I taught Seth to spell and write his name, he was pretty stoked about it!

They both loved them

They played endless hours of cops and bad guys, trains and cars, and every other boy thing you can imagine.
But after two weeks I was dying. Maizy was waking up every 3 hours to nurse at night still. And I could never sleep in or get a nap. They started to act more like siblings (squabbling all the time) then cousins that are excited to see each other. Having Seth here meant I got no breaks, ever. Not during nap time, not during preschool, never. Seth for some reason also felt he always needed to know where I was. If I went upstairs to have maybe five minutes of peace, or put Maizy down for a nap, or take care of something , he'd be following behind trying to see where I was. He and Croix could be playing and I'd head to the bathroom only to hear him say "Let's find Terina". I found myself one day thinking "CAN I NOT JUST POOP IN PEACE!!!!!". I also don't really have room for three car seats in the back of my Altima. I managed to squeeze them in there but really it doesn't work. To say the least it was making my already stressful life even more stressful. I love Trenton and I love Seth but I was very happy to hear that Trenton had found other child care. It made having just two kids again seem a lot more manageable. Good thing too because right after that is when Maizy got really bad again.
I still help out and watch Seth one day a week. He also comes over on Sunday and goes to church with us. If Trenton is working on Sunday it's a full day, if not it's just for church. One day is perfect! I do love seeing Croix have so much fun with his cousin!
