We’ve Already Watched The Pirate Fairy DVD 4 Times

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

The Pirate Fairy

Have you seen the previews for The Pirate Fairy yet? If you have kids, I’m going to assume you have in fact seen the previews for The Pirate Fairy. More than once. I think we started seeing them before Christmas and I’ve been acutely aware of when the DVD release is (April 1st! Which is now! Now! It’s out now!!!) ever since.

Thanks to #CollectiveBias and their #ProtectPixieHollow campaign the gingers and I picked up our copy at Walmart the day it came out. I am a HERO.

Sunday, March 23rd, 2014

I did more stuff this week than I’ve done in ages. I might die. Luckily (hahahahahahahaha NO NOT LUCKILY) we’re supposed to have a snowstorm this week so we’ll probably get a weather-related vacation in the middle of the week. I would rather we have gorgeous, amazing weather and I just take a day off to lie on the couch and let my hips recover, but it looks like instead we’ll be trapped in an eternal winter. I blame Frozen.

Sunday, March 9th, 2014

It appears these are the only posts I have in me right now. It’s a weird combination of being too busy and not at all busy. I spend a lot of time on my computer doing other things (photo editing, writing Glee recaps or trashy gossip stories for my new gigs, Facebook chatting, refreshing Facebook to make sure I haven’t missed any good Buzzfeed quizes) but none of that is interesting enough to blog about.

I’m also deep in pirate party planning mode for Evan’s birthday. I remember thinking I was a crazy person when I started planning his first birthday party (Circus party! Still one of my favorites) in January, but I think starting in March is even more crazy. So much to do in so little time!

Tiny hipster children play cornhole at a brewery in an old mill. I can’t even.

saturday3

That’s the cupcake happy dance

I am the only parent in the world who doesn’t actually hate springing forward. We don’t have anywhere to be until this afternoon, which means I got to sleep in even if the kids got up to play. Plus they’ve both been falling asleep on the couch at 6 pm, so I don’t think bedtime will be too hard. Basically, I am the worst.

I am sure I will pay for it later this week when they get up at 5:30 and paint my dining room table (again).

Swinging is fun

 And now school vacation week is OVER and I get some Suzanne-time back. I love love love my children more than life itself, but there’s a point during the day where I want to lock them both in a closet. THE WHINING OH THE WHINING. It’s amazing what a difference 5 hours a week makes to my sanity and patience. Oh and P.S. World? Try not to go totally INSANE again next week, ok?

Wordless Wednesday: Pirate Days at Mystic Seaport

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

Ahoy Mateys! Pirate Days at Mystic Seaport was pretty crowded – we generally skip the Seaport on days when we won’t have the place to ourselves – and the kids varied between LOVING the pirates and HATING the pirates, but we had a pretty good time.
