Friday Favs

I have had to remind myself several times this week just to breathe, and that everything will get done in due time… Projects got done, house work is mostly done, but the little moments with Sean really helped to make it fun amidst the deadlines I was trying to meet. I’m going to share some of those favorite moments today.

1. When he was ‘helping’ in the yard.
He was so determined to help me rake up the leaves, so he grabbed the broom from the garage to try and ‘help’. When he realized that it wouldn’t work, he went to get the little pumpkin that I have by the door, to show it to me. I’m not sure if he thought that it was in the way, so he was moving it, or if he wanted to use it as a ball… Either way I did the yard work while he ran circles around me. (^_^;)

2. Lunch Date
I am so so so thankful that I am working from home so I can have these little lunch dates with this guy. Sometimes that just means a little something from the Target food court, but with the look on his face you would have thought that it was 5 star dining. He’s just so precious.

3. When he helps with dinner.
I have always loved to cook, and it seems as though Sean has taken an interest in it as well. The moment he hears me working in the kitchen, he’ll run to get his little apron, grab a chair to stand on and watch as I put dinner together. Don’t worry, I keep a good eye on him! It’s really a lot of fun, and it seems to have helped him show more of an interest in the food on his plate. ^_^

Hopefully next week won’t get out of hand and there won’t be any gaps in my blogging week. Thanks for being so patient and for still reading my blog anyway. That really means a LOT to me!

So to those of you who blog, do you have an awesome-amazing way to keep your ‘blog life’ super organized? I can use all the help I can get, so please share! I’ll love you FOOOOOOREVER!!!!!!!


The only mommy info you need…

1. You’ll never have enough crackers.
I was trying to make breakfast this morning when Sean was dancing around me with a bag of crackers, chanting, “Cwa – kers pwease! Cwa – kers pwease!”

Of course the world ended when I told him he had to wait… This child could eat crackers at every meal and for snack, every day of the year if I let him! You would seriously think that there is a shortage in the world, the way we go through them!

2. Nap time is a gift from God. IMG_5332.JPG
You Love your kids to the moon and back. You love them more than life itself. You would do anything for them. But let’s face it… If we’re all honest, at some point, we’ve all done the happy dance when they fell asleep.

No, forget the happy dance! You’re doin’ back flips and running laps around your living room!

3.You’ll have every cartoon theme song memorized.IMG_4640.JPG
Can I remember everything I learned in all of my college music classes? Nope… Can I remember what I had for lunch yesterday? Absolutely not… But I can sing every song from ‘Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood’ and ‘Cat
and the Hat’!

In the end, you love it so much, you’re singing it through the checkout without giving much thought to the mortified high schooler that is ringing up your groceries or the elderly lady behind you that is smiling and nodding approvingly. ♪♪♪♪♪ I usually just consider myself lucky to have gotten out of the store with my kid still happy!

4. You’ll break your own preplanned rules.IMG_5295.JPG
Before Sean was born, I had all these plans for what I would do as a mom. I was going to be a cloth diapering, homemade baby food, absolutely no sugar till three years old, and give him an all organic wooden rattle kind of mom. Hahahahaha… Yeah… That didn’t happen.

(If you faithfully do all of that, that’s awesome! I have a lot of respect for moms who do. It just didn’t work out for us…)

5. You can talk about diapers over dinner.
Did you really think I was going to post a picture of a diaper? Really??

I hope you have been enjoying the blog! When you like and share the posts, you’re allowing others to enjoy them as well! Hope to see you tomorrow. 🙂
