So the boys are home finally and I could not be happier. Tyrique started football on Monday and they practice every day from 6 pm till 8 or 8:30 pm. Tyrique is so happy to be playing football, he is loving going to practice everyday and when I ask him if he is tired he says "No Mamma I wanted to stay longer!" I think 2 or 2.5 hours is a really long time to be out there in the heat practicing. His games start in September sometime after school has started. Markus on the other hand is not playing any sport yet because he does not want to play anything other than baseball or basketball and those seasons have not started. Well baseball season just ended so he missed out on that one so he is going to have to wait until basketball starts.
Kobe is a whole nother story.....my perfect baby who has always gone to sleep so easily is now a horror to put to sleep. Since Kobe was born I have been putting him wide awake into his bed and he goes to sleep on his own, never a problem. Well now he starts to cry as soon as I walk into his room. I don't know what happened in the last week but he does not want to go to sleep in there at all. I am so damn stubborn though that I am not going to let him sleep in my bed or get used to being put to sleep. I have been letting him cry for about 10-15 min and then I go and check on him and kiss him and put him back down to sleep and this goes on for hours. Last night I put him in his bed at 8 and he was awake until after 12 am. He then woke up before 6 am and would not go back to sleep. When I put him down for his morning nap he went down just fine but he did not have an afternoon nap today.....he just cried until I gave up at about 2 pm. Hopefully tonight he will go to sleep really good.
As far as my diet and working out goes......it's not going!!! I have been really lazy lately and I am so mad at myself for it. I am doing good the last two days though and tonight after Dewayne gets home from work I am going to go ride my bike for awhile. I am determined to loose more weight. I have lost 7 lbs. so far and I want to loose another 13 lbs. by Labor day (Sept 1st). I will keep you all informed. Ok well enough for now. Have a great weekend everyone.
