J has had a immeasurable success with his dog Gordon-Henry Issac. He informed me Issac is his last name which differs from ours.

GHI has eased anxiety. For example, he HATES to be ALONE. Yesterday, he was in his Grandparents home , while we all talked outside . He opened up the back door and asked ” Mom, can you come inside with me?” and I replied ” I am enjoying being outdoors talking to Grandma. You can bring your toys outside.” He said ” No, I don’t want to.” he shut the door and played inside.  Last, we he would have whined , cried and demanded that I play with him exclaiming he was scared and lonely. My Mom noticed a difference in his behavior .

J has NEVER slept in his own crib  or bed. He used to scream just passing his crib. He has had his bed three and a half years and hadn’t slept in it. For the last 3 nights he has been sleeping in bed without complaint.

I LOVE everything about this preschool.

The foliage is amazing .

It is pretty awesome to have a indoor pond.

Parental involvement is a plus.

I am overjoyed by their book selection.

Nature is abundant….simply astounding .

We enjoyed a carefree Monday by planting flowers.

Vinca’s, Pansies, and Snap Dragon’s now litter our yard.

We had fun making a Home depot run.

J picked out Yellow Pear Tomato plant , pansies and petunias.

            

I admired the grapefruit mint , which smells exquisite.

I am planning on putting these plants with unsowed seed.

Our garden will have exotic and beautiful colors : yellow, pink, magenta, and violet.

On Tuesday, I was at the grocery store strolling the spice aisle .

I decided I would sow the spice seeds poppy and fennel.

I have a empty spot that I will sow the poppy seeds.

Fennel seeds will help J when he has a upper respiratory infection.

  

           

    

Here is the tent I RESURRECTED!

It brought some fun for my big boy, today.

 

 

Over the weekend, I have introduced the backyard to toys we haven’t played with in awhile.

I want to make the backyard a fun and movement focused area.

I took out the tunnel, basketball hoop, and tent.

In the tent will be balls, lego blocks, and foam blocks.

The backyard is a place of creativity and imagination.

Here are a few pics of our backyard fun!

 Climbing his dome.

 Painting with water.

 Basketball challenge.

 Story time; He is retelling the story of Verdi.

 Raking his sandbox.

Yesterday, I went to Target. I dreamed of a nice mature patio, with a fabulous wicker set. Then catapulted myself to REALITY , of inexpensive plastic chairs.

  vs. 

 

I want a bright, bold , neon colors. I want a accent wall that stands out from my dull colored home. In my fantasy, there are plants in BOLD ceramic containers. Flowers will come in a array of colors…hanging in planters.

    

I am going to create my fantasy on a strict budget…I WILL make this happen slowly but surely!
