Josie and I had some time to kill while Jack was at school on Tuesday. I had some books on hold at the library, so we spent some time in the Children's section. The difference between Jack & Josie at this age is pretty remarkable.
Jack was always running full speed through the library, trying to jump off furniture...you would have thought he was a caged animal, set free. Josie, on the other hand, is calm & easily engaged. She does puzzles, plays computer games, and works on fine motor skills.
Sometimes I catch myself thinking - "How are my children from the same parents?" But then I remember that Jack is a VERY active boy and Josie is just a typical girl.
Since we got more SNOW yesterday - we did some indoor activities. First up was a "pool party" in the tub. It's the one place they can be within a foot of each other - yet not fight. For obvious reasons, this was a much needed activity. Jack cleaned his boats and Josie played with toys.
After the pool, we had a picnic lunch in our living room (also known as the Christmas Tree room). Jack has been begging to have a "real picnic" and this was the closest we could get to that. We watched more snow fall and decided it was time for a nap.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Grandpa Denny today! Hope you have a great day! XOXO J & J
