Three positive things, day fifty three

Tags: 

We had a pretty good Saturday.

The first positive thing was Kian running over to me and saying "Daddy, I have a neen na-neen!" - I have a green dragon. While we haven't been pushing him to learn colors, it's neat that he's picking them up on his own.

The second positive thing was getting a really great picture from #awesomewife of all three kids together, with all three of them smiling and not pulling silly faces :) I've set it up as my laptop's desktop pic and will probably see about framing it, it's that good!

The third positive thing was Kian having his first apple. Now, he's had apple chunks before, but this was the first time that he got to sit down and just chew into a full apple on his own. And oh my but did he enjoy it! I had to direct him on which parts to eat because he was working his way through the seeds in the middle, and he had a shower afterwards because he the apple juice got everywhere, but he now has a renewed interest in apples :)

Three positive things, day fifty two

Today was another 9/80 Friday off, so we got up to some fun.

The first positive thing was my #awesomewife deciding that we should take a trip East, starting with a rather nice "children's museum" (read: indoor playground with lots of themed ejumicashunol areas) in Dover, NH.

The second positive thing was going from the museum to the beach, via a small ice-cream stand. We ended up doing things somewhat in reverse - we weren't originally going to get in the water so didn't have the older kids change into their swimming gear, but because we were trying to keep the beach-time a little tight so we could get home for a bowling game, we decided to let them just get in the water with their clothes and then change into their swimming gear for the way home. I took care of Kian playing near the beach where the water was shallow, while #awesomewife kept an eye on the other two who went further out to where they could swim a bit. While we didn't say long - less than an hour total, we all had a great time.

The third positive thing was seeing our eldest absolutely pass out on the way home, and then once we got home he went straight to bed and slept through 'til morning. He was one tired kid and slept about eleven hour in total. It's not often that he sleeps that much, so it was good to see that he didn't try staying awake and just let himself sleep.

That was a pretty good Thursday.

The first positive thing was finishing my work week pretty well - I was a little concerned I wouldn't get to certain tasks, but I did in the end, so it'll make for a more relaxed weekend.

The second positive thing was my #awesomewife explaining that her trip to the grocery shopping with the kids (after a trip to the park with some friends) was made that more entertaining by our kids doing the "I'm Batman" / "I'm Groot" parts from the "How It Should have Ended" take on "Guardians of the Galaxy". Then at dinner time they started into it - Liam saying "I'm Batman" and Kian parrying with "I'm Groot" - they was hilarious! :-D

The third positive thing was the shock, and hilarity, discovering that one of our kittens scaled a curtain and went for a walk along the curtain rail - not something you expect to see every day ;-)

So that was another Wednesday.

The first positive thing was getting to our local monthly Drupal group again. We had a nice turnout today - seven attendees (might have been eight, only I forgot to tell someone).

The second positive thing was Kian picking up two Lego Duplo cows and saying "two cow"! Not "I have cows", specifically "two cows" :-) I thought that was pretty cool.

The third positive thing was... this is the fiftieth post in this series! Woohoo! Lets roll on to 100!

Three positive things, day forty nine

Tuesday is my ... Tuesday?

The first positive thing was starting to sit on an exercise ball instead of a chair to help with my posture. It went pretty well, except for when Kian went rolling off with it - I said something like "Kian, please put the ball back at my desk" to which he responded - "no, baby ball." :-D Well, I laughed anyway.

The second positive thing was Liam doing something around the kitchen counter - I forget what, that part doesn't matter. So he asked if we had Dunkin Donuts food, because he thought he smelled it. As he was standing right beside the garbage can his mom asked if that meant that the garbage smelled like Dunkin Donuts, to which I asked if that meant that Dunkin Donuts smelled like garbage? LOL. They laughed :)

The third positive thing was my weekly ukulele class, which is always a great time :)
