Convo between the 4 and 3 y.o.

Both seated on the bottom of the stairs.
S: Logs, this the right way?  (Putting her socks on)
L:  Sawah, I don't think it's right.  Get me a glue stick.
S:  A blue stick?
L:  No, a glue stick.
S:  Oh!  I can't find one.
L:  Ok.
I wonder if he's figured out that she hasn't actually gone to look for the glue stick.
*****

I've also figured out that S is quite cunning.
Me:  Sarah, bring this down to Poh Poh.
She walks to the top of the stairs, looks down and summons her brother.
S:  Logs, come here.
L:  Yah?
S:  Give this to Poh Poh.
L:  Ok.
Funnily enough, they don't always get along.  So I'm quite amused that he would even listen to her.
*****

Favourite bedtime routine between them.  They bunk in the same room.
S:  Good night, Logi.  I love you.
L:  Grrr…
S:  I said good night, Logi.  I love you.
L:  No.
S:  Mom, he said no.
Me:  Logan….
L:  Ok.  thank you.  Grumble grumble.  I love you too (mumble mumble)
S:  He didn't say good night.

Year end Teacher gift

This year I helped purchase the year end teachers gift for our kindergarten class. One teacher, one teacher assistant and something for the rest of the staff. Being a lazy soul, I always opt to give a gift cert/card.

Luckily at the beginning of the year, I had sent a "get to know your teacher questionnaire". So I knew which gift card they would want.

Teacher likes Gardenworks. Assistant likes Chapters. Unfortunately for this lazy soul, since its to be given from "all of us", I thought that a bit more effort was needed than "Thanks yo. It's been swell. Here's a gift card."

So teacher gets a pair of yard gloves, a garden gnome with the Gardenworks & Starbucks cards inside a pot.

Assistant gets the Chapters and Starbucks cards in a tumbler.

Staff gets a Tassimo coffee brewing system.

And for kid #1's teachers: something super fun. Beach towel, gummy bears, Archie comics and some nail polish so that they can have a fantastic summer!

Logan-ism

He does this when he "checks" out the guys. As in I'm watching you. And the guys - usually Hailey's classmates' parents or grandparents.

Help me now.

Sarah-ism

Sarah walks in on me (mid pee), gasps with eyes wide open and says "you did it, mom. High five. You want sticker?"

So this is what I look like.

And potty training continues...
