Winnie the Pooh

The kids and I went to our first movie in the theater today.  Winnie the Pooh.  This was a practice run for the kids because their preschool is going to see Winnie the Pooh tomorrow.  Why would I take them to the exact movie they are going to tomorrow?  Because both of our kids get scared of movies.  Seems crazy, I know!  Last weekend, for example, Kayley was watching Finding Nemo on the portable DVD player while we were driving to Omaha.  All of a sudden the burst into tears and asked to shut it off.  I took the DVD player and it was the dentist scene.  I told her it was just pretend and that everyone is ok.  She took it back only to have the same reaction about 5 minutes later. 

So, in an effort to ease any trouble for their teachers tomorrow, I spent $33 on movie tickets, soda and popcorn to take them to the same movie they will see tomorrow.  And they did great!  Of course, Winnie the Pooh doesn't exactly have any scary parts!

We spent the rest of today around the house because it rained off and on all day.  This afternoon Kayley was naughty and got a timeout.  When her timeout was over I explained to her again why she had a timeout and told her that if she said she was sorry she could get down and go play.  She just stared at me.  I asked her if she wanted to say sorry and go play or if she wanted to sit in the chair longer.  She pointed to the chair!  I asked her again if she wanted to say sorry and get down and go play and she shook her head no.  This child likes to test us every step of the way!  I told her fine and put her back in the chair.  She sat there quietly for 5 minutes or so and then looked over at me and smiled.  I asked if she wanted to get down and she shook her head yes.  I asked her what she needed to say and she said sorry and happily jumped down and ran off to play. 

I didn't take many pictures this week, but here are a few of Kayley vacuuming and Drew running the dust buster this morning.  They still love to help me clean!  I am not complaining.  Hope this lasts for another 15 years or so.  Ha!  Maybe I better just enjoy it while it lasts.

Yeah, she is using the attachment for the carpet...

Cleaning up around Kayley's chair.  Lots to clean up!

And a few pictures from Easter just because.
