*Part 2 of the peanut allergy post: I took Dylan to the store and let him pick some snacks he would be happy with. He was a little too excited about it. "I want these! And these! And how about these?!" I had to reign him in a bit. Then, on Friday, even though the snacks were in a bag, sitting on the kitchen counter, I forgot to take them. When I picked him up from school, and asked what he had for snack, his lip started to quiver and his eyes got teary. "I had to eat Cheez-It's, and the other kids got a cookie cake again! You said you would take the special snacks we picked out, but you didn't!" (Excuse me while I straighten my "Mommy Of The Year" award). I am happy to report that I remembered to take them in today, so hopefully the snack dilemma is solved.
*Part 2 of The Ugly Shirt post: I told Jim yesterday that I had a blog post for him to read. I sat down next to him while he read it. When he got to the part that said that I threw his shirt away, he stopped and said, "YOU DID?!" I said, "Keep reading". Then, he read the next line that said "Yes, I DID". Ha!
Then, he asked, "Is it still in the garbage?", looking hopeful. I answered, "No, I waited until the garbage went out. Why do you think I waited until today to show you this post?" (Evil laughter).
*We have started touring schools for next year (he'll go to kindergarten). You know how much I love to tour schools, right?
*Dylan turns five this week! There was only one thing he could tell me that he wanted for his birthday - a Sudoku handheld game, that cost $14 at Target! I am really enjoying these days when his needs are simple. Material needs, that is. Emotional needs (time and attention) is a completely different story!
*I think I've mentioned that Dylan is obsessed with sports lately. His newest obsession is hockey. Um, yea... a sport that involves him swinging around a large stick. Could you all please keep your fingers crossed that I don't lose a tooth?
*Remember back in October I took Dylan to the farm on a 68 degree day AND it snowed the same week? Well, the second week in November, I took him to the zoo on a 68 degree day AND it snowed in the same week. Pittsburgh is a confusing place to live.
