Rain, Nor Sleet, Nor Dark of Night

April 22nd, 2010 — 4:08am

Another post from “Babby“. Fantastic!

Today has been awesome. Neither rain nor more rain will stop these two explorers from going to their zoo to see their favourite animals. So with the rain coming down we packed our bags and headed off to have a great day outside in the RAIN.

The weather did not faze the boys at all. Bundled up and feeling rather roasty toasty we just strolled around. Today the boys were rather definite in their joint decision that they wanted to see the Hippo’s which we did find. But as far as Hippo’s go these were no exception, all they did were stand in the water sleeping and the boys just stood there and laughed at them for about 10 to 15min. They thought the Hippo’s to be so funny. Then we heard the lions and they were off, jumping in the odd puddle on their quest to find the grunting lion, which yet again we did do. After dragging me around the zoo for almost one and a half hours we decided to head home but not before we stripped in the car and climbed into some nice warm and dry clothes for our trip home.

Both boys have been really great and we have not had many issues at all today. Levi and Milo have both been really playful and full of stories. I asked them to sing the ABC song with me and Levi actually tried picking up on the odd letter here and there. It was so cute and also a big step for him.

We have just had so much fun.

A Day in the Life – By Tamaryn"Babby"Pence

April 19th, 2010 — 11:16pm

Today’s guest blogger is Tamaryn,”Babby” Pence.

Today we tried the music class at Gymboree. The boys had a lot of fun but I feel that the active and movement one is more up there street cause the music class is kind of what we do already at our circle time.

Tomorrow we can do our normal class. So I will sign them up Tue and Fri for 9:30am classes.
The boys have been great today. No major issues at all. They had their normal breakfast (cream cheese waffle, half a banana, couple raisins and a couple dates) but with the agreement that tomorrow we will try those sausages in the deep freeze for something new. Lunch was two and a half chicken nuggets each, half a spinach pancake, half a cheese stick, a bowl of yoghurt and then they both drank milk out of a cup. Milo loved it and just could not get enough.

We played trucks for a bit then talked about the day, the weekend, the week, some animals and just general things. They chatted away and it was really great to hear. We then headed of to Muisc Gymboree, after that we went straight to Maple Leaf Park for just over an hour to play. The boys loved the big metal twirly slide and just kept going up but the rule was they had to boot scoot backwards or sit when going down. They got so dirty that I had to take their clothes off and wipe them down when we got home.

They have been great and just so energetic. Went to bed quickly and with little fuss.

Just Riding the Rails

April 19th, 2010 — 12:16am

The four of us went to the Ballard Sunday Market today. Fun for its usual apple samples, dogs to pet, and talented buskers to dance to… this time we discovered the (out of commission) train tracks! Complete with rocks (and the occasional beer can, but I don’t think they noticed); they loved it!

Levi Nose

April 14th, 2010 — 2:32am

Last night I put the boys to bed and told Levi a story about how much I love him. I told him “I love him more than all the other Mommies in the world love their babies.” I told him, “All of the love that all of the Mommies in all of history have for their babies fits in Mommy’s nose!” And he said “Nose”.

Tonight I put him to bed and asked him if he knows how much Mommy loves him. And he said… “Nose”.
