Silas wins the award for the Little Toewsie with the most hair. Compared to his older siblings, he's doing quite well in the follicle department. Most days it sticks straight up in the back - I try to wet it down but it persists in standing. I don't feel ready to cut it yet.
I decided to have some fun with it instead.
Because I'm such an indoor girl and because we don't have a backyard to speak of, I really have to be intentional about getting these kids outside. With the rainy days and the early sunset it's pretty rare. But, hey, I'm trying.
Last week, one of the playgroup moms brought several huge boxes of dollar store items. She said she needed to get rid of it and proceeded to fill up bags of junk - I mean treasures - for the kids. Micah's favourite item has turned out to be this little crocodile guy he's wearing on his wrist. I told him that I was pretty sure it was a hair scrunchy, but he has decided it's a bracelet and has been referring to it as his "scrumpy". He wore it all week, everywhere he went - even to sleep and to preschool. Until it lost both of it's eyes. Now it sits on the counter awaiting eye repair.
This might look like our first snowfall, but it was actually a crazy hail storm we had last week. We rarely get thunder and lightning here (something I really miss about the prairies!) but we got a storm the other day. The kids aren't used to hearing thunder and Keziah was especially afraid - in a cute, clingy kind of way :)
Tomorrow is Keziah's birthday party. Her actual birthday is on Sunday. I didn't think she was "old enough" to be too excited to sleep the night before her party, but she was wide awake until about 9:30 tonight. And I don't know what the fetish was, but she was wearing a different pair of pyjamas every time I went to check on her...
Hopefully she has a good nap tomorrow before the party :)
