Here’s another parenting confession. I recently looked at Kelsey and said, “Stop acting like such a baby”. Yes, I see the irony in that now. PS – You can read my first parenting confession here.
This year, we decided to kick it old school and trade in the white icicle lights for colored bulbs. So, there my husband was, standing in line at Home Depot on Black Friday for $2 LED multi-colored lights (reg. $11/ box). He did a fabulous job of hanging up the lights on our two-story house and – might I add – he looked so graceful in his Christmas light poses.
The Frog pose.
The Bear Hug.
I’ll snap some photos of the finished product because he did amazing!
Ryan and I drove away from Zoolights last night in complete happiness. In almost the same breath, we said, “This should be our new tradition”. And so, it is. Every year, the weekend after Thanksgiving, we’ll take the kids to Zoolights - a night where our Zoo decorates the entire place in shiny lights. The zoo is […]
On Tuesday, I had Thanksgiving lunch with Kelsey at her school (Ryan couldn’t make it because he had double pink eye). Kelsey sported a paper hat and an enormous bib. We sat at the world’s smallest table and chairs and ate turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans and apple juice. Kelsey was so surprised to see me […]
If Kelsey could blog, I’m sure she would write everything that she is thankful for. I can only imagine it would go something like this: Mommy, daddy, Logan, Miles, my grandmas and grandpas, aunts and uncles. My Elmo, baby doll and bathtub friends. My baby stroller, Yo Gabba Gabba on DVR, red nail polish and the time spent […]
… here we are, dashing through dinner with a toddler. See how fast she moves? Even our flash can’t keep up! We went to a local pizzeria for dinner on Friday night and I think we ate our pizza in record speed – all thanks to a cute toddler with ants in her pants.
Sunday afternoon brought amazing weather, so we took Kelsey bug to get ice cream before nap time (rookie move on our part) followed by some holiday shopping. I was teaching Kelsey how to shop while Ryan was teaching her how climb trees. This day, like all of the others, started ordinary and became extraordinary … just because Kelsey was in it.
As a first time mom, I have a few parenting confessions to make. As I learn the ropes of this new world, I’ll post some of my confessions here. Here’s my first one. You do this too, right? Click here to view past Motivational Monday posts. These posts will return next Monday. Promise.
This website isn’t visually stunning, but it has many Black Friday 2011 ads (day after Thanksgiving) from popular retailers in the United States. I’ve been looking at ads to see which one’s will make me run out of bed in a frenzy, and which retailers have their Black Friday deals online. Check this website out. […]
