I told my mom that connor loved puzzles and that one would be a good present for christmas. she got him a 750 piece garden painting. i'm not sure if we'll EVER actually get that thing completed! Connor did pretty good - better than I for sure - and Nancy was pretty much a wizard at it. But we still ended up needing the kitchen table after 3 days and had to put it away.
maybe we'll try again next year...
my youngest has spent some days looking like this:
last sunday and yesterday. random barfiness? virus that just hung on? who knows. poor kid though. Of course, yesterday morning after waking up at 5 a.m. and throwing up every 20 minutes for 5 hours he suddenly wanted a banana, milk, and a cookie; ate them all down, and was fine for the rest of the day.
kids are amazing.
