I haven't forgotten about this blog... we are just enjoying our summer. Spending every waking moment with the neighborhood kids, going swimming, hiking and fishing. Fighting with brothers, spending hours making lego creations, catching fire flies. It's been a good summer so far! The boys are having a blast and we have one more trip planned before school starts!
But, still I am ready for school! 28 more days! I am sure some can relate with me.
I had a session last night.
Since the boys needed to get out of the house for a while and the weather was gorgeous, Scot decided to come with me and let the kids play at the park.
At the end of my session (also two boys) all the kids became instant friends and played for at least another hour.
While the kids played I had an interesting conversation with the Dad on how fun it is raising boys, especially brothers.
We both agreed, the teenage years should be a lot easier with boys then girls. We also spend a lot less money on clothing and accesories for boys. Boys don't care if they get dirty.
On our way back to the car Finn (newly potty trained) told me he had to go pee pee. This particular park does not offer any kind of public restrooms, so I took him to the edge of the park, pulled his pants down and he did his business.
Another thing that is easier about boys! haha
Not saying that girls are not amazing to raise and have other awesome qualities (remember I am a girl myself) but I think raising little boys is still very special to a Mommy's heart.
We are having our family pictures done this Friday and his hair was getting a little too shaggy.
Problem is: Scot wants his hair long, I like it short. Jake could care less.
Every time I take him to get a hair cut, they cut way too much off and Scot blames me.
So, I started trimming it myself for as long as I can. I have no idea what I am doing and I am sure whoever professional cuts his hair after x amount of my trimmings will be able to tell a crazy mom, took some cheap scissors to this boys hair.
And no I don't use Windex to spray on his hair... the bottle has been empty long time ago and now serves for my water sprayer on wrinkly clothes ;)
We have been spending a lot of time this year in waiting rooms. Finn has been diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder at the beginning of the year. There is a possible Aspbergers diagnoses but I am not sure about that yet. Life has always been much more stressfull with Finn. Scot and I have this saying "Everything is harder with Finn"... showers, cooking, eating, sleeping, driving... everything can be a struggle. Granted since we started the process of figuring out what's going on with him we have received lots of help and he is doing much, much better. We see a Sleep Therapist once a week, Speech, OT and some amazing people from Help me Grow. Things are really looking up and I know we are sooo close to figuring out what is going on with our little Monster. But in the mean time we have lots more Dr. visits (4 alone this week) and using the waiting rooms to catch up on our naps!
