Nathan and I were playing with his trains on his train tracks. One of the extras that came with his train set is a little “car wash” you can run the trains through. See, a few times a month, I’ll take Nathan with me to an actual car wash to vacuum out my car, and then we have fun watching all the suds and spinning sponges as we go through the wash itself. So as we were playing with his trains, I talked about taking his trains through the car wash on the tracks, like we do with my car.
“Ready to take your trains to the car wash?” I asked.
“No. Train wash,” Nathan stated matter-of-factly.
This kid is sharp. Very sharp.
Nathan really likes to color. What’s really cute it watching him color in a coloring book or on one of those children’s menus that restaurants give kids… he tries so hard to color in the lines, but of course, he doesn’t have the motor skills to do that just yet. And he also really likes when Paul or I draw on the paper as well, and then Nathan will try to mimic what we’ve done. Right now, we’re practicing circles.
In other news, I am so looking forward to Thanksgiving! My husband will be off from work Wednesday through Sunday for a much-needed break. I can’t wait to hang out with him and enjoy some time together! And don’t even get me started on the good food I will be gorging on. We’re having Thanksgiving at Paul’s grandmother’s house, and let me tell you that woman can cook like you would not believe. And the most awesome part is that many of her recipes are from her her mother and grandmother… talk about deliciousness!
Hopefully, I won’t gain too much weight this year…
(Yeah right. Lock up your pumpkin pies because I am on a path of consumption!)
I have somewhat of a plan this year, though. I’m going to try to steer clear of foods that I have easy access to throughout the year such as candy, etc. But stuff that I don’t get that often will be okay to eat, as long as I (try) to keep it in moderation. I only have 10-15 more pounds to go before I’m at my goal weight, and with the holidays factored in, I am giving myself til March to lose it.
Wish me luck.
