I keep on reminding myself that I’m going to blog but then I get distracted. At least I’m blogging in the same month! May is crazy. My parents went to Taiwan for 3 weeks so my mother in law came down from Montreal to take care of Carey for 3 weeks. At the end of her 3 week stay, we went to Montreal to celebrate the May birthdays a little earlier and stayed there for close to a week. It was so nice to get away from the area and have a pseudo vacation. We had to cut our vacation short because we had just purchased a Sony 3D TV because our old crappy Panasonic was on its way out. That piece of crap TV has been running on fumes after the first year, just after the warranty ran out. Carey hurried the process because he loves pressing buttons and since the plasma wasn’t hanging high on the wall, he had easy access to it and to destroy it. 🙂 That’s ok. I think Meanie has been urging Carey to break it so he can get his beloved new 3D tv! I have to admit that it’s really really nice and now it’s hanging high on the wall so Carey can’t touch it. Haha.
There are 3 birthdays this week in my family. Tomorrow is Meanie’s birthday and my nephew (in Montreal)’s birthday. Thursday is Carey’s second birthday!! Time really does fly. Just a little too fast. We threw Carey a big birthday party at our house over the weekend and it seemed to be a huge success. We couldn’t have pulled it off without all the help we had!
The rest of the pictures from the party can be seen on my Facebook account. It was really great to catch up with friends and family.
Carey started daycare last week. We actually checked out a local daycare in our area at the end of March and it seemed really homey and the teachers looked like they actually cared. Carey has been placed in the youngest class and will be there till he’s around 2.5, though maybe a little more than 2.5 because he is technically a preemie (2 months younger than his actual age). Today was the 3rd time we dropped him off and he still didn’t seem so happy. However, I think daycare has speeded up his talking. He was only talking a tiny bit before he went to daycare but now he’s talking so much more! He’s started 2 word sentences and is starting to communicate a little more. Both his dad and I are so proud that he’s showing improvement!
On the other hand, he is a little devil. He is mischievous, naughty and such a boy. He also likes to beat me up. 😦 I’ve been trying to instill fear of him (of me, lol) so that he would be scared. I’ve tried time outs and I think he’s starting to get a clue of them but yet, he will still beat me up if I tell him “No” or if I scold him about something. It’s a work in progress. And I know I have to repeat and repeat and repeat till it gets through his head. It’s a bit tiring on me too!
Today the daycare has started Project Sippy Cup. No more bottles! The teacher said that he’s starting to use the bottle as a security object since he’s no longer using pacifiers. Basically the bottle nipples have replaced his pacifiers and all he does is gnaw on them. I refuse to buy more bottle nipples! So as of today, the bottles go into the trash (hide them away from view) so he’s forced to drink the milk from his sippy cup. I just have to enforce it at home and make my mom enforce it, too. Wish us luck! It’s also kinda embarrassing cuz all the older kids in his class are all on sippy cups except for him and infants. He’s not an infant anymore. 😦
On to me news. I need to lose weight. I’m sick of being fat. Hahah. I’m looking into using the Wii has a workout tool because I’m too poor and too cheap to pay for a gym membership or pay for a class. I want to resume taking walks around the neighborhood now that it’s warmer except the rain is not cooperating. I have to delay this for a week because clumsy me ran into something and my toe is totally purple and hurts when I walk.
I hear so much about Zumba so I think I will buy Zumba for the Wii. I hope this helps!!
