It's been quite a week since my perfect, super calm, non dramatic, did I mention perfect Mother's Day.
No really - my Mother's Day was absolutely wonderful. The hubby got me a card (and actually signed it this year) and my favorite gift: Money. I told the kids that their gift to me was to take a long nap. They bought it and they did just that.
Now, at work I have this little toy that sits next to my computer - it came from a Happy Meal and it has two buttons: When you push one it says "Yaaaaaayyyy!" and if you push the other button it says "Booooo!" I need to find another one that can go in my purse, because if any week warranted a few Yay's and a few Boo's, it would have been this one.
Monday was appointment day for us. We had B's four year well visit (with no shots) in the morning and then preschool screening in the afternoon. Grandma and Grandpa had Em for the day so it was just the two of us. My boy was over 42 Inches tall and weighed 39 pounds. In the afternoon I took him to his new preschool for screening. He did great, except for the following things:
1. He refused to copy shapes. Just flat out refused.
2. He cannot hop for 5 seconds on either foot. He could stand on one - just not hop. Oh well - they let him in anyways :)
Monday = Yay!!!!!!
Tuesday was B's actual birthday. I took the day off of work because that's one thing I promised myself I would always do. As a working mom, I am completely aware that I've missed some pretty important things. And it sucks, however from the day he was born I made a promise to him and any future children that they would A. Have some kick ass birthday parties and B. Have my full attention on the actual day of their birth.
We partied hard on Saturday at the park with a "Messy Birthday Party". I filled his room up with balloons Monday night after he went to sleep. They eventually made there way to the living room which was perfectly fine. I downloaded all of the new games he got on his new video game thing he got for his birthday. I made him his favorite breakfast. We went to see The Avengers and we came home and made pizzas and ate cake. It was a great, great day.
Tuesday = Yay!!!!!
Wednesday was my first day back to work from a 4 days off. It wasn't so bad - I only had 12 voicemails and 505 emails to catch up on. It wasn't really that bad, but the day was prety uneventful.
Wednesday: Yay!!!!!! For being uneventful and Boo!!!!!! for having to go back to work!
Thursday came in two parts. First of all, we bought a new truck which we got to pick up later in the evening. It was supposed to take an hour. It took more like 3. Oh well, it's nice, my husband is happy and we all love it.
So - Part one Thursday = Yay!!!!
Part two (which actually came before Part One) was when Em (who is 2) broke her wrist in two places. It's in a splint now - it's getting casted on Monday. A long story short, she was standing on a chair looking at our fish tank. (Sometimes it sucks being extra short). She turned around and fell off and landed just right (or wrong) and broke her wrist. My husband felt like crap because it was on his watch. But it could have happened to anyone. Last week she was standing on the same chair playing with her brothers legos, while I was cooking dinner and she fell off. I was lucky in that she didn't break anything. I (along with anyone else that knows our family) would have placed money that B would be the one that would have broken the first bone - go figure. As I said, we're casting on Monday. And that cast is going to be bedazzled out the wazoo. No daughter of mine will have a plain cast. On a side note - she calls the splint her "puppet". It's pretty dang cute!
Part Two Thursday = Boooo!!!!!
Friday we celebrated my dad's retirement with a big bash in my sisters and cousins backyard (they live next door to each other). I don't have any pictures but it was fun - I love a good party - especially one that celebrates not having to go to work anymore.
Friday = Yay!!!!!!!!
We did nothing today and it was beautiful. I took a nap and I had a 50% success rate with getting my kids to take a nap. My husband went and picked up dinner for us so I wouldn't have to cook. I pinned on pinterest, laundered the laundry, and played some Legos. I watched Finding Nemo with my kids. And I put them to bed - they are both fast asleep. My treat for the week? See below. I'm ending Saturday with a 100%: Yay!!!!!!!
