I’m a little behind on documenting things so I am going to try and get a little caught up!
Last Monday we were supposed to meet some friends for dinner at Chick-fil-a. Shortly before meeting, there was a torrential downpour. We decided we didn’t feel like wrestling our kids through the rain. The kids knew about our plans and I knew when I got Ava she was going to be so sad. And she was.
Zach had to work late that night, and since we didn’t have any other dinner plans, I thought I’d just stop and pick them up dinner. Well, when we got there, there was a small lull in the rain, so I decided to be brave and we just went ahead and went in and ate.
There are definitely times for boundaries, and there are times when I enjoy being a spontaneous, yes-saying mom. These little moments with the kids are so much fun and I hope they have good memories of the yes times!
We were supposed to spend the weekend at my parents’ house because my grandmother from Illinois was going to fly in. Earlier in the week, she started having some issues and had to be hospitalized. She’s since been released, but was obviously not well enough to travel. Zach had a ton of homework and school stuff to do this weekend, so the kids and I went on without him. He ended up being sick most of the weekend with a weird little bug, so it was probably better he stayed home.
My parents have some neighbors across the street who have two little girls, one Ava’s age and one Reed’s age. Ava and the little girl have loved playing together when we’ve been there and it was so cute seeing her go across the street to see if she could play. I wish we lived in a neighborhood with lots of little neighbor friends!
We went out for dinner Saturday night and the kids were so tired they were almost delirious. Reed was eating his sopapilla and I was using the camera to take a picture of him, where he could see it. He made his eyes really big and leaned in really close to the camera. It was hysterical. Then he couldn’t stop. He’s so funny!
Ava also had a big day on Saturday, but I’ll save that for my next post!! Ok, I think that catches us up!!!!
