SO. FREAKING. BUSY!
It’s funny how everyone waits for summer to get here so that they can kick back and relax, but then the minute it gets here we all take off running and throw relaxation to the side!
Here’s just a snapshot of what the Strong family has been up to:
As I said before, someone graduated 1st grade.
Funny story, Mr. Attorney Man texted me as I was walking to the school to pick her up, and I replied back telling him not to text me again until I gave him the all clear. I wanted to take a video and incoming texts stop the recording!
And a big announcement over here, someone turned FOUR!!
He has already decided that he is going to marry my friend’s little girl.
But he tells me he will only kiss her on the cheek where there are no germs.
That same friend and I have linked up to wear our kids out as much as possible this summer and we have found the perfect way to do that at the Splash Park.
When we aren’t in the pool, we’ve been playing with the water table in our front yard.
It hasn’t been all water play, my Ballerina friend and I spent the day with our kids at this snazzy place:
I can’t forget to give you a Platonic Husband update, I know you guys have come to love her too! She ran the most awesome race ever with the Girl Child and I. Seriously, tell me this doesn’t look fun:
Like I said, tell me that didn’t look fun. That was AWESOME! Four miles of foam and bubbles? YES PLEASE.
Nothing else too exciting to report. I went to a party but forgot to take pictures (probably because I was too busy stuffing my face with taco dip), and we have spent a little time just chilling at home.
The Boy Child figured out how to turn the lights on and off. I swear I can see a gleam in his eyes that says “I HAVE ALL THE POWER” as he has turned our house into a disco hall complete with strobe lights.
Funny though, he was smart enough to figure that out and yet when I asked him to go upstairs and put some clothes on, it never occurred to him to take his pajama’s off first.
But at least then I’ll be able to get him to go to sleep.
It did however finally spur him to earn the last few stickers on his behavior chart so that he could earn the tractor he has been yearning for.
Meanwhile, the Girl Child has been busy preparing for her ballet and hip hop recitals.
And The Boy Child has enjoyed watching her practice.
You guys, this stuff has ALL been in the last month, and that doesn’t include working, my dance, The Boy Child’s doctor appointments, dating, and the million other things/meals/laundry/shopping/cleaning/errands that are involved in running a household and a life.
Oh yea … and we can’t forget the night I spent at the club.
The kids sum it up best in exactly how I feel about this:
So if you don’t mind, I’m going to get out of here now and do this in my bed:
See you all on Tuesday!
