it has been pretty quiet here on the blog lately but at home it has been everything but quiet. this weekend i went to lakeshore to buy a couple things to start home schooling niko. niko tells me just about every day that he wants to go to school but he's not potty trained and isn't very consistent on the whole potty department. i know i have a lot to learn about potty training too but it can sometimes be overwhelming and so i easily give up. well, home schooling could go smoother than it has been. it seems my kiddo isn't too interested yet but i did schedule an appointment with a preschool this week. today was one of the hottest days of the year, like ninety something degree weather. the kids got hosed down in the back yard and they absolutely loved it. they both wore little niko undies and had a blast splashing around. and all it took was just a little bit of water, oh the simple things in life! then later in the day niko told me i was his best friend, the first time he ever said this to me. it caught me off guard and i felt so special! he could say some really sweet things when he's in a good mood. but then later he told his Papa that he was his best friend, what a cute and sweet little trader. i guess we could both be his best friends, i seem to have a bunch of best friends myself :)
Niko: shirt, handed down from his cousins. shorts, childrens place. shoes, vans.
(sleepy face) Luna: dress, baby gap, handed down from her cousins. shoes, saltwater.
Quick note about hand-me-downs:: I LOVE when my kids wear hand me downs. we have been so blessed to get so much clothes from their older cousins. and it makes me happy to see Niko excited about the clothes he has received from his cousins because he loves them so much. some of the clothes my kids wear has been handed down up to four-five times and it has more history and sentimental value to us. i truly am grateful to have received such pre-loved gems!
