My Week(257) in iPhone Photos

Monday, October 5th, 2015

Pretend today is Sunday instead of Monday and this isn’t super late. Except that if it was Sunday I wouldn’t be getting this nice 60 minutes of quiet to watch Dateline repeats and blog because my baby decided sleeping was stupid and we spent the whole day outside trying to wear him (and the big kids) out. So just forgive me for being late.

Sunday:

Sleep! That’s where I’m a protractor! (Most random kid’s meal toy ever.)

My computer just decided NOW would be an ideal time to start acting up, so I’m going to go bang my head against a wall and moan. Seems like the best use of my time. I would really like it if things could just be NORMAL and BORING and AVERAGE for the rest of the week. Boring sounds really nice right now.

Once again I DID a lot more stuff than my photos show. When I have my big girl camera with me I have a hard time remembering to use my phone to also take photos so you get a lot of babywearing selfies in this post.

saturday3

She wouldn’t even let me wash it off before bed

This week is our first full week with EVERYTHING: Judo, ballet, swim and soccer. It’s good and bad. I like keeping the kids really busy even in after-school hours because if they’re doing an activity then they’re not staring at the ipad or the tv. But when they get really tired they’re walking time bombs of tears and disappointment. We’re still working on the balance, especially because our weekends have also been really full. Maybe once the weather isn’t so fantastic we’ll stay inside and all take naps on Saturdays.

This week is Week 2 Of All The Fall Activities Starting which means we add Judo for Evan. I’m really hoping it helps with his ability to focus on something OTHER than an iPad and maybe control his body a little bit more when it comes to school. So now we’re up to Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday activities. Next week we add swim.

My hope is eventually we’ll all be so tired we sleep 12 hours a night every night. I am totally up for a 6 pm bedtime.

My Week(253) in iPhone Photos

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.
