I’m a day late on this one after linking up yesterday to talk about my Work/Life Balance. You can check it out HERE if you want to read some of the things I shared that work for me.
But anyway, I still wanted to give you a little peek into what’s going on in our neck of the woods.
Friday Night we….ate pizza. Riveting, I know.
We always keep it simple on Fridays because we are pretty beat by the end of the week.
After dinner Kevin left for a charity event. I got the kids scrubbed and asleep then went into total relaxation mode.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love to spend time with my husband. He’s my favorite person in the world. But sometimes, I want to be AALLOOOONNEE. Completely alone. Not like, “I’m upstairs, and he’s downstairs and I know he’s going to be up soon to sleep AND he’ll want to turn the light off when I want to stay up and read” kind of alone. I mean REALLY alone. I had all the toys picked up and the dishes clean so that as soon as the boys heads hit the pillows I was off the clock. I ate a huge cupcake with a glass of milk in bed and stayed up super late reading a book. It was glorious. That is my true, albeit pathetic, paradise.
Saturday was rainy and gross so we hung in.
Tearing up a pomegranate donut. This kid never stops eating.
When Kevin came home we went to the library (I know, I know, I talk nonstop about the library).
Reid was gentleman enough to hit the automatic door opener whenever someone needed to come in. This kept him wildly entertained for about a half hour. Then we dove deep into puzzles, learning letters and playing in the playroom. We left with more books than we could carry and I think I picked out a couple with great potential.
Is this the face of a kid excited to get in the pool or what?!
Sunday was the first day in this session of swim. Hank is a major fish and was counting down the hours all weekend for swim. I think Reid was so excited because he saw how pumped Hank was and the anticipation was pretty contagious. Both boys have been taking lessons since they were 6 months and are doing great in the water. We have a pool so we are really trying to push water safety and the ability to swim.
Hank’s 1st swim lesson.
Reid’s 1st swim lesson.
After swim we had Kevin’s siblings and their families over for an easy Mexican dinner. It is great to get everyone together and I love to watch all the kids interact. Although they are little, they really all love one another.
The lack of time it takes for a 5 toddlers to destroy a room is astounding. I’m not annoyed, I’m impressed.
Yesterday I was able to head up to the hospital to meet my sweet Goddaughter who was born Sunday evening. She is BEYOND precious with the chubbiest cheeks I have ever seen. Being up at the hospital and smelling that new baby smell had me yearning to do it all again. I could have taken baby Mia home with me in a heartbeat but I don’t think her parents would be keen on the idea.
Finally, after visiting with the baby, I grabbed the boys and headed to the trampoline park. Had to burn a little more energy before bedtime. It was nice to go at at off time. The boys really had the run of the place.
Hope you all had a good one.
