My Week(278) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, February 28th, 2016

The weather this week was so up and down and up and down that I’m pretty sure it’s given me a horrible head cold. Which is just what I needed to start another busy week.

It’s a literally Shark Tank

I was going to watch the Oscars tonight but it seems like taking something for my headache and going to bed at 9 pm is a better idea. Because it turns out that Monday is still going to happen tomorrow and I have to get these kids up and fed and pack their lunches even if I don’t feel great. It’s total bullshit.

This week I also need to start getting our summer schedule sorted out, since it’s almost March and I’m already getting second reminder registration forms. WHAT KIND OF MOTHER AM I EVEN?! How come I don’t know where my kids will be the first week of August?! What am I planning to do, just let them stay HOME and watch TV??? They’ll never get into college.

My Week(199) in iPhone Photos

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Next week will be 200 WEEKS of iPhone photos, which is a lot of weeks. It will also be total chaos, between two different classroom orientations, two different start times, two buses, two schools, my first attempts at lunch-packing, all with a newborn in tow. Don’t be shocked if every photo is of a large Dunkin iced coffee. This week, no coffee, but certainly some questionable food choices.

Sunday:

sunday1

Watching HGTV while the kids destroy the house. This is our default mode.

sunday2

BEBEH SOCKS

sunday3

It took me a minute to figure out “Chief + Mrs. Davis” meant E + me. Formal titles are weird.

Everything is awesome…when you have a new Lego set

Friday:

The Dread Pirate Evan

Welcome to the jungle, we’ve got…cheesy music and a jingly lion

Baby Linc wants to know how long before he can have Five Guys

Saturday:

saturday1

That little finger just kills me

saturday2

Baby’s first restaurant! My kids are so New England.

saturday3

Caroline ordered spaghetti and meatballs and ate a REALLY impressive amount

So far my plan to Stay On Top Of Things is going really well, if you don’t count Linc’s first month update and this post both being a day late. The sink is still empty and clean, the toys are still organized and (mostly) off the floor, and I made it to the grocery store to get school lunch supplies. Now we’ll see how long actually MAKING lunch lasts before I start offering money for hot lunch instead.

My Week(179) in iPhone Photos

Monday, April 7th, 2014

Forgive me, it was party week, so I am late. Basically everything between now and August will be late, although my only real excuse will be “pregnant” or “giving birth”. Those actually sound like better excuses than a 5 year old’s birthday though.

Sunday:

sunday1

Random 6 am barfing = morning bath

sunday2

Clearly she felt much better a few hours later

sunday3

This is not actually very good, but that did not stop me from eating it with a spoon

Monday:

monday1

I HATE YOU SNOW

monday2

TA-DA!

monday3

Helping

Tuesday:

tuesday1

Pirate Fairy Day. It was really all we did.

tuesday2

Dancing to the pirate song

Flip-flop weather!!

Helping me make frosting is THE BEST THING EVAAAAAR

We had houseguest coming, so I cleaned while the kids had a lazy day.

Very, very lazy.

I found these two like this.

Bump.

AHOY! BIRTHDAY AHEAD!!

Front porch party mess

Evan got TWO of these rockets for his birthday and they are both his favorite. Highly recommend for any kid.

Even for us, that week involved a lot of dress up. My laundry pile is sort of insane right now, but I HAVE TO FINISH MY TAXES. I HAVE TO. RIGHT NOW. NOTHING ELSE IS BEING DONE UNTIL I FINISH THEM.

I figure if I type that enough times I might actually do it. Anyone want to barter tax prep services for a photo shoot next year? Or you can come punch me repeatedly in the face. Or how about a kid? I will give you this next baby if you agree to do my taxes forever. (Not really, but it’s tempting. I’m really, really overwhelmed.)

p.s. It is supposed to be 65 degrees tomorrow and I will probably take the kids to the beach. Because that’s how we roll in New England.

p.p.s. My birthday is Thursday. I’m getting my teeth cleaned.

My Week(175) in iPhone Photos

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!

Sunday:

sunday1

It was so much easier to say “No, I’ll just have a salad” before they put a Five Guys in my town.

sunday2

BEST KIND. Anyone who disagrees is just wrong.

sunday3

Can I get 3 million shares on my blog post for taking this? No?

Monday:

monday1

Cute from the back…

monday2

…cute from the front.

monday3

Editing isn’t so bad when this is the baby you stare at for hours.

Tuesday:

tuesday1

Refusing to go to school until they see Idina & The Roots sing Let It Go

tuesday2

Basically heaven for a 3 year old

tuesday3

Yo ho let’s go!

Wednesday:

wednesday1

Somehow climbing in the snow is STILL fun for them

wednesday2

I am extremely jealous of their swim classes

wednesday3

I was conned into buying toddler Elsa because Caroline now recognizes “Sale” signs at Target

Thursday:

thursday1

Why 3 year olds should not use mascara

thursday2

Jaunty!

thursday3

It’s crazy hair day every day in our house

Friday:

friday1

More pirates! it’s an invasion!

friday2

A rare look at the room I was attempting to “take back” from the children. It’s not going so well.

friday3

He insists on “swimming” in the bath now.

Saturday:

saturday1

The friendliest koi fish ever

saturday2

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).

Let’s Play with Hello Kitty and the KuKee App

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and KuKee, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #helllokittyletsplay  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.

I told Caroline we were going shopping for Hello Kitty clothes at the mall and she turned to our cat and said “HELLO! Kitty! Hello!”

But she figured it out pretty quick when we got there. So much pink! So many ruffles!
