It is Thursday. That means it is time for some awkward and awesome moments. We are still trying to recover and get back into the grove of things after taking a mini-vacation and having family in town. Why does vacation always need a vacation after it is over?
~Finding random items that Colin placed in the drawers. One shoe, cups, empty dt.coke cans that he stole from the recycling container, my pepper mill...
~ Wearing a light silk skirt on a windy day.
~ Watching 6 adults jam themselves onto my couch and love seat to watch the world series.
~ Jack's bedtime routine. It last FOREVER. He thinks up a million excuses. Drives me nuts.
~ Giant golden crowned flying fox bats. Google it.
~ Getting asked multiple times if I was a student for the student discount at multiple stores. Nope, I have been out of college for 6 years. Yes, I still look like an undergrad. Yes, I am 30 now. No, I am not kidding. Who would lie about turning 30?! ( fyi: Madewell and J.Crew give nice student discounts, if you are an actual student!)
~ Having Jack's closet door ripped down during Life Groups. 3 weeks into hosting and we already have some damage...
~ Colin busting it out to kid's praise gospel. That boy has some serious rhythm.
~ Having a Georgetown Cupcake. I didn't know that frosting could melt in your mouth like that till I had one of theirs.
~"Mom, can we talk about crocodiles?" Or giraffes, or elephants, or trucks or dolphins or crickets. Jack always wants to talk about things, mostly animals and engines. I am better at the animals than the engines...
~ KitchenAid stand mixer.
~ Being able to have my mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, brother and sister all in town for a week. We were able to house them all, and it was full and fun!
~ Going the entire week of vacation and not counting a single Weight Watcher point. (However, it is not so awesome the next week to step on the scale.)
~ Most Awful, Scary Moment
~ Ryan having to do the heimlich on Colin at Chipolte. Colin had stuff too many chips and rice into his mouth and was choking and turning purple. Scariest moment of my parental life. We got it out and he is o.k. Thank the Lord.
And because I am still recovering from the whole helpmybabyisturningpurple heart attack, I am going to leave you with one of my favorite pictures of Jack. It is both awkward AND awesome.
We told him he could do 3 silly faces for our family pictures. This was one of them. It reminds me so much of his late great-grandpa Jack.
Have a great week with more awesome than awkward and no awful moment!
