Daddy's home!

Gary was gone for 3 days on the rafting trip that the grads go on. He had a great time and we're glad that he is home! It actually wasn't that bad doing it on my own as Kai was at daycare 2 out of the 3 days:)
Not much else new...we won our football game again this weekend so that was nice! On Sunday, Gary and I were in the infant nursery at church and it was interesting to see the difference between the kids that were all about the same age. Kai was the only boy and I have to say that as the girls played quietly and quite stationary (even cuddling?!), Kai was just running around and displacing everything. I think he has cuddled twice with me in the past 6 months, both times when he has been sick. He would rather slap me in the face...he's still doing it...its hard not to get mad or cry about it as I feel hurt physically and emotionally. I am trying to respond a lot more calmly in my `no' so that it might not be as exciting of a response that he gets. Oh well, he really is a fabulous boy and I've heard that although boys are rambunctious and wild as toddlers, they are much easier teenagers! Let's hope so.

    A thought about the slapping... how about giving him a outlet for it? You could try to find one of those blow up Bozo punching clowns. And/or maybe he needs a little more physical activity? I found that with Eva this spring and I think little boys generally need even more running and climbing and jumping than girls do.
