A Glimpse Into Our Week

 I decided to sneak up on Henry at school during water play last Friday morning, while on my way to the doctor, just a few blocks from his school. He loves Friday mornings at school during the summer because of water play and his Monkeynastix class we enrolled him in.

 So much for sneaking...he saw me and this is what I caused. Poor thing. I had also locked my keys, purse and phone in my truck and had to walk to the doctor with my camera and daycare security key in my hand. I was really winning as a mother, I tell ya! Our little daddy brought me keys and all was right with the world...except Henry saw his daddy drop the keys off at daycare and cried like a fat child. Poor Henry.

Baths are a favorite at our house. Henry likes them because it means fun times, and we like them because it means Henry won't be stinky or sticky anymore. This little buddy gets SO dirty! It is unreal. He is all boy.
 We are learning to potty this summer. I am not stressing myself about it and just letting it happen when it happens. He sits on the potty at school throughout the day and we have him sit on it at home once each night. He still wears pull ups and he is not aware of when he needs to go. His pull ups are still wet most times. He is learning though.
Our friend James watched him for me last night while his wife and I ran in the park. They have a 5 yr old son. I got back from the park and James had taken Henry to the potty. I had not even asked him to do it. James rocks. Randall is also really good about taking him to the potty. Daddy's really do deserve a sticker for rocking out the potty business. Henry earns a sticker every time he goes. He loves a sticker!
While at Nana's over the weekend he used the potty and earned return address labels because Nana was unaware of the sticker reward system. I failed to tell her. Henry thought the labels said "Henry used the potty!". Nana thought quick on that one! He even left James' house with a sticker. He was so excited

 When our sweet, hard-working daddy is gone out of town this precious little munchkin finds his way to "Mama's big bed" in the night and because this little mama is usually spent from flying solo, I let him stay. I took this last night of him asleep on my pillow. I still melt for this precious face. I swore my child would never sleep in my bed. I now eat my words and don't mind the taste of it one bit.

 We had our buddy Barrett come over the other night with his mama, Meagan. Our boys are 1 week apart in age and are in the same class at church. They are going to be good friends and it makes me so glad.

Barrett is also an only child, and like Henry, he is has his picture taken 51,210 times a day. Both of them were sitting on top of the slide saying "cheese" out of habit with little expression as soon as they saw me pick up the camera. It was funny and sad at the same time. Those poor boys are both so rotten.

So funny! We have to be related. Love the address labels. That was quick thinking. I have one that gets in the bed with us in the middle of the night. Had to eat my words too. They are only little once. They won't want to do that forever.

When our daddy is outta town working, little man is in bed with momma too. I, too, had to eat those words as well. But it is just WAY easier to scoot over then to get up & walk him back down the hall to his bed! ha! Cute post.
