We are a married couple who adopted our little Russky, Nikita {aka Nicky, Nicky noodle, little man, Nikoli, the Nickster, crazy dude, goofball, puppy love, etc...you get the picture!} from St Petersburg, Russia four years ago. Join us as we stumble through the joys and perils of parenthood, while our son teaches us a few things along the road...


Happy Easter!

Our morning started out quite well. Daddy came home from the fire station and woke up Nicky, allowing Momma a bit of a much needed lie-in! Once downstairs, Nicky's eyes darted all over the house looking for the basket of goodies the Easter Bunny had left for him. Having found it on the kitchen table, he was eager to dig in, so Daddy moved it to the couch where Nicky was afforded a more comfortable perch.
After looking through the basket, the hunt for the eggs was on! Due to the bad weather outside, the Easter Bunny had to hide the eggs in the living room and den, so Blitzer and Bailey chipped in with the hunting.
It took Nicky about 17 seconds to find 43 eggs! (yes, I counted them...not OCD at all! it was just in case one of the dogs made off with one! :) We then enjoyed a nice breakfast (if I do say so myself!) and since Momma had a migraine (ugh!) she took a nap, while Daddy and Nicky watched Toy Story 2...thank goodness we went to church Friday night so we were able to relax and take our time today.
The remainder of the day was spent with Nicky throwing tantrums and with Momma at work! Yuck! :( Why do they call it the "terrible two's"?! A friend of mine has this theory that it's not the actual age of two, it's just that it starts at that age & that it lasts for two years...oh great! And of course there's the "traumatic three's" saying. Well - whatever you call it, toddlerhood is alive and well in the Johnson house! If you ever want to see some incredible mood swings and be amazed as to how one little guy can go from being the most lovable thing EVER one minute, to being the most obnoxious, screaming, mean little beast the next, well, then our door is open to you! But, man, we love that kid!

Anyway...I digress...We hope you all had a Happy Easter!
