If you’re new here, read my first What’s for Dinner post to get filled in on what’s going on. If you’ve been to this rodeo before, let’s get to business.
Life doesn’t slow down, even if you have a stupid gallbladder attack and just want to lay in bed for a few days….
I had one yesterday and I was pretty sure I was going to die. Out of the three I’ve had in my life this one was 100x worse then the other two. Turns out I survived and life didn’t stop for me so I guess I’ll move along with it….but I will drag my feet a little bit.
Despite the fact that I’m still somewhat weak from the gallbladder episode, I still had to put on my big girl pants and be the mom around here today.
So, dinner was still made (one pot beef stroganoff,) Easter Shopping was still done (I really shouldn’t have procrastinated that this year,) Conner’s play was still attended, and even a little laundry was done.
The play was really cute. Dad and Charlotte went last night and I took Thatcher tonight. At the end they asked everyone to fold up one chair and stack them in the back.
Thatcher was all over that and I think he single-handedly put away 1/2 the chairs himself while we waited for Conner.
We celebrated Conner’s great performance by going to get ice cream and french fries. Conner wanted to take some home to dad, so he dumped out his water cup and filled it with ice to make an insulator….he’s kind of a genius sometimes.
In other news: I’m happy to report that I’ve figured out how to get babies to quit pulling books off of the bookcase over and over…..
…you just get to the point where you are so exhausted that you don’t pick them up for a few days and they start to leave them alone….I’m so smart.
It dawned on me today, that once the warmer weather is here for good, I won’t be able to get away with keeping Trever in his cozy footie jammies all day…bummer, that is really going to put a cramp in my style!
BTW: The gallbladder attack was totally my fault. I ate SOOOO much junk the day before….by so much I mean 3/4 of a 9×13 pan of golden graham smores treats, a HUGE nacho’s with queso and a pint of Ben and Jerry’s…..I know, I know, WHAT WAS I THINKING?????
Anyway, I tell you that so you will understand why what Conner said to me last night was so funny.
“Mom, I wish I could feel sorry for you, but you really did this to yourself.”
Dang, I guess this Love and Logic parenting thing I try to do is rubbing off on my kids……not sure if I like it coming back at me…….
Keep it Real!!!
