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!"

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.

Aurora is starting to learn idioms and it’s hilarious…

Me: It’s a rainy, wet, gross day and we have school and violin to get done.
Aurora: That means we can watch a movie!
Me: If we get math, reading, AND violin done before Daddy gets home then, yes, you can watch a movie.
Aurora: I’ll get it all done in one nick of time!

I love how Quinn’s cheeks get rosy when he’s been out in the cold. :)

I think Aurora needs more emerald green to wear. :) It brings out the hints of green in her eyes (though this picture doesn’t really show it well).

Quinn, at the top of his lungs, singing our meal prayer: DOD OUR FADDER, DOD OUR FADDER, DOD OUR FADDER, DOD OUR FADDER!
Me: Quinn, God can hear you even if you whisper. You don’t need to pray so loudly.
Aurora: I think Quinn is trying to annoy God…but God doesn’t get annoyed!
