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...


Guess Who's Back?

Nana and Pop brought our sweet baby back to us two weekends ago.  We figured we would have some trouble getting him back into his routine, so the little bit of sassiness he's picked up and decided to throw at us has been expected.  We thought we had done a pretty good job of preparing ourselves...that is until the first morning back to school rolled around.  We knew we were in for a long morning when the first thing out of his mouth when Kris woke him up was "i no wanna go to school!  i stay in bed!  i sleepy!"

After trying to convince him to get dressed countless times, I went with the - "Ok.  You're right.  It's your choice.  You can either go to school nekked or with your clothes on.  You decide." - method.  As you can see from the picture above, he decided that the new fad which all 4 year olds should adorn is the highly fashionable bathmat!

Needless to say, he managed to snap out of it, put his clothes on, eat breakfast and go to school with Daddy and perform a seamless drop-off.  I swear.  Sometimes I really feel like I'm living life on a roller coaster.  This kid changes his moods more quickly than a woman with PMS! 

ps...despite all that...I'm soo glad he's back home...the house was a little too un-eventful without his silly self around!
