Happy Friday, everyone! How was your week? Mine was a little bit of a mixed bag, but I’d say the balance swung more toward “good” than not good. The weather improved over last week (really, there was no place to go but up in that regard), so that was nice. And we had three wonderful nights over the weekend and the early part of the week in which both kids slept all the way through and Drew and I got, like, seven or eight hours of solid sleep. I’m not sure that’s ever happened. Definitely not three nights in a row, anyway. I felt like a new woman! But then Joanie starting cutting five teeth at the same time and has been absolutely miserable and inconsolable and awake throughout the night screaming her little head off. Those three nights of sleep though — they were really nice.
What else? We’re getting ready for summer around here. I just signed up Jackson for summer camp (three days a week of art camp, making paper mache masks and documentaries and fairy houses–he’s very excited), and I ordered some new summer duds for both kids (Old Navy is having a 40% off sale today, FYI; Five dollar shirts? Okay!). Jackson had been asking for these shoes for the last couple of weeks and I was sort of dragging my feet a little because, well, I was a little nervous he might get made fun of and wanted to make sure he really wanted them before pulling the trigger. He kept asking for them so I said: “What will you do, Jackson, if someone says your shoes look like girl shoes?” And he said, “Someone probably will say that because they are girl colors. But I’ll just say, ‘They’re boy colors, too, because I’m a boy and I like them!'” The shoes should arrive in a few days and I think they’re gonna look pretty cool on him.
Anyway, that’s it for now. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and I’ll see you back here on Monday.
PS Those were my Mother’s Day flowers pictured above and they’re still going strong five days later! Aren’t they pretty? They’ve made me smile all week long. Need a little pick-me-up? Go out and get yourself some flowers!
