That'll teach me

This morning I caved and let him feed himself. I know what you're thinking "He's 15 months old, give the kid a spoon!" True. But if I can feed him and thus make sure he eats it all and control the mess (a little) then I'm going to! But after a week of morning tantrums where I played dumb pretending this wasn't an "I DO MYSEFF!" tantrum I finally gave in. Surprisingly he still ate almost all of it. There was also a bit of a mess.

My Mother's day present arrived today. It's a Buddhist/Yogi prayer Om Mani Padme Hum meaning "Hail to the jewel of the lotus." In other words, we must look within ourselves to find the peace of the Buddha. This is something I should remind myself of so it's good to keep it close by.

This afternoon Jack and I were playing outside on the lawn. We climbed up on the deck for me to grab something. I turned my head for a second to check some of the potted plants and heard "Splash!" Jack had decided to play in the pool and forgo a swimsuit. Outfit change #1

We re-suited-up and went to Michael's to get crafty. Well I picked him up out of the cart at the end of our little trip and realized he was completely soaked. Outfit change #2

This is why I often am thankful that Jillian has so many clothes. And have no fear that she will wear all of them!

some days just involve one outfit...others 3 or 4...especially those days spent in the sandbox!!!
Lovely mother's day present...did you select it or did Matt do it on his own? I still haven't gotten a mom's day present...because he 'hasn't had time.' poop.
