Five Fact Friday

1. This is huge (not really)!  I can do ONE unassisted pull up now.  Goooooo meeeeeeee.

2. Wyatt gave up naps this week. Except for one day...when he fell asleep surrounded by his toys, lights on, mid babble. He made it into his bed somehow.  We are improving on staying in our room for rest time.  It is super tempting to just let him watch TV so I can do my work while Kate naps but I am staying strong...for now.  I really wanted to cry when I noticed it was 4 days in a row no nap. I had ice cream instead.

3. Hunter has been really awesome at getting home by 6:30 PM 2 nights a week so I can get my exercise on.  I only have to nag him once or twice a day.  He finishes up kid dinner and bath if I didn't get to it by then. He gets them both to bed sometimes before I get home. He puts up the food and starts the dishes. It has been really great.  BUT...he did forget to put a diaper on Wyatt one night this week.  The wailing at 12:40 was a shocker.  A quick bed redo and jammie redo and we were back in business. Luckily the pee didn't get on teddy or shamu.  I probably would have just let him snuggle his pee animals at that point.  Kid #1 woke up kid #2 with the wailing on that one.  ALMOST perfect. ALMOST.

4. In case you need to know, I have perfected sweet potato hash browns for breakfast.  Peel your taters first.  Poke 2 or 3 holes in each.  Zap them in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes depending on how big they are.  Let them cool just enough.  Slice them,  cube them, however them. Heat your cast iron skillet on med-high, put some olive oil in it, put your taters in, add salt and pepper, stir them around.  Then let the taters sit for 4 minutes.  Stir / flip....4 more minutes.  Done.  They really are perfect.  If I am not sharing with kiddos I add cayenne pepper.  I have been serving with fried or scrambled eggs and feeling all paleo.  I am not paleo, but I do have alot of sweet potatoes to use and I love eggs. :)

5. Thursday night I asked Wyatt if he wanted to go to a Christmas party and see Santa and get a present instead of going to school.  He said no. He would rather go to school.  Ha ha!!! I made him skip, and he had a good time.  Hold onto that school love buddy.  Lots of years coming.

Shatterproof ornaments yay!

The nap fact is so sad. Hopefully it was just a fluke - otherwise you're probably eating more ice cream than you're burning in boot camp. The diaper fact cracks me up. We're in the same boat about school love. I hope they have it for a long, long time.
