What a Weekend!

It had to RAIN!

Gee--I am not ready for the rainy season...which is most of the year here!
The kids were bouncing off the walls! We even took them out and had a great time at Saffari Sams....but to no avail!

Yesterday--Makala was doing an "ART" project and left the scissors out---YES--Jeremiah did give himself a hair cut! Which is just fine--today is picture day!

Oh well at least I know this is normal. You should see the pictures of the Hair Cut Tori gave herself at 3 1/2! Right across the TOP!

Otherwise--things are holding steady. Jeremiah has been the handful and a half this past 10-days. He is really trying to be a sneaky stinker and doing a great job of it.

The only thing that WORRIES me so much is the 'Threats' he makes. I have never known such a young child to threaten the way he does. Makala does not do this yet Jeremiah has learned to say, "I am going to hurt mommy!" Really is freaky!

We are seeing too that Jeremiah is becoming aware of adoption. Yesterday daddy was talking to an old friend on the phone who is expecting his Surprise First Child. Daddy said something about "Adopting" and Jeremiah got up real close to listen. So interesting!

Makala was a 'sassy-pants' yesterday. Talking back and making that ugly noise and face when I asked her a question! By the end of the evening she ended up going to bed early because I had-had enough. I remember WANTING to say all the things she says to me to my parents....I also remember I would never DARE!

Anyway--that is about all today....just the run of the mill regular parenting stuff.
