Packed Paddy's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! We have had a good day but have been busier than we have been in a LONG time. I did not sleep at all last night. Let's hope that is not a sign of things to come because I am quite cranky without sleep!

  Evie had MMO and I came home and willed myself to paint the trim in her room while she was not here to get covered in paint or smell the yucky fumes. It was a quick job and I saved us a bunch of money! I treated myself to a pedicure before picking Evie up from school. There's something about pretty feet that just makes me so happy!

 I picked Evie up from school and it's so sweet to see her stop whatever she is doing making a mad dash to get to her Mama! It makes me so happy that she literally jumps over toys and moves people out of her way to get to me because it will not always be like that.  We came home and straightened the house a bit because the Onello's came over for lunch. It was so good to see them and it had been too long since our last visit. Evie and Abby had a blast together although Evie can be a bit bossy. Not sure where she gets it from but I heard her telling Abby - "In tent, NOW!" They put their babies in the hammock, jumped off the recliner, ate cookies and ran around the backyard. Sydney and Victoria were here too but they just blend in and I forget they are even here. After they left, Evie came to me and said, "Nap, next." Sounded like a plan to me so off we went for her nap and I folded a mountain of clothes that I had been ignoring all week.

   I had to wake her up after an hour because it was late and we had a St. Patrick's Day party to go too. Evie does not love being roused from her sleep but the promise of a cupcake at the park perked her right up. She wore her green necklace and was so excited to go see her friends. We had fun but cupcakes, kids and the park created quite the adventure! Evie stays quite close to me but I still struggled with meeting the new people and helping with the cleanup. I am so fortunate that Evie does not run off from me which would make things much more difficult. Evie's little friend Paige who is 5 noticed my growing belly. She asked me if the baby was a boy or a girl. I told her that it was a boy. Paige said, "Well, get ready because two kids is a lot harder than 1 and he is probably going to cry a lot." That made me laugh so hard. Paige has a little brother about Evie's age so she has first hand experience.

    We came home and I headed out for my hair appointment except they had canceled it when I called to change my services. AHHH!!! I almost cried because I was so exhausted and it takes an act of congress to get to a hair appointment these days since they do not open until 11 and they close at 7. Saturday appointments are booked way too far out for my calendar.

   It's been a day but I enjoyed spending the day with my cute little leprechaun.
