Bed of roses
Jack is totally "two" right now. Our days are currently filled with thousands of questions, "What's this mommy? What's this?". There is also plenty of stalling. Particularly at bedtime. Sometimes when he is having a hard time winding down at bedtime we all lie in our big bed together, his father snores, and he and I talk about our day. This has now translated into him asking to "lay in the flowers" every night when we attempt to put him to bed. Our bed linens are always covered in flowers of all sorts (mostly roses) and I think it is so sweet that he calls our bed "the flowers."
However, the bossy part of being 2? Not so sweet. I will be happy if that passes quickly.
It's been raining cats and dogs today. It has given Jack a chance to wear that thrifted vintage Peanuts raincoat and watch the rain. He enjoys watching the rain, but the big thunder? Not so fun. When it first started this morning he was in his room playing with his train table and he came running down the hall faster than I have ever seen him run saying "I need the Dandy! I need the Dandy mommy!" I explained that it was thunder and that everything was ok. Now he says "just dunder, not scary," everytime it thunders.
I have another stinking sinus headache and am off to rest a bit. We are going to a big auction tonight and I need to be thinking clearly!
