Yes you read that right folks…Movember is a month that focuses on raising donations for Prostate Cancer through…what else…growing a “Mo” (or moustache, for those of you who don’t remember the 70’s, not that I do, hehe, but I wish I did!). And while I think this is a fabulous reason to grow one it might take me more than a month to get a really good one going so my husband will pick up the slack…on November 1st he shaved everything so he would have a smooth face to start with…it’s been ten days and here is what we have so far.
If you want to help the moustache grow faster and haven’t yet made your yearly contribution to your favorite charity consider donating $5 to his fund by clicking here.
In Coen land:
– He has started calming down on his own during his tantrums, which is HUGE for us. Usually what happens during one of these ordeals is that he starts jumping up and down and screaming for whatever reason and we do the best we can to acknowledge his feelings…usually I holds his hands while he goes on and on saying “I know your really upset, Coen…blah blah blah” So the other day as we were doing this he stopped for a minute to take a breath and I jumped in there with my “oh Coen!!!! Look you calmed down all by yourself!!! What a big boy you are!!” and on and on. He kind of looked at me funny, like “uh…I had to breath at some point, Mom” but then he was like “yeah, I did calm down…I’m a big boy!” And since then when he starts to throw a tantrum he takes a few deep breath and says proudly “look! I did it!” Well, most of the time, at least!
– We are going through some weird sleep issues…Coen has always been pretty easy to put to bed…it was the constant waking that was the problem for the first year and a half. Now he won’t go to bed and even
after he finally falls asleep he wakes up throughout the night. This is slowly driving Dave and I crazy. Especially after getting a pretty solid year of him sleeping through the night our bodies are not used to this
anymore. I hope it resolves soon…any advice from you Mom’s out there? Please?!!
Of course, he remains as cute as ever…sigh…while I am sporting some serious bags under my eyes (thank you photoshop!).
