After a long weekend of wedding activities I gave Aiden some fruit chews. He knows that he is not allowed red dye... so he separated out the red ones asking me about the orange ones. I told him they were OK and he said "they just have a little bit of red, right".
We finally got home and he was in quite the mood. While in the shower he got very upset by my washing his hair and had a melt down. After realizing he was over reacting he covered his face with this hands and cried "I should never had eaten the orange ones!!". I started to laugh then took it back... knowing that would cause another meltdown.
Exhaustion in a 5 year old can be funny... at times....

I hope to think of things and post pics to make up for the past few months and then keep up with the current. A is doing well in school. We has an "issue" the beginning of the summer where he needed to take some time off from school (ok. he got suspended for two weeks). I don't know if it was something going on with him or with everything going on a home it was causing him to act out. Either way, he is doing much better now and has moved up to Ms. Monicas class (4 year olds). He will soon be in Mr. Samuels class where they really turn and start preparing them for kindergarten. Can you believe he will be in kindergarten next year? He is so smart. They are sending home homework at preschool. I can't decide it if is more to get him ready for the routine or me. Homework has never been my thing.
One Aiden-ism I will add is that he has started saying "yessssss" when he gets excited over something. Its quiet and kinda under his breath but it is so cute. I always hear it on Saturday morning when he gets up "Mommy, do I have to go to school today?" When I tell him "no" I get the cutest "yessssssssss" as he heads downstairs.
He also has gotten quite good at taking pictures. I will also post some "from the eyes of Aiden" pics.
Lets hope I can keep this going this time!!

I have no idea what Aiden is doing here... well, he is racing his car.... in circles and circles and circles... he had been going round and round, tripping over the same pillows for about 5 minutes before I picked up the camera. The table he is racing on was made by Alan's Dad... Alan had a table just like this one growing up and he said that he use to do the same thing. The long narrow part was the country roads and the wider shorter part was the highway. I don't know that Aiden's thinking was that technical but he sure enjoyed racing in circles.. with a few bits of silliness in between.
Aiden found a small note pad the other night. He picked it up and started mumbling to himself for a few minutes... he then asked for something to write with so I got him a crayon. We were upstairs in my bedroom and he got up on the bed to talk to me. With the notepad in one hand and the crayon in the other... "mommy, what happened to the bath tub?". I had just poured cleaner in it and ran some water so I told him it was dirty so I had cleaned it. He looked at his notepad, scribbled something saying "cleaned it" and flipped the page. "Mommy, what happened to the potty?". I had not done anything to the potty so I said that I cleaned it also. He scribbled on the paper and said "cleaned it". Flipped the page "Mommy, what happened to the bath tub?". He had just asked this so I came up with something different "I took a bath". Scribbled and repeated "took a bath"... flipped page. "Mommy, what happened to the potty"...... you get the idea where this is going. We went through several pages of "what happened" with the potty and the bathtub. I decided to take him downstairs to interview Alan. He went into the exact same questions. Finally he switched to "Mommy, what happened to Patrick?" (character from Spongebob) and "Mommy, what happened to Spongebob?" We went back and fourth with these questions for a while. Alan and I were coming up with different answers and he scribbled the on his note pad. About half way through his "interview" I counted 37 pages that he had scribbled on. Some had been used twice.
I have no idea how many questions we were asked (or should I say how many times we were asked the same questions) but I get the feeling he got his investigative skills from his father!

Aiden: (Looking through a Party City magazine)A football player
Me: *SCORE* $9.99... easy!
a week later...
Me: Aiden are you looking forward to being a football player for Halloween?
Aiden: No, I want to be Blue Lightening McQueen
Me: Ok, Lightening McQueen?
Aiden: No, BLUE Lightening McQueen!!!
Me: I don't think I saw that one in the Party City magazine.... oh no...
We had to go old school, get dirty and creative this year. I put Maddie in charge... well, she put herself in charge letting me know that she didn't think I could handle this task on my own. A cardboard box, printed out logo's and paint were gathered and "BLUE" Lightening McQueen was born... (for those of you who don't know who the "blue" one is... in the movie "Cars" there was about a 30 second daydream by the main character Lightening where he wanted to be sponsored by Dinoco where his car would then be painted blue instead of red)
Pretty awesome right??? Aiden was so excited he loved his Blue Lightening McQueen (thank you Maddie!!). He even took it to school for Character Day.
Would he wear it to go trick-or-treating??? Nooooo...... he didn't want to go to a single door, carry his bucket or get candy... he wanted to give out the candy...
He got very excited when he saw other trick-or-treaters coming to the door... can't say he is much for showing his emotions when they got there...
this kid... a mind of his own already!! We will see how next year goes!
