And then it sunk in, L wasn't lying, he really DID say "The socks are in his diaper."

Anyways, so later that week when M had a day off we made the trip up to Estevan, SK. And I fell in love.
The Toddler Time group that is on the other side of town (literally the other side!) has been the best find yet. There are 7 other moms from that side of town that attend (I'm the token American) and between them there are eight children under the age of 4. Its so nice knowing that we have something to get out of the house for at least once a week.
Though, the past few weeks we have been very busy. All those trips to Canada. I've made many wonderful discoveries in Estevan, thanks to a new friend, Emily. She has introduced me to Tim Horton's, which is a better Canadian counterpart to Dunkin' Doughnuts. And she introduced the boys and I to a place called The Family Resource Centre (ahhh, I love how they spell that!), a huge play center for children. They have every toy and every thing any little child would love to have and play with for your use. For free.
And my newest, most recent discovery is The Leisure Centre (again, love!). A HUGE community (everything) center. There is a library, which we haven't been to yet, but I'm hoping to visit soon. And there is a hockey rink, two squash courts, a tennis court, a BMX park, weight rooms, a gigantic lap pool, a huge children's wading/splash pool, a steam room, a hot tub, and an indoor water slide of water park proportions. Emily and I were able to go up there Monday night for a deep water running class. Its an amazing work out in the deep end of the pool.
I am so happy to have discovered civilization so close to home. So happy, I have in fact, been to Canada 4 times since Monday! I am excited at the new opportunites the boys and I have had, and the new friends we're making.
G and Z, especially Z, love to "clean" for Mommy. They have different methods depending on their mood. Some days they'll go around and pick up all the little toys and put them in a tote. Or, we have this funky sink cabinet where there is what looks like a drawer, but actually hinges open and is just a nice little drop slot to the cupboard, and they will put any and everything that fits through the drop slot. Today they chose to throw the toys over the radiator covers which are again blocking the living room off until we finish rearranging the furniture.
They absolutely love to wear M's hats. Much more so than their own hats. They will run around for baby eternity (a.k.a. 10,15, 20 minutes) putting the hat on and taking it off.

It arrived here yesterday afternoon. I excitedly pulled it out of the packagin and put the table together. Within 2 minutes, M and I realized that G and Z might not be quite ready for such a big boy item. The table was pushed all around the dining room, completely tipped over and many attempts were made to climb up on it. So we hid the table. And then I put the chairs together. And while they may not be quite ready for the chairs either, they sure are cute sitting on them! And then standing. And then dancing while standing...
Watching cartoons last night
