It's just been one of those weeks.
You know the kind of week I'm talking about.
But the nitty-gritty of it is that I am extremely blessed and ridiculously happy. So instead of ranting, I'd like to show you some pictures from my phone that hopefully will bring you laughter like they do for me.
Mae is quite the fashion diva. I feel that parents and kids could fight about things often--holding hands when you cross the road, not playing with the stove, etc. Since Mae is pretty strong willed, I feel that I'd rather pick my battles. So why fight about what she wears all the time?
She changes at least six times a day and comes up with the silliest outfits.
Special attention is often paid to footwear.
She did this to her shoes on the way to the aquarium.
Speaking of fashion...I see it on other babies and I think I should do it on my baby too. But really, when I try I just think it looks ridiculous. Really really ridiculous.
Jayson was in charge of baths one night. I guess he wanted to give Penny a spa experience. Mae and Jayson got out straws and gave her bubbles too. (umbrella in the bottle?!)
I ordered a few things from diapers.com, and it all game in a ginormous box. Mae slept in it for a week.
I was in the bathroom doing my business and she came in...
You've seen cattle trucks on the highways. But have you ever seen what is spilling out the back? Poop, all over the road.
I was trying to take a nap...and I was so rudely disturbed.
Sometimes we deface government property (j dawgs sticker on a firetruck).
Once a family member said they wanted to live on an island with a mote.......uh...don't all islands kind of have a mote? So we made this individual an island with "a mote" out of playdough.
We also made people in snuggies, because everyone in this world should have a snuggie.
I saw truck's bed piled high with twinkies and ho-ho's and covered with a chain-link fence. I was utterly befuddled. What in the world would you do with millions of twinkies?
Turns out they feed them to pigs. They come from the hostess outlets' outlet (can you believe there's such a thing?). Makes you want some pork. Oink, oink!
We need to keep an eye on Mae whenever she plays with stamps. At least she found the M.
She rules the roost!
Hungry and tired. Guess which one won?
Remember how Jayson rented an Easter Bunny suit?
Mae has always had a tendency to run around. She was trying to get out the door at church, and her dress got stuck in it. We still had a few things to take care of, so we left her there for a few minutes. We were just happy she was contained.
Will it blend? Have you seen those video's on youtube? Hilarious. We bought a blendtec and got to see the set.
Time to swim!
Lastly at Powells Books in Portland.
My girls don't lack personality...that's for sure!
I feel better already.
