Summer break. Day 1

So much for silence around here during the day. Honestly I was looking forward to having the kids home everyday, even though I knew they would be totally wild at time. BUT THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER BREAK!?!? Come on guys!

So first I think whats more awesome than having a picnic at the spray ground, then of course play in the water and on the play ground. Instantly the boys protest and don’t want to go or even entertain the thought of putting on swim shorts. Fine, whatever. I get there and who was right? I was- they wished they had worn the swim pants.

After wards after much begging I stop and let Ethan spend his money on Pokemon cards, After 15 minutes (ok maybe 10, but it felt like 15) looking at the same section of Pokemon cards, I offer to go back to the toy department to see if there are any other kinds back their, he freaks and drops to his knees at Target. OMG. Are you kidding? Did he just do THAT?!? Hes never, even as a baby went that far. That was it. I loaded us all back into the car.


Fast forward (past all the bickering) to bed time. Naturally the fuss.. Chandler ends up in Ethans bed. Jayde ends up somewhere in between. Out of almost no where I hear a gut wrenching scream. I run into the room and see Jayde holding her eye… the eye that just mere days ago was swollen shut. Its all red and puffy. Once again. OMG . Are you kidding? Did he just do THAT?!?

Im starting to see a trend for summer that I’m not liking. At all.

Heres to hoping tomorrows not as wild. Oh, and her eye, still red. She’s cuddled up with an ice pack.


What’s for Lunch 5/22

Tomorrow the boys are going to Holiday World with school so Jayde was the only one who needed a lunch. So she picked out all of her favorite things. Bear with us, these are our first tries at bento style boxes. So far the kids adore them!

She picked bananna and Nutella sandwich wraps, naturally with little swords holding them together.Strawberries, celery (she didnt want anything to dip it in) cheese chunks, and peanut bar. With a fruitable for drink.

Im super shocked the closest thing to junk food she chose was the peanut bar, and she wasnt super interested in it.
