Another good, yet challenging day!

The next few posts are posts that I started during November and December, but never finalized. You know how it goes: 2 1/2 yr old, 1 yr old, trying to keep up the house, let alone keep up the blog. So at this moment I have a chance to "finalize" my drafts from earlier!!

I emailed mom last night to see if she wanted to go to the mall with us today (Fri). She said yes.

So she came over here about 10:30am today and we went to the mall.

When we got there, we noticed the Christmas band starting to play. It looked like the Salvation Army people were going to be speaking at a particular time. I don't know for sure, but that's what it looked like.

I wanted Joshua to have a good time so he rode the rides that are in the middle of the mall. A motorcycle, a Ninja Turtle doodad, a helicopter, and a car. And a boat. Then we walked down to Books-A-Million where they have that nifty little kids section with the Thomas the Tank Engine railroad to play with in the middle of the store.

Oh man. He was having a BALL! Then daddy came in the store after he called me and found out where we were. He was on lunch so he wanted to see his little boys.

After a while though, we had to leave and that was NOT a popular idea with Josh. Daddy had to be the bad guy and get him out of the store.

So we all left, daddy went back to work and we went to IHOP. I don't know why I thought it was going to be easy.

I had Joshua who didn't want to sit down. Here's the conversation:

Me: Ok, baby, sit down in your big boy seat.
Josh: *Sits down.
Josh: *Gets out.
Me: Josh, sit in your seat.
Josh: Cain't get in.
Me: Yes you can.
Josh: Cain't get in. Stuck.
Me: Why?
Josh: Cain't get in.
Josh: *goes over to the window at the end of the booth.
Me: Josh, get in your seat.

And so on..............

Overall, it was a good day, but boy was it challenging................... When Josh "cain't" do something.
