Linking up with Jen at Conversion Diary today!
We "celebrated" Cow Appreciate Day last Friday with the good people at Chick-fil-a and with some good friends. I crossed both "lunch" and "field trip" off my list in one swoop.
|Don't let her fool you, she really was happy to play in the playground.|
|Thanks for being a good mom and taking pictures, Jessica!|
Certain children and I have seen waaaay too much of the pool restroom this summer. Almost to the point that I wish I was dealing with swim diapers and not public pool bathrooms with recently potty-trained offspring. Over-sharing but had to say it.
I recently found Ann Marie's blog and have been motivated by her "Summer Simplify" series. I made a trip to the Dollar Store and stocked up on some organizing bins/containers and purged my linen closets. Colorful and organized. And about 396 packages of floss lighter!
Michael had his 4 month check-up this week and weighed in at 20 lbs., 6 oz. This confirms his win as my biggest baby ever, and that my biceps are ginormous. (Or just that he's heavy to carry in his pumpkin seat!)
I made homemade chex mix this week. My parents' neighbor who I babysat for used to make chex mix. She would start a batch of it and then head out and ask you to rotate it around and turn the oven off for her. She was one of the kindest and thoughtful people I have ever known and the smell of chex mix baking always makes me think of Amy! (Jude thinks I've been holding out on him since I have only fed him the store bought bag of chex mix up to this point in his life!)
