  2. Added blueberries.
  3. Added plain yogurt.
  4. Sprinkled granola on the top.
  • Mica sits down and says, "Yes! I love Fiber Plus Blueberry Cereal!"
  • I explained how I made the cereal, and that it isn't Fiber Plus.
  • Too cute! I love this kid!

Daddy Rode His Bike Too

Isaak liked to be pushed for 2 minutes. The rest of the time he had to push his bike himself.

Trip to the Farm




Daddy took Mica to the Gifford Farm today! It was trip with his preschool class. Mica was most excited to see the turkeys.

Two years ago he went to the farm with preschool. Mica thought they should have peacocks. He was pretty disappointed that they didn't. I think he knew what to expect this time.

Daddy didn't know what to think of two things: 

1. There was one boy that was hanging on Mica like he was Mica's best friend. The trouble is, is that Mica was trying to shove him away. He was too close to his personal space. This little boy also looked like his parents hardly trim his nails. A big "No No" to us. This is a major pet peeve to us because Mica had one staph infection that almost cost him his life. We really don't need him getting another infection. Just saying!

2. A girl came up to Mica and was holding his hand walking with him. The teachers told Daddy that she's liked him from the get go. We asked Mica if he liked her? He said, "No not really. I like Alison." Alison's moved on to kindergarten. Mica thinks Alison's sister is cute because she has a Hannah Montana backpack?!? Not sure how he picked that one up!

    "I Think She's Cute Because She Has a Hannah Montana Backpack"!

    • Mica had a so called girlfriend last year named Alison. Alison went on to kindergarten.
    • Now there are only two girls in his class. Alison's sister Emma and another girl.
    • Mica told us last Friday that he thinks Emma is cute because she has a Hannah Montana backpack! 
    • "What"? is what I was thinking! We don't even have cable for him to see or know what Hannah Montana is all about. The media has found a way into Mica's brain anyhow.



    Sluggish

    • I was feeling sluggish all weekend. 
    • Isaak's been on a nap strike. That wore me out even more. I understand when Mica won't take a nap at 5 years old, but when Isaak at 2 years old won't take one, well it wears me out. He's just grumpy all evening! Last night we put him to bed at 6:45 pm. The earliest we have ever put him to bed! He slept all night too. Daddy had to go in to wake him up this morning. 
    • Isaak's been off from teething. I don't think that's why he didn't want to nap. He literally laid in there for 2 hours just talking and singing happily to himself. If he wasn't so grumpy in the evening, I guess I wouldn't care that he didn't nap.
    • Last evening I got some one on one time with Mica. That was nice. We played Memory. He's getting much better at the game!
    • Then it happened, I lost my voice. It was like someone hit a dimmer light switch inside my vocal cords. I sound husky, masculine and have to keep clearing my throat when I do talk.

    School House Rocks!

    • I had my kids watch some School House Rock on YouTube today. 
    • I never knew about School House Rock. It was before my time. 
    • At work, we were talking about how Mica knew the Preamble, and how he's forgotten some of it in the last year. My co-worker said to just have him watch School House Rock. The boy's liked it.
    • They have little catchy songs that explains government.
    • Watching School House Rock would have helped me with Civic class I think. I didn't understand government at all back in high school. I still don't totally understand everything, but I'm a lot more knowledgeable now.

    • My Baby's Green asked for my permission to use his photo's on her website. 
    • She thought Mica looked so cute in the photo's I pasted to her facebook page.
    • Here's Mica:
