I survived 48 hours away from my precious Boogie Bear!
He was all decked out in his "Cars" pajamas that his granny got him!
They're 18M, but he fills them out perfectly. They're his first "big boy" pajamas!
Mom and Debbie have combined forces to outfit Caleb for Fall and Winter...
Tonight we get to go pick up his new big boy clothes!
Someone (who I will not name here) accidentally pinched Caleb's leg in the stroller strap this weekend in Tellico. I think this person cried over it more than he did! I was prepared when he was dropped off this morning that there would be a mark. When I went to change his clothes, I was expecting a pretty good sized bruise. Um, if I hadn't been looking for it I never would have seen it! Seriously, I know Caleb is going to get bumped and bruised. It's part of growing up and being a boy! I'm not going to freak out everytime he gets a scratch! For the record, I don't think I've ever heard of a child dying or having any long term health complications from getting pinched from the clips they have on every child toy out there. I'm pretty sure he's going to survive this one! And he's already forgotten about it...
I got to spend about thirty minutes with him and then Nana and Pappy stole him for the day so Daddy and I could work!
This poor child will be so absolutely spoiled by the time he goes back to day care tomorrow!
Speaking of day care, Ryan and I made the decision to change providers. I believe a lot of little things that lead to this decision were signs from God that it was time for a change. I do believe Caleb will continue to be in a very loved environment, but he will now have more children his own age to play with and learn from. I feel like this will be a great opportunity for Caleb to learn, play, and grow and it will us to keep our work schedule.
As I'm sitting here in my super comfy (and much appreciated) recliner, I realize just how thankful I am to be home! I despise traveling for long periods of time....It feels so good for things to return to normal now. We had such a great time with my stepbabies being here and we wish we had more time to spend with them, but it will be so nice to get my house back in order! After I get rested from this past weekend, I'm going to begin my Fall Deep Cleaning Week! I'm really looking forward to organizing, cleaning, and preparing for the season change!
As I tackle this new project, I will give advice, post pictures, and provide checklists that may inspire you to do the same! Once you get on a good running system, things naturally stay nice. Since my household has been flipped upside down for the last couple of weeks, this will be a pefect time to show one of the things I love to do! Please feel sorry for my dear hubby as I uproot his place on the couch for the next couple of weeks. I have some honey-do things that need to be done while I'm at it!
