My Week(353) in iPhone Photos

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 Week(290) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, May 22nd, 2016

I spent a lot of time doing fun me-things this week, like shooting photo sessions and getting my hair done. I even took a nap. It was like a mini-vacation before we go on REAL VACATION. I am very, very excited about real vacation.

New books = peace

I finally asked the elementary school when, exactly, the children get out for the summer and was pleasantly surprised it’s sooner rather than much, much later. I sent in our membership fee for the lake this week too, so pretty soon all of our life will be #lakelife and I will be a very happy, relaxed pregnant lady who can just float on a big tube and feed the children watermelon and chips.

Until then I’m going to just sit on the couch and feed the children watermelon and chips, but I will feel MUCH guiltier about it.

Sunday, September 6th, 2015

First full week of school, last weekend of the summer. The transition is going as well as I can expect, which is to say the kids are taking turns being COMPLETLY exhausted and having breakdowns. And Linc thinks he’s suddenly grown.

Sunday:

sunday1

PUMPKIN SPICE ATTACK

sunday2

Babywearing runs in the family

sunday3

Big kid doing big kid stuff

Monday:

monday1

Driving the playscape

monday2

Don’t look so judgy baby, it’s just a liquor store run.

monday3

Climber

Tuesday:

tuesday1

Apparently he’s allergic to…something? I think it’s the baby wipes.

tuesday2

School is EXHAUSTING

tuesday3

He’s obsessed

Wednesday:

wednesday1

I tried wearing lipstick. Linc thinks it’s a mistake. I think I agree.

wednesday2

OMG GUISE THIS BRIDGE THING BOUNCES

wednesday3

I joked that he was going to sleep in her bed and she was not amused

Thursday:

thursday1

Jogging! For like, 4 seconds. But I want credit.

thursday2

Connecticut ends here

thursday3

I’M TRAPPED IN A GLASS CASE OF EMOTION

Friday:

friday1

His new favorite spot

friday2

Niantic is adorable

friday3

The kids were super excited about the babywearing in this book.

Saturday:

saturday1

Apparently no one else wanted to spend a gorgeous Saturday at the lake. Idiots.

saturday2

I brought all the car wraps in to wash them. Such a pretty pile.

saturday3

So I guess he’s just big now.

We have one last #lakelife day tomorrow as long as Evan doesn’t sleep the entire day. Or I do. 8 hours of sleep would be a dream come true and because Linc didn’t get ANY nap today I have my fingers crossed he’ll let me sleep in. Our fall activity schedule starts this week and then goes into full crazy mode next week so I need as much rest as I can get. I’m already reminding myself that I did this to myself and it won’t last forever. I suspect in the spring we’ll sign up for exactly zero things to recover.

I am SO happy to have the kids back at school, even though school brings a whole new level of stress and deadlines and homework and one zillion pieces of paper that need my attention. They need the structure of school and the friends and the break from me (and my often short temper) right now. I figure by Christmas we’ll all be super excited to hang out together again. Right now I’m just going to enjoy the crap out of my one tiny baby who can’t talk back.

And if I say “Christmas” again before December, please punch me in the face.
