Week in Review!

It's been a LONG week but a good week.

Monday: We stayed home and did some things around the house. Harris Teeter was calling our name for Super Double Coupons. I barely had any room for my groceries since both kids were with me. We had Baked Ziti for dinner and watched The Bachelor. It's such a crazy show but so fun to watch together.

Tuesday: Carl left to go to Tampa at 5:00 AM. I did not even hear him leave because Henry had been up so much the night before. Evie had school and Henry hung out at home with me. We took dinner to a friend that just had a new baby. Then, made a quick trip to the library before picking up Evie. We waited all afternoon for our new oven to arrive. It finally arrived at 6:00 right in the middle of dinner.

Wednesday: Scott came to install our oven. I took the kids with me to a meeting for the MOMS Club. It was good to get out for a bit since it's hard to be home with kids while someone is trying to work in the kitchen. Evie had a ball at Stacey's house and told me that she "liked playing in that castle." I enjoyed seeing Stacey's new house too and it's always fun to chat with other moms. We ran through McDonald's quickly although Evie was upset because she wanted " Chikit fil A". She decided that McDonald's was fine when we had a picnic in her pink bedroom. Henry had his first nugget and loved it! He really eats anything and everything that we give him. Not sure, if baby food is going to cut it with him for too much longer. Both kids napped even though our house sounded like a construction zone. Our cabinets had to be modified so the oven could fit which involved lots of loud noise. Evie woke up and decided to write about a hundred checks to Scott on her pink Post-it Notes. That was a mess but it kept her busy. I had to call our neighbor to come help get the oven in the wall but finally after an entire day of work we had a working oven.

Thursday: Evie and Henry both had hard nights. Henry was up from 2:30- 3:30 and then Evie piped in with a bad dream about 3:45. Apparently, a dinosaur came in to say hello to her and then the dinosaur roared at her so she needed to tell me all about it! Henry then woke up again so I missed three hours of sleep. They still woke up early even after being up so much in the night. Evie went to school and Henry had his sitter. I met Courtney for coffee which was the highlight of my week and then went to have my hair done. Evie was a hot mess after school because she does not nap there anymore. Henry was asleep when we got home. We played outside for a bit because it was just gorgeous especially for February. Carl got home in time for a run/walk with the entire family. Let me assure you that there was a lot more walking than running! We put the kids to bed and had a late dinner of leftovers. Nothing quite says, "Welcome Home, Honey" like leftovers from earlier in the week. Henry slept better only waking twice. That felt like a picnic compared to our usual three to five times per night. Henry and I are getting to know each other real well in the middle of the night. I am hoping he is beginning to notice that Mommy needs her sleep and is not so welcoming between the hours of 7 and 7.

Friday: We hung out at home all morning before heading out to Molly's birthday party. Evie was so excited and could barely contain herself. She was all dressed up in her pink princess dress and had a ball with the other girls. It was a princess party complete with manicures, make-up, miniature sandwiches and tea in teacups. Evie loved all the goodies including her own lip gloss, nail polish, crown and pink princess balloon. It was her first time getting the royal treatment since I barely paint my own nails much less my three year olds fingernails. The cake was delicious! Nap time commenced immediately after we walked in the door. Everyone was exhausted. We have no plans on the agenda for the weekend and are hoping for a nice quiet relaxing weekend.


  1. I love Henry's pj's!!! Are they from the Children's place?! I hope he starts sleeping better, I know that is ROUGH!

  2. I am so sorry you aren't getting good sleep. I read lots of sleep books to help with Avery's naps, but for Sam I've done the Moms on Call and am thinking we're going to try that. That does not guarantee sleep, though. Usually all these aides do not say what to do when the baby is still up all night or only takes a 15 minute nap. Henry still looks as happy as ever. So glad to know I'm not the only mom not painting my nails or my toddler's.
