Weekend Recap

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).
