some nights are really rough..
Pam and I were both BEAT tonight...we barely made it through dinner, bed-time, etc.

everything took longer than usual, we let Quinn watch all of Monsters, inc. while we vegged out exhaustedly.

finally, finally, I got my tired butt around to bath-time and bed-time rituals..and of course Quinn was all full of soup and wanted to stay up.

10:00 p.m. and he finally collapsed--a little unwillingly, but you could see in his eyes he was beyond ready...I think he knows it, too--he just resists.

I probably shouldn't tell you this right now, but he sounds a lot like Katie. And she is STILL fighting sleep at 12 years old, for fear that she'll miss SOMETHING.

Quinn...

(Link)
Is just becoming such a great little _ person _.

I really love him.

Don't get me wrong. He's two. He yells. He hits. He tantrums and throws his head against the bottom of the bath tub when he's told the water will _ not _ be refilled tonight so he can swim. (Note: this one appeared to really hurt...maybe the negative reinforcement will drive in the lesson that one's voluntary muscle motions should not be used to drive one's own head forcefully into solid objects).

(* but it feels so good when I stop *)

In between the moments of two-ness, he's just this amazing, great, loving, fantastic, smart, thoughtful, courteous (YES, courteous!) little person!

Kids = People. I wish more people got that :-)

Katie is one of my favorite people. Spending time with her is one of the best parts of homeschooling!
