Busy Morning

Some days we're in our pjs until noon...and other days, it feels as though we fit a week's worth of activity into one morning. Today was the latter type of day. Our exterminator arrived at 8:45 to do our quarterly anti-bug treatment (much to Tom's delight!). As soon as she left, we jumped in the car and headed to art group. Art group is a weekly toddler art gathering that one of my friends' dreamed up. There are 5 of us who rotate houses and whoever hosts also plans the art activities. I wasn't sure about the whole idea when we started but it has turned into one of the highlights of our week. Art projects with a 2 year old can be intimidating so it's nice to have moral support. Caedmon thoroughly enjoyed painting his Christmas ornaments...so much so that he threw a tantrum when I dragged him away from the table to head to the next event on the day's agenda - a swim lesson. Swim lessons are usually on Wednesdays but this week we scheduled a private lesson to make up for the week we missed while in Greece. Caedmon is a fantastic swimmer but he's been struggling the past few weeks. We weren't sure exactly what the issue was but as I suspected, it seems to be a 2 year old emotional thing - trying to control the situation - and not really a skill issue. I thought it was going to be a 30 minute lesson but his teacher spent closer to an hour with him. By the time we were back in the car, it was noon so I ordered takeout from a nearby cafe. After grabbing our lunch and piling back into the car, I realized that there was a good chance Caedmon would not stay awake on the car ride home so I decided to give him his grilled cheese sandwich. I thought this would keep him awake for the 5 minute drive home...but as you can see from the picture, my little man was worn out!
