Catching up

We have been so busy lately that I have fallen behind in blogging. Boo has been up to so many new things lately. He is really talking a lot, repeating, saying bigger words like "medicine" and putting words together, like "momma's coffee" "Chesley's coffee" "daddy's coffee". Daddy has been working a lot lately due to some problems at the refinery. Hopefully he will get to stay home today. He has also been working hard on getting the landscaping finished so we can list the house on the real estate market. We are so close! I spent 4 hours Friday cleaning out closets and organizing the house. It's still far from perfect, but I think it's good enough to list now. As soon as Nathan finishes the front flower beds, maybe today, I will take the pictures and make the listing. I'm still nervous about people coming in and out of our house, and I'm not sure how it will work out with actually living in the house and having a small child. But we will take it one day at a time. We are planning on using for a flat fee MLS listing. I just can't see having to pay 6% to agents. I hope we are doing the right thing. We are going to do a lock box for buyer's agents to use, but if someone wants to come without an agent, one of us will have to leave work. Sales in the price range we are going to be in seem kind of slow right now, but our house is unique and will be priced low for the amount of square footage.

A big problem we are having right now... BITING HITTING!!! Boo really doesn't understand why he can't always have his way. I mean he really doesn't understand. He just hits and bites whoever gets in his way. He can't control himself. I really hope and pray this eases off or he's going to get kicked out of daycare. And nobody will want to play with him. We have been spending a lot of time with the neighbors that have 6 kids, including 2 boys Chesley's age. He is so mean to them! He bit one of them yesterday. I felt so horrible. I try time out, but it doesn't seem to bother him. I try to reserve spanking for when absolutely necessary, because if I hit him, he hits me... So I feel at a loss for controlling my own child. I know that this is a difficult age. I'm sure we will survive. I do try my best.

  1. Sorry about the biting and hitting thing. I've never had to deal with it so I don't have any gems of advice. I hope you are right and it's just a phase he'll soon get out of.

    Congrats on such a great vocabulary! Karl still isn't talking. He's only got a handful of words "mama", "hot", "shoes", "fish", etc. The pediatrician mentioned he should go into speech therapy if he still isn't talking by age two. At the rate we're going, I see speech therapy in his near future.
