Taco Tuesday!

So, I wasted the whole day at work. It goes by so slowly when no one comes in the store! Part of it was me too, I got distracted by all the things I need to get done this week and couldn't concentrate on anything else! We had the Fairey's over tonight because we hadn't done Taco Tuesday forever, and our kids love playing together, even though they eat so little. They have been such good friends though, and I love that they like to come to my house- even if it's crazy when they are here! I sent Monica home with a Melatonin pill for each of her kids- and a personal guarantee that they'd settle down real quick! Ali was out before Gage tonight! Amazing!
Speaking of Gage, I have to have a proud mommy moment. Since Christmas, Gage and I have read 8- yes 8!- Magic Treehouse books. When I say Gage and I, I don't mean that I read it to him. We have reading time before bed, and I usually read to them for about 30 minutes or so, I love it, and I want them to love it. But, after I've read, Gage will read in bed till he's ready to go to sleep, and he has read the majority of all of these books by himself. The thing that amazes me most is that he really retains it too! His comprehension is great! I remember first learning how to read and just being happy that I made it through a book by myself, I don't know if I remembered anything from the book itself. He uses the books as his reading at school and his teacher even tests him on them after... and of course he has to tell me all about the parts I've missed. I love to see him enjoy books like I do!

Good for you that you read to your kids! It's one of the most important things you can do as a mom!

Good times reading with the kiddos. My oldest loves to read and #2 is just getting the hang of it. Hey, seen any decent houses for rent out there in Ver-nowhere? My hubby is there for two weeks right now doing some work. We would love to find a place out there so he can be closer to his work.

Kamryn used to love those Magic Tree House books. We have a whole bunch of them. If you want to borrow any of them just let me know.

I gave Jordan 1mg of Melatonin the last 2 nights....he was as annoying as ever. But, I think tonight I will give him 2 tabs (1mg tabs). He is a lot bigger than Ali. He probably just needs more.
