After some discussion D and I decided to make time in our schedules to spend at least one hour a week having alone time with each boy. Hopefully this will make them fight less having individual time not just family time.
Today D took G to deal with his sisters tires. She finally got them done last week so he had to put them on her truck for her. G had fun watching and helping.
K and I stayed here and got dinner started. Also, we went through cookbooks to find appetizers to make for the 2 Christmas parties that we are having.
When the guys got home I was teaching K how to play Gin. He got the idea quick and we had a blast trying to beat each other. Then G and D joined us so we played Kings in the Corner. K then wanted me to teach him how to set up solitaire. He knew how to play just couldn't remember how to set it up.
While he played cards by himself G and I played sequence.
I think this has been our problem for a while. When we sent the boys to bed today there was no fighting or whining they just went into their room and fell asleep. That never happens lol.
Tomorrow we have a doctor appointment for Z's 12 month check-up and shots. We have been betting on her weight. My guess was 18# 2oz. D is guessing 18# 8oz. K went with 20# even. G is guessing 15#. She was at 17# 9oz when she was in for her ear infection a month ago. We play by Price is Right rules so G might win lol.
I think I might pick up a new family board game for Christmas do you have any recommendations? There are 4 of us and the boys are 8 and 14 so it has to be something that they both will enjoy.
