So it's been um....FOREVER since my last blog. Here's what you missed:
I have a new nephew! My brother and his wife just had their first little boy, Logan John, who is (apart from my own) the CUTEST little baby in the world. He has a full head of thick black hair! He is such a little peanut and I miss him terribly.
Cody started preschool yesterday! As I suspected, I struggled with this transition wayyy more than he did. I was telling a friend that I had chest pains driving out of the parking lot...literally. I think I was having a panic attack. Most people tell me I'll be fine and that it'll be good to have some time alone with Tyler, my youngest. That's how it goes in my own head too. But my heart! Everything inside me was screaming! I've never left him alone ANYWHERE other than at my house with a babysitter! He has two teachers to a class of about 12 kids, but still, 4 eyes can only watch so much at one time! :) No, Miss Sara and Miss Katherine seem lovely and judging by the grin on his face at the end of his time there, he was a VERY happy little boy. It would've been nice if he'd cried...just a little...to let me know he would miss me. Oh well...can't have your cake and eat it too.
Tyler is a big bully. I swear. My youngest child is a little devil! I felt so bad for Cody (who pound for pound could do some serious damage to his little brother) the other day. Cody had just built a beautiful train track in his play area and was playing contentedly (and quietly!) when his little brother came in and proceeded to tear up the entire track! I could hear him saying, "NO, TY, NOOOO!" from the kitchen. Cody has been warned that if he ever lays a FINGER on Tyler other than for a hug he will be in big trouble, so "NO, TY, NOOOO!" has been his battle cry whenever little brother gets too close for comfort. I came in to find Cody almost in tears and Tyler looking MORE than satisfied with himself. Tyler got put in his pack and play in the other room while I helped salvage what was left of Cody's track. I explained to Cody that his brother doesn't understand that he worked hard to make his track, even though I wasn't entirely convinced of that myself. :)
