My Week(354) in iPhone Photos

August 17th, 2017

I AM ONLY ONE WEEK BEHIND NOW IT’S A MIRACLE. But now I really really need to stop blogging and do some work on this birthday party I’m throwing on Saturday so I probably won’t really catch up for another 3 weeks.

Sunday:

KNUFFLE BUNNY

Screen zombies. It’s getting old.

Monday:

Big bottle for a little baby

Standard tv watching in our house

Tuesday:

Rose garden sun dial

Maybe it’s time to get him some shoes

Wednesday:

This is Finn’s favorite game

Skeptical I REALLY need all this stuff at the craft store

GET TO WORK, CHILD LABORERS

Thursday:

Toddler for sale, everyday low price

Finding rocks and hiding rocks

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU, BABY?

Friday:

Waiting for blood draws is exhausting

More rock painting

My new blanket for the USS Virgina. TIMELY.

Saturday:

Mad Scientist station at Cousin Camp

Custom made pizzas

Borrowing a neighbor’s swimming pool to end our awesome camp day

My parents are here to help with party stuff and I am SO unprepared. This is not going to be my best party. At this point I’m going to be impressed if there’s a cake and no construction actively occurring. Have I mentioned that I am TOTALLY OVER having people in and out of my house and not having a working full bathroom?

I don’t care what breaks in this money next – I’m throwing a tarp over it and ignoring the problem forever. NO MORE HOME IMPROVEMENTS. EVER.

I AM SO READY TO HAVE CONSTRUCTION PEOPLE OUT OF MY HOUSE FOREVER. I swear to god, the number one advantage in DIY home improvement isn’t cost, it’s the fact that you can stop and use your kitchen to make a sandwich if you want without being in anyone’s way.

Sunday:

Someone made some poor choices

Really tired of gymnastics nursing

Monday:

Still asleep when it’s time to leave for camp

Book Barn adventures

Why do we even own toys?

Tuesday:

I swear I’ve taken this photo every week all summer

Watching for ugly fish

Littlest aquarium fan

Wednesday:

He refused to move until I took his picture

You can see through my walls

Thursday:

Playing in the water

Waiting for the bridge to go up

I took a picture so I could go buy an identical diverter and I still got the wrong one

Friday:

No stop don’t run away

I don’t know what’s behind me

Being an A+ big sister

Saturday:

Seussian shenanigans

Thing 1 and Thing 2

Super cool art and play space

I’m trying to pick a grey paint color again and it’s making me insane. Because why not spend three days agonizing over paint colors when the painting has to be done by Saturday?

My husband just got back from severals weeks underway on his submarine, so the amount of laundry in my house went from “a lot but almost manageable” to “mountains”. I’m going to catch up on these posts in the moments when I can’t handle folding one more plain white undershirt.

Sunday:

SUPER PROUD 3 YEAR OLD

Really excited about his insane milkshake

Making the exact same face as Evan above

Monday:

He loves this, I swear

Upsidedown Lincoln

Lego Batman on repeat

Tuesday:

Sunflower day

Family picture

Ready for the cow train

Wednesday:

I’m signing him up for gymnastics

Friends who love your baby are the best

Thursday:

The ocean

Looking for rocks

Weirdos

Friday:

The kids were fascinated with this thing at Stop & Shop

More lake

Finn really likes Cheetos

Saturday:

Pretending I’m a good Navy spouse by making calendar pages

In between laundry loads I also managed to order the week’s groceries and plan the kids fall activities schedule with reminders to register them for various activities as soon as they open. I still need to find Lincoln a morning activity besides swim (the gymnastic class I wanted is only in the afternoon) to help him get some of his wiggles out before afternoon pre-k. The plan is to make all four children as tired as possible so they go to bed by 7:30 every night. A+ PARENTING.

Still several weeks behind. I’m at the point where I can’t remember what some of these photos are from. I’m also very surprised by how often we leave the house, because it definitely feels like we spend most days shouting at each other in the living room.

Monday:

Caroline is currently obsessed with bows

Should I eat these animal crackers or the shoe? It’s a hard decision.

Such a cutie

Tuesday:

Catching creatures in the Mystic River

Ok, bye, check in later?

I should set up a tub and washboard at home.

Wednesday:

Lake fun

Lake nap

Thursday:

Super fun art activity at Lutz Children’s Museum

Hello turtle friend

REAL LIFE HEIHEI

Friday:

Friends at the lake

Baby at the beach

Lake life is exhausting

Saturday:

Look at that enormous baby

He can sleep ANYWHERE

Trying to get his own snacks now

Less than a week until birthday party go time and I literally cannot reach my dining room table because of the sheet rock all over the room. Which is great! Fine! I’m sure I can get ALL the party planning done between 8 pm Friday and 2 pm Saturday.

I HAVE LIGHTS IN MY KITCHEN THAT WORK. They’re actually insanely bright, daylight bulbs and I want to just live in my kitchen now. I mean, except for the fact that it’s filthy and the walls aren’t finished. BUT, LIGHTS!

Sunday:

Mystic family time

Miniature figure heads

This puzzle is really hard

Monday:

Mommy, take my picture

Finn wanted a picture too

Shirts for the book themed birthday party!

Tuesday:

Rainy day seaport camp drop off

Wednesday:

Batman on a dog sled

Super into his ice cream

CLAM STRIP APPRECIATION CLUB MEETING

Thursday:

Basically my life in one photo

Climbing the rigging!

Friday:

“Moby Dik”, obviously

Out walking again

Saturday:

Hemming my husband’s uniform pants, like a good wife in 1950.

Nature center collection

Even more walking

I have one more week to get my life and house together before Linc and Finn’s birthday party. I can only do that once the sheetrock gets out of my dining room. Pray for me.
