Well, as unbelievable as it seems, our long weekend is over. We're back to work and school tomorrow. I'm sorry to see this time come to an end. . .however, I am in need of some rest!! I suspect kiddo is getting to a point where the nap is no longer really benefitting him. ..he will nap for 2 to 2 1/2 hours still, on a lot of days, but will then be up until 10:00 at night and then up at 7:00 am. Not good for a Mommy and Daddy who want to sleep in a bit!! Perhaps I'll need to toy with nap a bit next weekend--an hour and a half??? Would that be enough for Mommy? : )
We had a nice time this weekend, though. Thanksgiving was great; Friday was nice and relaxing; the housekeeper, who was supposed to come on Friday did so on Saturday; Some of the outside lights are up and some of the inside Christmas decorations are set out; We finished the Living Room floor before Thanksgiving and then tore up the Dining Room immediately after. . .Housekeeper came, but the house looks likea wreck!!
And then, today, the first Sunday of Advent, the elf arrived for Aidan. Stepan arrived with a lot of fanfare--trains and the advice to be good because Stepan will advise Santa about Aidan's behavior. Although it didn't really work at church, so far, so good! Aidan loves the train and there are indications that Santa will bring a couple of more cars for the train when Stepan is picked up on Christmas Eve.
The only creepy part, and it is pretty creepy, is that within a half hour, Aidan was called Stepan, Steopa. Yes, that's right! Steopa!! After thinking to myself that maybe calling the elf Stepan might not have been the best idea, I commented to Pat how strange it is that there is so much stored in Aidan's little brain and we really don't know the half of it!!
But, anyway, Aidan had fun playing with his new train. . .Now if we could just get him to not step on the tracks!!
Chugga Chugga Choo Choo!!
