No post today.
I just got back from dinner with friends and like usual we talked way too much and stayed way too long and were kicked out of the restaurant again.
Now it’s late and I’m tired.
I haven’t posted much this week, have I?
I’ve been busy organizing and decorating.
And doing all things kids because my husband has been traveling for work all week.
Which by the way is hard, but is getting less hard. Every night after homework/baths/dinner I would say “girls – while I get Kole to bed go upstairs, pick up your rooms, lay out tomorrow’s outfit and brush your teeth. I’ll be up in a minute.”
And guess what?
They did it.
I feel like I am entering a new stage of parenting. The girls are getting more and more independent and Kole just stopped napping last week. (Which btw I love at noon when we aren’t scheduling around a nap but hate at 4:00 when he’s tired and melting down and it’s too early to put him to bed). I am now officially out of the baby stage. My little buddy is still a handful but the girls are a big help. The norm has been that when I reach this slightly easier stage I have another baby. But this time I’m not.
And that feels sad. And nice. All at the same time.
I am so looking forward to this year. I just want to really enjoy my kids. With no distractions. From a new baby. Or a new house. Or anything else. They are growing up so fast. My Ellie is turning TEN this weekend. Ten! I can’t even believe that.
I’ve been planning a birthday sleepover party for her and her friends.
In between the organizing and decorating and mothering.
It’s going to be a panda explosion like no other.
I have to show you something cool. That has nothing to do with a girls’ night out or parenting or anything else I’m randomly mumbling about tonight.
Technically I’m typing, not mumbling but you know what I mean.
Check out one of my new little lemon trees in our backyard!
I guess I do have a post today. If I
mumble type about everything and nothing and show you a picture of something, I can technically count it as a post, right?
It’s the “no post” post.
I warned you I was tired.
Have a great weekend everyone!
So very happy it’s here.
