It was a long week around here but we were safe and warm. We know those are the important things but that didn't stop me from complaining...I'm sorry about that. Bless your heart you have no choice but to hear the complaining.
Daddy being home means there are a few more laughs around here. Some of them are at his expense. Like when he is in charge of dressing the kids.
Her hair is of course my favorite part.
But the Wild Child too-small t shirt is a close second. The shirt is a hand-me-down from her big cousin and hasn't fit since last summer. Never mind that he had to dig past mounds of suitable clothes to find this ensemble...yes never mind that.
Anyway. When he is home we try to take one of our kids somewhere by themselves so we can really concentrate on them. Sometimes it's a simple trip to Sonic and sometimes it's a longer or less convenient place that we wouldn't try with all three.
The zoo, the pool, or Florida, for example. Neither one of us is brave enough to try any of those with all our little toots in tow.
Ty and I went on a date to the music store, though not as a reward for being 100% potty trained. He'd hold it as long as he needed to if we didn't intervene with pull ups at night so he can go potty. Any advice?We just went so he could play the drums since he hasn't been in so long. You know, as motivation.
Yesterday afternoon the big kids got a little too quiet and Sean went to check on them. Next thing I knew I got this picture in a text from him. Big cheap fun at the expense of toilet paper.
I took Joy on my grocery run and she loved it. I usually go alone but she's started showing signs of cabin fever so she helped mommy get our groceries. She talked me into a few things like Kix cereal and some Cool Whip.
Ok the Cool Whip was my idea.
And Charlie helped me run errands. Can you tell I took the clothing duties back over?
Oh hi monkey. Yes I know Daddy struggles with the clothes. Mommy is here, mommy is here. It'll all be alright now.
Her boots are hilarious-they're from Ross but you'd think they were fancy as proud of them she is. "Boots! Charlie's boots! Wear it? Okay!!"
That's about it.
I told you it wasn't exciting.
