Cuz in a weird, I must-thrive-on-stress-kinda-way, I missed you too!
So it's summer and I am totally kicking that to-do list's butt. And while we're on the topic of 'the list', I'd like to point out that there are several items on that list that I don't actually wait for summer to accomplish (ie. Scrub toilets, vacuum, etc.) No, no. I do those things several times a week, but they make the list because it makes it easy for me to get 'em done and cross 'em off! (In which case, I feel quite satisfied with myself and feel motivated to keep doing things I probably ONLY do once a year, like wash baseboards and reorganize cupboards and cabinets.) Just didn't want you to think my toilets hadn't been cleaned in a year!
So while I haven't been blogging or cleaning, I have been keeping busy.
And with the help of Instagram, (new obsession) I've been capturing lots of little moments I've been loving lately. In no particular order.....
|My pretty purple toes. Thank you, Brian for choosing my summer color and for helping me with my pedicure.|
|Waffle Mittens. (aka 'Sock Hands'). Why? Because he's three, I suppose.|
|Daddy playing in the clubhouse with his only daughter.|
|Our new firepit Brian just built (then tore apart cuz he didn't approve) and rebuilt. I see smores in my future....|
|My babies. When I'm not frustrated and wanting to put permanent earplugs in my ears, I love them to the moon and back. Other days, I just want to love them to the moon and then come back alone. ;)|
|Dad, Brinley, Uncle Mike|
|Brinley, My Dad, Hunter|
|And finally, I'm so obsessed with DrawSomething it's ridiculous. Who knew drawing pictures could be so fun! Thank you to all my peeps who support my need to draw big booties and people barfing overboard. It's good fun. Yes, it is.|
And finally, it wouldn't be a house full of 3 year olds if I didn't have funny sayings to share.
Colton, who seems to have already outgrown his "Why not?" phrase, has moved on to saying,
"Nooo. I forgot." Allow me to give an example.
Colton: Mommy, I want to take a sower (shower).
Me: You don't need to take a shower, buddy, you took a bath last night. Remember?
Colton: Nooo. I forgot.
Or this one, even better when it makes NO sense at all:
Colton: I want fruit snacks.
Me: But you just ate 2 waffles and strawberries and it's only 8:30 in the morning.
Colton: Nooo. I forgot.
(it made sense to him!)
Hee hee...That's all for now my friends! See you again in a few days!
