Have I mentioned how IN-LOVE I am with Instagram? I know I have, and if you follow me, you’ll see my posts blow up on the weekends. This past weekend was no exception.
Our weekend started a bit early, as Mr. Avery had to stay home sick Friday. So we had some nice morning snuggles…
He’s such a good stacker! And I love these little plastic things, they don’t hurt like the wooden blocks do when he starts throwing them!
Saturday morning started bright and early with some much needed Fixin’
We have safety locks on the cabinets under the kitchen sink, and these things were not cheap. You screw them into the cabinet door and base of the cabinet, so they lock when closed, preventing curious little toddler hands from grabbing the trash or cleaning products. However, our little toddler thinks he’s the Hulk and pulls and bangs these doors over and over and over, until the latches break! This musta been the upteenth time we’ve replaced them. Now I know why they come in packs of 20+.
Then we were off to Costco! Our sick little guy fell asleep on the way there and snoozed the whole trip, only to wake up just in time to eat a hot dog on the way out… oh and he had to inspect the goodies we bought…
At snack time, Avery ate a treat from his pen pal, Annabel, in Texas. There was a card, some beautiful artwork, stickers, and a fruit strip!
So, on Sunday it was only fitting that we went shopping for a card and stickers to send back to her. Avery made some artwork of his own…
More on that later…. I don’t want to share pictures of their cards to each other until ours reaches Texas this week!
And we ended the weekend with a new money-bank for Avery. He had a ceramic penguin, but they tend to smash into a thousand pieces when toddlers drop them (yep, totally happened-and i should mention that it was my bank from when i was a teen). So when I was out shopping with Erin on Saturday and found this bank for $2.99, I couldn’t resist.
Avery was quite happy to transfer his money from the temp yogurt container that’s been housing his cash the past few months.
Do your kids have money-banks? What do you do when it gets full – cash it in to buy a toy, or put it in savings? Avery’s is getting very full!
