|Kid clothes nightmare|
That big project is going through ALL of the old kid's clothes. Yes, we have an excessive amount. At least 90% of this needs to go. The rest I will hang onto for family and friends when they have kids. If they don’t mind gently used or like new kid clothes I will happily ship them out so I can see my future Niece or Nephew wearing my kid's clothes. That said it is not a little task by any means and being sick was not helping anything. I don’t think I had too many emotional attachments to items as I just wanted to get it done. I worked on this most of the morning while Bear was at school.
When he came home we went into our normal routine of bath and snack time before playing a game or two on the floor. We barely made it through snack time when the problems started to pop up. Eves temperature went up a bit and she got super cranky. I feel around in her mouth and sure enough, a new molar is coming in. Which also explains the horrible diaper rash and picky eating.
I also take the time to go through Bears backpack and clean it out. Inside I found the money for his class pictures that he had taken earlier that morning. After messaging the teacher I found out the money needed to be in her hands before the end of the day or Bear would not get a class picture. Getting back to the school which is all of a 1/2 mile from the house so I could easily get it there in time. The problem was it was pouring outside and the kids and I were in pajamas. On top of that, I looked at Eve to find this...
I now had a sleeping child I need to wake up and get dressed to drive the short distance to the school. Five minutes into scrambling around I say screw it and get myself dressed and toss shoes and coats and head to the car. I had Bear hang back so he does get soaked waiting to get in the car. With both buckled in, I realized I forgot the slip and had to run back inside for it. Ugh!
|at least he was happy|
Once at the school, I unbuckle both kids and we book it to front door since the rain picked up. Bear was in the only jacket I could find that sort of fit him. It was way too small but whatever. We waited about 10 minutes in the lobby for someone to help me. Thankfully the receptionist said she would get it where it needed to go on time. Hallelujah! We all ran back to the car and I made Bear crawl under Eve’s seat while I buckled her in so he wasn’t standing in the rain.
Once we were back at home I needed to snap a picture of just how funny my kids were dressed. I’m so glad they are too little to care!
I changed back into comfy clothes when we got home which really puts me on par with how the kids were dressed. One giant mess of a day for sure. Could you not tell by the look of it.
We went simple with dinner and made fish stick and whatever sides they both wanted. Goldfish crackers and an apple were picked and frankly, I was too exhausted to care. Hubby and I had leftover Shepherd's pie which was delicious!

Then my amazing husband decided to surprise me with macaroons and Starbucks! Seriously you all, he knew I needed a pick me up and delivered without ever asking. It was exactly the pick me up I needed!
