Fire Fighters, Zombies, Sunglasses & other Saturday Laughs

5.  Cupcakes put her [anti-thumb-sucking] glove on her one hand (we lost the other glove in the move), and held it up to daddy, and said: "I'm a fire fighter." Dramatic Pause "A fire fighter that kills." on kills, she extended her arm even further.  No idea where she got any of that, haha. 4. I send this picture to my sister.  She hates winter even more than I do, and she does NOT appreciate Christmas stuff at Target a month before Halloween.  Hahaha.  I'm … [Read more...]

My Big Come Back {From Maternity Leave}

I've had such an incredible, wonderful, amazing summer  / Maternity Leave with my precious babies.  But now it's time to get back to reality and return to work.  This past Monday was my first day.  The days have been going by fairly quickly which is awesome, but somehow, the days are still very long.  I guess that's because my evenings with my hubby / kids are so short.  I love the night time feedings with Tootsie Roll because even though they make me more tired, it's GREAT cuddle time.  <3 … [Read more...]

- 1 - Happy Friday! We have a really fun evening planned!  Hobbs won an award at work so they gave him a free dinner at the buffet where he works.  So we're packing up the kids and going to that.  Then, his security department is having some kind of thing at the local baseball game so we're bringing the kids to that.  It should be a great time.  The only thing I'm worried about is a late bed time.  Eeep. - 2 - Dessert of the Week Ice Cream.  We tried a new kind (we always get cookies n … [Read more...]

We Had Such a Fun St Patrick’s Day!

I LOVE this picture of us!! I like how my shirt turned out; wearing it was a lot of fun.  :) A Leprechaun came to my classroom and messed it all up, but to make up for it, he left a gold coin in each of my kids' crayon bins. Almost all of my kids put their magnets on Green.  :)  They get to choose one of the colors their wearing for The Color Song [for example:] Cupcakes is wearing Green today Green today, Green today! Cupcakes is wearing Green today YAY YAY YAY! … [Read more...]

- 1 - Happy Friday! It's been kind of a long week, but I've been getting some overtime, which is pretty great. There was an incident at daycare this week that made me feel so bad.  I was taking my morning break on the blue couch out by the front desk and Cupcakes came skipping into my classroom to go to the bathroom.  She was expecting me to be in there as I always am, but I wasn't, as I was on break.  She started crying and even after I consoled her & she seemed better, she burst into … [Read more...]
