Can anyone (other than Ray and Noah) finish the lyrics for me?!? If you can then you your children are as hooked on Phineas and Ferb as we are Noah is. I had seen an episode back before we got rid of cable (almost a year ago), but Noah was too young, so it didn’t catch on here in the Krause house… until last week that is. Now we are hooked. Ray mentioned that it reminds him of the Saturday morning cartoons that we grew up with as kids, and I have to agree. The Saturday morning cartoons now just aren’t the same… you would think that they would have gotten better with time, but unfortunately that’s not the case. So now we watch Phineas and Ferb on Netflix streaming and love it. You just have to say those 5 words up there and Noah looks up and says “Dat Finus and Ferb music?!?!” Ahhhh our little junkie!! 😉
It seems like from one day to the next he just decided to grow up. He is copying what we say a lot more now… not always a good thing!! Thanks to him I found out that I say “I said yes” and “I don’t want to hear any whining” far too often… maybe if he wouldn’t always say “no”… hmm…
I feel like he is in an extremely picky eating stage right now… he was picky to begin with, but it has gotten 100 times worse. It is a fight to just get him to eat anything at some meals, even his favorite foods. Someone please tell me that this phase ends soon and won’t last until he’s 12… right at the age where he starts eating us out of house and home!
Noah alternates between wanting to be a big boy and a little boy right now… it all depends on what we are doing and how it will best fit his needs. It’s so cute! We were at Old Navy today and he saw a shirt that he liked, but it was too small. I told him that and he replied “But I wittle boy!” a few minutes later he found another shirt – this time too big – when he found out it was too big for him “But I big boy, right?” I couldn’t win either way!
Potty training… ahhhh the thorn in my side! There are days, like yesterday and today (knocking on wood ), where he does great. He may put up a fuss when I want to put him on the potty (just so that he tries), but he always does something and looks forward to the potty treat (Pez). Then there are other times where he will tell us he doesn’t have to go or he may go a little on the toilet, but then 5 minutes later he will go again in his pants *sigh* He tells me that diapers are for babies and that he’s a big boy, so I know that he wants to be out of them but it seems that he still has a hard time “feeling” when he has to go before it’s too late… though the past two days have been better… he stopped himself after just a dribble and we made it to the bathroom to finish… I can deal with a dribble – it’s the floods that I don’t care for.
I bet you really love hearing all of the ins and outs of potty training don’t you? I guess I’m just a little frustrated about it all because he learned to go poo on the toilet so quickly and has been great with that for the past 15-16 months so I thought when the time came to be “dry” it would go just as easily… guess I was wrong. It’s okay though – he’ll be completely out of diapers soon enough at some point, I mean, you don’t any grown adults running around with them on… well most of the time anyway 😉
