What I'm loving...and what I'm not.

Pin It Now!


A few things I've been loving these days...

******
1) Working on the kids joint birthday party.

This is what happens when Oliver, Mya and Carter are all born in the same month. It won't be joint every year, but they're still little enough to think it's great to do it together. So we'll roll with it.

I'm excited though, since this year we decided to only invite their little friends, like a BIG kid party (Mya tells me). Their friends who they play with regularly, who they've known since they were babies and who they really know to be their friends. We're all a little excited over here.

Here is a little sneak peak at what's to come...


but the rest is hidden away in my basement, away from curious little eyes and curious little hands. Because she just. can't. wait. 

2) Mya started pre-school.


She absolutely loves it.

But she loves wearing her new backpack just as much. Everywhere she goes.




3) Brother/sister chats on the couch...


finished off with a smooch goodbye.


 4) One year olds playing the piano. Doesn't miss a day without those fingers touching the keys.


5) Pumpkin patch fun today.





 



6) Finding this letter in my mailbox this week--well, Mya actually found it (as you can tell)...


...a one hour massage booked for me at my favourite spa in town. One of those fancy spas where you get a foot bath while flower pedals float in the water, and where a little chocolate is waiting for you on your massage table, while cucumbers are placed on your eyelids and candles are lit. It's absolute heaven.

He knows me too well this boy.
Knows me well enough to know that I'm too cheap, and too busy with the kids to book an appointment for myself...and smart enough to know that when his wife tells him that she wants a marriage full of surprises and thoughtful moments, he actually follows through. Thanks TBar.

Things I'm NOT loving these days...

1) Why does she look like a teenager to me already some days??! Seriously. Stop it. Just quit your growing up so quickly--and let's not even begin to talk about how you're already on your way to school next year. Your mother is going to have a heart attack. Seriously.  



2) He found the liquor cabinet. 


And now all of our liquor has become a beautifully large center piece on our dining room table, up high away from tiny fingers.

Baby locks, here we come.

Those locks drive me nuts.

Happy weekend everyone!!
