It’s Monday? Where’d the weekend go?


I’ll tell you where it went…..to pieces. It was picked up by a tornado called “My Parents” and tossed around like a rag doll. I’ll try to lay some of the scraps out for you. I was able to rescue a few moments with things you should be aware of.

Friday night: I was playing Peekaboo with a STRANGER while waiting in line at a department store my mommy and daddy took me too.

BE AWARE: I play games and interact with the human race.

FRIDAY

Saturday: That was a pretty big day for me. It was our Fall Festival parade and I was on a float for Special Olympics. I’m in the back sitting on mommy’s lap.

BE AWARE: I’m an athlete.

I’ll be a Young Athlete for Special Olympics until I’m eight-years-old. Then…..I can compete in stuff.

LOOK! We have a big torch and everything.

Float

I didn’t think we should throw candy without testing it first.

BE AWARE: I care about public safety.

Lollipop

BE AWARE: I learn stuff.

Sunday: Mommy drew a circle on the left. She did okay, but a little messy.

My circle is on the right. I think mine is just as good. I even added some extra stuff just because.

SUNDAY

Today (PreK/Day 21): Here I am this morning, checking the safety of the tunnel before my train goes through.

BE AWARE: I can get away with not wearing a shirt.

Day 20 Train

Now…..I am getting ready for school. I was pretty late (1.5 hours).

Someone, this friend I know…….Yeah that’s it, woke me up a few times during the night. They made me jump around, throw stuff out of my crib and kick the rails. This happened a few times. Mommy let me sleep in.

BE AWARE: I try to figure things out for myself, like putting on my “special shoes”. OR….Playing with the Velcro straps because it’s cool to do that.

Day 20 Shoe

Not getting your way stinks! (PreK Day: 20)


I seriously didn’t wanna get out of bed today.

And I sure didn’t wanna go anywhere.

Mommy and Daddy made me go to school.

Day 20 Me and Cat

But…..Some really cool old dude came to my school and brought footballs. He had us practice throwing, catching and kicking. I caught the ball a lot, but I was grumpy, so I spent a lot of time hugging all the lady workers.

I’m no fool. (Just a regular dude.)

But…..I was still pretty grumpy when I got home. I just wanted to get on my tractor and be alone. Mommy wouldn’t let me drive it in the rain or off the porch steps.

Guys do dangerous stuff! I have guy urges.

I let her know what I thought of her decision.

 

 

 

Afterschool: Doing Dude Stuff. (Day 19)


Just like a regular dude:

I hang with my bro and play video games.

No cutesy comments from mommy today either. NO GIRLS ALLOWED!

Just like a regular dude……..I agree with brothers before mothers.

Or something like that. Bro Collage

I’m not an elephant.


No post yesterday. I forgot.

Hey….Poop happens. I can’t remember everything.

I love elephants and they clearly love apple stuff like me, but I am not a memory magician. Okay. It was really my mommy’s fault, but I have to protect her. You know….because she’s my mommy.

Elephant

So….Besides making you aware of me not being an elephant. Here’s something else you might not know. I don’t always wake up amazing looking or feeling. I know…I know….it’s hard to believe.

BUT……Just like a regular dude:

I sometimes need a little time to get myself together.

And…..Just like a regular dude, I sometimes put my hands places they don’t need to be, especially when others are in the room, watching and worse….taking pictures.

Despite the……

Be Aware: I’m a regular dude (PreK Day:16)


Just like a regular dude:

I like to rock out on instruments.

And……Just like a regular dude, I think I sound better than I really do.

Day 16 with Snake 015

Just like a regular dude:

I sometimes play with tools.

And…….Just like a regular dude, I sometimes put my fingers where they don’t belong.

Day 16 with Snake 007

I’m self-sufficient. (PreK: Day 15)


Mommy took this picture of me after I got home from school today. It was a half day, which for me meant only two hours. That was a good thing since I had to talk to my associate.

“Mom. I told you not to eavesdrop on my meetings with my consigliere.

There are some things…..you can’t unhear.”

Day 15

BE AWARE:

I can get what I need.

See me at the big black thingie?

Self-Sufficient

Look at how effortlessly I opened it with my tiny little fingers.

Oct2-2

See how focused I am? I’m bending down and reaching for what I want.

Oct2-3

Tortilla chips. My favorite.

Oct2-5

Now you know how I get to this happy place.

I know where the snacks are kept.

I won’t starve.

Oct2-6

Grandparent’s Day: (PreK Day 13)


TODAY was Grandparent’s Day at my school. All the old folks got to come in this morning and eat breakfast with us and take pictures. I think it’s fun for them because they are retired and bored.

My “genetic” grandparents were all unavailable. I guess they have a busy retirement. I decided to adopt a grandma. Who says you can’t pick your family? Actually……A lot of people say that, but I did, because I’m awesome.

Mommy! Look! I’m pretending to be you when you were on those angry-loopy pills.

“I am a mommy zombie. I will destroy you.”

Okay. Make sure I don’t fall. I know how to call social services.

13-1

Daddy. You can let go now.

We’ve been doing this for a few weeks now.

Daddy

I guess mommy and daddy hung around since they had me in their 40’s. They could pass as grandparents.

And what is this? I get a lousy banana peel.

13-2

Um….Tastes like……

13-3

Well, it doesn’t taste like chicken.

I’m hiding it in this cup.

13-4

My adopted grandma gave me money.

Hmmm……It looks like the real thing.

13-5

 Let me find some ladies so I can flash my money around.

13-6

Wait. Concentrate.

What did daddy tell me about wasting money on the ladies? 

Get a haircut so you don’t look like Eddie Munster?

No. That’s not it, but that’s a good idea. Oh yeah……Don’t!

13-7

Grandma. I’m going to use the money to show you a magic trick instead.

Okay. Now you see it and now you don’t.

13-8

Pretty impressive right?

I bet you wanna know how I did that trick.

13-9

(“Daddy better pick that up before they figure me out.”)

13-10

Grandma was so impressed, she’s letting me play before school starts.

13-11

So you think an introduction is in order?

Grandma. It’s not real. I think I’m safe from being stung.

13-12

Oh no! We’ve been discovered.

13-13

That mommy is everywhere grandma. I can’t get anything by her.

Is it in the mommy manual to look so serious when kids just wanna have fun?

13-14

Leading The Way: PreK (Day 12)


Okay daddy, we got this.

We don’t need mommy to make sure I get to school okay.

Follow me this way.

Day 12

Pick up the pace daddy. We don’t want to be late.

Day 12-2

You still there?

If I stop to look, it could really throw off my rhythm.

Day 12-3

Look! We’re almost to the playground.

That’s the first thing we do when I get to school.

Day 12-4

What? I didn’t know you and mommy talked to each other.

I guess I forgot we don’t play first.

Oops! My bad!

Day 12-5

Momma’s giving me da boot. (PreK: 10/11)


DAY: 10

Seriously…..Instead of talking to the hand, my mom is making me talk to the boot. She had surgery yesterday. It must have made her very tired because she is laying around and sleeping a lot. OR…..She’s really lazy.

Boot1

No pictures of me before school yesterday, but here I am trying to get my mommy to pay me some attention.

Boot2

DAY: 11

Daddy took me to school today. Here I am standing outside the joint.

I’m double dog daring him to make me go inside.

School Day 11

Okay….I’ll go, but first I’m pulling out the dance moves.

Gotta do something before I walk through the doors.
