Our weekend was really fun. Devin and I got to go on a date! We don't go out very often and I forget how much I enjoy it. Every time we get to, I think, "We have got to do this more!" We ate at one of our favorite places, The Deli. As usual, it was divine! Then we saw Inception. It was awesome! I hadn't heard a bad review, so I didn't think I would be disappointed, but really, I loved it!
Then Saturday, I had a few hours of childcare training and Devin had to work, but we spent the afternoon having a BBQ, swimming, ice cream, and a movie with our little guys. It's so fun to play with them! Often, I get caught up in what needs to be done and forget to take time to do the fun things with the kids too. As their mama, I have learned those fun activities are just as important as the necessary ones because those moments are the ones that make bonds and memories.
Devin has been watching the Airbender cartoon and Jax joined him for a few episodes recently. Now they like to play "Airbender" and run around the house making sound effects. It's fun to see Devin be such a good daddy.
Sunday, as usual, was fabulous. With church and relaxing at home, how could you go wrong? Devin made a yummy homemade macaroni and cheese dinner and we enjoyed the evening as a family. We're so blessed.
Tonight for FHE...house rules. Since Jaxon has been going to preschool, he has been quoting his preschool rules at home, "I can keep my hands and feet to myself. I can be respectful to people and things. I participate. I can do it! Wohoo!"--he loves that part! And, he points out when other kids aren't following those preschool rules. This made me realize we've never really sat down and explained the rules within our home. Of course, he knows he's not supposed to hit, yell, etc, but I think (and Devin agrees) that maybe he'd be more obedient to those "unwritten rules" if they were actually written!
