    Ethan's Hand vs the Car Door

    I am literally still sick to my stomach. I was hustling the kids to gymnastics this afternoon and didn’t think twice when I locked the car door and slammed the door shut. It didn’t catch all the way and I leaned forward to give it a shove when I realized Ethan’s hand was in the door. Shit! I lifted the handle and pulled, the door didn’t open. Ethan started wailing. Shit! I hit the unlock button and pulled again, hard enough that the door handle came off in my hand and I stumbled backwards. Shit, shit, shit! At gymnastics between classes a teacher is assigned to the door to greet…

    Kids Gym 1

    Last week Emerson moved up to her new class which means that she is all by herself and mommy gets to sit on the bleachers and that Ethan and Emerson are back on the same day same time for class which is NICE!! It also means that I get to take some pictures of the kids. Emerson is the little girl in the purple. She refused to wear her leotard I think she wanted pants and a shirt so she cold be like the little girl she is standing directly behind. Emerson is really enamored with that little girl she follows her lead everywhere good or bad. Here are some…

    Silver

    Since football is over Ethan finally got to move up and theĀ  best part of all – he gets to be in Coach Tommy’s class. He has wanted to be in Tommy’s class since he started at ASI in August 09. For the longest time he blamed me for not letting him be in his class, in actuality he wasn’t old enough yet. He had to be 5. When Ethan turned 5 and moved to bronze he was a little disappointed because it turned out that Tommy didn’t teach them. After class, Tommy told me that Ethan will probably move up quickly again. He would have been in Bronze for…

    Movin on up

    Last week Ethan moved up from Kids Gym 2 to Boys Bronze. They wanted him to move to Silver but after watching class last Wednesday I’m really glad that our schedule prevented that from happening. Looking over his skills list I think he pretty much has all of his trampoline skills down and most of floor skills. He will now also be doing parallel bars, rings, vaulting, and I think there is something else. He said the class was hard, lol, and I would have to agree. He has a really strong trunk and I think pretty soon he’ll have an upper body to match. I, sadly, forgot my camera…

    Lots has been going on

    and I have really been slacking off on posting. So lets hit some bullet points Emerson is starting to potty train. We are putting her in panties at the house and she is doing really well. A couple of days ago she woke up rushed to the bathroom and poopied in it!! Yay for her! We still put her in a diaper when leaving the house and at bedtime/naptime but she gets really upset if she potties in her diaper, it is so sad. I can’t believe she is doing so well at 2 years old when Ethan didn’t start until much later. Ethan is reading his first chapter book,…

    Wow, it has been quite awhile

    Not too much has happened around here. We are making an adjustment to homeschooling Monkey, he loves it. I thought he would resist but not yet. My only concern for him is that I worry he is too smart. I’m not even sure if that is a legitimate worry and as far as parenting worries can go I’ll gladly take that one. I guess really my concern lies with the decision that we will make in two years as to whether to continue homeschooling or to put him in public school. If he gets too far ahead he will be miserable but on the other hand I don’t want to…
