My Week(238) in iPhone Photos

Monday, May 25th, 2015

Holiday weekend = I don’t even know what day it is anymore. E had Friday off but is at work today, but was home for Saturday and Sunday so we were out of the house the WHOLE time. This is the first time I have even touched my laptop. I sense that might happen a lot this summer, since our default activity is “swimming at the lake” and that means way less screen time. Not a bad thing.

Sunday:

sunday1

Sleep in the morning

sunday2

Sleep in the afternoon

sunday3

Party all night!

Monday:

If there is water around, this child will end up in it.

monday2

Downtown New London

This is her swim pose, according to her

Tuesday:

Shouting at the neighbors

tuesday2

I’m hoping the baby is cute enough to make up for my crow’s feet. SHEESH.

tuesday3

LOUNGING

Wednesday:

There were like 50 of these photos on my phone. I’m guessing Caroline took them.

That’s Caroline up in my custom wrap. We ALL love it.

saturday2

New photo opp at the aquarium

saturday3

They are both fans of dads wearing babies

I can’t believe I have to pack THREE more weeks of lunches for Evan. I am so, so ready to have the kids home for the summer. I realize in a month and a half I’ll be screaming “OMG WHEN DO THEY GO BACK TO SCHOOOOL??” but right now the beautiful weather + wanting to sleep in + our new lake beach club membership = ready for summer. I just need the water to get a TINY bit warmer so Linc and I can swim/float around. Right now he’s mostly eating sand, which he enjoys on the way in but does not enjoy on the way out.

I’m already 2 days late for Linc’s 10 monthday update post, but I swear I’ll do it this week. I also have two posts with actual words almost done, so this might be a record week for me – I haven’t blogged that much in years. CAN YOU HANDLE IT, INTERNETS? Of course you can. It’s not that interesting.

He was showing her the school because she’ll go there next year too

Linc is not the step-and-repeat expert Caroline is yet.

saturday2

This is not a very good picture but I love it so, so much. They’re closing the FAO Schwarz in New York and I’m so excited the kids got to visit.

saturday3

New York wore him OUT

I have a severe case of the End Of Year Moms and almost no motivation to do anything besides take the kids fun places and drink iced coffees. I’m fighting hard to make it to June before I start letting the kids skip to go to the beach just because it’s too hot to sit on the couch with a baby on me. We have a lot of summer fun planned and I’m afraid we won’t have time for all the un-planned fun as well. This past weekend in NYC was a good start but we have a LOT more to do.

I am apparently allergic to everything that is blooming/growing at the moment. I ran through all the OTC drugs I had and I’m afraid to buy anything else in case the cops show up to look for my meth lab. Plus I can’t take any GOOD stuff because I’m nursing. If spring is going to kick my ass this much I would really appreciate it being warm enough to actually BE OUTSIDE.

Sunday:

sunday1

Those are actually suck pads for my Tula, not elbow decorations, but don’t tell her.

sunday2

I’m not exactly sure WHY Anna and Elsa were at the horse farm, but Caroline enjoyed it

sunday3

Stop being a jerk, Zebra-Donkey

Monday:

monday1

He’s pleased with himself

She said she’s building a fairy house

Swim girl

Tuesday:

tuesday1

How does a baby who can’t dress himself lose so many shoes?

tuesday2

Look at the little fox with the camera!

tuesday3

First day of soccer

Wednesday:

wednesday1

I did a LOT of babywearing this week

wednesday2

It was not actually as warm as it looks. He just really wanted to touch the grass.

wednesday3

He nurses like this every time.

Thursday:

thursday1

It SNOWED while we were outside

thursday2

Evan switched to the U8 soccer team instead of the beginners, so we’re at soccer for 2 hours. Which is NOT FUN when it’s SNOWING.

thursday3

Sight words today, learning about copyright infrigement tomorrow

Friday:

friday1

Practicing

friday2

Happy baby

friday3

Unimpressed with the outlet mall

Saturday:

Helping me with the seasonal clothing switch

saturday2

Very excited about Moe’s

THIS BRUSH IS DELICIOUS

This is our second week with our new very busy schedule. I really hope the baby and my allergies let me sleep enough to survive it. I would give almost anything for 12 hours of uninterrupted sleep. It’s amazing how quickly a few bad nights catch up with you. I should in fact be sleeping right now but I was a) finishing this post and b) watching episodes of Call the Midwife I didn’t realize were new and my DVR was kindly recording for me.

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.

This week (the one I am typing in, not the one in the pictures) is spring break and the weather finally got the memo so I am tempted to turn off my laptop, toss it in a closet and not look at it again until the weather gets back below 50 degrees. Hopefully, that doesn’t happen again until October.
