Weekend review...

We had a fairly great weekend. Some old friends of ours who had a band in the late 90's got back together for a "one last hurrah" reunion show Saturday night at a seedy sports bar up where the in-laws live. So after the kids were tucked into bed at Grandma's house, we slipped out for a few hours of kid-free time for the first time in far too long.

Yesterday we took the kids to the movies. Toy Story 3 was a-mazing. We opted to see it in 2D since we were taking both kids. They were both pretty well-behaved, but then again, we kept a steady, yet very controlled stream of smuggled-in M&Ms and Junior Mints flowing. ;)

Ashley freaked out multiple times yesterday. Like complete screaming meltdown, complete with hysterics. The last/worst one was because she wouldn't go into or stay in the Learning Tower. I draw the line when I am dealing with boiling water. Must stay safe. I ended up putting her in her room (with a baby gate) and just letting her scream for a few minutes while I finished making dinner for the kids.

So, yeah. I am trying to keep from being driven nuts by these kids this summer. It's not working out quite so well so far.

The good news is, I lost another almost 3 pounds in the last week. Down 28.6 since March! :)
