PHOTOS & WORDS
Today was an interesting weather day: it called for both rain and sun. As such, girlie wore shorts, rainboots & jacket and took her sunglasses to daycare. She even asked me, “Can I bring a ‘rainbrella’ to Sarah’s”. Fun fact: we joke about “Jess-ism’s” in our house. These “ism’s” are all the funny things I have said over the years. Rainbrella is a term I coined in 2003. It would seem girlie is catching onto my lingo.
Although I was ridiculously late for drop off, I was able to get out of the house, 2 kids and all! Bonus points: everyone washed, fully clothed and fed. Am I a miracle worker? No I am just a mom.
If you came to visit me, you would find me here, holding Sam, drinking coffee, looking at my iPhone on the couch, most days. Some days I switch it up and hang out on my bed. I am almost 4 weeks post op and I am itching to start running.
Sam went to his first movie today. He and mama give the new Guy Ritche film, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. two thumbs up!
He shoots out the door like a bullet every time I come home. It’s like he worries, we will never take him out.
Someone made a birthday “book” for their daddy for his special day. Apparently she understands her father’s love of reading.
His and her’s takeout. His: Deluxe Hand tossed pizza. Hers: Hawaiian thin crust.
Everyone is excited when the birthday “boy” comes home. Not pictured here: Charlie mauling Aaron.
Everyone drinking for their party glasses. Good times at the table.
This guy was super alert today even in his daddy’s arms.
We are in the process of establishing new normals and new routines. I thought leaving the house was challenging before, doing it with two kids takes it to a whole new level. Rowan will start kindergarten in a few weeks; and although her school is two blocks away, I wonder if I will continue to be able to have everyone ready before we leave the house. Organization is key.
I am grateful to switch up my routine and to go to the movies. Treating myself to a show is a great way for me to rejuvenate and identify with my pre children self. I am hoping to continue to see a movie when R goes to school and we have an early pick up time.
