We went and walked around Balboa a few days ago with my grandparents, the boys loved looking at all the sailboats. Jude, after a few minutes tried to climb over the wall a few times. He sure is an adventurous one. He definitely is our little Jude Everest!
My mom sent us an incredible care package for Valentines Day. The most amazing chocolate covered strawberries I’ve ever had! Thanks Gigi! Those hit the spot!
The boys and their silliness. Finn is always such a crack up! Someone found Dad’s swim cap. Made it through another rite of passage of motherhood yesterday- Finn had his first real public tantrum. We were at Fashion Island yesterday and I was picking up a baby gift for a shower tomorrow and Finn found some car pajamas that he wanted. I said No, and I guess he really, really wanted them because he fell to the floor and screamed.. and I just walked out of the store with Jude. He popped up running after me. He turned it around after we left the store, luckily his tantrums never last longer than 2 minutes. Later at the fountains I discovered tucked in his stroller another pair of pajamas. Haven’t quite explained the concept of ‘buying’ and not just taking, because we had to go back and return some shark pajamas that were still on their hanger unpaid for. I probably should have turned it into a teaching moment, but emotionally I wasn’t really up for it. So I just snuck them back to the lady while Finn was talking to Jude, on the way back he was telling me how excited he was about his shark pajamas that he took. Then I explained I took them back because we didn’t pay for them. He just looked out the window and didn’t say much more the rest of the way home!
No worries here though, lately when things look down…I just pull out these babies! Red Jack Purcell’s does it get much happier than that!
