Rewards and Recognition

Bud was up before we were this morning, and we could hear him digging through bins of Lego. Buster was up a short time later, and I got Bud some breakfast before he headed off to school with M-lady. Buster got a little grumpy about something during the morning, and refused breakfast, but I did get to play with him a bit before Nanny J arrived.

The kids seem to have had a good day. M-lady got home early enough to snooze for about 10 minutes before Nanny J took her leave. She was apparently prodded a bit, but not jumped on while she rested.

When I got home near 6:00, Buster proudly let me know that he'd kept his pants dry today. We've been giving him stars for dry pants days, and this star marked the completion of his first set and attainment of his first reward, a Lego set. He was really excited. We opened up the set a little later in the evening, after Bud had started working on homework, and spent a chunk of the rest of the evening putting it together.

Both kids ate reasonable dinners, although Bud has been complaining of a sore throat. Hopefully he feels better tomorrow.

I got Buster ready for bed, and we worked on his Lego more rather than reading a story before turning out the lights.
