I'm off to spend the day shopping with my girls. We need groceries, birthday gifts, and the perfect outfit for Mommy to wear tomorrow night.
I'm off to a Country Music Concert (3 amazing performers) about 3 hours from home. Just my sister and I are going. We're packing up some Margaritas (okay, and some vodka), some clothes for Sunday, our tickets, and we're hitting the road. My hubby actually suggested we get a hotel room for the night. So... of course we did!
I will be posting about our road trip adventure one day next week, for sure!!
So, what did I learn this week? Quite a bit actually!!!
1. THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN WATCHING YOUR "BABY" GROW INTO HER OWN PERSON~ For months, everything that Lylah does, is just mimicking her older sister. If Gracie dances, Lylah dances. If Gracie screams, Lylah screams. Finally this week, Lylah has started to become her own person. She dances when no one is watching. She sings in the middle of dinner. She splashes Gracie in the tub before Gracie gets a chance to splash her, and I LOVE it!! She is turning into my little mischievous child, but that's okay!
3. PEDIATRIC STROKE~ I feel bad even admitting to this, but I seriously had no clue. Well, maybe I had a clue about pediatric stroke, but I had no clue that stroke can happen in Utero. So sad. I have come across an amazing mother and blog, and I encourage you to check it out for more information. The site is amazing, and also a real eye opener.I think this is a subject that we should all be educated on. You can find the site HERE.
4. IF YOU STARVE THEM THEY *WILL* EAT! ~ After months of frustration over Gracie not eating anything but Hotdogs and Macaroni, I finally got
So.. no more giving in to peanut butter sandwiches after an uneaten dinner..
Life is good, sometimes we need a reminder! I thank Jaycee Dugard for my reminder..
I'm kinda ticked with her though. Her book is sold out everywhere, and I'd REALLY like to read it!!
Oh well, I guess waiting 6-8 weeks for a book is still nothing compared to her 18 years of hell!!
Have an amazing weekend ladies! I know that I will!!!!
