I'm not sure I like the grass

Happy Wordless Wednesday! He is a quick shot of D experiencing grass for the first time. He's not quite sure if he likes it! At first he would only put one foot down at a time. Eventually he got so he tolerated it enough to chase his big brothers around the yard, as much as our hilly, bumpy yard would allow.

Has this happened to your baby?

My 11 month old son was screaming bloody murder, I raced to his crib to find that his leg was stuck in the crib railing at the knee and he couldn't get it out. It wasn't really stuck, just a gentle manuver and his leg was easily freed. Basically he fell asleep with his leg dangling out and apparently tried to turn in his sleep and it was stuck.

Poor guy. This is not the first time this has happened. My middle son, did the same thing at this age. Do my kids have usually large knees or what? Has this happened to you? And no the crib is not some 1960's contraption painted with lead paint. I received it brand new for a baby shower gift when I was pregnant with my oldest. Neverless sure makes your heart race when you hear your baby screaming like he was!

Only 9 more days of school left!?!?

I look forward to summer, yet dread it at the same time!

I look forward to:

Spending time with my kids outdoors and fun activities
Sleeping in past 6 AM, (if my baby will let me!)
Not waiting for the bus that's always early when we are running late & always running late when we are ready
Not having to recycle the mounds of schoolwork my 2nd grader brings home to me each day.

I don't look forward to:

The endless "Mom he took/hit/broke/hid" (You get the idea)
Lugging all the gear we'll need to go to the park, pool, zoo or other field trips.
The day I realize I have ran out of things to keep them entertained and its just too hot to play outside - the result? Bored, cranky kids.

So now I am wracking my brain trying to make a list of everything we can do this summer that will wear my kids out but not wear me out! Stay tuned to see my ideas and maybe you can share some of yours.
