Thanks for your validation.? I’m all about the validation.? At some point I like to hear I’m actually doing the right thing.
I let the boy sleep.? By my estimation he fell asleep around 11:40.? I went down to his room periodically and he was out like a light.? I went down at 1:25 and he was finally up.? He repeatedly told me that he didn’t have to take a nap again.? I confirmed this and he was happy.
I didn’t have lunch ready for him because it is one of the choices he gets to make in the day.? I always ask what he wants for lunch.? Yesterday it was Mac n’ Cheese.? Of course this was after I scared the shit out of him by suggesting that he needed to go to the dentist and actually calling to make the appointment.? Poor kid was shaking he was scared so bad.? Fortunately we have 15 days to prepare for it (thanks Auntie G for the dentist book, that will come in handy).
The rest of the day went really well.? We made cookies, which may or may not have made me sick.? (I think it was the raw cookie dough) That was fun.
And for the record it took approximately 10 minutes of playing outside last night before the child freaked out about fireworks.? It’s going to be a long rest of the week.
