No break for Mommy.
and no sanity.
The last couple of weeks, however, have been a total blur.
Busy isn't even the word for it.
And honestly, I'm liking the busyness much better than the boredom.
I did a whole lot of hanging out with this little guy.
Look at that little man. 9 months and sporting a 'stashe already.
I'm so proud.
And took Avery to her first gymnastics lesson.
The cuteness was almost too much to handle.
I seriously giggled through the entire lesson.
She looked like such a big girl, but so teeny tiny at the same time.
We went to some high-class eating establishments with our high-class kiddos.
And took the family to watch a baseball game.
Charlie was beside himself with excitement.
Avery loved it too.
Until she saw the team's giant mascot.
It took quite a bit of convincing to help her understand that the giant bird/man wasn't coming to get her.
I finally told her he wasn't allowed to come up to the stands. That did the trick.
You do what'cha gotta do.
I helped this cute
Oh the excitement of starting a fresh, new chapter in life! Can you see it in her face?
And- oh my goodness - I made my first applique ever at Craft Club.
In true Jennifer fashion, I've become officially obsessed.
I'm appliqueing everything.
It's almost as bad as my obsession with the Podge o' Modge.
And last week, I celebrated the first day of Preschool with these little guys.
Evidently, this is Charlie's favorite spot in his classroom.
After his first day, his teacher said, "Charlie loves the mirror. Well, all the babies love the mirror... but Charlie REALLY loves the mirror."
Last week was also my first day back to the Preschool in 9 months. I'm so excited to be teaching a few days a week. It's divine. I seriously love it.
Life's been busy, but I think I'd take busy over bored any day. There are not many things in this world more frightening than a bored toddler.
Health Care Reform?
A bored toddler is definitely more scarey.
