Since I am on maternity leave until November I have been taking advantages of all the fun things that stay at home mom's get to do on a daily basis. One of those things is a program called MOPs (Mothers of Preschooler's) but it is really just for anyone who is a mom that has kids preschool age or younger. We meet on the second Tuesday of every month for 2 hours, they also have childcare set up for your kids as well. The first one was earlier this month and it was wonderful to have 2 hours to myself (well with Jax but he slept the entire time) doing fun activites and chatting with other moms. The sad part was that Colt cried almost the entire 2 hours he was in the daycare. I felt bad, not just for Colt but for the workers having to listen to him cry.  Apparently he cried so hard he fell asleep on the floor for a good hour but then woke up about 10 minutes before I got there and started crying again. He has also has had a really hard time going to church lately, he cries during his sunday school class unless one of us stays with him the entire time. Anyway, they also have a MOPs playdate once a month from 9-11. Today we met at the park for the first hour and let the kids play and then walked over to the firestation and did a tour. Colt loved it, he was on the move the entire time running from place to place. He got to go in the fire truck and even got to help spray the firehose. I can not believe how the kid can move, he just can not stand still. Even though there were other kids there his age it seemed like most of them would stop while the fireman was talking about something and listen. Not Colt he would listen for a second then run off to look at the next think. The nice thing was that he was very well behaved and listened to me very well he was just very interested and did not want to miss a thing so I guess I can't complain too bad about him running around so much.

Fun, fun, fun! Crew gets to do a tour through preschool this year. Colt is normal, that is good, better to be active than not. At least that is what I have to tell my self to keep my sanity!

Madi acts the same way when leave her at church or at the daycare at the YMCA. I have to leave service early....and my workouts get limited to 10 minutes (the amount of time the Y allows for a crying kid). It is super frustrating....but I tell myself.....it won't last forever.
