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....

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.

Quinn got some scrapes on his elbow at the park and he asked for a BIG bandaid. I was happy to oblige. This bandage is overkill on this scrape but Quinn feels better. ;)

I love self-motivated schoolish activities. She’s talking to Quinn about letters as much as he’ll listen. :)

I had my 3rd prenatal appointment today and when I came home, Quinn came running up to me, stopped short, and exclaimed, “Mommy! Where’s the baby!???” Poor kid.

Quinn called to me after his bedtime tonight…

Quinn: Mommy, I want a secret passage to you!
Me, confused: A secret…passage…to me?
Quinn: Yes! A secret passage right to you. I found one at the playground we went to. It has a FAST choo-choo train and it goes under all the beds and water and it goes “toooooot! toooot!”
Me: OK. That sounds like a nice secret passage.
Quinn, wrapping his arms around my hands: Yes! A secret passage to YOU!
