do the binkie sweep and keep 3 binkies with him, and Liv has her blanket lol

Tuesday-Day 2-NO FROWNIES!!!

No pictures, just a proud moment in my house! Back story-His teacher forgot to give him his prize on Monday. Jake was alittle panicky, so I told him not to worry, that I would email her. So, when I emailed her, I asked if she could give him 2 prizes as an incentive, since he didn't get any frownies. I bought 2 bags of those glass stone thingys (you like my technical terms??) They are the kind that you put in clear glass bowls and then put dried flowers in-they're for decorative purposes, but Jake loves them. He's currently collecting them so that he can put them in a fish tank. He's determined to get a fish for his birthday. I bought 2 different shapes, so he's picking different colors, etc.
So, I see him walking down the hallway with this satisfied grin on his face. When he reached me, I said, "So, how'd it go?" He slowly opened up his hand-he had 4 stones!!!! I just looked at him and he said proudly, "NO FROWNIES TODAY!!" I am so proud of him! It is so hard for him to concentrate and sit still in class, so this is huge!
I have to say, I truly don't expect him to be frownie-less today. Today is CCD, and for some reason, he has it in his head that he HATES it. So, he almost always acts up worse on Wednesdays. I guess we shall see!
