Morbid or Normal or just Gavin being Gavin???

I am sure all you moms/parents have heard or seen, maybe even used those color tabs for the bath water when your kids take baths.  They change the color of the water, you have blue, red and yellow.  Let me just see what you think of what my wonderful, creative son does with them. 

When he has used up all the blue ones to make normal sea looking water, he must use his imagination for the other colors left.  He went with red and he gets them in the tub for a little bit and then asked me for a Lego man, I got him one with a little raft looking piece to go with him.  After spending time with Nana Tuesday night he has discovered Audrey from the Little Shop Of Horrors.  So after a few minutes of the color tab in the water its all fizzy and soft…when you use red and take it back out when its like that it makes for a perfect bloody death scene for Gavin. 

ohh Gavin 003   ohh Gavin 005

The Lego man died tonight by the large Venus Fly Trap looking monster (mom he had to pretend b/c the paper pictures wont make it in the tub).


Now, I think if it had been a death scene where the man died by murder I would be a little worried, but this didn’t get acted out just made the death scene by monster and I have to say that I am not worried b/c this is Gavin just being creative and has no issues with violence or anything else.  He is creative and I am proud.   Like I always say, “ Ohh, Gavin! “.

Oh what summer fun!!!!!

It’s that time of the year, and where is Gavin?  Oh that’s right he has friends all around the block and has almost no time for mommy….that’s right he is 6 and already ditched his mom…lol.  He is riding on his bike with no training wheels and why not gets him to all his friends houses faster.  I am proud of him though and he is a good friend.

We have set the pool up and started pool time. Gavin is one fish and super creative when it some to playing in the pool.  Ally…well she is cute as a button and kinda just stands in one place in the pool.. I think she needs more time to get wild like her bubba.  She did like her Barbie tale in the pool…aka mermaid.

So now that summer is here I have really enjoyed them and today we went to the park, had lunch and then came home set a little bit of a bigger pool up (one that mommy can sit in too) and it was 7pm and Gavin was still in the pool.  Well cant wait for more summer fun, like the water parks and high school pool, plus I am thinking about signing Gavin up for swimming lessons so next year maybe the swim team.  Ally I think can start Head Start this year..found that out.  So lots to come…..

Breaking my own Rules!!!!

We all have done it and don’t try and say you haven’t, that would be when our kids are just so darn cute that whatever they are doing that they aren’t exactly supposed to be doing that we either let it slide or just break our own rules and let them do something that we wouldn’t have any other time.

Tonight Ms. Ally had gone to bed and was, of course watching Flushed Away.  She was laying in my bed when I put her to bed and watching her movie, later she called me in there and when I went she had gotten a few of her barbies out and put them in her bed and covered them up and said they were “sweeping”, that was already pretty cute but I hadn’t let my rules slip yet.  So then a little later she called me in there again and well, she had gotten a few more barbies out and was sitting in my bed playing with them and it was just so cute b/c she knew she wasn’t supposed to have them yet she looks up at me with that little grin she does and was said “I so happy”, and how could I break her little sprit? So with that I broke my rules and let you get up and play after she was already in bed.

But I had so much fun with her, she played barbies for a little bit on the couch watching Toy Story and then she went and got her tea set and made me cookies and coffee and I enjoyed the alone time with just her and I because Gavin was already in bed asleep.
