Happy Hump Day, friends! I really hate that phrase. I don’t know why, probably because I’m like super modest and conservative, that and it’s just really overused… so overused that I actually used it myself even though I really hate the phrase.
On another note — is anyone else just really thrown off this week? All day yesterday I kept thinking it was Friday! Or at least SHOULD be Friday. Isn’t that just sad?! It was only Tuesday, guys! ONLY TUESDAY!
My kids are sickly. Not sickly enough to keep them home from school, but sickly enough to keep themselves up coughing half of the night. Ugh! The neverending motherly debate – do I keep them home from school and drag them to the Doctor just so their absence is excused? Do I keep them home and just let them rest and their absence be unexcused? They don’t have a fever, just a nasty cough and some stuffy noses, but who’s to say it’s not just allergies and weather changes?! UGH! Being a parent is such a struggle sometimes.
I sent poor Owen to preschool yesterday worrying about the excused/unexcused absences and then realized, “Amber! It’s PRESCHOOL! He can miss! It’s not mandatory! You’re such a dummy” but by then the damage was already done, he was at school, happily, just coughy.
They all woke up happily this morning, happier than they have the past few days so hopefully it’s skipping town and ditching my kids sooner rather than later.
In other news… Dr Seuss night at their school – so fun! They made hats, ate lots of cookies, got some new books from their book exchange, and ran around like chickens without heads. Seriously, it was chaotic and they had a blast.
Missy ate another couch pillow. We started with four. We own two now and one has a giant hole in it.
Poor Bo was just sleeping right through it until he realized I was running around, yelling at Missy, and cleaning up pillow fluff from EVERYWHERE, including his head.
Let’s move on to Owen photography. Every now and again, Owen will ask for my phone to take pictures. It usually starts with him wanting to look at a picture we just took and escalates from there. Next thing I know, I have over 100 new pictures of blurry who knows what on my phone. He is improving though, just look at these pictures!
Outfit of the day yesterday because I was cleaning off pictures off of my phone. I actually changed into black shoes because these pinches my toes funnily and it bugged me.
David had to work late the other day, Bo decided he’d keep me company. He usually ends up in David’s spot in the mornings after he goes to work anyway, but on this particular night, he straight up beat me to bed. I had to argue with him and shove him over onto his half of the bed. Such a ridiculous dog.
That’s my current life update! What’s yours?
