Last night we had a babysitter for the first time in months so that we could go on a date night., (Hockey! Dinner! kid free! It was fun)
We've had this particular babysitter coming over for years. She's awesome. Normally Dominic cries when we leave and is then just fine for the remainder of the evening (drama boy and all). Last night... I was going over food options in the kitchen and he came up first to Dad and then to me, gave us both kisses, said "bye" and walked off. All three adults looked at each other slack jawed. This is a first. Julie told us when we got home that he'd been extra chatty with her (more than ever before) AND she also got snuggles, which is another first - normally he ignores her.
The grant application went into the mail yesterday as planned. They will make a decision by December 15th.
I've been working on weaning Dominic off of Melatonin at night. Its one of those neurotransmitters that a healthy gut produces on its own. Dominic's been taking supplemental melatonin for years now or stayed up and partied until very late. We're now 2 nights in a row with none at all.
Does anyone else's child like to snack on freshly roasted turkey? We are cooking the last of last years turkeys from the freezer today to make room for fresh ones when they go on sale soon, and I roasted two small ones overnight. I shredded the meat, and Dominic got a fork and helped himself. at 10 in the morning. Goofy boy. At least its healthy.
