I have decided to do something a little different with the boys on Fridays. Fridays are my easiest day in terms of work load and school. So, I decided that since David doesn't have to be at preschool on Fridays, I would just keep him home, and we would do really fun things. Some days we might go have adventures, visit the zoo and discovery museum in Little Rock, go to the park, etc. Other days we might stick around home and create masterpieces, bake things to take to people, play outside, or some other really fun thing.
Yesterday was the first fun friday. We were lazy for awhile and watched cartoons and hung out. Then I asked David what he wanted to do all day. He thought for a few minutes and then said this:
"Mom, you know something? I really like school a lot, but sometimes I really miss Nathan. I want to play with him all day. Is that okay?"
THIS is the same kid that will torment the small child just enough to provoke Nathan to hit him and then come tell on him. I had such mixed emotions hearing this. On one side, I just got that warm, fuzzy feeling inside and was thinking, "You are such a little angel!" The other side of me was going, "What have you done with my child?" The warm, fuzzy side won out though. He is such a good kid. They both are. They have their moments, but overall, they are kind, sweet children (except when they spit in other kids' faces at the water fountain -- I will tell that story tomorrow!)
So, we had a lazy day and we just played all day. The boys were vikings, Larry boys, puppies, etc. You name it, they created it and played it. We ended up the night with a showing of VeggieTales Lord of the Beans and David and the Giant Pickle right before bed. What a fun Friday!
