It’s hard to believe that Ethan is 1 1/2 today! Marking today was Ethan’s last day at daycare, it was really bittersweet. The ladies there are so sweet to him, and I know so special to him.
When I came to pick him up, he cried, didn’t want me to hold him and reached out to both of the ladies. He was really upset to leave. It was almost as if he realized that it was his last day. As hard as it was, I know that it’s the best thing for him. He’s going to learn so much at his new school and love it just as much.
In preparation for his new school I bought him a new backpack, lunch box and accessories. I got the cutest set from my favorite place, www.diapers.com. It’s by Crocodile Creek and it’s got a Stegosaurus on it.
It’s going to be new for me to pack him a lunch everyday. I went grocery shopping a couple of days ago for some lunch goodies. Here’s what I have in mind so far (obviously not all on the same day 🙂 ).
Hummus and veggies to dip in it
Chicken spring rolls
Pita Shell, and put some meat cheese and tomato’s inside
Tomatos (he is obsessed with them right now)
Ethan is an animal lover! Today’s new word was shark. He also imitates’s the alligator by chomping his arms together. We read one of his many animal books earlier, which is falling apart from him reading it so much. He had ripped off the last page of the book, and turned to that page and put his arms up in the air like “what happened?”.
As far as tricks go, his latest trick is messing with the buttons on the dishwasher. I did a load a couple days ago on “rinse only” because someone had turned the knob… I wasn’t too excited when I used the vegetable peeler and realized that it hadn’t been cleaned with soap and there was a plate that had raw chicken on it inside.
Just a few minutes ago, I realized the dishwasher was on, and I didn’t turn it on… I went in the kitchen and it was on “upper rack wash” only with no soap in the dishwasher. I’m going to have to watch the little bugger a little more closely.
