Share To Your Friends


She requested me to go together with her to her ice skating membership banquet two weeks in the past. And I’ve to be sincere: it was not one thing I used to be wanting ahead to.

I wouldn’t know anybody. It was 3 hours lengthy. It might imply sitting at a desk for dinner with folks I didn’t know and making small discuss (one in all my least favourite issues as an introvert!) And what was I going to put on at 9 months pregnant to a banquet??

However it was necessary to her, so I put aside my excuses, ordered a costume from Amazon, and stated sure.

Sometime quickly, my nearly 15-year-old daughter can be grown and gone. She could reside in one other city or state or nation. Lately and alternatives to go to outside-my-comfort-zone banquets collectively gained’t final without end.

Say sure, mama. Even when it’s uncomfortable.

On the finish of your life, I consider you’ll by no means remorse saying sure to your children.

By the best way, the banquet was awkward. I didn’t know anybody. The costume simply barely match. And there was a whole lot of small discuss that occurred. However Kaitlynn and I had a particular time collectively, I obtained extra of a window into her ice-skating world, and he or she and I had a whole lot of laughs collectively on the drive there and again. It was so value it!

He’s beginning to determine learn how to use a walker — which is a giant deal!

We’ve been taking numerous night walks just lately. It’s been scorching and humid in the course of the day, however after dinner, the climate has been very nice most nights and it’s the proper finish to our day!

We’ve gotten to babysit for C so much just lately and he retains us all in stitches. He’s so busy, so talkative, and at all times saying the funniest issues! (It’s onerous to consider that preemie garments have been too huge for him after we first met him within the NICU and now have a look at how huge he’s!)

D obtained to go in what they name the “Spider Cage” for the primary time in PT final week.

And he additionally obtained to check out this new machine!

I dedicated to doing one craft monthly this 12 months. This month, I made these Backpack Dangles that have been one of many Annie’s Artistic Women’ Craft Kits.

My mother and father despatched Kierstyn and D this little sink that truly has working water (you fill it up and it simply recycles via again and again). They’ve been LOVING “doing dishes” on the again screened-in porch!

Jesse and I took Kierstyn out on a date whereas Kaitlynn was at ice skating at some point this previous week. She thought it was the most effective to have one-on-one time with Mother & Dad.

We took C, D, and Kierstyn to the zoo at some point this previous week (we just lately obtained a membership). we realized that preserving them within the wagon is sensible, but in addition makes it to allow them to’t see very a lot. So Jesse improvised!

It was a HOT day on the zoo and really humid and we had some surprising issues come up that morning that meant we didn’t get to go earlier when it was cooler. However we went anyway — and we had a good time, regardless of a diaper blowout and some toddler meltdowns.

The factor I’ve realized the previous few years is that’s simple to make excuses as to why we should always simply keep house as a substitute of going out and doing one thing with littles (and even with teenagers!). However just about each time we simply get out and go or do the factor, we make recollections and I not often ever remorse it.

They spent a very long time watching the fish and have been mesmerized by them!

We liked watching this little child on its mama’s again!

I had a $15 reward card to Goal that I’d been given as a present for volunteering at youth group camp, so I took Silas procuring final week and let him pick what he wished to spend. He had a whole lot of enjoyable determining the easiest way to spend the cash — and he obtained some nice offers!

(I wished to snap a photograph of Kierstyn sitting on my bump this weekend, however I forgot to test to see if my digicam lens was clear and later found this was the top end result. Sharing it anyway as a result of it feels type of like image of the imperfection and real-ness that’s life at our home proper now.)
