Do you like Paw Patrol ?

Today, as I was picking Swe-cha up from after school care, we met a boy who high-fived him. Said boy was wearing a Paw Patrol shirt.

Swe-cha: hey, do you like Paw Patrol ? (while pointing to boy's shirt)

Boy: Yeah.

Where are you ?


So S runs off and Ms B calls out to him...

Ms B: S, where are you ?

S: I'm changing!

....

later, he runs off again and Ms B calls out...

Ms B: S, where are you ?

S: I'm making yucky! (Pooping)



...

So glad that he is learning to answer now.

It does not work

S: Mom, Mom. I need help

Me: Why ?

.. he gives me the blue Kindle...

S: I need to read a book, it does not work.

Me: What book are you looking for ?

S: 50 below zero

Me: okay, so what's wrong ?

S: I need to have the next page and the previous page

... as it turns out, the app for reading the book only displays on the iOS....

Separately, he takes out a gallon of milk from the refrigerator, opens the cap and says "Mom, this will not open" (it was still sealed).

Am glad though that he is learning to explain what he wants / needs better these days.

Mom, Look at this!

My little boy has a new favorite phrase now "Mom, Mom! Look at this".

When he started saying this a few days ago, I thought it was the cutest thing. But today, I realized that all things come at a price because he just came running to me, "Mom, Mom! Look at this" and showed me his iPad. He had the browser open to eBay and had a Wii controller on the page.

S: "I need this, Mom. I really really need this."

9 to 5

Productive day today.

Hubby and I spent the day doing some spring cleaning, including the following:

- swept up the dead leaves that accumulated in the back patio from last fall.
- cleaned all the stand-fans (3)

While we were cleaning, we have Swe-cha singing 9 to 5 in the background. Can't ask for a better day :)

Sealing Gaps (Doors)

The 4th bedroom, currently designated as Swe-cha's playroon, is drafty.

VERY DRAFTY.

The insulation and sealing isn't great and its location (uppermost part of the house/attic area) isn't helping either. Worse, there is a 1.5 inch gap between the door and the floor.

When the wind is blowing or when it gets really really cold outside, I can literally feel cold wind blowing on my back if I stand in the upstairs hallway just outside of our bedrooms.

I have a draft stopper - sort of like a long beanbag - that I put against that gap to stop the draft but Swe-cha keeps going in and out of that room and NEVER puts that draft stopper back in place.

Today, I fashioned a seal made out of foam pipe insulation and it works great. This didn't cost me anything as the material is just scrap that I had left over from a previous project but if you have to buy one, it'll cost around $2 for a 6 foot long pipe insulation material.
