The way babies sleep: Peace, y'all. I'm here. 👉 Our church is hosting John Crowder this weekend, and meanwhile I got a dizzy spell that was so intense I couldn't even get up to wash my face last night. 👉 Went to sit through 3 soccer games in the sun this AM anyways, with Thomas at work, and when it was all over, Silver, who had been put into a diaper even though her potty training is nearly complete, had a poop, Blaise woke up and wanted to nurse, and I was gathering six children who seemed to care about nothing except more snacks, and all our trash into the stroller and across the parking lot without getting killed, all while bring so dizzy that I didn't know if I could make it over there without falling. 👉 Then I met Silas' soccer coach, Kelly, who is a mom of 5, and she HELPED ME to the car, held Blaise while I changed the toddler poop and even gave me baby wipes. Thank the LORD for fellow mothers! 👉 I ended up taking a nap somehow, and directing dinner. 👉 Do you know, I think age 11 is too old not to know how to clean the kitchen by yourself? So I taught Sparrow that skill tonight, talking her through each part, and she DID IT! She did every single part, pots, pans, and all! 😍 Silas and Daddy are gone, so we ended up with a chick flick and caramel corn. And I feel a lot better! Praise!!!
When your gym fam agrees to join you for a Saturday morning lunge party!!! @tandre91@carolinagaleckas even if you were party poopers and bailed on the last two rounds....luv you anyways 😘 I appreciate the support 🤗
My fave part of this picture? The toothy gap in Silas' wide smile. 😀 Grateful for friends and parties and eleven year olds today! And tots who pee and poop in toilets! Cold turkey potty training right now. 😁 On which note, I'm also utterly grateful for a NO-CARPET house!
Eleven?! ...ELEVEN!!! This happened to my firstborn this week and I was the one in shock about the eleven. She is more than one could hope for in a daughter. She and her sweet friends are having a sleepover right now, and baby's only three weeks old, and part of me thought "What was I thinking?!" But I've learned a few things about parties, cause it ain't my first rodeo. My tips: When she says "I'd like an ice cream cake," and I think 'I could make that myself,' I autocorrect: "Um, no you will NOT make that cake AND clean the house while nursing a newborn. You will BUY that cake and actually have some fun at this thing." ⭐️ Paper plates don't have to be cute. ⭐️ You don't have to plan a whole bunch of activities OR have a theme, either. ⭐️ The most important things: friends, ice cream cake, oh and give her a whittling knife. ⭐️ WE LOVE YOU, SPARROW GIRL!!!!
San Diego blooms. Coronado is so pretty during the Spring.
PS... if all goes according to plan, I am opening my doors next month. So much needs to happen between now and then. Oddly, the anxiety hasn't set in yet.
Even though my daughter is turning into a teenager, I love that she still wants to be like me... even matching clothes. I try to live my life in a way to help her make good decisions on her own. I'm proud of the young lady she is becoming. #daughters#teenagers
Hey there, cutie. 👉 Funny story about llamas: Silver decided she is afraid of them. Last night Pippa was saying she was scared to be in her room alone. When I put Silver in the room to join her for goodnight time, the little thing looked out the window, saying, "lemme check. ...Nope! No llamas!" Ok, then. Room verified safe by Silver! 😂 This little donkey is so cute too, don't you think? We had a pet donkey when I was 7. And then it was eaten alive by DOGS. True story. What happens in Mexico, ...happens in Mexico.
