Weekend-ing 41

I was in a sick person funk this weekend. I stayed home mostly and did nothing. I had been feeling like shit on Thursday and Friday and then Saturday it was the peak of shit where I had to CANCEL a drink date with Claire… so you know it was bad.

I mean, don’t get me wrong. It was a Christmas prep bonanza weekend. Fae basically never stopped making that face.

…Or that face.

On Saturday morning we decorated the tree. Gabriel made sure all the ornaments were snuggling.

Kamel decided to take the ornament hooks out of their little box and toss them in a bowl. And then I murdered him with my eyes.

Look with your eyes not with your hands.

Look with your eyes… oh fuck it.

Saturday morning was all about pushing Fae around on this elephant as fast as Gabriel could go and me stopping them before they crashed into our walls or tree or flung Fae from the moving vehicle.

We basically stayed in our pajamas all weekend. The fact that this is SO incredibly rare in our house means we should probably do it more often.

Fae hasn’t learned the concept of taking turns yet.

And then we headed over to my parent’s house to celebrate my mom’s belated birthday! Sometimes it takes a village to put shoes on.

Dear Lord in Heaven I love a veggie plate.

My parents had picked up little piggy banks for the kids while they were in Arizona. Putting coins into the piggies entertained Gabe and Fae for a solid 30 minutes. I ate chips.

  1. Ahaha, I enjoyed all of this but this line: “Putting coins into the piggies entertained Gabe and Fae for a solid 30 minutes. I ate chips.” This is the epitome of a good weekend, motherhood style. High five!
