That's what boys do...

Lots of little things happening..so this story is about everything he does..or what he says.
Yesterday, we were making salt dough ornaments for tree, he saw how I put some flour on the counter first before I rolled the dough.  Door bell rang, I stepped out for bit..
Came back to find all my kitchen countertops covered with flour and Cory was doing "flour" finger painting...groannnn  (if you recall how big my kitchen is..all five countertop!)

At school, few days ago..Santa came to stop by at Cory's preschool. Judy and kids are leaving a plate of cookies and milk for SANTA.   Judy told the kids that Santa is coming to stop by.   Cory thought about this for a moment..he looked up on the ceiling and said 'OH NO!!"  I'm like what????  Cory said "Santa come through the chinmey?  from rooftop?".  I already know where he is coming from.  Had to hold a chuckle here.   He said "where's the fireplace?"  Needless, the center doesn't have one.   I told him to tell the teacher..let her figure this one out .  heheh.   I know at times, Cory isn't satisfied with answers if it doesn't make sense.   Teacher told him that Santa is magic..he will find a way in.   Seems ok with that answer..Cory did said that he wants to stay and watch.  But I told him that Santa won't come if you're watching...he took off running.

We read him a lot of Christmas story, the one "Santa is Coming to Town"..its like a song book.  When I read the part about Santa knows when you're sleeping or awake..so I told him that Santa won't come if you're awake.  Other day, Cory was talking about how he is gonna sneak and watch so he can "catch" Santa when he comes.  So I figured it's time to read that story...
when I told him about the part that Santa knows when you're sleeping or awake..so better go to sleep .  He looked at me with sad look, "Okkk".  Then the part when I sang.."he knows when you have been naughty or nice.."  He says "Okk" again.  It was hilarous to see how he sounds so sad. 

If a present came (in mail) or from an certain person..Cory will think it's Christmas time.  Then when I tell him..not yet.  He gets so upset.  jeeezzz     Few days ago, I finally did gift wrappings and put them under the tree, Cory noticed it right away when he got up in the morning.  He say "yay!!!!!!!!!" and then he ran to the stockings and tried to see if there's anything in it.   You should see the look on his face!  He said "Santa FORGOT!!!!!"  duh!   oh boy..I had to explain this one to him...lol.   We got our his calendar and explained all that to him.

We did had the chocolate advent calendar..but he ate it all!  It was a mistake on my part because I did put it away each day so he will only have one..but when I forget..we had to catch up few days so therefore, he had more than one chocolate.  So later, he helped himself ...  why not?

Speaking of climbing..we have tried so hard not to let Cory knows that he has a bunk bed above his bed..but one day I came to his room, he was on top of it!!!  I'm like HOW did he get up there??????   I had to know.   Instead of getting upset..I said "wow..how did you get up there???  show mommy!"   I took him down and said "Show it to me.."  (this is pretty shocking...)  He got up by his chair first, then climbed on his desk..then went on the edge of bed (top)  I can't explain it but that is VERY difficult thing to do...but needless he did it!  At least he got the determination!!!!  (yikes!)  I had to explain to Cory that he is not allowed up there until he is at least 5 years old and its dangerous to go up there without mommy and daddy.  I hope it stays that way...but it didn't.   Cory likes to "jump" down to the bed below him.  Time out!  it is so dangerous.  Not much space..like you would see in cartoon..from long jump into small small pool?  you get the idea.  

He likes to close his eyes when walking down the stairs..
He likes to go up the stairs on the outside of it..by holding the railings...
He likes to put things from the top and watch it go down, crashing...
He likes to pretending he is a Superman and go head first....
With cardbox, he tried to go down by standing up..

In restaurant, sometimes the music really gets to me..so loud.  I like to turn off my hearing aids for quiet time..we all sign to each other.  Sean took CA to bathroom..and suddenly everyone is looking at us.   I was trying to figure out why...as soon as I turn my aids back on.  Cory was slurping VERY loudly with his milkshake or making noisy sounds.   It was so loud!  oh my!  Who knows how long he did this?   I signed to Cory, "don't do that..its really loud!!  Its rude.   Please stop".   I figured if people saw us signing (like we are deaf) so they are more understanding why we didn't stop when Cory first did that.  I saw an elder man chuckling bit..so wheww.

Cory figured out how his fan (lights too) works in his room..slow, med and fast.  He starts throwing things to it to see the results.    UGH.   "Cool" he said.   Thank God..I was able to hear one that was loud enough that got me running before anything else get thrown.  I asked Sean to disconnect the fan for the time being..

I have to learn to unplug certain things..and NOT to show or do certain things in front of him or he will do it!!

Like the mixer, he knows how to turn it on...
coffee machine..
Boys and buttons..knows when to push them!

  1. Wow Karen... I laughed a few times out loud reading this entry of your blog!! You sure have your hands full. I love the part about him using cardboard to surf down the stairs :) Sounds just like stories my mom has about my bro when he was little (before I was born).
    See you next Monday!!
