1. My Mom and Dad are coming to visit next week! Yea!!!! Extra helping hands are on their way! I’m looking forward so much to seeing them. I love when they can come and do life with us. They get to see the good, the bad and the ugly. And I know they love every minute of it! I’m happy to be spending Easter with family too. It’s been a long time since we’ve shared this special day with any family. So Tuesday come on already we are ready to make a pick up at the airport!
2.Well if I’m honest and I will be I’ll tell you that the days have been a little really rough and long around here lately. There is one reason for this. THE GIRLS DO NOT NAP ANYMORE. Yep, not even 2 1/2 years old yet and they have thrown naps out the window. We still attempt to do rest time in their rooms. But as you can guess no one is really getting any rest, inlcuding me. The hours of 4-7 are not pretty. I know this is a stage and we will get through it but there are moments I’m just not sure. Another reason we are ready for Grandma & Pa to come:)
3. This is how everyone watches TV, right?
4. I have a new revelation in how to keep the kids busy (especially since our afternoon are longer now with no naps) and for me to exercise. We have a bike trailer that converts into a jogging stroller. I forgot this fun little fact. The girls love going in the trailer for runs and Mason has hit a new level in his confidence of riding his bike, especially on the street. So off we go on runs together almost daily. It makes us all happy and a little tired too. BONUS! The other day the girls even fell asleep on our run. Unfortunately it was at 5:00. Not the best time to be taking a nap if your mom and dad want you to go to bed 7:00. So we watched them sleep and remarked how cute they were now as they slept, knowing that as soon as we woke them up cute is not the word that would be in our minds.
5. My brother turned 30 this week. This is crazy to me. I have not been around him much in the last 8 years so somehow it amazes me that he is getting older just like everyone else. When I do see him I still think of him as my little brother who I used to be so silly with and laugh so hard my stomach hurt, who I climbed trees with, played army guys with and built forts with. But then I see his wife and 3 kids and I’m reminded that a lot has changed. But not really. He’s still my brother, one who will always have my back and who I can be silly with and laugh so hard my stomach hurts.
