DIHOT pt 2b, halloween, and life.


I apologize for the crappy quality.. it was late-ish, and I took that with my phone, which I'm certain had baby drool on the camera lens. But, there it is. My guy, crawling across the room.

I'm so proud of him.

***************************

In Halloween news, it was a bust this year. We didn't trick-or-treat, because little M had a nasty stomach virus. I was up with him ALL night long the night before. Our neighbors found out we weren't trick-or-treating, and they brought over a bucket of candy for little M, though. So he didn't go without. :) That was so sweet.

Dylan also caught the stomach virus, which made its debut on Friday night... WHILE we were at a chinese restaurant. It was as horrifying as I'm sure you're imagining it.

I'm certain I will catch it too, although I don't usually catch the kids' ailments, since I'm around 24 germy kiddos every day (not even including my own). But this time? I was drenched from head to toe in Dylan vomit. So I don't know how I could NOT catch it. I'm not looking forward to it... I have a throwing-up phobia.

Oh, but back to Halloween. Little M and Dylan DID get to wear their costumes once this Halloween season, though. We went to little M's school carnival the weekend before Halloween, and they wore their Buzz (Dylan) and Woody (little M) costumes with pride. I'm not positive if we got any pictures, though.

In school (for little M and for me) news, everything's going well. Little M has gotten used to school and seems to be doing fairly well. Every time I drop him off, I can hear several little voices yelling "Michael's here! Hi, Michael!!" so that has to be a good sign, right? On Friday, he had a mishap where they were cleaning up their centers, and a kid threw a toy and hit him just near the eye. So he has a nice little shiner going on, but he's okay. I'm starting to really love his school and teachers. If he's having a hard time separating from me in the morning, they'll hug him and hold him til I'm gone. He tells me he loves school and his teachers. I can't ask for more than that for him.

My school... my kiddos are really blossoming. I do love the "little sponges" part of first grade.

**********
In "okay, that was weird" news... we had a series of earthquakes this weekend in Oklahoma. I didn't feel the ones in the wee hours of the morning on Saturday morning, but I TOTALLY felt the one Saturday night! It was kind of exciting, because I hadn't felt one that strong (5.6) before.

********
Since I have cleaned more puke than I ever care to see again in my life, I have obviously been missing out on some sleep. I can't wait to turn my clock back (right before I go to bed in a few seconds), lie down, and wake up---um, sometime. Hopefully late. Hopefully not to throw up. :( Ugh.

G'night.
