Hooray! My 4 year old is still getting himself dressed (most) mornings and is HAPPY about it! I was congratulating him on his Big Boy behavior and he hugged me and said, "Thanks, Mom." Then, about 20 minutes later he came to me and said, "Mom? Thanks for saying to me that I am a big boy." How sweet is that?!
While combing my oldest daughter's hair this morning, my heart nearly stopped. I thought I saw a louse. Turns out it was just mulch. Visions of distress filled my head in the seconds between seeing the mulch and discovering that it was, in fact mulch. I cannot tell you how relieved I am. I usually find mulch annoying but today I love mulch.
A bat specialist is coming tomorrow to thoroughly inspect our house. I'll keep you posted.
