Earned Reward

The kids were up a bit before 8:00 again. Bud kept to his room, reading, and Buster came in to jump in bed with us. M-lady was up a little earlier than me, and I got out of bed around 8:00.

Bud has been earning points and saving them for about two months, as well as putting all his New Year's gift money and other funds he had at his disposal, to purchase a Lego set he's been wanting for some time: The Black Pearl from Pirates of the Carribean. He earned enough points over the weekend, the box arrived yesterday, and he opened it up this morning. Both kids headed up to Bud's room to work on the set, and were just getting started when Nanny J arrived and I headed out for work.

The first thing Bud said to me when I got home around 5:45 was that he was sorry that he'd finished constructing the ship before I got home, and there wasn't anything left for us to do together. I didn't mind too much, and after Nanny J took her leave, we took a look at the ship together. It's pretty impressive, and both kids were really excited about it.

M-lady arrived home a short time later, and was also given a tour of the ship. A bit later, the kids and I watched a new episode of Ninjago on TV. The writing for that show is actually really impressive: they're taking more risks than any kids show I've seen before, and more than most adult TV fare as well. It's pretty cool.

Dinner came up, and the kids ate reasonably well. Bud did his piano practice after dinner, and I played a little on the computer with Buster before snack time. Snack was a fairly quick affair, and then I played on the iPad with Buster a bit before tucking him into bed. He fell asleep pretty quickly.
