Today I woke up to the sweet sound of nothing. And by nothing I really mean no whining. Evan got dressed with little prompting and the only school-related words I heard out of his mouth were "Mom! I could put my sandals in this pocket and my goggles in that pocket and have lots more room!" Yes you can, my son. And on the way to school, he thanked me for his new backpack and said "it makes me very happy because it doesn't make me cry" which made me so happy I wanted to cry.
Ahhh...success. For one day at least, but it's one day longer than we've had in a while.
And apparently there's an alligator chomping on my husband's ass (his words, not mine). He "accidentally" ordered the Indiana Jones Lego game for the Wii off of Amazon. At least I have the sense to blame it on Evan!!
