Nichole: Oooh, they look like like donuts.
(pause to take a bite)
And on the top they taste like donuts.
When Jr. woke up and came out-
Nichole: Daddy's making spudnuts into donuts and donut rolls. Try it. It's delicious?
Did you know those are yummy, too?
Jr. (in a confused voice after picking off the sprinkles and eating them): No more sprinkles.
Nichole (while watching Daddy frost the donuts and holes): There's some of those sauce on the donut rolls.
It's going to be a sprinkle pie donut roll.

That evening, I let the kids watch the movie. They had been good that day, so I was happy to let them watch it.

Mommy: Nichole, clean up your stuff in the living room, please.
Nichole: Jr., will you clean up my stuff... with me?
Jr.: I can.
Jr. (while playing): I am.
Nichole: It's a big big big big mess.
Jr. (continues playing): I don't see a mess.
Nichole: Yes, see? Look around. It's all over. You didn't clean it up!
It went on like this for a little while. Eventually, Nichole threw everything in the folder. As I picked it up, little pieces and crayons came falling out all over the place. I helped her realize there was a better way of doing it. Clean up the crayons first. Put the papers into piles then put the piles in the page protectors where they go.
A little while later I was going through the exact same thing with Jr. and his activity folder. Didn't he learn anything from this experience with his sister?

It was a nice family activity.

It will fit his tools just putting them in the pockets. Or he can put anything else he wants in there. This tool belt has room for him to grow, which is good because he's not really interested in it right now. That's okay. I finally convinced him to wear it long enough to get a picture.

When Jr. finished eating, he joined in, and our little Jr. Jr. even kicked a bit in his bouncer seat.
It felt really good to just let go and be silly with the kids. We all needed it.

We also had him wear these sweet little booties and white socks Jeremy's aunt sent us. Thanks, Aunt Donna.
