Tuesday - it's the new Wednesday. I think I've used this line before...
*I know, I KNOW! Where the hecks have I been this past week? Well, DC has been experiencing a little bit of summer in the springtime so we've been enjoying all the glorious weather. It's been in the upper 70s and into the 80s all week. We have been spending every waking minute outside racing dump trucks; blowing bubbles; playing in the sandbox and sand and water table; snapping all the heads off my daffodils and hyacinths; spending long hours at the playground; and getting super sweaty and dirty. I has been mostly amazing, but we live in an older home without central AC and we don't have our window units in yet (because it's effing April, right?) so the house has been a little, um, steamy. You might think we could just open the windows, but we still have the storm windows in up stairs (APRIL!) and we don't have screens for the downstairs (old house, story for another time) so it has been getting a little hot up in here. The only other problem was my kids lack of summer attire, but I finally got off my duff and bought them some shorts so they won't be sweating it out in jeans or sweats today.
*Speaking of summer attire, my ass is carrying around an extra 8-10 lbs from this winter. It's not quite the look I'm going for, so I need to work on that. HASAY is no more, so I'm thinking of hooking up with the Loser Moms if they'll have me.
*Oscar is pooping again. Yeah! Like, he just sits down on the toilet an poops with little to no coaxing. Sometime, he goes potty ALL BY HIMSELF. Like, I'll just look over and he's dropped trow and is sitting on the potty. And, we were at the vet's this past weekend w/Valentine and he was like, "I need to go potty or I'm going to pee-pee in my pants." The timing was awful because we were at the vet and I had to cram him and 75lb Valentine into a tiny bathroom, but he did not pee his pants. Win!
*Both boys are sleeping in their own bedroom together. They both wake up maybe twice a week, but they don't wake each other. Win!
*We went to the National Zoo on Friday. I was thinking it was a nice day, and my mom was in town, so the zoo would be a great place to spend the day. Unfortunately, everyone else in the DC metro area had the same idea. The zoo was a zoo. But, the weather was gorgeous and the big cats were loving it, even though the Asia Trail disappointed (it always does.)
*My birthday, AWESOME. Total win.
Go outside, enjoy the spring. But check out Keely for some more Random before you do.
