Jack's probably scared of the blender cause he hears it so often when I'm making margaritas and he knows they're not for him.

Well all went like a dream yesterday. Jack had two long sleeps right on time and was a good boy all day with Irene. Jack and Kai slept for over an hour at the same time in the afternoon so that Irene could have some peace. There wasn't a tear or a tantrum and both of the boys were happy.
