Bedtime problems with Aurora

Feb 3, 2014

I'm getting annoyed, so to keep my humor up, I'm going to record all the things Aurora needs from me before she falls asleep. All begin with her yelling, "Mommy!? MOMMY!!! MOMMYYYYYY!" She is swaddled in her special blanket from my mom, so she doesn't want to get out of bed...this is a GOOD thing. LOL....

It started snowing at about 9am this morning. I wasn't expecting it to last long, so I got the kids ready to go play. They were incredibly excited!

Quinn has named his time out timer "my tick-tick." He exclaims, "NO my tick tick!" when he's being taken to time out. When the timer rings, he has started covering his eyes or his ears because I always say something about the reason he was in time out before releasing him. Today, he covered his eyes and then, when I squatted down to wait for him to be ready to talk, he leaned forward and blew his nose in my face...good thing he doesn't have a cold! Crazy kid.

Observe the differences in how they are decorating their cookies. :) Quinn says he’s done… One m&m per cookie!

Quinn was very unhappy about dinner and was refusing to eat it. After dinner, Aurora, who had eaten very well, got a small piece of chocolate. Quinn was furious about this, but still didn’t want dinner. He carried his still-full plate into the kitchen and begged Wil again for chocolate. When he was told “not until you eat some dinner” again, Quinn very carefully set his plate on the ground, flung his fork down, then threw himself on the ground and cried.

Well, at least one of our kids knows what happens when they throw food on the ground… ;)

I just turned on Christmas music…for only the second time this month. I think Quinn shares my opinion of Christmas music because as soon as I turned it on, he started jumping up and down and screaming, “NOOOO! NO TISMAS MUSIT!” ;)
