My Week(275) in iPhone Photos

Monday, February 8th, 2016

We had our first snow day on Friday! And we’re having our second snow day today, Monday. I’m not exactly tired of the snow but I am a liiiiiittle tired of seeing my family quite so much. I’m pretty sure they feel exactly the same way.

Parenting level up: getting a beer out of a cooler on the floor with a baby on your head

We wasted today’s snow day doing literally nothing. Which is fine, I like doing nothing. But I really hope we have normal school tomorrow so Linc and I can go do nothing at Target with a latte instead of on the couch while three children scream at each other. Plus we’re out of essentials like potato chips and bacon, so I’m going to HAVE to leave the house.

February already feels like the longest month ever and it’s only the 8th.

SNOW DAY 2016

Friday, February 5th, 2016

Today was our first snow of the winter, and possibly the only one we’re going to get. Our weather has been unseasonably warm (no complaints) and the kids have been dying for a chance to build snowmen and do other normal New Englandy winter stuff. A Friday snow day is the very best scenario. I’m tired of the school routine, I was planning to stay home with Linc all day anyway, we have a bunch of food, and my husband will probably be home early. Which is exactly what happened. Plus it wasn’t even that cold, so playing outside was fun instead of terrible.

p.s. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned Caroline’s snowsuit before. I got it at a consignment store last winter and it is the BEST. It’s from Hanna Andersson and is technically “baby” sized but still fits her this year. If you ever see one of these at a tag sale or thrift store, grab it up.

Monday, February 1st, 2016

It’s 60+ degrees today. I went on a lovely 4 mile hike by the ocean with a fr iend this morning without a coat – although the baby on my back counts as an extra layer. It was SO NICE to be outside and feeling like spring is on the way. Even if we get 5 feet of snow this month at least we’re not suffering through another endlessly cold, dark, snowy winter.

THE GIRL’S TEAM WON BOTH GAMES IT’S A HAND AND FOOT MIRACLE

I’m afraid I’ve lost the ability to speak English. No one in my family seems to understand me when I talk, so that seems like the most likely explanation. Either that or they’ve all suddenly gone deaf, which might ALSO explain why they are SO LOUD ALL THE TIME.

That’s probably what happened.

My Week(273) in iPhone Photos

Monday, January 25th, 2016

I don’t know, guys. My iPhone photos are getting worse and worse and I’m not sure this is even a thing worth posting anymore. I only do it because it seems like such a shame to quit now – I have every day of our lives since I was pregnant with CAROLINE documents in iPhone photos. But they’re not good photos. And I should really push myself to post actual content on the blog if I’m going to bother to blog at all, instead of just doing this once a week. I’m conflicted.

She has given up on life because she can’t go out and build a snowman in a blizzard

We did not get the same giant storm that my parents did down in DC, but we got a few inches. The weather the rest of this week is supposed to be surprisingly warm, which means all that snow will melt and things will be boring and brown again. But it ALSO means we won’t have to sell any kidneys to afford oil to heat the house, so it’s a toss-up really. I’m still trying to find our floors after the combination of party-blizzard-snow day, because the kids seriously just destroyed EVERYTHING. It’s hard to find motivation when they’re just going to destroy stuff again.

I’ve already reached DESPONDENCE and it’s not even February. Send all the sunshine and salted caramel ice cream immediately.

January is just crawling by. It’s dark. It’s cold. The kids are making me INSANE every second they are home and not involved in a structured activity. They won’t stop torturing each other but they refuse to be separated. I feel so much sympathy for my own mother, since I’m pretty sure I was EXACTLY the same way with my sister as a child.

OK, I guess comforting his crying sister means he isn’t THAT much of a jerk

I have my first photoshoot of the year tomorrow and there is SNOW on the ground. I don’t know if my clients are super thrilled but I sure am. It’s going to be gorgeous. But cold. Super cold. So I plan to spend the rest of the day (no school!) hiding under a blanket while my husband (no work!) keeps the children from killing each other. Because that is what I do on the days HE has work. I AM REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.
