Got to hang with my girl for some extra hours on Wednesday and also a bit on Thursday morning! Holden went to school on Wednesday. We are way too slow moving for him. He did get to have extra time at home with Mommy and sister on Thursday thanks to a 2 hour delay for me.
Gosh, why do I hate Sundays? They overwhelm me from the moment my feet hit the floor. I absolutely hate it! I saw this funny e-card somewhere that said “Sunday…when we try to get our whole life together in twelve hours.” So true and so unrealistically crazy!
I think the concept of Sunday as a day of rest is a wonderful idea. However, Mommy and Daddy have to go to real jobs on Monday morning. All the home jobs have to get done some time. I can tell you that Monday afternoon at about 4:45 is probably not going to work for us (or 5:45ish in the case of the Mr.’s arrival at home). So anwayyyy! I obviously got a bit bogged down in the Sunday workday blues, but I/we had a wonderful weekend. Nothing but great times!
Friday – Got off early, got my teeth cleaned (no cavities!), got my blood tested (so not fun but so worth it to be able to donate milk to the local children’s hospital milk bank), took a walk with some of my favorites and went to bed early
Saturday – ran ran ran in the morning after giving Hellie Bellie her first taste of bananas. This went better than rice cereal. Plus, her spit-up is now delightful! A sweet, banana smell! My mom aka Moochie visited us for the CHKD Make-a-Scarecrow event. We’ve done this every year since Holden was born. All proceeds go to Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters! We ate an early lunch at Commune…highly recommend! Glad we got to go! When I say it was a fast lunch, I mean it! Holden changed into his soccer duds in the parking lot. We picked the Mr. up on the way to the game. Holden did great even though it was super hot at the game. P.S. All this was done prior to 2PM. Whew! My mom and I left the kids with the Mr. for nap time and enjoyed fro-yo and coffee plus some grocery shopping/craft store shopping. Love having her visit!
Sunday – Baby food making! So far, we’ve got bananas, avocado, pears, and sweet potato. Helen has only had rice cereal and bananas. Lots of freezer food! We also took a nice walk at First Landing State Park. It was such a great temperature and a perfect day to check out a new trail that we don’t usually take. We came up on a nice little beach and let Holden and Roscoe (and maybe the Mr.) run wild.
Hope your weekend was a great one! I can’t wait for another.
On a sidenote…I got stuck in the room I pump in at school this past week. I found it hilarious, and I kind of wanted to not call anyone to help me out. What does that say about how my work weeks have been going? Hmmmm….The picture that I texted the Mr. below. I was doing some slightly hysterical laughing.
P.S. Holden got a new bike. He’s officially getting so tall and so big. How is this happening!?!? I want Helen to grow, and Holden to hold steady for a little bit.
