My parents have been wonderful in helping get furniture moved, walls painted, etc. One evening they came over so mom and I could go look a fabric for Dane's room. I left the boys at the house because the thought of fabric shopping while dragging my dad, husband and son just doesn't sound like much fun. A few days later Chaz was super excited to show me something on his camera (he has one of those cute little kid cameras and loves to take pictures. One day I will pull all the pictures off his camera and post them in their own blog. They are quite humorous to say the least) Anyways, he brings me the camera to show me this....and follows with this commentary "So, Papa was sleepin' in the chair and I took his picture. Don't tell him because it is a secret!!!" Sure enough! I sent the picture to my dad via text and he confirmed he had no clue the 4 foot paparazzi was stalking him. Awesomeness!!
This heat has cause extreme exhaustion for this momma. Thank goodness I have a wonderful hubby who doesn't mind taking a restless 3 year-old on a car ride to calm him down and hopefully get him to sleep--all while momma gets in bed early!! Well, that is what I thought was happening when I saw this picture pop up on Facebook...along with the caption "At Braums. Supposed to be going to sleep. Shhhhh!! Momma doesn't know!" Time stamp 9pm. This is my life folks!!
not the most successful adventure but they always seem to have fun. I love the look of determination, complete with protruding lips.
Here is the boy as he discovered his room was pretty much empty..A couple things to point out 1) This BRIGHT green shirt is his favorite. He will wear it with anything! 2) the shirt is on backwards...and I don't care 3) when he goes into his brother's room... he is looking for his underwear in the top drawer. This is the only concern he had. He wanted to make sure we were not giving his underwear to Dane. Big concerns!
This is what I walked into.. He was putting all his clothes in the drawers... Looks pretty innocent, right?
Yeah, not so much! He had taken ALL of his clothes out of his closet. His clothes that I had gone through and neatly organized the day before. His dress up clothes were in the drawers under the bed along with some books. His shirts were in the drawers on the stairs along with his shoes. Not at all the plan. Everything that wouldn't fit... well, yeah... on the floor. Oddly enough it didn't take much convincing to get him to help me reorganize it. He loved the bed so much that as long as we were "spending time" with it, he was ok.
He even organized his books for me. They are not turned how I would like but I decided not to fight that battle. I had all the clothes in put away how I wanted, so I could have cared less how the books were organized... they were on the shelf and that was enough for me!
along with Lightening McQueen and The King.... and two flashlights. All of which are VERY necessary to bedtime, according to my little guy.
I will post some pictures once the boys rooms are fully put together. We are going at a rather slow pace but hopefully it will be together before Dane gets here :)
