Balloons and Ice Cream
We took an emergency family outing to Oberweis last week, we all needed ice cream and STAT. It's been an extremely hot and humid August and I am well overdue for my annual "I'M READY FOR FALL" rant...brace yourselves, it's coming.
Charlotte encountered her first balloon at the ice cream store and loved it. Sam enjoyed his very first ice cream cone. Believe it or not, the poor three year old has only eaten ice cream out of a dish with a spoon because his parents were too afraid the ice cream would end up on the sidewalk if he held a cone. We were wrong. It's all over his face instead.
In other news, it's looking like Sam is dropping his afternoon nap. Sigh. It's been a good run, I suppose it's time to introduce "Quiet Time in Our Room." We tell him he can wake up "when there's a 3 on the clock."
He pops out of his room today at 1:03 pm. "There's a 3, Mom!"
"No Sam, the FIRST number has to be a 3."
His blonde head sticks out the door. "There's a 3, Mom!"
And so on.
Preschool on Tuesday/Thursday mornings starts in three short weeks, I guess he's ready.
