Thoughts On Thursday

My Mom went and bought Home Alone for Preston.  More accurately she searched all over to try to find it and finally did. 

I'd completely forgotten all about that movie.  I used to watch it all the time with my little sister and loved it.

Preston was no different.  He thought is was awesome and was totally into it.  He even asked to watch it again the next day!

Score for Grandma!

Preston is in the middle of a friendship triangle at preschool. 

He's still best friends with Cohen from last year, only now there is another little boy that they are friends with.

It's so cute to watch.

Except that three doesn't always work.  It's not that they don't all play together, it's just that Preston and Cohen have been friends longer and sometimes Aidan gets a little left out.  Or hurt feelings because the boys are already so close.  Add in that at four and five the boys aren't perfect at expressing themselves (at least I know Preston isn't) and sometimes it's a recipe for disaster.  We're working on this with Preston! 

I talked to Preston about inviting Aidan over to play and hew as all for it and so excited, so I'm hoping that if he gets to play with Aidan outside of school it'll help the triangle in school.

Preston had croup.  And still has the cold from it.  Or at least the cough.  It's been fun.

You know what isn't awesome?  Getting woken up repeatedly throughout the night when you are so exhausted anyways because you are in the middle of the first trimester and all you want to do is sleep all day anyways!

Luckily after only one night and one morning of the bad cough, I took him in and they diagnosed croup and gave him a steroid to help!

And help it did.  He slept so much better even that first night.

---------------

Croup meant that I ran out to get Preston a humidifier for his room. 

Who knew there were so many options.  We've actually had two humidifiers since having Preston, one broke and I'm not sure what happened to the other one.  Odd.  This time we got Freddy the Frog.  Here's hoping he lasts longer than those before him.

Plus Preston loves Freddy.  And he's green.

---------------

My house is a mess.  I'm not even sure if mess is the right word.  I think what's happening here is worse than that. 

I just haven't had the energy to keep up with all of it.  Not to mention the nausea. 

So between Brad trying to help after work and me trying to get things done when I don't feel like sleeping or throwing up, it's not all getting done. 

You really don't realize how much you get done when you feel up to par!  Or in Brad's case how much gets done behind the scenes!  Poor guy didn't realize that do a full load of dishes every single day.  Or that the little messes add up!  I'm strangely looking forward to getting back to taking care of my house!

----------------

We've put Preston on a new schedule.  We're on day two and it seems to be working much better.  For everyone involved.

Especially since Brad has been doing bedtime a lot more than I have these days.  As in most nights.  So bedtime had kind of become a disaster.  Now it seems to be getting back on track.  Preston is going to bed at the time that he used to with a schedule again.  And I wrote out a schedule for Brad and he has it programmed into his phone with alarms so he knows the whens and whats.  Here's to life getting back slowly but surely.

---------------

I am so behind on Christmas this year.  Usually by this point I am almost done.  This year I have barely started.  Time to get on it!
