Rotten Egg

Xander likes to play "Last one is a rotten egg!" Only he doesn't quite do it right. Usually it's when we're going out to the car. He'll call out, "Last one there is a rotten egg!" Then when he gets there first, he says, "I'm a rotten e-egg, I'm a rotten e-egg." Nevermind that he's not the last one there and that being a rotten egg is something you *don't* want to be.

That was easy

We've been struggling lately with Xander's reluctance to leave the house with Hari when I'm staying home. He cries "Mommy! Mommy." It's not a fun situation. Hari gets frustrated, I get stressed, and obviously Xander gets upset.

This morning Hari took the kids to daycare/school. Xander started crying for me. Then Hari suggested both kids get their umbrellas because it was raining. Xander thought this was the best idea ever. Jessica was outside putting her shoes on while I helped him get his umbrella.

"Dad! Don't leave without me!" he cried, without a second thought of Mommy. He ran outside to join Daddy and Jessica.

Now I'm wondering if I can send him with an umbrella every time he goes out with Hari, regardless of the weather.
