- We had a crazy, fun weekend in KC celebrating my toothless goddaughter turning SEVEN! Where does the time go?! In addition to the pony, there was a unicorn… a real, live unicorn! Finny even rode the unicorn (lovingly named Kate). Talk about all your wildest little kid dreams coming true! Both kids crashed for a bit on the drive home… win for me!
- The car ride home went much smoother than the ride to KC. Evie… who was suppose to be napping… decided instead to put on a chorus line show, complete with made-up songs like “I’m Spaghetti” and “I’m Super Girl.” She also started hollering “Merry Christmas” at the top of her lungs. My threats to not attend the birthday party and “turn this car around” shockingly fell on deaf ears.
- The kids had dentist appointments last week. We made it without tears or whines or sadness. In fact, they asked to go back the next day. We’ve come a looooong way since Finn’s first 2 appointments! Apparently Evie still does not have her 2 year molars, which are coming in now. I’ll chalk her recent sassiness up to “teething”
- I can’t believe kids are heading back to school this week. Didn’t summer just begin? I thankfully have another few weeks with the Finnster before he begins. We’re going to enjoy the quiet parks and kids spots for the rest of the month.
What has been the highlight of your summer? For me, I’ve loved having the freedom to do so many things this summer. Last summer Evie was still napping in the morning, so we were hostage until she woke. This summer we were free to roam and tried to each morning!
