Broken Record

Here's just a small sampling of what I say, over and over....all day long:

"AJ, please sit down. AJ, sit down. AJ, I don't want to tell you again, you have to sit down".

"AJ, be gentle. Don't hurt Buster. Please be gentle. Gentle, Gentle AJ. Go give Buster hugs and kisses and tell him you're sorry"

"We don't hit Mommy. That hurts Mommy. Be Gentle"

"Honey, do you want a bite (insert any type of food)?"

"Please be careful honey".

"Can I have a hug and a kiss?"

"AJ, honey, I love you" to which he replies "MUAH!" :)

"Group" Christmas Party

For the past few years our "group" of friends has had a Christmas party in December. One family hosts the party- with kids- and we do a kids gift exchange. Last year we started an ornament exchange with the women and a beer exchange for the men. We always have a GREAT time and each year it gets more and more fun! This year, Kris & Joy offered to host. For me, it was awesome because AJ is old enough now to be totally entertained by all the older kids and they still really enjoy playing with him. He loves to play Barbie with the girls and has learned to play Star Wars with the boys. Here are a few pictures:
