This weekend was fantastic! We had lots of really fun family time, we had grown up time with actual adults where we MINGLED. We got to play out side, we visited family, we installed a new shower caddy thingy that replaced our old one that was covered in RUST, I made raspberry lemon muffins, the world felt good and right again.
Little fingers could barely contain themselves.
“Snacks, yes? Nummies? Yes?”
“We have to wait for them to cool.”
“Nummies? Yes? Yes. nummies?”
How can you say no to that face? You cannot.
We could have stood throwing rocks into the water until Gabe shriveled up and died and he would have been happy.
Let me tell you a story about my small victory. There was a log floating along in the water, so my parents, Kamel and I tried to be the first to hit it with a rock. And after many attempts, who was the first to smack it? ME! HAHA! VICTORY IS MINE!! Who needs TV when you can throw rocks at a floating log?
Gabriel wanted to become one with the sea and the stone and took much cajoling to come home with us.
Remember that lamp we bought last weekend? Well it had a short life in our house when we decided we didn’t like it. Bye lamp!
Spaghetti and meatballs at gr. grandma’s house.
The only place I want to be on a Sunday night, AMIRIGHT?!
#bighairdontcare Successful weekend!
Claire’s open house, visiting with Kathleen and Devin and many other grown ups in the land of grown ups without children present and without the need to parent anyone. Did I mention the other grownups?
How many muffins I ate.
Gabe mocking Kamel and saying “nonononono” at him.
Walking in the rain with my husband on our way home from grown up time and loving a tiny slice of parenting freedom.
How many dance moves Gabe has.
