this week went much like every other week. since school started we’re falling into a sweet little routine where we all play our parts-mike is in charge of breakfast. i’m in charge of keeping track of time. lex is the opinionated stylist. and k is just plain opinionated.
ok fine. she’s also in charge of the duck face. but really, someone tell her finger mouthing is the new duck face.
moving onto more exciting news. i went to the doctor last week for an allergy test. I’ve been told my entire life I’m allergic to nuts. ALL NUTS. peanuts, deez nuts, walnuts. . . turns out my parents have been lying to me for the past 32 years and the test came back negative! As soon as the blood test comes back and i’m 100% in the clear i’ll be rejoicing by eating a PB&J AND NOT DYING.
now that our remodel is done I’ve decided the not-newly-renovated and professional styled part of the house could use a little refresh. cue furniture rearranging. otherwise known as mikes favorite pastime. I’m also working on a super professional powerpoint presentation to convince him bunk beds should probably happen (and happen soon).
all our entryway is missing is a hipster hat rack.
we had back to school night at lex’s school and her teacher really struck a chord with me (probably every single parent) when she read this article about what your 4yr old should know. I almost openly cried when she got to “Our children need more of us. We have become so good at saying that we need to take care of ourselves that some of us have used it as an excuse to have the rest of the world take care of our kids.”. . . So k and i ditched the gym (something I’m working on doing more often, i promise!) and had a little solo date at the aquarium. She’s so often dragged places- the gym, the grocery store, on ALL OF THE ERRANDS that i never get to let her call the shots, walk at her own pace, choose where we go and when, and get my undivided attention. girlfriend was deliriously happy. and lex? she gets her date on sunday at the happiest place on earth.
so. happy weekending. may the weather grace us all with a hint of fall.
