Patrick has been SO excited that I signed him up for a spring soccer program. He has sat on the side lines forever. The only mistake I made was telling him about 4 weeks ago that he'll play soccer "in the spring". He has asked me every single wingle day, "Is is spring yet?"
Finally the time has come! He loved it.
Bought this lotion from a shop in Seaside and it smells like soap and the beach combined. A perfect scent. It makes me happy.
Making peanut butter cookies.
He was so proud of his rolling capabilities. And yes, I fixed them.
We also set up the train table.
I bleached my dish towels. They needed it bad;y. They look all nice and neat now.
Is that weird it makes me happy to have super white nice and neat matching dish towels? I think it is.
Patrick and Andrew picked these for me.
Abbey has two "big sis's" on the rowing team and they buy little gifts for each other for the regatta's. I put these together from the dollar store. It was fun. (Filled with candy and silly string and nail polish and a cute pad of paper.) Maybe it won't be as fun when I do it for the next four weekends.
I stopped and smelled the flowers.
I made my favorite salsa. I am feeling totally better food-wise. Finally. The sunshine helps I think.
We had started a TV habit when I was sick. It makes me feel awful when my kids watch TV, like their brains are getting fried. So we did a Cold Turkey TV Weaning. Our vacation helped kick it off, but once we got home we (Patrick) had some struggles. We made it through our first week and I won't say it was easy but it is worth it for my peace of mind not to have that darn thing on at all. This is his pouting face when I say no way.
Making lots of cookies (this time sugar cookies) helped distract from Dora cravings.
As did a little nap. I made a play list of kid's tunes and he thinks he's such a big kid listening to his (my) Ipod.
I am showing. Like I'm 30 weeks. Except I'm 24. I think it's the total lack of stomach muscles I started with. Or a giant baby. (There is only one in there, I know that for sure.)
