Madison has been very affectionate and loving since mommy has left on her trip. Lots of “I love you”, hugs and “awwwe”. This morning was a first after daddy got ready for work and made madi breakfast, madi looked up and said “daddy, you smell good”. What a kid …
Speaking of mommy on her trip. Katherine has made time to miraculously send daily cards for madi to read, which she is very appreciative of.
After breakfast we walked jack over to pam and Medford so we could head to MOD. Madi had a super fan (mimi) watching today’s lesson.
After a break in the afternoon it was off to the village for some improvised physio. ..
The day ended with Madi returning home to see best buds jack and Owen playing in the family room.
Thank you to everyone for their help so far! We are almost halfway until katherine is home and takes back the blog! Haha
Madi and Jack had a pretty low key day. With just over a week til school again, I guess that’s ok.
When asked what madi did today her answer was “nothing”.
Both kids woke up to Nana at the house so daddy could go to work. Then they spent the afternoon at pam and Medford. Madison was very excited to show daddy her new trick – of standing next to the couch and jumping onto pillows on the floor.
The day ended shortly after as madi didn’t nap and today is her only “off” day. Back to march of dimes tomorrow.
Day 543 and it’s about time we had a post by daddy!
With Mommy in Brazil this week the kids are running the house and Daddy is along for the ride.
Today started bright and early as jack had a 730am appointment with Eric to fix his helmet.
Eric is still not pleased so we will be back.
That early morning appointment proved to be a bit much for Madi as she snooze the whole way home.
After a quick power nap it was off to march of dimes for 1 hour of fun.
The day winded down with some time with Nana and finally Emily. Mommy, Daddy and Madi are sad to say tonight is Emily last night as she is heading off to school. Mondays truly won’t be the same. Thank you Emily for all your time and love you’ve showed madi.
Mommy is off to Brazil for 8 days to coach Ruby! She is going to miss everyone so much but is excited to meet other synchro coaches and AWD swimmers and bring lots of good info back to share. Madison will be busy with camp this week and lots of time with family and friends. Daddy will try his best to keep up with the blog so please send any photos to him. Thank you everyone for all the help!
Madi and Jack had a great day with Nana. They played a shopping cart game, did puzzles, made cookies and read lots of books.
Madi is honoured to be a part of the March of Dimes mail out campaign once again. The last mail out she did was so successful they asked for another. This mail out recaps her last year of therapy and how far she has come.
Madi & Jack spent their morning with Pam and Medford while Mommy took some much needed Mommy time and got a hair cut. Madi showed Pam her new bear puzzle and played with Jack and his toys. They had a great time and didn’t want to leave.
Later in the day they visited Grandview to see Kate. She had a table with different activities all set up for Madison so she could play and work on her fine motor skills while Jack had his stretching session. Mommy and Kate stretched Jacks neck for about 20 minutes while Madi played . The whole stretching session was noisy with screaming and Madi was a great big sister and kept repeating “it’s ok bud, it’s ok Jack” while she played.
On their way home they stopped off to pick out a new backpack. Madi starts her second year of pre school in a few weeks and decided she wanted a new backpack for a new year. After narrowing down many choices she chose a unicorn with matching lunch bag. She named her bag Joe.
