Buttons! Love em!
Mind you they are a pain in my you know what to sweep up and I will most likely be finding them around the house for weeks....they still beats sparkles!
Kaitlyn quickly sorted out her "favite colours."
A little word in with the buttons. Not something big but it jumped out at me and smacked me in the face. I need to make it a priority to be and look for happiness all through the day.
A part of this realization was to really choose my battles and even if I don't feel like putting in the effort and to just enjoy the mess making along with the kids.
I started to freak out a bit and asked Ethan to stop sweeping buttons off the table, then Kaitlyn joined in, I was not happy. Then I saw the delight in thir little faces as the sunlight bounced off the buttons as they flew onto the floor.
I smiled, I lost that battle, and I am glad.
Of course I put them to work sweeping up the mess.
However Kaitlyn doesn't quite get how to make propper piles and swept up little piles all the way over to where I was sitting.
Despite the mess I had a lump in my throat, I just love these little munchkins and feel so blessed to be able to hang out with them day in and day out.
I sure have my moments where I feel like yanking every last strand of hair out of my head but they are fleeting and I just have to think about how awesome these little ones are for the next moment and it brings me to tears of love and gratitude. I love them!
The occasional break is welcome however and this Sunday I had a treat day and made a few cards at a party.
Tonight I picked up Emily and we headed to It's a Blast for a few hours. It is such a fun place to go when we are feeling cooped up...we expeled tons of energy (thank you 2 hour naps) and got our seretonin levels on the move.
Now since I have been absent again a few days, not intended, but I have been working on the messes around here... I will bring you up to date on yesterday.
Since the big talk with Dave about our love life, kids, housework and everything else in between I have been working hard on change.
I made lists, charts and schedules, stayed up at night plotting what I would do to make things right.
The answer to my problem...go shopping!
Why do I always cock my head like that?!
Doesn't shopping always fix everything?
I actually hit up a consignment store a few blocks away and snagged all these outfits...3 tops, a jacket, and 3 skirts for under $100 bucks. I am happy!
Now my pact is to dress up every day....well at least try to be pretty. No more 3 days in the same pair of jeans and same t-shirt and a pony tail. I am going to mix it up, wear a few skirts and even wear socks and shoes!
I hate socks!
This is a big deal for me.
And make-up, I will put on eye brows...didn't you know?
They are transparent, I have to draw them on. Scary!
Baking cookies at 11:00 PM. The whole sleep schedule is going ok. The days Kaitlyn does not have a nap she is down by 9. The days the she has a nap there is no way to get her down early.
Seems to be every 3 or four days, kind of a cycle.
Now just to work it into my charts, hmmmm.
