Jack kept me on my toes the past few days! When the routine falls apart so does Jack! I think he has what we can call "Easter Hangover" suffering from not over-chocolating, but from so much fun. He had so much fun playing with Mimi, Papa, Kim, Grace and Caleigh and of course his mommy and daddy. We played and played and played and played. But in all the excitement we forgot to rest during the day aside from his nap and have quiet snuggle times. Which as you likely know, leads to an overtired monster!
Today we are finally back into routine and he is enjoying a great balance of play and quiet play so hopefully he will settle better for naps and nighttime sleep. Which leads me to today's outdoor play time - TRUCKS!
|OMG momma... there are trucks out here! AND I can play with them in the dirt.|
|Fixing up the onion patch in the garden. Patting down the dirt and leveling it.|
|Moving the truck to the next flower bed to do some digging and grading.|
Getting outside is honestly such a huge deal breaker for Jack. It washes away any cranky pants mood that is festering and energizes him. He zoomed around the backyard with his truck army for a whole hour without stopping for a moment. He would just go from truck to truck to car and around again.
He loved zooming this car over the edges of the patio stone making it flip and jump into the air. Oh boy he makes me laugh. This truck got its workout and is amazingly strong.
We were given a great car from our neighbor across the road. Jack is slowly figuring out how to manuever in it but really just enjoys being pushed around. I got my workout today halfbent running all around the yard pushing this darn this while he shrieked "MORE" and "Beeepbeepbeeeep!". Fifteen years from now we could have a speed demon hitting the roads. You've been warned!
I had no idea how much I would enjoy playing all the "Boy" things I didn't play when I was little. I am exploring a whole new world right along with Jack. It totally makes up for the lack of tutus and hairclips. Not that its likely any daughter of mine will need hairclips until they are at least two based on Jacks hair growth haha.
|Lucy watched us play from a safe height - today she knew it was only inevitable she would become roadkill in our backyard freeway antics.|
