Dominic, age 2 years: His sleeping habits have left much to be desired as of oh I don't know, the past six months? Am I exaggerating? You decide. So we have been forgoing the whole afternoon nap situation in hopes that he may sleep better at night and our success rate is at a 50/50 it would seem. Is it worth it? Who knows! He spent about a half hour torturing Matt and I late Saturday night with whining and many refrains of daddy, daddy... but then he slept until 8:30 a.m. which he's never done in all his days. He still woke up on the wrong side of the crib it would seem though.

David, age 4 years: This shirt was a gift from my brother and his wife and David is in love with it. By the time I had finished my morning coffee yesterday I had seen his trex oh I don't know, about a hundred thousand times. Direct quote from my son, also one to never exaggerate. The front of the shirt says ask me about my trex, if this image doesn't make any sense to you. Any excuse to show off his belly is what I really think he enjoys the most. And his pecs.

Letty, age 6 years: Sunday this little miss had another birthday party with a friend from school. It's supposed to be a drop off but since I don't know the family I'm staying because I am a helicopter mom. Paranoid mom. Whatever. Anyways I'm sure they are wonderful people but I'll be there. It's pretty much Letty's dream party because it's a dress up party and she is supposed to come as a princess and well she wants to be Princess Elena of Avalor. We had to google ourselves a hair tutorial and all. If she had her way she would have been in costume all day but I convinced her to save the dress for the actual party...

  2. That Letty! She's a beauty! Tori's bday party was a drop off party and only one mom stayed lol. I actually did judge her a bit because I know her well, and her daughter knows me and Tori well/ but this woman doesn't let her child breathe lol I think her daughter could have flat out said mom I'm fine and want you to leave and she wouldn't lol.

  3. Oh dom! I hope he figures out his sleep issues for you real soon!! David is such a ham. Love it! Did any other parents stay for the bday party? I would've felt the same way!

  4. oh i love this SO much!!! you totally captured the kiddos in each of their moods, it seems!!! poor dom. i seriously hate when things seem so hard for them! and of course, it's hard for everyone! and ha!!! david... maybe it's an age thing, but m will flip her dress all the way up like that thinking it's hilarious! and letty, can i have your social life, please? ;) helicopter moms for LIFE ps. always. and. forever.
