First Book Report

Cole worked so hard on this book report. He read the book and then carefully planned the pictures and what words he was going to write for each section. Mama did have to help a bit with drawing the house, but Cole did all the printing and colouring himself. He was a great supervisor.

First Burn

First BurnWe knew something was wrong last night when Cole put Daddy’s PSP down on the stove and then ran very quickly out of the kitchen clutching at his hand. I lunged for Cole and Daddy lunged for the PSP. It turns out that the burner was still hot and Cole had burned his finger. Thankfully the finger will heal, the PSP case is a write off.

We quickly ran his finger under cold water for much longer than he wanted, then put Poly on it while I sent Reiki to the burn. He had a pretty rough night but can play without thinking of it today, unless he looks down and sees the burn. He’ll think twice about touching the stove right after dinner is cooked now I”m sure!

First Brand New Bike

Cole was riding his bike at the playground today and I noticed that the seat was too low and the handlebars were too low. Daddy and I decided that we would take Cole and the bike to Cap’s Bicycle Shop and get it properly fitted. We knew he was starting to outgrow his first bike and had tried him out on a few 20″ bikes already. However, they all seemed too big, or had gears which he isn’t ready for. So we figured we’d just get his existing bike fitted properly and wait till next year for a new bike.

Well, that’s not exactly what happened. The sales guy at Cap’s was happy to adjust Cole’s bike for him and then he and I went into the little room with all the kids bikes to look at ‘the next size up.’ All I wanted was to get an idea of when Cole might be ready for the 20″ bike. They happened to have a very nice looking red 20″ bike just waiting for a test drive. Cole took it out and after a bit of adjusting we, the sales guy and I, noticed that it fit him better than his old bike. After a quick call to Daddy it was decided that Cole would be going home with not 1 but 2 bikes that day. Can we say HAPPY?!?!

Cole's New BikeHere he is back on the playground showing off his fancy new bike, gotta love his grin.
