A Little TLC Moment.

Last week I was watching Game 3 of the Lakers-Denver game (Lakers won on the road). Jadon decided that he wanted to watch the Laker game with me. Fiona took the girls out to Target. In the past Jadon would sit with me a few minutes and lose interest. This time around I decided to teach him some basics about basketball. First I drew out the lines on the court on a piece of paper and explained what each one represented (i.e. free throw line, three pointer) and how many points you get depending on where you shoot. Then I paralleled it to the court on TV. Then I quizzed him to make sure he knew what I had explained. I think from that he seem to enjoy the game more. He even told me shortly after "Dadda, I love you." Not only did that melt my heart but now he's a Laker fan. =)


Same School.

Next year all three kids are going to the same school (Jadon's current one). We decided to not have the girls' continue at their current one. Fiona felt that the girls' weren't learning a whole lot compared to what they'd learn at Jadon's. Jadon will be going all five days and the girls' are currently enrolled for two days a week (Tues. & Thurs). Although they are on top of the waiting list for three days a week (Mon., Wed., & Fri.). All three of them are quite excited (as are we).

Natalie: OCD?

I think Natalie has OCD or something. After every time she goes to the bathroom in the middle of the night, she tries to close the door quietly when she returns to her room. That's very courteous and all but she opens the door back up and closes it, opens it again and closes it. She does this probably half a dozen times or so. Last night she did this and Fiona went over and calmly told her to stop opening and closing the door and go to sleep. She ended up crying. She's cried on me before too.



This past weekend was filled with a couple of kiddy birthday parties. On Saturday the Fiona took the girls' to their friend's birthday party. I took Jadon out on a Father-Son outing. I ended up taking him to Dave N' Busters for a little play and then afterwards we ate at Ruby's for dinner. Then we had rendezvous with Fiona and the girls' and went to the 6:30p.m. Church service.

On Sunday, I took Jadon to his friend's birthday park at a local Pirate-themed park. They even had a Johnny Depp look-a-like playing Captain Jack Sparrow. He played the party really well. There were some teenage girls hovering around taking pictures.

After this past weekend, I don't think I want to go to another birthday party for a while.
