This morning Elliot was telling me that we have to bake cookies, and set them out, and then Santa will come and pass out presents. I asked him what happens if you don't have a chimeny, which we don't, and he said he comes thruogh the window. I explained, yet again, that we don't do the Christmas thing and Santa doesn't come to our house. He was disappointed and asked why? I feel so bad. He did mention that we don't need to make to many or Santa will get sick...So then he comes home from school and says " mom, my bus driver said... umm said... umm... something about christmas and gave me this candy." " I said, " like Merry Christmas?" " Yeah" Then he sits and eats his candy in front of Brookelyn and I suggest sharing with her. He says " but mom, she only said merry christmas to me" So I told him then i'll buy Brookelyn some and not him, thinking he'd share, but he said "okay." Obviously I tried to teach him something and it didn't work out. That's what my beef is with Christmas anyway. Kids get greedy and selfish and are so concerned with the gifts. I am glad that the holiday is almost over and we won't have to deal with it again for a whole year. My mom and dad are on their way over to take the kids shopping and out to McD's, and Jason and I are going to grab supper and who knows what else we'll do while in town? Probably something romantic like getting (over priced) groceries from Festival Foods! Hope everyone has a great holiday!
Well, i've been dragging my feet about getting things in order and planned for Trae's upcoming 1 year birthday. I had no idea he would grow up this fast, and i've been in serious denial. Soooo, this week he decides that if it's up to mommy, he'll remain a baby forever, and weans himself off of his nuk. So it's been crazy in meeting because he's learned all these new words recently, the newest being night night. (nanigh) So, he jabbered on and on saying gamma, hey, naa(no) and eventually I just stayed out until the last hymn. And in place of the nuk to go to sleep, he nurses, and then tosses and turns for about 15 min, until I try to rock him or bounce him. He screams and throws a fit until he's to tired, and then conks out. Very frustrating for me. ( and daddy) So I decided on a John Deere theme for the party on January 12. It sounds like most of the family can make it, and now i've got to get rolling on buying all the party fixings. I have no ideas on what to get him as a gift. By the third baby, you've got everything, but i'd love any suggestions....if I asked him, he'd probably want a Wii or an X-box given how fast he's grown up. I am going to need a lot of support the week of his birthday,so i'm counting on you girls...!
