Let the sugar coma commence

I had one very excited 5yo today.
He got to experience Halloween in Kindergarten style.
Meaning he was allowed to wear his costume to school (side note: I came home early & he was still in it).

Can you tell he was ready?
Of course, he had to try out a few moves



Of coures, these moves result in this:

I let him have 4 pieces, 2 before dinner, 2 after.
Now he's going to have to earn the treats by behaving himself.
Wish him luck.

He's upstairs in his stuper sleeping off his sugar high.

Happy Halloween!!!

Can you tell me...

What machine causes the great smell that these students are sniffing from the paper?

I'll give you a hint...if you are a child of the 70's or at least a student in the 70's you may have been asked by your teacher to take the paper to the office & use the....


What?
Do you know?

The Horror! The Horror!

I've done the unthinkable.
I've done the inexcusable.
I've done the #1 thing Mommies shouldn't do.

I threw a piece of Cheeks art away.
&
I got caught!

I know!
I KNOW!

Unexcusable.

It had to be done though.
The art work is taking over the wall in the kitchen.

I figured he wouldn't notice.

Was I wrong!!!

All of a sudden from the kitchen I hear "MOOOOOOOOOOOOM!"

Then he comes in the living room, holding the paper plate art work, & says "Hey, you threw my Earth away! You can't throw it away."
His lip was 2 inches from the floor.

Apparently, I didn't push it down far enough in the trash can.

I apologized profusely & hung it up on the wall.

Well til he wasn't looking then I buried it in the bottom of the trash can.

Have you ever got caught doing something with one of your kids prized possessions?

Tuesday Tidbits

How in the world is it Oct 4 already?
Wasn't it just yesterday I was posting pictures from the pool?

The Nana used to tell me that time just went quicker the older you got.
Then it got worse when you had children.
 She was right.
I don't know where the last 5 years have gone in Cheeks life.
How is he 5 already?

He had his well child check up.
 45 1/2" 50lbs.
The child's ribs show, he's so skinny.
He's also in the 90th percentile.
Go figure.
You start out at 11lbs, guess you're gonna be a big one your whole life.

The great thing was his pediatrician finally listened to me.
He has agreed to take a look at Cheeks evaluation with the Child Study team & take it from there.
So that is good news. Guess when I let the dr know Cheeks is at the principal everyday & he's only at school for 2.5hrs, it raised a red flag.

Keep your fingers crossed.

Now to get the older one straightened out.
Oy ve', I am going to be totally gray by summer 2012.

On a lighter note, wanna see how we keep ourselves entertained during our lunch hour.

Viola!

Colored that myself.
Quite the artist aren't I?
I know, I know, I am a Picasso in the making.

What do you all do to de-stress at work?

I'm Falling for Fall



It's October 1st.
Fall has finally appeared in Jersey.

The weather is cool.
The sun is shining.
Mother Nature has given me the ok to officially break out the fall/Halloween decor.
Love it!

What signifies fall for you?
I love this little diddy up there, by Moose A. Moose.
I'm a big fan of his.
