Sunday morning I took Alex to the pool, just me and him. Best morning date ever. CANNON BALL! (Please ignore the muscles on his sides, that means he's a boy and not a baby and I'm not ready for that.)
Monday the PTA sent home a huge packet of information and Comic Sans was displayed in every shade. Then as a twin mom, I got a bonus packet of the same information the next day in the same terrible font. Twins = double the font trouble.
Tuesday unfortunately brought a lot of sadness as my friend Heather's mom passed away. I could write a whole post but I will just say - Call your mom today. Say hi.
I ordered some flowers from a group of us. Flower money goes SO MUCH farther in NC than it ever did in Chicago or San Francisco.
On Tuesday afternoon I watched Jon walk the boys home from the bus stop from my office window.
Wednesday I spent a lot of quality time on twitter while watching my favorite dancer rock the stage. I voted 100 times. Team Melanie 4eva.
Thursday I made the unfortunate mistake of blogging about how GREAT our kindergarten transition was going. Thursday was the FIRST TIME the boys have EVER gone four days in a row with no nap and they were COMPLETELY INSANE. They haven't been that insane since they dropped to one nap. And since I was solo parenting, I made the wise decision to enhance my dinner of Trader Joe's fishsticks with some pimento cheese and guacamole.
Don't worry, I've been getting some morning runs in to make sure I can eat as much pimento cheese and guacamole as I want. This greenway is 0.2 miles from my front doorstep. I love the nature of NC. Except I could do without the noseeums and mosquitoes.
Friday evening I will toast Jon returning home and probably enjoy some cocktails on the screened porch (see previously: noseeums and mosquitoes) because we are having a break in the hot weather (only 87 today!!!).
In the meantime, when people ask my secret for getting two kids to smile and laugh for photos? You have to be SILLY.
It's been a long time since I posted a kitchen table video huh Lindsay? I NEVER get tired of hearing my kids laugh.
