Well, Things Haven't Quite Gone As Planned...

There was no lunch date with the hubby - he didn't wake up until 1:30pm, so that idea was a tad shot out of the water.  He didn't check into the hospital yet, either - he is going tomorrow (Monday).  I sincerely hope that he called his doctor (since he was given his cell number) to make sure that pre-admission arrangements are made, so this can all go more smoothly.  Otherwise, he's going to have a LONG wait in admissions while they try to get a hold of the doctor and find a room and bed for him.  *sigh*

Greyson had an... interesting day today.  Hubby punished him for his behavior Saturday night (while Daddy wasn't home) all because he had told him before he left that he had "better behave for Mommy," and his attitude pretty much plummeted shortly after Ralph packed up and took off for his show.  He did an amazing job of sitting on the bed, though (I still let him watch a movie).

Later on, he was made to sit in his chair (by Dad) because of not listening.  All he  had to do was apologize, and the stubborn little stinker sat there for a good 45 minutes before he would apologize... and then, only to me.  While I got the biggest hugs in the world, he said that he was "upset with Daddy because he yelled and spanked his butt."  Well, can't argue there - be we did talk about how Daddy didn't do these things while he was behaving, so it wasn't *too* fair to be upset enough to not apologize, and that if he apologized, I'm sure that Daddy would, too.

Greyson *finally* apologized to Ralph.  Ralph did not.  Eh.

On the lighter side, I have in the works a FABULOUS vacation being planned out, just me, to get away for at least a LITTLE bit, to sunny Arizona, courtesy of my BESTEST Bea.  (Love you, hon!!!)  She's covering my flight as a birthday present... and I couldn't be happier.  It's such a great gesture, that I am going to have to load myself with something *extra* special to bring along with me!!  I truly canNOT wait... but even knowing that it IS going to happen helps lighten the load a little.  I felt absolutely refreshed after visiting last March, that I know this will be great for my mind, body, and soul... and believe me, they ALL need it!  =)

Greyson is BLOWING me away EVERY. DAY. by bringing me books... and then reading him themself.  He still has a bit of trouble with BRAND new words sometimes, because those PESKY vowels have two sounds, and he can't always decide which one is the *right* one.  I mean, C'MON!  Who made up THAT rule anyways?!?  hehehehe

I will have to scan and post a letter he wrote me...  Greyson Loves Mom.  Is that enough to melt your heart, or what?  I constantly find pieces of paper around the house adorned with his adorable rendition of his name... and am SOOO proud of how well he has developed in forming his letters, with little help at all!!!  SOMEONE is helping this kid out, once again...  I suppose I may be able to look at the stars and thank my grandma, my mother-in-law, and my Mamaw...  I'm sure it's not the first time, and I can pretty much be assured it's not the last.  =)

SO, we are starting a new week... a HECTIC week, as one would have it, but a NEW week anyhow... we'll see how this one pans out!  *crossing fingers*  It's almost ALWAYS an issue when Grey KNOWS that Daddy is not going to be around, as apparently, he has taken the role of "The Punisher" now in Grey's mind, and Mommy is one whose buttons need to be pushed, prodded, and sometimes JAMMED, just to see what he can get away with.  Nice to know that SOME part of him is truly still three, as frustrating as that is daily anyhow!!!

I *do* need to fill out the paperwork to enroll him in our school district's preschool program... and then will come "the testing."  I'm almost afraid to hear what they will tell me, especially knowing most of the psychologists in the school system!!!  I'm sure that the entire process will be an adventure!!! =P
