Today we went swimming at my friends house all day. It was heaven! I love that I have friends and during the summer we're able to get together and let the kids play while we sit and chat! After our swim, we came home and had baths. I must have looked especially big today in my swimsuit cause after baths and putting jammies on the kids, I found my little Brookie walking around the house like this...
My Mondays and Wednesdays have been quite busy with Track and T-ball. Today was Sky's first track meet and unfortunately Jett's t-ball game started soon after. So I left Dad in charge of Sky while I ran off with Jett to get him to his game.
I captured a few that are significant today...
First the protective dad, shading his daughter until it was time for her to run. He's always been this way, making sure his kids are always the most comfortable they can be. He's one heck of a dad!
Then of course, the events Sky chose for her first meet...
And then I had to leave and this is my boy at his t-ball game. Getting ready, he sits intently watching from the dugout. This year he has been on top of his game. I was happy with his focus and how well he's done. Most of the kids were found kicking the dirt, playing with their hat, or just off in la-la land of some sort. Not Jett, and I wonder where that comes from. He was seen slightly bent forward watching the kid at bat, ready to pounce on the ball the second it was hit. He was ready at all times.
Not my favorite appointment, but happy to have passed the test! Today, I found out good and bad... good in that I passed my iron test, and my glucose test. Tests that apparently most of the ladies have had trouble passing lately. But the bad, I gained 8lbs this month. That is the most I have ever gained in a month of pregnancy and lucky for me, my doctor was out delivering. I would have gotten the third degree had she been there. Last trimester, here we go!
Ice cream for dinner! Why not... after an extra hot Track practice and tball game, it's the only thing that sounded good. Kinda nice that mom is prego and doesn't really care, it's the only thing I wanted to eat myself!
Today, we went to lunch and then came home gathered up the new bikes and helmets and headed over to the park. As overprotective parents, we hadn't gotten bikes or taught our kids how to ride them. They've been completely okay riding Big Wheels in the backyard and around the block. That hasn't bothered me one bit. But at the same time, what kid can grow up without riding a bike, right? So we decided it was time. Dad has spent the last couple of weeks shopping for the perfect bikes and helmets. He did great and was so excited to go out and finally teach them.
This is just one of my favorites... on my family blog I'll post more of the event!
The first few days of summer, I thought I was going to end up killing one of my children. It seemed to have all three together all day was not going well. Threes a crowd they say and in this case it was a constant crowd! There was lots of arguing and battles for who was in charge and what game was being played. Then today... it was a miracle. I woke up to the kids giggling... ALL THREE OF THEM! I grabbed my camera and from just outside the girls room I found them here... on the top bunk saying silly words and playing with their favorite stuffed animals.
It's like a diet for me... I start out strong, doing perfectly everyday and then things get in the way and slowly I loose my momentum and before I know it, I've given up. But I am getting back on the horse and hopefully riding this challenge out the rest of the year.
At least someone looks out for me! I heard a scream and it was Sky screaming at Jett saying, "NO, it's not yours!" I ran down and the argument was that Jett was taking the LAST croissant. How dare he! I jumped in asking him to choose something else to eat cause these were Sky's favorite and I was afraid he was only doing it to make her scream (cause that happens a lot around here). He agreed after being presented other choices, but Sky was not convinced he was really going to leave it alone. Later I found it with this little note attached! I think she's way too smart, knowing I wouldn't really eat it, I'd let her have it. This way though, she didn't come off selfish!
S-ure she has the cutest kids on the planet!
T-ells stories like her dad (long and detailed)
E-njoys keeping up with old and new friends.
P-olka dots and PHOTOGRAPHY!
H-as to-do lists
A-lways asks for extra tomatoes on EVERYTHING!
N-ot a morning person

E-very day I smile because I have such a great life!
