Opposite of Summertime Blues

Yes I know everyone hears the word "summer" and groans, but this is the first summer that I got to have fun with Gage and I'm kinda sad to see it go... not that it is really going anywhere anytime soon.

Gage's favorite things this summer (These things are actually not limited to summer):
1. "Hmm-ma" (Grandma)
2. Swimming
3. Shoes. We play the shoes on/shoes off game. All day. Every day.
4. Puzzles
5. Fruit snacks
6. Zach and/or Michelle (sorry other friends, you need to come around more...)
7. Music. Daddy claims his favorite is Protest the Hero
8. Chocolate (this is a freak phenomenon. he did not get this from anybody.)

watch out michael phelps!

Outlaw Gage

Most of you know I work mornings at Mountainside Fitness and Gage gets to play in Childcare for a couple hours during my shift-- except for the next 2 weeks because he was suspended!! My 1 and 1/2 year old angel was suspended for throwing toys at other kids' heads! Over the last month he had been written up twice, and a 3rd time is suspension.
I was really blown away when they told me cuz I just didn't think it could be real for 2 reasons: #1)Why is my Baby Gage throwing toys like he's trying out for the minor league? He is not allowed to throw! #2) He's not 5 years old! Are they seriously suspending him??
The best part is they told me that they had tried to talk to him about it-- and he didn't understand!! Well that's just crazy cuz him and I have heart to heart discussions every frickin day!! C'mon, really people?
Well, I sure hope his record is expunged in the next couple years because I'd really like to get him into a good preschool. I can't have him running around with this type of black mark on him...
