happy halloween!!!!

i cannot believe that it is halloween already! where does the time go? the day has started full force--lots of celebrating here in our little home! i made the kids a fun little breakfast which included pancakes with spiders and ice cubes in their drinks with spiders frozen inside. the table was decorated with a fun tablecloth, halloween dishware, and candy corn scattered around. the kids loved it!! i love that little simple things mean so much to them. yesterday was the big school parade down main street and class party (we don't have school today). i am the head room mom in "A's" class so "k" and i were able help with the party--it was simple, but loved by the kiddos! yesterday "A" said--"this is one of the best days of my life!" i asked him why?--his response--"because it is the day before halloween!"
update on "M"--i took him to the pediatrician--he doesn't have a bladder infection, etc. he thinks that it is possibly anxiety. i pulled him out of the "new school" yesterday--i feel really good about the decision. i think that it was not the right fit for him. i am hoping that with a little more "mommy time" things will get back to normal.

Happy Halloween Di! I bet you will see a big difference in "M". Sometimes they can't express what they need, and luckily they us to help them. "M" is lucky to have a good mom like you. Enjoy the time together. They grow up too fast.

Don't you love how the right thing always feels right? What would we do without that?! Good luck . . .I'm sure the mommy time will be great! Who wouldn't feel better spending more time with you?!

Good luck figuring things sounds like you made the right decision! Just remember... almost everything's a phase and you'll get through it! You're definitely sweet and sensitive enough as a mom to help him with whatever he needs.
