I'm pretty girlly and having a girl to dress up with and have a tea party sounds like my cup of tea...
Then we wake up and either go play outside or Pauly wants to watch a movie and have a snack. After his nap, he is usually quite grumpy so I have to hold him a second and he decides what he wants to do... Usually he'll say Russell (which means Up) and I'll go to get that and he'll say Liming Naqueen (Lightening McQueen from Cars) and I'll grab that, then he'll switch back to Russell - this will go on forever if I don't just pick one and it OF COURSE is the WRONG one that he "doesn't" want and he gets upset and then once the previews come on he's cool. He is so grump after naps. While he does this I clean up and start dinner. Usually William is in his bouncy chair playing or on the floor (he rolled over the other day from his stomach to his back!)
Daddy gets home just before dinner (most days - but lately we haven't seen him much, he's been working a lot!)
Then during dinner we watch Jeopardy (Ben's favorite) and Wheel of Fortune (Pauly's favorite!).
After that William usually goes down for a little nap and I paint or do play-do with Pauly or play the Memory Game - our favorite!
Then Pauly's tub time and one of us are usually sitting in there monitoring him and making sure he isn't drinking too much water - he loves to drink bath water... nerd! Then William wakes up to play for a little while.
Pauly usually goes to sleep about 8:30 9ish and that is when I breathe a deep sigh of relief and think, Awesome! I made it! I made it through another day with that 2 year old boy - Wow!
William gets his bath about this time and goes to bed at 10 or 11 - just differs, last night it was 9! It rocked! He was so tuckered out from skipping naps through yesterday between running errands and my Mama's Group.
Then Daddy and I watch a movie. "Something we both would like!" (inside joke) -
Last night I watched a little bit of Fletch with Chevy Chase, that movie is hilarious - I usually get through about 1/2 hour to 45 min. of the movie and I say, Don't be mad at me, I'm going to bed, Sorry. He never is mad - he knows it is coming just about every night. I've got to have my beauty sleep - I NEED A LOT OF IT :)!!! I usually get to sleep around 11:30 or sometimes sooner....
and then round and round it goes. I love it! & too bad I couldn't wear those sparkly shoes through the day, I think those would make me super happy every day! Aren't they fabulous?
I now realize what mom was talking about, I know Pauly loves William already and William sure adores Pauly. It's awesome the love between siblings sometimes and I am so thankful these boys have eahother.
I'll love you forever Grandma Great...
