Friday Catch-up

Where did my week go?  I can’t believe in the blink of an eye(or coughing fit for me right now) that the week flashed by.  When planning this week I forgot to pencil in sick Momma and sick kiddo #1 with dance recital dress rehearsal, last week of preschool, end of year gifts for teachers, friend’s birthday party, redecorating Taylor’s room, and a long holiday weekend ahead.  I know my kids and husband enjoyed the break from my voice for a few days since it decided to take a vacation.  I  finally found a good reason to whisper ‘Don’t make me yell!’  For some reason this didn’t seem to slow me down.  Here are few things that I still managed to accomplish this week:


Homemade popsicles with my new Zoku. Mother’s Day presents that involve cold things for hot Texas weather ROCK!  My girls are finally entertaining each other.  I only had to follow behind to make sure Lizzie didn’t bop her head into the wall.  Lots of giggles, happy girls.


Big sister so sick that she feel asleep waiting for the doctor.  Strep is yucky.  One of your babies having to get a shot is yucky.  Go away germs!  Little sister managed to go through my entire purse and all of the cabinets in the room.  Can I send my husband to baby-proof one room that they will then put us in each time???  Let’s just not tell the doctor about a few new pen marks that we ‘co-or’ on his floor.  Ooopps!


I love toddler words for things.  They make so much sense.  Eyes = sunglasses in her world.  LOVE it!

The big one barely left the couch all day and wanted me to sit with her.  Good thing I had a few knitting projects and an Apple TV loaded with movies so I never had to get up.  Little sister took a nice long nap.  Guess destroying a doctor’s office will wear you out.


Pink lemonade = ‘me-cine’ in her world.  Not sure, but she still drinks it.  Tried hard to keep them apart to avoid germies spread, but little sister couldn’t help but love on big sister.


End of Year gift for sweet preschool teachers.  Inside is yummy Ghirardelli mint chocolates and a Starbucks gift card.  Chocolate and coffee = heaven in my world.  Thank you to the sweet women who loved on my baby all year!  Next is one of the projects for my Etsy shop I worked on while snuggling with a sick kid.  More to come on that soon.


Perfecting the french braid.  Not so great, but getting better.  She doesn’t care.  She thinks it’s rainbows and unicorns perfect.  I love that she loves without seeing flaws!

What happened around your house this week?

Poor girl...asleep at the dr. office must have meant she was super sick. I am glad she is better. And that little thing for your Etsy shop...what is it? It looks cute! You are so talented with your knitting!

Hope that Big sister is feeling better and that Little sister does not get her strep! Ask Jenn about french braids! I put them in so tight that they stayed over 24 hours - and she didn't even cry (or didn't let me see her cry)! But it couldn't have hurt too bad - because she kept coming back for me to do them again and again!
