It has been a couple of weeks since I have posted Sunday Funnies. There just hasn't been anything super funny going on around here. Wait a minute. What am I talking about? Everything is funny these days. Because if I don't laugh, I'm going to cry. It's just a little nuts around here. There is a lot going on, and not enough time to do it all.
Anyway, wah wah wah, I know. I do have a couple little funnies for you today.
Rylie was having coughing fits during her sleep last week. And after she barfed during one of them, I had to figure out something to help her. So the next night I told her that after her bath and everything she was going to get some honey before she went to bed. A few times during and after her bath she kept telling me she wanted cantaloupe. I didn't quite understand why. She knows that she doesn't usually get anything else to eat after dinner. But she kept asking for it and I kept telling her we didn't have any. And after I would tell her that she would say "well what are you going to give me?" Um, nothing. So after about the third or fourth time of this, the little light bulb went off in my head. I asked her if she was talking about the honey she was going to get and she said yes. Apparently she got a little confused. Usually she has honeydew melon and cantaloupe together. She had never had honey before, so I guess she was thinking she was going to get some kind of fruit. Cantaloupe/honeydew, what's the difference? She figured out what honey was a short time later. And by the way, it did help!
Another funny thing Rylie said was "Santa Claus my hands" when I pulled out the hand sanitizer and told her to sanitize her hands. I love the little things she messes up!
And in other news...
Bryce is a biter. Yep. My kid has a label. I think I had to sign three incident reports last week when I picked him up from school for his new habit. On Friday the center director had to talk to me about it, and she gave me some stupid paper about why kids bite. Thanks, but I know why he is biting. He's teething, and he can't communicate. So when he gets frustrated the little chompers get going. I get that she had to follow some kind of protocol, but at this age there isn't too much you can do. Calmly tell him no and redirect him to something else...preferably something he is allowed to chew on.
Up until this weekend, his friends at school were the only targets of the little chomper. Sadly, today, his sister experienced the wrath. Bryce was pushing around one of the ride-on toys and got stuck against the wall. He got frustrated that he couldn't move it. So Rylie went over to help him and I guess he thought she was going to take it from him (hmmmm, I wonder why he would think that???) and he just chomped down on her arm. I felt so bad for her. She still actually has four little marks where his teeth landed. I was surprised though, that she didn't do anything back to him. She just started crying and ran over to Brian. I'm sure it hurt like hell.
Oh, and he bit himself too. Hard enough to leave marks. Ouch!
I wonder now if people are going to change their RSVPs to his party?
And now I have some news that is a lot more fun! I am officially a soccer mom! Rylie is all signed up to play soccer. I found a league that takes kids as young as 2. They play with 4 players on a team and no goalie. They don't keep score either. They haven't published the rosters yet, but as far as I know she is going to be playing with Rihanna, Cole and Ethan, who are three of her friends from school. Unfortunately the "meet the team and coach" and first practice are the same day as Bryce's party, so I won't be able to go. At least the first game isn't that day because I would hate to miss that. This is going to be so much fun! I can't wait to see her play! Now, if I could only find soccer shorts and cleats in her size.
I just have to tell you all what a great husband I have. Out of the four of us in our little group at the meeting, we were the only ones that had two parents there. So when the guy announced that there was a fun bus out front and all the kids could go in while he was conducting the meeting, guess who got elected to take all four of them? Yep, that would be Brian. I gotta say I was amused at watching him walk out with the line of four toddlers (the rest are three) holding hands. It was so cute. But what was even funnier was that he ended up having to take them all to the bathroom. Because you know how it goes...when one has to go, they all have to go. Good times!
I hope everyone had a great weekend and has a fabulous week this week!
