. . . so little time!
I’ve got lots to share, but not a lot of time or energy to do it tonight, so the dazzling descriptions are going to be kept to a minimum for this post.
The girls are going through an early wake up phase, and were both up at 6:30 one morning last week. This got them an episode of Mickey Mouse on our bed while I finished getting ready for the day.
This is what happens when Emmy wakes up early, and I haven’t had breakfast yet. Suddenly, my smoothie becomes community property.
Lucy did a good job keeping Oma dry while walking into the mall.
Another magic wand for her ever growing collection in the garage.
I’ve been trying to find a good pair of sunnies for Emmy Roses. Clearly, these are not it.
Nor are these! LOL!
Lucy planted grass seeds at school and has been diligently cutting and watering her grass.
Everything she needs to know, she learned from her daddy.
They were actually playing together for about ten minutes, and it was glorious!
Emmy took her first ride in the car cart. It went better than this picture suggests.
We’ve been working pretty hard on our diet, but I refuse to be the mom who won’t enjoy treats with her kiddos. Matty and I split a blizzard, and it was delicious!
Lucy got a toddler bed over the weekend . . . so of course I made a comparison picture! Here’s one of the first pictures we have of Lulu in her crib and then one I snapped of her right before Matty took her crib apart. I can’t believe it’s been three years already!
Lucy’s new bed is the girls’ new favorite place to play. Ems can scurry up and down like nobody’s business.
The current stuffy situation. Don’t worry, each night I’m putting fewer and fewer out. She’ll be down to her top five or so in no time.
Immediately after teaching Emmy to stand up on the bed, Lucy jumped off of it. Here’s hoping Ems holds off on that for awhile!
If there’s something to jump off of, Lu’s doing it.
Lucy told me she wanted to eat her banana like a real monkey . . . and then had to explain to me that it meant the peel needed to stay on, but that it should be peeled down to the bottom and all strings should be removed. Check out your local zoo exhibit, I’m sure you’ll see all the mama monkeys doing the exact same thing.
Cookie Monster is buried under that mound of Play Doh.
We are soaking up every minute of this beautiful weather.
Lucy is doing so well at school. She actually left my side the other day to go work on a Mother’s Day project for me with her teacher. She took her time, chatted with Mrs. T, and used a ton of glue and sparkles.
We were walking through Hobby Lobby yesterday, and Lucy shouted, “Momoozle! It’s Snorty!” We bought the card and brought it home, obviously.
I finally found a pair of cute sunnies for Em . . . and she kept them on our entire walk!
We have a BIG weekend ahead of us. We will be celebrating Lucy’s birthday at Funtastic, and she is PUMPED! We can’t wait to celebrate our favorite three-year-old with some playtime and donuts.
Oh, and Mother’s Day on Sunday! The day all moms struggle with whether or not they should spend time with their children or take time for themselves. I’m hoping to achieve a nice balance this year!
