Omg. What a morning!!! So we got to school early today so I brought Morgan and Ryan to the big family bathroom so I could nurse the baby. Ryan decides he has to poop. So he's doing his business and all of the sudden the automatic toilet flushes and scares the crap out of him. Literally!! He jumped off the toilet so fast with a giant poop hanging out of his butt!!! I've got Morgan attached to my boob so I jump up and grab him so he doesn't fall. The poop falls down and lands on the floor which I now have to pick up and get back into the toilet. And then convince him to go back on and finish his business. Lovely. We finally get all cleaned up and situated and head to his classroom and over the loudspeaker comes on an announcement that there's an emergency in the infant room. So scary. People are running in from everywhere. People from the pool in bathing suits, people all sweaty from the gym. Basically anyone wth medical experience I guess. So chaotic and scary. Everyone's ok. Turns out it wasn't a kid, one of the teachers was having trouble breathing but she's fine. Ryan in his class. Morgan in the playroom. I'm in the gym. Everyone ok. It's 9:08 and I'm ready for a drink!!!

Chinese New Year

This year we celebrated Chinese New Year in Brooklyn at Richard and Marilyn's home. Susanna was home from college and the boys had so much fun hanging out with her and Sophie. Our family now consists of two snakes, a goat, a tiger and a monkey.

Quality time

It's very rare for me to have any one on one time with Nathan. There's usually a little brother or a baby sister hogging most of my attention. So when I get the chance to hang out with him solo, I make the most of it. I had the opportunity to pick him up from school yesterday  without Morgan and Ryan in tow so rather than go home, I drove us to our favorite coffee shop where we ordered cupcakes , grabbed a window seat and sat and talked about all the cars driving by. His favorite thing to do is talk about cars! And talking about his favorite things is my favorite thing!
