Random Thoughts From This Week

1. My youngest turned 2 yesterday. When she woke up I asked her what she wanted for breakfast and she said pizza. She got a little upset when I told her we didn't have any pizza, but I assured her we'd get some for dinner. She was happy as could be after that. :)

2. It was my anniversary on Tuesday. We've been married 9 years. I can't believe it has been that long. It feels like yesterday when he proposed! We had a great day though. And we've had an amazing 9 years. Looking forward to a LOT more!

3. The weather is getting warmer, which means spring is almost here!! YAY!!! I'm so excited. I love the spring. My kids have our Easter stuff out, so there are plastic eggs all over my house. Good times.

4. I've been editing Fairy Tale all week. My editor is so amazing. She gives me suggestions and feedback, and even puts little smiley faces and comments on things she loves. It makes me feels much less overwhelmed with everything. She rocks. It's funny, going back through this manuscript. I've had a few lines of dialogue and things that I've gone back and was like, "What was I thinking when I wrote that? It's so stupid!" But, my editor kindly points it out. She doesn't say I suck rocks. Which is a good thing. :)

5. I registered my 5-year old for Kindergarten yesterday. I have to say I'm a little more emotional about her going to school than when my son went. She's in preschool right now, but only 2 days a week for 2 hours. She's such a big helper. I'm going to miss her when the baby comes in September. Oh, and it will be so awesome driving to the school to drop off my son, driving home, driving BACK to school a few hours later to drop her off, driving home, and driving back to pick them up a few hours later. All with a newborn. And a two year old. I'm way excited. But, such is life. :)

Anything exciting you guys want to share?  Have a great weekend!!

Ah, the life of a chauffeur, I mean mom.

Happy birthday to you littlest (for a while, anyway) and congrats on nine years of marriage!

We have plastic eggs all around my house, too. But the jelly bean jar makes it worth having the Easter decorations out. : )

Chantele, ur an angel to keep going...with a smile! I have a 2 yr old and the thought of another baby right now makes me want to vomit! (in a non pregnant way...I better not be Prego!)

Juggling four kids. I just can't imagine.

Happy Anniversary!! My son just turned 2 on Monday!! :D

Congrats on nine years! Our weather is still a little too hormonal for me to get too excited. 48 hours ago I was in short sleeves and 48 hours from now we are supposed to be buried in snow. Wondering if you "northerners" are as up and down as we are in the wind tunnel of America :)

Happy Anniversary! And congrats on your edits. What an exciting time.

Ruth Josse said...

Yay for anniversaries and birthdays! I think sending each child off to school gets harder. Soon I won't have any babies left! Also, yay for springtime and awesome editors!

Super sad that I don't get to see you this weekend. :(

Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday to your youngest.

Three kids was all I could handle. I ran out of energy.

Congrats on the anniversary. :^)

Pizza is a great birthday meal. Our oldest had pizza on her second birthday--hubby put candles on it, too. Daughter #2 was born on Daughter #1's birthday--so I was in the hospital and hubby can't cook. Pizza solved the problem.

Christine Rains said...

Happy anniversary and happy birthday to your little one! My son turns two next month. He loves pizza too!

Kelley said...

Wow, look at all your awesome family stuff! Congrats on the anniversary!

And it sounds like you're very lucky with your editor! So cool!

You know what goes with plastic Easter eggs...Easter grass. I'm still vacuuming it up from last year.

Sarah Pearson said...

Happy belated Anniversary, and birthday to your little one :-)

Your editor sounds fabulous! And yay that she doesn't say you suck rocks! ;)

When my daughter started kindergarten, I did fine. And then I drove out of the parking lot, pulled off the side of the road, and went Holy crap! What did I just do?! And yes. Bucket loads of fun making that trip to school three times a day. :D
