It's been awhile...Part 1

I have a hard time actually posting the blogs that are written in my head. I really need to get better at it. I apologize. I have been doing stuff-really-I'm not just sitting around the house eating bonbons. Really! I'm not.

So first. Tomorrow, Truck will be 4. Where the heck does time go?! I know, I know. So many of my friends have told me in the past that it goes fast, and I was like, yeah, whatever. Ha. Little did I know.

My little man is growing up so quickly, using a vocabulary with words like articulated, plushy, and stabilize. I can thank the internet for those. He enjoys watching "red videos" (YouTube for Kids) in the morning when he first wakes up and again before bed. (And during the day when he's allowed.) He watches all kinds of videos, Transformers have been his favorite as of lately, but we also have a "healthy" does of surprise egg videos, unboxing videos, blind bag videos, and just videos about toys. There are channels I wish he wouldn't watch, the folks are annoying. But no, he watches them and learns all about some toy that he needs to have, never mind that it is either 1.) really expensive or 2.) no longer an option to buy at the store, making it really expensive. He also watches adults playing kids board games and I'm guessing collectors talk about the different Hot Wheels that they've found. I never know what for sure he will be watching.

He isn't excited about turning 4 though. Why? Well, it's complicated. Not really. But to him it is. When we were talking about growing up and being potty trained when he was four. He took that to mean the day he turns 4 he has to go potty on the potty all the time. (Make no mistake, he can do it-he was very close when he was 2.) So now, he has stressed himself out. I hate seeing him upset. I know some of it has to do with some sensory issues we've been working on, but the rest, well, that's all him. I'm a little apprehensive of what will happen when he wakes up in the morning...

I want to add more info about C and what's been going on with him, but alas, he has woke up (it's 11PM) and he wants my computer. So, I need to shut down for now to get him to sleep. Hopefully I will get an update up in the next day or so...
