I came home and the house felt so strange and quiet without the girls. It made me sad and lonely for about ten minutes and then Kole and I started cleaning and I quickly got over being sad and was loving how much I was able to get done with only one "helper" in the house. I seriously scrubbed my house from top to bottom.
I especially attacked the playroom with a vengeance! (Quick shout out for The Wiggles who kept my little one entertained while I worked. Greg, Murry, Anthony, Jeff - you are my heros and I love you.) I was so anxious to resume some order in my house after having very little control all summer long.
last year with daughter #1.
Last weekend we celebrated Kenny's birthday. I felt bad because this was NOT my best year as far as planning goes. In past years I have written posts about 33 things I love about him (the age he was turning), thrown surprise parties with friends, and have given him little surprises all week leading up to the big day. This year? I couldn't even get a babysitter so we could go out! I think I called over ten girls - all busy. Plus the week before was so busy with back to school shopping and I had all three kids at home so his gifts were less than stellar. His birthday came and went and was for the most part like a typical Sunday. (I'm totally linking to past birthday posts in hopes that Kenny will read this and remember that I actually am a good wife, just one who is having an off year...)
I did manage to put together this bulletin board for the kids to give him. He has been saying he'd like some of the kids' artwork to hang in his office and I thought this would look better than random drawings all over the place.
**Happy Birthday babe! Sorry your day was so lame. The good news is that #1 - I still love you the most and #2 - after the birthday you had this year, things can only go up. ;)
