Life Lately

     It’s February.  I don’t know what it is, but the first few months of the year always fly!  We’ve been busy living life over here. Nothing too glamorous. Nothing too exciting. Just normal life.


     It’s been such a mild winter, and Davis has had so much fun playing outside! He has plearned how to ride a motorcycle, jump in puddles, and run from me on the way to the car each morning. He has such a big personality…I can’t imagine where he gets it from…


     He also got himself a really handsome, big boy haircut…he looks like a little man. I can’t. He is inching closer to two, and I’m not ready.  We’re making the move to a big boy bed over spring break, and once school is out I’m putting his hiney in underwear. Where is my baby?!


     In news unrelated to my teenager, Keith installed new floors in the living room, dining room, and hallway, and I am in loooooove. It has changed my opinion of our paint colors, pushed up our new couch timeline, and brought me to our gorgeous new rug. It is so cushy and cozy and I can’t keep my eyes and toes off of it.


     I’m including this as a reminder to myself of how nice the classroom (…I just typed “house” instead of classroom…life) looks when it’s clean. Also, it took me three and a half years, but I finally have matching desks and have found organizational systems that work and keep me sane. Praise. Hands.

     I was talking to my kids the other day about responsibility, and said, “Y’all it’s almost March!”  …and then I realized that it’s almost March! What in the world?!  In the day to day, I sometimes feel things draaaaaaaging on, and then I turn around one time, and we’ve got two weeks until spring break and the last quarter of the year!

     I have about 1.2 billion things left to do this year and then summer and a birthday for my boy and all of these things, and I’m exhausted just thinking about it.  Is this what being a grown up is?

     As per usual, I have about a million post ideas rolling aorund the old think tank, and if I ever figure out a way to keep my eyes open past 9 p.m. then I’ll have a lot to say! In the meantime, I’ve got about an hour of naptime left and lots of fun grown up things to do like pay bills and dust mop the floors. #glamour
