We had a great weekend! Friday, we took W for a haircut. I was nervous because the first one did NOT go well. Half the salon was helping us distract W. But this time, we discovered the bowl of Dum Dum suckers. And W sat through the haircut with his sucker – no problem at all. Sidenote: I used to be that mom who insisted on no sugar, no juice, organic food, etc. I’ve relaxed quite a bit. We have to choose our battles (especially with a child who is super picky). I’m not saying W gets sugar every day, but every now and then, he gets a treat.
Saturday, we went to a cookout that one of A’s colleagues was hosting. The lady had a large backyard and swing set. W had an absolute blast going down the slide several times. AND he slept through the night – over 10 hours. It was awesome. His sleep has been awful for the past month and we all needed a good night.
Sunday was Father’s Day. We went to church and Starbucks. Then came home and A opened his gifts from W and I. After W’s nap, we went out for Mexican food and then made a trip to the park. A and I theorized that we had to totally exhaust W in order to get him to sleep through the night and what do you know, it worked again! I can’t even remember the last time W slept through the night 2 nights in a row.
It was a perfect weekend.
In other news, we continue to prepare for our move. So much paperwork along with appraisals, inspections, etc. We’ve got a lot going on. It looks like we have renters for our house so that’s good news!! Sickness still hasn’t left – it appears that A has a cold yet again. L I’ve been traveling for work. I leave again on Wednesday. Not at all happy about it. Suffices to say we’ve been incredibly busy, but things have been great (other than the sickness and work travel).
