Life With Wee People: Snow Bandits
Stephen, the Blur Minion, has discovered the quickest way into his girlfriend's heart is to barrel down the slide, dive into the snow, then roll your way around the side until it's time to climb the ladder and do it all over again.
I think my fave part of the play-date is when Noah told them to make Snow Angels. Seems they couldn't remember if they should be face up or face down so they did it both ways (LMAO). I kept thinking, "what the hell are they thinking???" but didn't want to interrupt the fun because if you are going to have a snow date the least you can do as a parent is get out of the way and let the wee people freak out. :-)
At one point, between several off the wall conversatons with two of the moms, we had to have a serious talk about stephen's potato fetish. Shorty kept stealing the eyes off the snowman next to the swings and sent the nose packing in a PDD-NOS fit of minature rage when we told him he had to put the spuds back. No ifs, ands or buts about it. I eventually got him to remake the face (which was a big mistake because he took that to mean he could fix them all and started disassembling the other snowman so he could make that one over).
Shorty had to be reminded that Yanidmar et al worked really hard on that puppy and the other kids would not be pleased regarding his sudden reign of terror. When parents freeze their bahookies off so the wee ones can have fun you sometimes have to find a way to get through to the little people that one ought not to destroy yesterday's work for today's brief moment of pleasure. Poor Noah had to attach that arm at least three times. I fixed it once myself. I think Miya may had mended it a time or two as well. However, being Stephen, he was relentless in his quest for destruction. Thus, we had to distract him with the fruit tree that died during the snow storm to quench his hyperactivity.
Stephen gave it maybe two minutes of thought. Noah decided to shoot pictures of trees with his Nikon since this tree had no snow on its branches while all the other trees do. I guess when we get back from showing homes in Briarwood, Queens Village and Fresh Meadows my budding 8 year old photographer will have another wee people perspective to share with you.
I am looking forward to seeing what catches his eye and where our sketching is going to take us tonight. I hear he may be dyslexic (which would explain a lot) so after they test him and I learn more about it maybe I will be able to help him communicate more effectively. I'm playing towards his strengths and his quirky little traits are really starting to fascinate me because he's been expressing himself in very interesting ways.
Gotta run. Got clients to meet and shorties that need a clean change of clothes. We also have to go shopping. Mr Noah wants broccoli with his free range chicken tonight. We're cooking Japanese and have a date to watch some Netflix. My boys love Dr. Who. I think it's the goofy aliens and British accent. ;-)
