March is here! We've made it!

I couldn't believe my eyes when I walked in Ben's room this morning, the sun was shining! And BRIGHT! It was a great start to the day. The snow and gloom has reeeeallly been wearing on me. Well, both of us I think. Ben has been feeling pretty good lately, but he's had some bad days the last few weeks, just feeling grumpy and antsy. Today when we were out on a shopping spree he was pointing to so many spring things, "Look Mommy! Birds!" "Berries on trees!" It was really cute. We're going downtown Ann Arbor tomorrow to meet Grandma Joan and Aunt Cee for lunch, it'll be nice to walk around town. Hopefully we have a little more sun.

After blueberry-strawberry pancakes we headed over to Gym America for some tumbling fun.

Of course he didn't want to leave and had a nice melt down, it was really fun having 35 parents stare at me... really? Like your kids never cry when it's time to leave a play place? Oh.

We ordered pizza for lunch, which was awesome, and short nap, then headed out on the town. I invited some friends over for a st.patty's day/spring party, and I am so excited that I went out and bought some party supplies today :) Ha! It's not for 2 weeks! Ah well, at least I'll be prepared :D

For Book Sharing Monday I wanted to share Skippyjon Jones by Judy Schachner, which I just picked up from Kiwanis over the weekend. I've seen this book around before, but never read it. Boy am I glad I grabbed it!

It is hilarious! I love the rhyming, the jokes, the voices you get to use while you read it. I'm not sure if Ben really understands the whole story, I have read it so many times now I have had the opportunity to try and explain to him that Skippyjon is pretending when he goes into his closet. It's such a cute book. Highly recommended.

  1. I'm glad Benny's feeling a bit more cheerful :) Ingrid's still snot nosed as ever...

    We're excited for the party, too!!

    And we also have read a Skippyjon Jones book, but not that one. Ingrid liked him but wouldn't believe he was a cat.
