So, remember the flood of 2011 that happened here at our house just two days before Ace was born? Yep, we're just about fully recovered. Carpet tomorrow and then voila... DONE.
Along with the contractors that have been at our place all week making nap times a little bit shorter and more haphazard than usual, we've been cleaning up a few other mediocre things that we could certainly have done without, but alas, life isn't always full of deliriously happy things... just most of the time. :)
In no particular order, I am the proud owner of a new temporary crown. I must have been REALLY focused in the delivery room because I cracked a tooth and thought I could stop in for a quick fix at the dentist that turned into two hours and ultimately a new porcelain fake number. Sexy.
The little boys and the big boy and I all got the privilege of receiving our flu shots last night. Only minor tears were shed and then suckers were offered and we were on our way. It was hilarious to see the reactions of other kids at the pediatrician's office. In fact, while we were waiting our turn a little boy came out crying with tears running down his cheeks and Kaelster said, "Oh Dear." You got that right.
My hair straightener died. I'm considering holding a service. Quality beauty tools such as a straightener do not come cheap and it takes a very significant amount of timing and energy to get us all out of the house mid-day for a lame errand like a trip to Sally's. Thus, my hair has been looking less than spectacular.
Now for the silver lining...
The babies are soaking in the last few days of our Indian Summer with a vengeance. They are revisiting their affinity for nudity and they strip off their diapers the moment they can wriggle out of their wet shorts.
I never complain. Sweet little cheeks.
Acer's continues to be a baby from dream land. He got his newborn pictures taken - though the one below is not one of them - just a shot from an adoring mama. It is always a sweaty chore to bundle, soothe, swaddle and repeat, but it is oh so worth it. Can't wait to share.
I haven't had to cook all week - THANK YOU friends and neighbors!
And it's Friday... which is the same as any other day in motherhood - except there is an underlying optimism because it's FRIDAY.
And that, my friends, is all she wrote, cause she's in the midst of mediocrity, but about to bounce back... watch out, October.
