In an attempt to have some quality bonding time with my preteen, um I mean toddler, I enrolled us in Mommy & Me classes at ASI Gymnastics. I don’t know what I was thinking.
Drake is 18 months old going on 13 years old. He is moody, grumpy, he thinks he knows it all, and has a major beef with authority. It’s an hour spent constantly re-directing him as he attempts to make a mad dash to the small trampolines. Once caught he looks at me with his signature “go to hell” look and we start the process all over again. By the end we’re both exhausted and irritable.
There are a couple things my little guy enjoys, yes only a couple. He LOVES the water! Pool, lake, bathtub it’s all good! I’ve been putting him in the tub a lot just to get things done, like get dressed. 😉
Drake also LOVES shoes! If you come over and leave your shoes by the door they’ll be snatched up quickly. Doesn’t his little feet look so cute in Ella’s shoes! He was so mad when he had to give them up. He puts my shoes on several times a day.
We’re well into fall baseball for both the boys. It takes up 2 nights a week an all day Saturday. Here’s Dylan. I should clarify. Jason takes them 2 nights a week and on Saturdays. Drake is such a grumpy ball of fire at the ballfield, I stay with him at home. It’s too exhausting running after him or trying to keep him happy in the bleachers. Thanks honey!
Here’s Davis. I’m not counting on any invites to the All Star team, but I think it’s a good experience for the boys. They’re really looking forward to basketball in the winter and I think that sport suits them a little better.
Where are you carpooling your kids to?
