The boys were absolutely driving me nuts this morning. It was a bad combo of them being wild and crazy and me. Guess I woke on the wrong side of the bed. So I thought maybe getting out of the house would help. There were some things I needed anyway. So off to Walmart we went. I wish I could say "off to Target we went." But there is none close enough for a quick trip. Anyway...as soon as we got in the store Dylan started whining because he wanted to ride in the cart or he wanted to ride ON the cart, or he wanted to push the cart. Ugh. I managed to look at everything I had on my list, but it as not easy. Dylan was all over the place. It was me constantly saying something along the lines of "don't touch that" or "stay close." He doesn't normally act like that at a store. So I guess it was my fault for even thinking that getting out of the house would help. Ethan whined off and on too, which didn't help my nerves.
Ethan is still waking very early. Earlier than I want him to. There is no reason for him to be up before 7. Really, there isn't. It just makes the days that much longer. Right now he goes to bed at 8pm, and gets up between 6 and 6:30. I don't let him take his morning nap anymore. So he doesn't go down for his nap until 1 but usually falls asleep between 1:30 and 2. He sleeps until 4. So he usually naps for 2-3 hours a day and that's it. I don't know. Maybe not having that nap will catch up to him eventually and he will re-schedule himself.
2 days ago Ryan cut Ethan's hair for the first time. I saved some of it! It took Ryan only about 5 minutes to do it, and there was NO crying or fussing on Ethan's part at all. Ryan said he seemed to like it. I think he looks a little older with his hair so short. So no more curly hair when its humid. No more bed head in the mornings. He really did need a haircut though. If he would've gone much longer people would be calling him a girl out in public! Both boys look so cute with fresh haircuts. Dylan will be the next to get a haircut. And I am curious to see how fast Ethan's hair grows. Dylan's tends to grow kind of fast.
Lets see....what else...Oh! I had a short dream about vacation. Thankfully it didn't last long and the worry in the dream must have woke me up. The dream started with us getting into the car leaving. I dreamt that we got clear to Virginia before I realized that I forgot the boys' bears that they sleep with. I left Ethan's paci in his bed, and his blanket. I also forgot everything that I had gathered on the dining room table that was supposed to go with us. Things like the kitchen stuff, baby gate, stroller, pool floats, ect. The only thing that made it into the car was our clothes, and a small cooler with drinks in it. Then I woke up. Stupid dreams! It felt so real though! I couldn't imagine actually forgetting all of that stuff though. Weird!
