Tomorrow my hubby is taking off for five weeks and I'm terrified!!
Not by the fact that he is leaving for five weeks. But my son has just figured out "time" and that daddy goes away for a really long time and he's not sure when he is coming back.
And that is hard for me! Because the boy tends to have the worst temper tantrums and is very abusive towards his sister and me.
I do have to say though that he has gotten better to listening to me. AND he completed a full time out without having to run back and forth for about an hour, putting him back on his chair when he leaves it and starting all over again. So it's a HUGE deal that a time out lasted 4 minutes!
So the troops took decided to go to the new park near our house. We have a park that is a spit away from our Private Married Quarters but it's so rundown we are scared for the kids to be on it!
This new park is made with Lil' Tykes equipment so it meant more for toddlers and they laid it on recycled old tired, which is great because now cats and other animals aren't using the sand as their personal washroom because there is no sand! YEAY!
And can I tell you how cushy it is?! I was expecting that rubber stuff to be hard and rough to play on but the second I step on it I felt like I was in a Dr. Scholl's commercial. I was gellin'!
My only concern is that once it gets really hot, how hot will my troops feet will get?
Hubby decided to bring out the remote control cars that he and Ducky got for Christmas. Ducky has been wanting to break that toy in for months.
And break it in he did! He took that thing down the slide and off the equipment and the car got some big air.... until he took it off the highest part of the park and it broke... in two!
I've told Cpl. Mayhem that nothing lasts in this kids hands and he wanted me to give him examples, well there it is!
The park was fun and it pretty much pooped out my troops, which is great.
I must try to do this again when hubby is gone, we will see how Ducky behaves the first time and hopefully we can make it a nice part of our evening routine before or after dinner.
As long as he looks like this at the end of the day!!
HE DID GOOD!!
