Life Lately.

My life has become a series of car rides and doctors appointments and playdates and school drop offs it seems like a never ending list of things that need to be done. And with all that comes the lack of time necessary to process things like how I feel about everything and how I'm processing what God's telling me. So my blog stays blank. Which is kind of sad, but I've gotten over kicking myself for it because it's just life and I can't do much about this phase right now than to trudge through it. So that's what I'm doing.

In the meantime, this is what we're up to.

I have playdates on my calendar literally every open day for us for the next 3 weeks. This is a good thing, and my boys obviously get excited about it.
Fun at CFA with sweet friends (and Tyler is obviously exuberant of the fact that he was included in the playground fun).
I got kind of sad after our playdate the other with my friend Jenna, when I realized that next year these things won't include Brayden. As hard as this phase with littles is, it does have it's advantages. Also, please note Tyler's amazing grin. He was completely head over heels of the fact that he could play with the big boys.

Right before we left CFA, my boys were standing around while I got all of my stuff together. Someone in the play area by the door mentioned the numbers 1 & 2, and completely unrelated, Brayden chimed in loud enough for all to hear: "#3 is the number diarrhea." I was both humored and mortified at the same time.


For those of you who are like me and might live under a rock every now and again, Frozen is coming out on DVD March 18th. We're having first world problems about this, like trying to figure out of we want to purchase a big boy watch or the Frozen movie. Life is filled with tough choices. 


I register Brayden for Kindergarten next week. I can hardly believe it. I have a lot of thoughts on this subject, but am still hashing everything out in draft. It'll get posted... before he starts in the fall ;) As for Brayden, he is SUPER excited, and thinks that he will get to go to Kindergarten the minute he turns five. 


This weekend is the big consignment sale that I work at/purchase my boys clothes. They didn't place a limit on the number of items allowed into the sale this year, and I am already hyperventilating thinking about having to sift through even more racks of clothes for the boys than normal. This year I need very specific things, so I'm having to gear up.


We are in the phase of not liking that little brother can get into all the things, and little brother loving that he can get in and destroy all the things. Many a tear have been shed over the fact that Tyler has come in and destroyed masterful lego/puzzle/animal figurine creations.
Oh the plight of little brothers. Always messing up the symmetry of animals.


Drew and I went to the eye doctor together today. I feel like this makes us a legit old couple. Like, going to the doctor together is what old couples do. And in unfortunate news, my far sight is now waning too, so I'll need to wear glasses at night. Fantastic. Growing old and loving every second of it (smell the sarcasm.)


We have another winter weather storm headed our way. This time ice is involved, which means that I cried when I saw the weather forecast. Praying it doesn't affect our power. And also praying for spring. Little boys and winter just don't mix all that well, as we've come to find out this year with all the snow. Babies gotta run and be free outside :) To help with my defiance of the weather, I stocked up on sunblock today. It may be snowing, but we will not get sunburnt. Here's to spring coming soon!

Hope yall have a great weekend!
