My Week(233) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, April 19th, 2015

This week was spring break. We didn’t go anywhere in the stay-over-night-on-vacation sense, but we did go do a lot of things. Especially Caroline and I – we are cut from the same cloth that refuses to just sit on the couch on a sunny day. We need to go “do fun things”.

Sunday:

sunday1

Can’t stop won’t stop visiting the goats (except probably now, since all the baby goats are getting big)

sunday2

Treat yo’ self

sunday3

Evening walk

Monday:

monday1

Not a real cow

monday2

So excited about the zoo he fell asleep

monday3

Art in motion

Tuesday:

tuesday1

Band-aids are really exciting

tuesday2

This is not a good wrap job but the wrap is so pretty I don’t care

tuesday3

If you give a baby a flashlight, he will think that is the best thing ever

Wednesday:

wednesday1

During the treasure hunt, a pirate asked them to sing a pirate song, so they both sang “Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!”

wednesday2

That hat though

wednesday3

Seriously. The hat.

Thursday:

thursday1

I thought a nice long walk would be fun. They disagreed.

thursday2

Caroline arranged her own storytime at the library, despite the fact that a) she can’t read and b) she doesn’t know that girl

thursday3

Don’t let the cute messy face distract you from the path of destruction behind him

Friday:

friday1

Maybe I should try to teach her to read

friday2

Hide out

friday3

That’s his concentrating face

Saturday:

saturday1

She is very disappointed that no REAL birds will get to enjoy the houses she decorated for them

saturday2

Wearing his new hat while we enjoy dinner on a deck

saturday3

These kids, you guys

I am BEAT and I feel about a million years old. I wish I could sleep for 24 hours straight. I feel like I’m right on the edge of getting sick and I do not have TIME to be sick. The kids are supposed to start soccer this week but somehow soccer (which is supposed to be Monday/Wednesday) is now on Thursday during the same time as swim. Obviously they can’t be swimming WHILE playing soccer so I’m going to have to get swim moved (there are other swim classes, there’s just one soccer team). But this swim session is really full and it’s going to be SUCH a pain to work out. I’m dreading making that phone call but both soccer and swim cost too much money to just skip. Stupid sports.

The weather is finally warm enough that I’m confident it’s time to switch out everyone’s wardrobes, but that means it’s time to sort out the donate/consign/pass on piles. Just ONE kid’s clothes could keep me busy for a week – and I have 3 kids with way too much stuff. I suspect absolutely nothing from last year will fit anyone (especially Linc, since he didn’t exist this time last year) so I will be forced to buy EVEN MORE stuff. Stupid stuff.

Thank God spring break is over. I’ve become just a whiny as my children.

Monday, April 6th, 2015

I have both Easter pictures and Evan’s birthday post to write, but instead of eating Easter candy I stole from the kids and sitting on the couch this morning I went for a walk. I am feeling the “summer is coming” stress and really regreting bascially everything I’ve eaten for the last 9 months, so I’m making a conscious effort to increase my activity level and decrease my candy consumption. At least I will, after all these Reeses Eggs are gone.

Sunday:

sunday1

When it comes to vintage spring dresses, she’s covered

sunday2

HEY GUYS I FOUND THE EGGS THEY’RE OVER HERE

sunday3

I sold this wrap. I’m pretty sure it was because of this picture.

Monday:

monday1

We did this a lot this week

monday2

No, that’s not disturbing

monday3

This art is delicious

Tuesday:

tuesday1

That’s supposed to be MY spot

tuesday2

Happy to be outside

tuesday3

WTF is this? It doesn’t look like nursies.

Wednesday:

wednesday1

Caroline the creeper

wednesday2

Every. Single. Wall.

wednesday3

Sad baby needs daddy cuddles

Thursday:

thursday1

He loves the baby in the mirror

thursday2

Porch ennui

thursday3

LASHES

Friday:

friday1

The kids have asked to have this happen again EVERY DAY since

friday2

Neither of these children plays piano

friday3

Sure. Go ahead and eat that cardboard. Hashtag third child.

Saturday:

saturday1

Saturday morning photo session

saturday2

Why are you letting this goat eat me?

saturday3

I’m going to steal this one.

I need a weekend to recover from our super busy weekend. I also need the weather to get above 70 degrees just for ONE DAY so I can open every window in the house. “Fresh linen” scented candles can only do so much when you haven’t had any fresh air inside in 6 months. Plus we all pretty much permanently smell like goats, so that’s not helping.

Then THIS happened and decided I needed more babies immediately

I am seriously having a hard time caring about anything right now because I’m so done with winter. If I could open the front door and let the kids play on the porch I would be SO READY to do some spring cleaning but since it’s 28 degrees out I just want to go take a nap. And I don’t want to cook anything. Or go anywhere. Or talk to anyone. Or blog about anything.

The kids and I are all playing hooky tomorrow because half day + appointments + cranky baby = too much of a mess to handle. I’m hoping it resets everyone’s attitude because we ALL need it.

Wine and a heating pad for my horrible sinus pain. Neither helped.

You can tell the weather is warming up because she moved from sleeping right next to the electric heater to the sunshine spot

saturday2

Caroline wants to take off her coat (it was like, 34 degrees)

saturday3

Birthday party crazy

I think I am allergic to March, because everything is still so frozen and snow-covered there’s no way this crazy sinus pain is related to actual allergies. There’s no pollen yet! Nothing is blooming! Why do my eyeballs feel like they’re going to burst out of my head?!

I gave in and took a Sudafed (the non-meth-making kind) and it helped a lot, but it also hurts my milk supply so I can’t make it a regular thing. Although I suppose I could just chug water and eat a ton of cookies and say the calories are “for the baby”. That sounds like it might help with the sinus pain too.
