I learned a lesson in parenting today. Wrapping Christmas presents with one toddler in the room is annoying, yet doable. Doing it with two toddlers in the room = FAIL. Then if you put those two toddlers in their playpen while you wrap, they will stand at the gate, looking over at you and scream. Just thought I'd share that new experience ;)
The boys have speech therapy tomorrow, and Jax also has occupational therapy. Jason comes home tonight from a work trip, so the boys will be excited to see him when they wake up. I took them to the mall for an hour this morning, and we stopped and watched Santa talk to little kids. I thought about letting them sit on him for a photo opp, but I could see the look of uncertainty in Jax's eyes...so I ditched that idea quickly since I was alone!
Chasing after Jax with his backpack as he shimmies around the house is getting increasingly hard. He keeps crawling through his tunnel and doesn't realize the backpack can't go with him. Needless to say I've been cleaning up and changing his clothes multiple times a day with the tubes getting dislodged and making a mess! I can't wait for him to be able to wear his own little backpack to avoid all these issues. Well...I would love more for him to not need it at all, but you get my drift.
Here are some pics of the boys wrestling and playing in the tunnel:
**Notice the backpack stuck in the entrance (sigh...)
