I sure hope I got the spelling of “derrières” right. There’s a good possibility I’m swearing at you all in French (is that French?)! But probably not because autocorrect sure as hell doesn’t even let me swear in English.
Oh weekending. Is there anything better than a strong weekend filled with lazy beach days, walktails, and your four year old parading around in makeup?
Nope. Not a thing.
I’m currently penning a letter to the president to see if he’ll make “national donut day” a celebration that includes donuts AND a 3-day weekend. Because that’s the only way to make the holiday better than Halloween. The past few years I’ve made donuts because I was too lazy to hit the donut store. But this year we hit the donut store because I was too lazy to make donuts. The ladies ate the chocolate tops and left the bottoms to be smushed beyond recognition in my diaper bag.
the girls twinning game has been strong to very strong lately. I’m not the hugest fan of head to toe twins… But lex is. And I’d be a cold hearted snake to deny her goodness that results in things like this:
Lex hit the beach in her suit- meanwhile k hit nap time. that girl has been giving me TROUBLE with a capital T R O U B L E lately and I jumped at the chance to have big kid time. Plus k’s not tall enough to have made these pictures nearly as cute.
the best part of the weekend was dance recital dress rehearsal. It’s where I learned that I’m going to need way trashier colored makeup in order to be a dance mom. Neutral blush tones just don’t cut it in the dance world. And don’t even get me started on the lips. I have the best memories growing up in costumes, ballet shoes, and sponge rollers. And I can’t believe it’s lex’s turn to enter that world. I’m also incredibly excited for next weekends recital! If they remember their dance it’ll be adorable, if they forget and stand on stage and shake their butts it’ll be adorable! It’s a win-win! I learned so much at the rehearsal- mostly that lipstick and ballet tights don’t mix- and chances are your child won’t listen when you tell them that if they cry their entire face will be black due to mascara.
And with that. I say bring it on Monday (through Friday). I shall survive you with a hearty dose of a caffeine and maybe I can change that letter to the president to beg him to make every day national donut day.
