I hope all of you have a great Halloween!
I dressed-up as a pregnant kitty.
Day 28: Lunch
Not the healthiest lunch, but it’s about all I have the energy for these days.
Day 29: Inside Your Fridge
Day 30: Nature
There’s some grass…that counts as nature, right?
I took Amelia to a play-group Halloween party this morning. She had her space cadet jumpsuit on, her clunky winter boots, her NASA hat covered by her furry hood and her Hello Kitty in her Build-a-Bear backpack. She clomped all the way to the school and you could tell she thought she was the coolest kid ever. I hung back and watched her for a few moments and tried to soak it in.
She’s a goofy girl, a really goofy girl. It might not come across at first but once you spend time getting to know her you see that she’s a little…odd/funny/quirky. Which is good, I really love that about her. She reminds me of myself. But as I watched her I had an emotional mommy moment: I’m not looking forward to the day where she no-longer feels ‘cool’ in her space suit while carrying around her Hello Kitty. Amelia is growing-up so quickly and while I LOVE seeing her mature and become a beautiful girl inside and out I’m sad that I’m losing my little girl at the same time. It’s a good thing there’s another one on the way because it was one of those moments where I would have given anything to have another little Erskine.
Day 25: Something You Made
Ammie has ‘letter’ homework that’s sent home on Fridays.
Yesterday she walked in the door and demanded I draw her a Buffalo for her ‘B’ page.
We’ve been having a lot of fun decorating her homework pages every weekend…not sure what her teacher thinks though.
Day 26: Colour
Instead of cleaning the kitchen I sat down with Amelia and helped her build a colourful Lego house.
The house had a built-in feeder for her horse and a flat-screen TV for the mom.
Lunch Light (Today was supposed to be lunch but I got my days mixed-up…sorry)
The kids were at a glow-bowling birthday party this evening.
I didn’t realize that I had so much lint on my sweater until we walked through the doors…
Day 23: Something Old
Oreo has celebrated their 100th birthday by coming out with a limited edition Birthday Cake cookie. Wow.
Day 24: Guilty Pleasure
I can thinking of a few guilty pleasures that I have; skittles, coffee while pregnant, watching a few awful shows on Slice (like Pregnant In Heels)…but I didn’t take a picture of any of those today. Instead, while cleaning-up and adjusting the baby’s car seat Amelia wanting her Hello Kitty to be the first to try it out, so that’s what you have a picture of today.
