So Mike is suppose to be working nights this week, but so far has only had to stay the whole night once. I love the idea of him only working 4 hours in the evening. I have been able to take a nap (i had a cold, so it was needed), we have gone to the park as a family, and Mike was able to work on the car. Funny story. Both cars needed oil changes. Mike has always done them, but I offered to just take them in this time. He decided to do it himself again and accidentally stripped the bolt that holds the oil in the Jeep, causing him to replace the whole oil pan. Luckily, there is a new member in the ward that was so nice to help him do it. But of course, car maintenance is never as easy as you plan and the whole thing had to be redone. He was a good spot about it, plus Maggie was able to "help" the second time.
Maggie is "helping" Mike. She tells him all the different sounds she hears, makes him "Nancy Soup" (from Fancy Nancy), and hands him whatever tool she thinks he might needs. Having a 2 year old around when working on cars might seem to add to the stress, but when they are saying, "Daddy, I love you so much." the situation doesn't seem so frustrating.
Mike was so dirty afterwards. It was gross.
Sam is getting so close to sitting up. I can't wait for that milestone because it opens a whole new world to them when they can sit up and pull things out of baskets and boxes.
Maggie is chilling in Sam's car seat while wearing her Ariel costume that is half finished for Halloween. After her Christmas dress, I told myself that I would never use glitter fabric again. Broke that promise. Now we have green glitter EVERYWHERE. Now it is all over the car seat which covers Sam every time he gets in.
