I snuck a few photos of Sean sitting with Blankie. I never expected him to be so attached to it at almost five years old. I know sweet moments like this will soon slip away so I wanted to capture them.
I cannot tell a lie, or can I?
There was also a lot of time spent wrestling. You should not be surprised, I have three boys. That is what they do. Eat. Sleep. Poop. Wrestle. It just comes naturally to them. We moved the new coffee table out of the way and put a mattress in the living room on the floor. The boys loved watching TV on it, and, of course, holding wrestling matches!
Part of the reason that the mattress was in the living room is because of the set-up in one of the bedrooms. I forgot to mention that I share a room with Justin. He is in a pack-n-play and all was well the first night until he woke up at 2:00 am and started playing. He noticed me and began to grunt and yell Mom at me. I tried to hide under the blankets and keep still. To no avail. I had to get up, tuck him back in and leave the room - this was at 4:20 am. The next day I racked my brain and came up with the following room divider.
Yes, I took the mattress off and moved it to the living room. I stood the box spring up as a divider and put the pack-n-play in the center of the frame. And just to be safe I put pillows around the metal frame. I still didn't sleep quite like a baby, but the rest of the nights were much better! Maybe I should write to a parenting magazine about my idea!
