Boys Will Be Boys

Every night, when we put Nixon down to sleep, we'll let Landon watch one or two of "his shows" in his bed before we make him go to bed. I know a 3 year old probably shouldn't have a tv in his room, but that's beside the point in this story. Well, last night, we told him he could watch one show, but we didn't realize it was still kind of early, so we let him watch two without saying anything to him about it. When Chris went up to cut the tv off and say prayers, Landon started laughing and said, "I watched TWO shows Daddy." Chris played along and said, "Well, you got me. You watched two shows and I didn't even know it!" Landon was laughing hard by now and said, (with a mischevious smile) "You know what? Wonder Pets was coming on and I was going to trick you and watch 3 shows without telling you!" He's too funny. If this is as bad as it gets, we've got it made!

In other Landon news, he got sent to the Office for the first time last week. The teacher told me that he and another little boy were play fighting and it got out of hand and Landon just hauled off and bit the little boy. She did say that she thinks he did it without thinking because as soon as he did it, you could see all over his face that he knew he was in trouble. He didn't leave any marks on the little boy, but to prove a point, he got sent to the office to call Daddy. Well, as he heard this news, he proceeded to bust out crying and said, "Please don't call my Daddy. I'll be in trouble." She didn't call home because she thought he had learned his lesson and it was definitely not "Landon" behavior. He didn't want to talk about it when he got home because I think he was kind of embarassed about being sent to the office.

Last, but not least, here's a picture of Nixon at his best!

We Don't Say That!

Well, if I didn't think I had any "boy" moments so far, I've definitely had one as of this afternoon. When I picked the boys up from school and had them both settled in their carseats, we headed home. Landon proceeded to inform me that "B.T. got in trouble today, he said PeePeeHead." He then went on and on about how, "We get in trouble if we say peepeehead; we don't say peepeehead; it's ugly to say peepeehead (etc, etc, you get the point)." It was like it felt so good to him to be able to say it without worrying about getting in trouble. It's okay to say ugly words if you're just saying that someone else said it, right? What a funny little boy. I have a feeling that I'll be consumed with "boy" moments from here on out!
**The boy in the picture with Landon is definitely not the boy in Landon's story**

You Know What They Say About Payback....

Well, Nixon finally got payback today at the daycare. This is the first time he's been on the receiving end of a biting spree. I got nervous when they told me they had some "bad news" when I walked into the doors at the daycare. But luckily, or unluckily (whichever way you choose to look at it), he didn't do anything wrong this time. Apparently, Nixon and another child were fighting over a toy. You know Nixon, he doesn't give up easily. So, anyway the child bit him on the forehead. It looks really bad, especially since he got his haircut this afternoon. You can even count how many teeth the child has! Take a look for yourself!

Chunky Monkey

I took Nixon to the doctor today for his 18 month well check. Everything is going well and for the first time since he's been born, he's out of the 10th percentile! Woo hoo! Landon was always in the 80th and 90th, so it was a big surprise when Nixon started showing up in the 10th. Anyway, I mentioned to Mr. Chris (our great PA that Nixon loves) that he had been having problems with ear infections so I wanted him to check out his ears really good. Luckily, no fluid or infection (Yea!), but he casually mentioned that he had noticed the visits and that was probably why he didn't get his shots at his 15 month well check. (Silence) I said, "Is there a 15 month check up?" He just looked at me like I was crazy and told me there was. I told him the ear infections were not the cause of that..just his moma not scheduling the appointment. I honestly do not remember a 15 month checkup with Landon and told him as much..from what I's 12...then 18 months..then you don't go back until 2 years old..oh harm done..we got the two shots today. I also mentioned in passing about Nixon being so chubby. He took up for him and said, "Come on..he's average..he's not chunky..he's in the 45 percentile for his weight..(flipping pages)...Oh...he's only in the 20th in yeah, he may appear a little chunkier than most." Oh, my chunky monkey..gets his physique straight from his moma!
