Last night in a desperate attempt to keep Ryan from getting out of his bed, I convinced him that he couldn't go to school today if he got out of bed. He loves school, so he was concerned at the thought of missing it.
Wouldn't you know that today ends up being the second snow day in a row here. You can still see the grass through the snow dusting, so there isn't even enough to go play with. Now I feel like a mean mother. Thankfully he hasn't objected about the no school thing yet, so maybe this will work out in my favor and he'll stay in bed tonight too.

I think Ryan sleep talks. Last night around 3:30 a.m. I heard him letting out a cry. I went in there to check on him and he is sitting up. He says, "Momma, I'll be a good boy; I want to eat ice cream." I told him no and to lay down. As soon as his head hit the pillow he was sleeping again. I whispered that I loved him and he said, "apple juice?" and I said no and left. I'm fairly certain he was sleeping through that conversation. He's too cute.

Yesterday I had a meeting on post. Thankfully it wasn't canceled with the post opening at a 2 hour delay. I dropped the kids off at the cdc (child care), and they did pretty well by the way. Ryan is an absolute angel when he is at school or daycare (much different than at home!). Sean cries a lot, but he did survive. I had such high hopes for my meeting that I would find out some really important answers about this deployment, but alas, why did I even think I would get answers. This is the Army I'm dealing with, isn't it? 3.5 more weeks until I hear the answers I'm waiting on....I guess that gives me more time to hope and wish it goes the way I want.

Sean is a fuss monster today. I was so hoping it would be a quick day, but I have the feeling this one is going to feel LONG. At least it's a busy week so hopefully it passes quickly.
Have a good day everyone!

I seriously laughed out loud about the school thing because I have used it a time or two with my little girl. Since hubby left she has made a habit of getting out of bed. It worked =)

We are still out of school for the snow and will be on Wednesday as well...getting some serious cabin fever.

Hope you get the answers you need soon
