Stellar Parenting Moment

"Did I tell you mommy that you sent the needle to school with me?"
"The needle, with the pink thread. Izzy said you were looking for it."
"I was. I got another one and finished fixing your rain jacket."
"It was hanging on my lei Mommy. I didn't think it should be there."
"Did you wear the lei all day at school?"
"For a little bit. Then I saw the needle."
"Did you show anyone?"
"No Mommy. I just took it off and put it in my backpack. I didn't want to get you in trouble."

Thanks for covering my back Sofi.

Just thought I'd share.

My kids start Spring break today.
I'm not ready.
House is a disaster....again.
Winter projects aren't done.
Not ready to wear a swim suit for three days at a waterpark.
Not ready for endless sibling spats.

I am ready to let go of a crazy schedule for a week and a half.
I am ready to sit in the water dome with the sun beating on my face.
I am ready to relax in a condo with a hot tub.
I am ready to tackle the girls' room with them.
I am ready for warmer weather....

It's snowing again right now.
Three hours until they're home.
Time to finish a decorating proposal.
Time to visit the dentist for a check-up.

Good thing I worked out this morning and chilled in the steam room.
Sitting in the dentist chair is right up there with funeral flower arrangements.

  1. Good girl Sofi! The "got my back" comment made me laugh! Too funny! I have had times like that too. Thank goodness for kids to keep us in line. What would we do without them? Enjoy your spring break! You deserve it!
