5:58:Mama! Oh yikes, an early start to the day… Jack is also stirring, but as I take Max out of the room I tell Jack its really early and he should go back to sleep (sometimes this works!). Max and I lay in my bed…
6:15 We hear Jack get up, use the bathroom and head out to play with his train track, Max hurries to follow. I lay in bed and try to close my eyes for five more min :o)
6:25 I hear max bouncing a ball on the floor (which the neighbors below don’t like, ESPECIALLY at this time of day) so I get up and take the ball away, a few tears, but then we move on. I play trains with Jack, I get to be Harvey the rescue train!

3:45 boys took a nice long nap!! Max wakes up super cranky, screaming and unhappy, I can’t figure out what he wants.. so we decide to head outside for a picnic snack and playtime at the little park here. Max is much better outside. fun time outside. I also snap a few pictures of the new shorts I made the boys. Needed photos for my blog post.
