Let’s see how few words I can use in this post, shall we?
I have a problem. It’s called costumania. I MUST dress up my children in costumes. Halloween is just another day to celebrate the disease.
My new favorite thing Will does is flex and grunt. He’s like a miniature version of Tim the Toolman Taylor and Goldberg (hollah to my fellow WWE fans).
We’ve done a decent amount of playtime in his room since the addition of the toyboxes. Also, I taught him the word ‘snaggletoe’.
Why yes, that is a giant fort in our living room. And of course, Will is flexing. Couldn’t you tell?
I hate our living room rug. I’ve said that before. I’ll say it again. And yes…this is how our living room looks 98% of the time. Laundry on the shelf. Toys everywhere. Thomas (aka “Tahnas” according to Will) on tv. And a randomly perched toddler.
I’ve been working on this:
Yup. $32 at Goodwill. It’s gonna be perfect for our dish storage in the dining room. I’ve learned that Will can handle exposed dishes. His friends? Notsomuch. The temptation was too great. So instead of crossing the awkward line and disciplining someone elses kid who might have uber grabby hands and no respect for the word NO…I’ll go for a makeover. But oh a girl could wish 🙂
It’s funny this piece. It’s like really confused. It has dovetailed drawers and yet it isn’t solid wood. Weird.
The lines were just my style though. In the words of Tony the Tiger – it’s gonna be GREEEEAT!
Superbowl Sunday was my birthday. I spent it helping my little brother move.
Yup. My baby brother Timmy bought his own four bedroom short sale. I could not be prouder. And he needed some help – so he called in the troops…aka Me, Jer, my mom and dad. Will supervised.
I was happy to share my day with him…because you only buy your first house once 🙂 So we had a celebration on Saturday with friends and family.
It’s been a while since we had everyone together. These girls make me so happy. And I am seriously contemplating turning 31 again just to have a reason for a get together.
Will had a little cold over the weekend. It was a nightmare. He never has been a solid night sleeper but when he was coughing every five minutes, it turned into something only likened to a middle school lock out. Imagine the screaming and being awake all night.
Now that I look at these photos – I hope he didn’t spit on the cake.
I like the fact that Jade is photobombing our family picture with his toddler who is wearing a broken bouncy fuzzy ball on his head. Nice.
Confession: I bought all of these in November and told Jer that they were my birthday gifts.
Another confession: I forgot what I bought and love them all 🙂
I got a mercury glass mushroom and a scented candle with holder from Bath and Body Works. Love the geometric pattern. And a capiz shell frame for my nightstand collection.
I asked Jer not to buy me cake or cupcakes or brownies this year. I just wanted a giant bowl of peanut M&M’s. Such a reasonable request.
This was the day after the party – when half the bowl was gone.
I am proud and
morbidly obese ashamed to announce that the bowl is now empty.
We’ve had crazy weather lately. One day its nice shorts weather. The next is drizzly and cold. Then it’s foggy. Then it’s perfect. It’s all over the place. Jeremy looks especially manly with his earmuffs, don’t you think? 🙂
I have more to share…but it’s late and Will is coughing so I best be visiting my little insomniac.
p.s. I’ve been getting a lot of emails lately from folks asking lots of questions…like ‘how do I fit it all in?’ and ‘how is cloth diapering going?’ and ‘Have you read Taking Charge of your Fertility’ yet?’…and I thought I might do a big QUESTIONS post…does this sound interesting or just boring? I might do it either way – just so I don’t have to type it all out a thousand times over….so if you have any questions you have been thinking of asking…nows the time I might actually answer 🙂
