First off, thank you all so much for your great comments on my last post. I feel better knowing some of you have gone through the same things with your kids. All I know is the scissors are all hidden and up higher than any step stool + child can reach!
Riley was supposed to get her hair cut on Friday but we had to reschedule, so hopefully this week I can post pictures of her new do! At least she still has that cute little face going for her right?!?
Well, this weekend went by way to fast, as they usually do! And this post is really all over the place.
Madi has not been feeling good for about a month now. Every time she's about to get over a cold, another one hits. On Saturday, once again she woke up with a runny nose. She has not been sleeping either which is really starting to wear on Mommy and Daddy.
She's heading to the doctor tomorrow or Tuesday.
In the meantime, she thinks she old. And can take showers like a big kid.
The other day she was upstairs saying over and over, "I'm Riley Rush! I'm Riley Rush!" Either she's confused or just trying to push someone's buttons...
Honestly, I think she's pushing someone's buttons. Riley is Riley Rush, not Riley Rose, not girly, not hunny, not baby. But Riley Rush. She gets upset when we call her anything other than that.
I think someone knows Riley better than I think.
Don't let the cute face fool you, she's naughty. Very naughty. But likes to make me laugh.
What did you do this weekend?
We didn't do much. Tim worked until 6:00 on Saturday and I pretended to go to Costco with my Mom and Home Depot.
I got a few things at Home Depot but my children were awful at Costco.
You know the awful that I'm talking about...the screaming...the running away from me...the flailing of the arms and legs. Complete with the gasps and gawks from other people that think I'm beating my children. Seriously, those people need to go home. Have they never seen crying children before? I think I might take a picture the next time my kids are throwing a fit, make a hundred copies of it and keep them in my purse. That way, the next time someone is staring at me, and judging my parenting skills, I can hand them a picture...and tell them that it lasts longer.
Do you think that would shut them up?
Yeah, I don't either. Anyone that judges a parent for actually parenting has issues.
At Home Depot I got a few things for the front of our house. It's not much but a huge difference from what it was when we moved in. It's looking so pretty! I'll post pictures soon, after I paint my little bistro that is on my front porch.
Today we didn't do anything. Like at all. Don't believe me?
Yeah, I tell the truth! Poor Tim, the no sleep for a month is really starting to get to him. This afternoon I took the girls upstairs to "help" me straighten and let Tim have a little snooze. He deserves it!
He's out right now getting us dinner from BJ's. I'm getting a salad even though I wanted a deep dish pizza, or a big, fat juicy burger. I ran this evening so I don't want to ruin it with all that delicious fat and grease.
I'll leave you with a little incident that happened just recently. It involves this purse...
It's been everywhere with us. Since Wednesday. The day that George came to clean my house.
See, I trust George but I don't like to leave cash hanging around the house. When I'm saving up for something I like to save it in cash and I keep it in the house. Okay, now that I said that, you are not going to try to break in and steal it are you? Well, don't. It's not that much and it's not worth it.
Anyway, I had over four hundred bucks, I think, that I stuck in my pocket before I left the house to let George do his thing. When Madi and I got back from running errands, I took the money out of my pocket and threw it on my desk upstairs.
Since then, I couldn't find it. I thought maybe I put it somewhere else, like in a drawer or something.
When I was straightening tonight, I couldn't find it anywhere. So I asked Riley if she had seen any money laying around.
She told me no.
I showed her what money looked like. She said, "Oh yeah, I saw some cash." Really, she said cash. I asked her where it was, she replied with, "It was on your desk, and I took it." "Did you? I'm not mad, but can you tell Mommy where you put it?"
R: "Sure, I took it off your desk and into my room and sat at my table. Then I put it all in my purse."
M: "Oh, okay, what purse?"
R: "The princess and the frog one."
I quickly ran downstairs to the car to see if it was still in there. Madi had this purse, Riley had this purse. This purse went into the stores with us.
And, I found my money.
I think it's all there.
I'll see you all later, Tim is back with my yummy salad!
