This week totally and completely flee by. But not without some good old fashioned F U N.
kenz is definitely the second child. And gets woken from her peaceful slumber at least 2-3x a day getting into a car seat or getting food shoved in her face to prepare for big sisters activities. this same second child has forced me into giving up dairy. . . the doctor suggested it a few times to help with her dry crackled skin but being the good parent i am i ignored her. until it hit an all-time dry. its been almost a week and it’s helped tremendously. and i’m pining and pining hard for ice-cream and pizza.
my mom came out on a “school day” for lex. So I left the little one at home for school pick up. It may have taken lex a few minutes to realize her sister was missing but once she did it was tears and drama because she was convinced I left the babe at school. “MOMMY! GO BACK FOR KENZIE RIGHT NOW!”. I secretly felt good because look! Lex loves her sister! … Even if lex looks at kenz, looks at me and says things like “mommy. Please tell Kenzie that I’m brushing my teeth with an Ariel toothbrush”. Obviously we’re still working on sisterly communication.
bed time has been a crap shoot lately for lex. Sometimes she goes down without a peep other times it’s drama and prolonging. I hope to never forget the night she was standing at the top of the stairs crying because “daddy left his beer in my room!” If she’s crying over someone leaving beer around she’s clearly not ready for high school.
our Thursday. Where kenz had a blowout at ballet. And I decided to wear her at the doctor when she decided to test the limits of her diaper yet again. Once wrapped back up again she proceeded to spit up allllllll over me. Thus ending my love affair with baby wearing (for now). turns out lex’s toe got a good old fashioned infection. so antibiotics, toe soaks, and more doctors visits are in our very near future.
and kitties. nuf said.
