The Photo Booth pics are from our first family outing to Coney Island last weekend (I’d taken both kids to Coney Island the week before, but Drew got to join us this time). We also took the kids to their first baseball game while we were there, but we left after three innings because it was kind of a shit show. (Literally, in Joanie’s case. At one point, I was changing her diaper in the bathroom and she just kept right on going as I’m changing her and there was so much and I ran out of wipes and I had to buckle her onto the changing table while I grabbed some toilet paper from the nearest stall to clean up as best I could and THEN there wasn’t any soap when I went to wash my hands and I had to go to a different bathroom and then I had to dip myself in a big vat of boiling water to sanitize my whole body because, you know, shit show.) Ah, motherhood.
This was a big week in our household because Jackson started PreK on Wednesday. The whole summer has been about two huge changes in our lives: the new baby and the new school (“big boy” school, no less). As you can imagine, there was a TON of anxiety (and excitement) about both, with all the assorted emotional outbursts and crazy behavior (and Jackson acted out a little too, ba-dum-bum.). So now that we’re on the other side of both changes, I hope things will start calming down a bit. In the meantime, I’ve been drinking a lot of tequila.
What’s new in your lives? Any back-to-school stories or end-of-summer freak outs? What are you up to this weekend?
