April Update

Happy Friday!

I haven't blogged in approximately forever - something about being pregnant and having the three kids I suppose. I'm sleeping a lot more these days.

We've had a good couple of weeks: I had my "weekend off" which was amazingly refreshing. We celebrated Blue Eyes' 2nd birthday with a Dino themed party (yes we watched the Land Before Time).

I cleaned and organized (thanks Container Store!) our master closet so it no longer looks like a hoarder's retreat.


We spent much of last week reflecting on the significance of Good Friday and the resurrection. I even remembered to take family pictures of everyone all prettied up for church.

The Squirt now has a chore chart  (it's SUPER official) as he is trying to earn enough money to buy himself a 'real' bow and arrow. Why we keep allowing more weapons in this house is a mystery to me. They are a chief source of fighting/complaining when friends come over. (There are never enough Nerf guns, swords or nunchucks to go around. Also, obviously, someone always gets injured.) He earns a quarter each time he gathers the eggs and a quarter for unloading the dishwasher, all the other chores are expected for the privilege of living here. This boy LOVES a system folks. He comes by it honestly, there's nothing I like more than checking off a to-do list and I think his dad feels much the same way.

Today we're meeting a new friend at the park during this brief but blissful window when the pollen is mostly gone and the mosquitoes and the heat haven't made their way to Atlanta yet.

Tomorrow's plans begin and end with this event at our beloved YMCA. I don't know who is more excited, the Squirt or his dad and me. I'll try to be a good blogger and let you know how it went next week.



Enjoy the weekend y'all!
