This fall is kicking our tushies, you guys. Daddy has *one more* semester of school left before he completes his third Master’s, and we’re hoping that once that is done our schedule feels a little easier… but realistically, when Daddy is finished Mommy will be heading back to school, so it will just be a new flavor of hectic…
On Sunday afternoon, Daddy took me and Cole out for a while so Mommy could have some peace and quiet. She did some lesson planning, and laundry, and reveled in the silence.
I am very good at putt putt.
That’s where the ball went.
Show this picture to Dr. Andy and THEN tell me who’s a pinhead.
We had such a great day!
Aardvarks. I believe I am doing the funky chicken here.I drew all over my pretty yellow shirt with black, permanent marker. Mommy gave up on the day, handed me the ipad and laid down next to me for a little while.
Mommy sent this out into the world on Monday afternoon. It was VERY Monday.
Cole and I were both fast asleep at 8:45 on Tuesday morning, which is when we usually leave for school; since we seemed super tired and Tuesdays are a short day anyway (and since Mommy knew we had a full week ahead of us), we just stayed home. We got up a short while later and snuggled on the couch for a little while.
Mommy went to the bathroom for 30 seconds.
Thursday was kind of awesome; Cole and Coach carved a pumpkin.
We saw a gorgeous rainbow.
And we went to the circus!
None of us are huge fans of morning time.
I went to school with Mommy for a meeting; clearly, I was very helpful with her note-taking.
Friday was Cole’s last swimming lesson of the session.
Mommy and Daddy went on Date Night (local friends: Stir Crazy is running an AWESOME promotion: 2 apps + 2 entrees + a shared dessert + movie tickets = $35), and came home to both of us sleeping.
Daddy was away for the weekend, so Mommy took Cole and I to Boo at the Zoo solo. She and Cole had a super cool shadow.
I got to ride in the stroller.
Cole would like to make it clear that he is not going to be Batman for Halloween; his costume is not quite done, and Mommy didn’t want mine to get messed up at the zoo, so we just wore playtime dress up costumes instead. He also wants it know that he is NOT Batman. He is just “a kid in a costume.” Just to clear that up.
We shared lunch in the Dancing Crane Cafe.
And hit up Madagascar for a bit before heading home.
Cole told me all about the animals – he was cracking up the people around us. He explained to me that when animals hide that’s called camouflage, and also snakes smell with their tongues.
We ended the day with dinner at Grammy Boo and Coach’s house. Mommy does not have an “after” picture to share, but trust me: I really enjoyed that cupcake.
Mommy kind of felt like a Rock Star on Saturday; we were cooperative and charming and Good Listeners all day, and we went on a fun adventure together. Then, on Sunday, it was back to chaos in our household when the alarm didn’t go off and she dropped us off at Coach and Grammy Boo’s house still in our jammies and raced off to work. Oh, well.
