Winter weather is tapering off and the sun is slowly giving us some shine. Winter activities have moved from inside the home unto the outside. The thick jackets have gone back in the closet and out comes the long tees and thin jackets. It's a beautiful day out with a little bit of chill breeze and we are enjoying what God has created with our little pony friends!
A couple months after the start of the school year, we had our fall parent teacher conferences. It's so great to be able to meet with your children's teacher just to see how our kids are doing. My son started his full days of school, which I think are a bit tiring for their age but honestly, I have seen GREAT progress in just a few months compared to my oldest when she was in half day kindergarten. While having a full time kindergartener is amazing on its own, let me tell you about number 12! His teacher mentioned that the number twelve is the most troublesome number for kindergarteners. No one knows why, but she said most of the students in the class at the start of the school didn't know the number when being looked upon. Too funny!
The snow and freezing temperature has disappeared from the Washington state, and that can only mean one thing - lots of rain. It has been raining for days on end, but today was sunny. Okay well not that sunny, but the sun shined through and it wasn't raining. Mimi peeked through the back sliding door and saw the beautiful flowers giving our otherwise simple backyard some color and life.
Don't you just love sisters? Whenever I see my daughters together playing or bonding, I always think of what it would be like to have my own sister! I bet it would have been so fun. I'm so happy to witness that my girls get along so well together. I see so much potential to these little ladies of mine, and it would be no surprise to me if they turn to be such wonder women of the future!
My son loves his spiky hair, it doesn't even matter what kind of spiky hair... it just needs to be long and sharp! Sometimes I've got to go on a hunt for great products that doesn't cause flakiness throughout the day. Previously, we were using other products to create his preferred Mohawk style but when I pick him up from the school bus stop after school, he always ends up with dried white flakes on his hair, forehead, and I'm pretty sure it's on his ears, too! My kids skin are on the sensitive side so these things can't happen to prevent itching. He was on a spiky hiatus for a little bit before we were introduced to SoCozy!
Being a stay at home mom means you're busy, on the go, always something on your mind on what to do next. Those are all true, but let's admit it... we find those small moments where you just one hundred percent stop at where you are and just realize that our life is perfect beyond words. We glance over at our children and fall in love with them over and over. Moments like these especially when they're in their little world reading a book and snuggling against a stuffed animal is so priceless. It makes you just want to take a break and snuggle with your little one!
LET'S BE FRIENDS!
