In the morning we went out for coffee and a walk to the beach during preschool. My new favorite is sprinkling raw sugar on my cappuccino foam. It’s like coffee creme brulee.
I spent the afternoon taking extra care to play with Finn and talk with him about what’s been bothering him to make him act out at school. (As if a brother who receives constant attention for his foot and a baby on the way aren’t enough!) But he did say that kids at school tell him to shut up and take toys away from him. He said he has no friends. I told him I was his friend and he cried in my arms.
Oliver has learned to ride his trike with one foot and the two boys rode their red bikes together for the first time. It was so precious, I could have died. While they rode bikes I got a little yard work done. Nothing that required bending over, though! It felt therapeutic to rake dead leaves away from the new shoots coming up. Those day lilies are getting ready to sprout!
For dinner I made yummy brown sugar and lemon zest salmon. (every one of us ADORE fish!)
And then we watched Willy Wonka with popcorn. (side note: Does anyone else think Bradley Cooper looks like Willy Wonka? Bwhaaa!)
I figured I’d pull out the big guns for my disobedient little boy. Believe me, he won’t be needing any oompa loompa songs any time soon! Finn could tell immediately which children were the bad children and that Charlie was good. That made me proud. He says he will obey and say sorry to his teacher on Thursday.
…..And that he will not eat the wrong kind of gum.
He is only five after all!
