September is almost here and I’m so dang glad. Mainly because it’s one step closer to fall weather for us living in Phoenix, which is still about a month and a half away. Secondly because the launching of my book is over with and my nerves can R E L A X. Thirdly because it’s almost holiday season, eeek! Can’t wait.
1. One last, sweet summer trip
It was a hot one, but my boys loved this beach more than any beach we’ve been to because there were SO MANY sea shells that had living things in them, and tons of fish and crabs. Also sting rays, which I almost stepped on twice. If anyone is going to have an awkward encounter with animals while on a family trip, it would be me. I’m pleasantly surprised I didn’t crap my pants or totally humiliate myself in some other way on this trip! #winning
2. Anything Can Be book love
Seriously I smile from ear to ear for like an hour straight after people post something about my book on Facebook/Instagram, etc. It’s just the sweetest, coolest thing.
3. Bunny book debate?
Have you heard of the bunny book written by a Swedish psychologist that supposedly helps put your kids to sleep? There are debates out there now, parents arguing back and forth over it’s validity. And of course, as always, the “too cool for school” moms are out there posting about how they think it’s stupid and creepy. Whatev! While they debate, I’ll be over here putting my kids to sleep with it for as long as it works.
Boo yah, I win.
4. Kiddies update
Living with a 2 and 4 year old has been…fun times….recently. Dacky, my little one, is 2.5 and definitely getting that 3 year old psychosis attitude recently. Nothing can be broken or tainted in anyway. Which doesn’t jive well with my 4 year old who is also still in psycho mode. It’s like living with two insane people who go at it all day. I walk on eggshells praying I don’t royally piss off one of their souls by looking at them wrong or offering them a bruised grape.
I attempted cutting their hair before we left for the beach this weekend. Their hair is always off because they cry or move the entire time, but I don’t even care because their hair grows out so fast anyway.
Piggie refused to stand next to Dacky because he said he didn’t smell good. That’s another new thing – Piggie thinks any bad smell in the world is from Dacky or because Dacky’s penis touched it (Dacky goes naked a lot). The other day Piggie melted to the floor like the bad witch from the Wizard of Oz with one hand in the air, saying “His penis touched my hand and now it smells baaaaaaad!!!” Ugh, whoever said boys aren’t dramatic never had a 4 year old son.
