6:30 this morning we here "mommy, my sunshine is on". this is what she was talking about. the best gadget in the WHOLE WIDE world! my little sunshine, sara beth, likes to wake up early--like 5:30, 5:45ish. we (i mean zeb) puts her back in bed and she has to stay until 6:15 or so--but it's very frustrating!
my sis-in-law, laura, found this awesome clock. it has a clock on the back and you can set the times. for instance, we set it so that the moon will come on at 6:30 p.m. and she knows it will soon be bedtime. then, we set the sunshine to shine at 6:30 a.m. sara beth knew she had to wait for the sun to shine for morning! she was so proud of herself! zeb and i have talked about how frustrating it might be for her because morning time has always been a guessing game--now she has something concrete to know!
we got it at www.goodnitelite.com. well worth the money!!!!!!!!!!!!on monday, while sb was at school, mom and i took the other three to the library. here they are singing "the wheels on the bus"!
and getting in some reading time with my may
tuesday, we decided the big girls needed some time alone. mom played with leigh and bryson slept late (or normal in his case--10ish). i took the girls to the park. (the red sweatsuits were pure coincidence-but they loved it!)
don't they look big and mature in this pic
i showed them how to "train" down a slide
then we met everyone else at backyard burger and they all got some sliding time!
