This morning as we walked to the bus stop my 5 year old said, “My new favorite color is white because white makes everything twinkle like the snow.”
Something about that statement almost choked me up.
Then the three of them started playing limbo while waiting for the bus and it was too much. I got teary eyed!
Oh I don’t know…I’m a little sleep deprived and sick…but I think it’s just sometimes I want to pause these moments…
It’s beautiful and sunny here. Enjoy your day.
Or perhaps I should say tries to shop.
I love these moments.
In my community, kindergarten and 1st grade are spent in one school and there are lots of opportunities for parents to get involved in classroom projects and field trips.
Once they hit second grade, however, it’s big league. Immersed with grades up to fifth it’s hardcore and there are very few chances for parents to be involved with the kids during the school day.
So I thought I was very fortunate to have secured a coveted spot as a parent volunteer on Friday helping to serve on one of a few special pizza Fridays. The twins were happy and immediately grilled me as to which side of the cafeteria I would be serving on, which thrust me into another twin mom dilemma, given that they both were on opposite sides of the cafeteria.
But ultimately, I ended up serving on my son’s side because it was via his class that I signed up to be a volunteer. That didn’t stop me, however, from visiting with my girl twin to get some midday smooches.
She and her pals were more than happy to ham it up for the camera.
Her brother on the other hand got a little cool for his momma when he was around his friends.
It was such a thrill to see them in their element! I was told there are so few 5th grade parent volunteers to serve the students because by 5th grade the kids absolutely do not want their parents coming around
It’s unfathomable that another school year will be soon completed…
Do you grab opportunities to help out at your child/ren’s school?
A few days ago the little one, who is an extreme lover of anything bunnies, excitedly thought about the approach of Easter and made a run around the house to gather all of her bunny ears. We had no idea she owns 57 pairs ( you don’t even want to know how many bunny stuffed animals lurk in her room ).
The kids spent a few cute minutes modeling each one. And I of course had to snap some photos. But this may be one of my all time favs ever because I love how my too cool little man can’t shake his giggles with the ears, little sis is laughing as she looks at him, and my big girl, always the cooperator, is perma smiling for yet another photo!
Whatever you celebrate, whatever you are doing, hope your day is happy and filled with family and love!
I walked in on my little guys in a three way in embrace the other day. It was truly a miraculous sight!
Don’t you just love when they’re all having a love moment?!
Today the kids once again dressed so
peculiarly stylishly that I wanted to snap a photo as a follow-up to yesterday’s post.
However, I could not get them to stand still long enough without fighting about where to stand, to snap a picture. Yes you heard me. The fight was about who stands in the middle.
Have I mentioned that it is just DAY TWO of spring break and they are already driving me to insanity?
Are school break weeks longer weeks for any other moms or is it just me?!
Little man had a St Patrick’s day play on Monday and I was so excited to go watch.
Here’s why…now that he and his twin are in the “big school” there aren’t many opportunities for parents to come to the class. Also, the kid is an introvert like me and was DREADING the whole thing which made me know it was going to be all that much cuter!
He complained that he was playing the role of the knight, but as far as I’m concerned it was the most awesome role in the entire play.
The play was called The Mystery of the Missing Pot of Gold, but other than the title as a clue, I had NO IDEA what was happening.
I do know that the little man was happy as can be when it was all over and he could tear off that itchy costume and dig into the cookies.
I cherished every moment with my shining star.
My older daughter has been begging for months and months to get her ears pierced. I got mine at the age of 12 but remember feeling like that took forever.
She’s really such a great kid who for the most part is so mature and well-behaved. She’s sort of our middle child with her twin brother and the baby sister usually causing the bulk of the friction requiring a lot of the parental attention.
baby sister being unusually supportive!
So because of all that and well just because, today we took her to get her ears pierced.
When she awakened this morning knowing the plans, she kept saying “I have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming that I am really getting my ears pierced today!”
And now she really is gazing at herself continuously to scope out those precious ears!
On Friday my son was home sick with the flu. Though he had been up all night he was persistent in his desire to walk his baby sister to the bus stop with me. Although it was against my better judgement I relented and allowed him. As we walked outside they immediately started walking like this, arm in arm…amazing!
Of course as I write this now with us being holed up coughing on each other for the past 4 days straight, the story is a little different! Nonetheless I’m so glad I was able to capture this special moment. I think I need to remind them of it right now .
The whole fam was in my bed with my iPad this morning. (Bejeweled Blitz is a family wide addiction over here.)
I love it
Are you enjoying a lazy Sunday too?
