This was vacation week so each child got a day with me.

Monday's Child-Fair of Face-went to  Aidan.  In the morning he had his first trip to the dentist where he got his teeth cleaned.  Then when we got home the County Probate Court called and wanted to see some of his documents in person, so we drove to the capital and showed them, then went sledding at my sister's house before coming home.

Tuesday's Child-Full of Grace-went to RB.  We just hung out here at home and played together, then went and picked Aidan up in the afternoon.

Wednesday's Child-Full of Woe-went to BB.  He was excellent and seemed to have a great time with Grammie, though his poor mother had an absessed wisdom tooth (she has never had a cavity, so imagine her fear-having to have novacaine for the first time at 20 something!).  Aidan stayed home as well.

Thursday's Child-Far to Go-went to MB.  He is a little dumpling and except for a couple of crying jags, was very content.  Aidan stayed home as well. It was a good thing I kept the baby's car seat, because Aidan turned out to have an infection so we had to make a trip to see the doctor in the afternoon.

Friday's Child-Loving and Giving-went to LB. We went to breakfast with G, went shopping for jeans, then she and I went to the movies and saw "Taken" with Liam Neeson, then went shopping for a few things, then picked up both  Aidan and RB at daycare.

Now, on the whole child rhyme, if Aidan's estimated birth date is correct, he was a Wednesday's child-Full of Woe.  How sad is that?  Trust me that it doesn't fit him now-he is as happy and hyper as any other four year old boy!

Some pics are below, but I didn't get the camera out when RB was here.

 
 

Today we went out shopping for groceries and all that good stuff, and Aidan got a new pair of shoes with Spiderman on the side (he calls him Space Man).  So now he is jumping everywhere-jumping in place, jumping out of the kitchen (the kitchen is raised), jumping off the stairs, etc.  Obviously he loves them.

During our outing I discovered that my license is missing.  We were at the bank getting a copy of his passport and visa photocopied and certified in order to validate his adoption and get a new birth certificate.  I went to get my license and it wasn't there.  Unfortunately, I had just removed my passport from the case that I took-normally mine would be with his-so that can't get done until Tuesday when the banks and post office open again.

Aidan has been talking a lot this week about Santa coming to town, Santa bringing presents, and having presents at his house.  I don't know if it's just the Valentine's Day holiday and the party atmosphere, but he was a little preoccupied with Christmas until Friday.  Then he got a bag full of cards at daycare with lollipops and candies, and Christmas has been  temporarily forgotten.

PB is the assistant director at the daycare that Aidan goes to, and she makes a photo listing for events like this.  So a couple of Aidan's cards had his photo on the envelope, which was really sweet.  He, himself, gave Sponge Bob cards out.
