***I am currently working on the feedburner thing. I will be honest I have no earthly idea what I am doing but I figure with enough google searches and a bit of luck I can figure it out. Sorry for the inconvenience***
As I am sure most of you have experienced, it is back to school time!! Wooo hooo! Goin’ it alone the past seven weeks has made me really excited for school to start. I think the kiddos are just as excited as I am, all my jokes and antics are getting pretty old by now. Finn was lucky and started two weeks before Sawyer. Thank heavens he LOVES it. It was a constant battle to get him to go in Timor and I just wasn’t up for that. Since Sawyer is my super social boy I knew it would be no problem. He walked right up to his door to two boys standing there and said “My name is Sawyer whats yours?” The boys were slightly taken a back but told him their names. Then came the ice breaker from Sawyer “Do you like Star Wars?”, a very deep and I am sure philosophical conversation began and that was that!
Evie and I had no idea what to do with ourselves and our free time, it was lovely! We have also officially arrived as a “soccer” family. We spent two hours last night watching the chaos that is K and Pre-K soccer. What is hilarious is what polar opposites the boys are. If we wanted Finn to pay attention we literally all had to yell at the top of our lungs to follow the ball. Otherwise he spent the majority of the time turning his shirt around to make sure his number 6 was still there.
When I asked him why he kept putting his hands in his shirt he told me it was so he wouldn’t touch the ball. When he ran around with his eyes closed he told me it was because he wanted to “surprise” the other team. Sawyer on the other hand is SUPER competitive. He has been talking all week about how bad he wanted to win, and score, and not get a red card (I don’t know why I even told him what a red card was).
Luckily he had a great break away and stopped 6 goals. After I told him “You did such a great job buddy!” He responded “yeah, I know”. So, apparently this doesn’t need to be a confidence building experience, we’re good in that area ha!
That is the craziness we have been up to. Now on to my seeking some advice. I sadly enough have very lazy cuties. I mean, “mom can you carry me to the car from the front door” lazy kiddos. Since there are three soon to be four of them this makes the battle over the stroller a fierce one. At the zoo the other day I thought the zoo keepers were going to get involved ha! We are currently in the market for a new double. Ideally I want to purchase 2 doubles so that there is some semblance of peace as we attempt to blend in in Paris and stroll down the seine as a family. Do any of you have a COMPACT, awesome double stroller you just love? So far I am swaying toward the Phil and Ted (though at first the whole baby stacking totally shocked me)
But my dream is the Baby Jogger City Select Double. This looks fantastic!
But the price tag literally made me gasp. When I talked to Chris about it he joked “well if we are going to spend that much we might as well go all the way and get the Peg Preggo double, I mean it is only $1,200.00″ OH MY GOSH. Who has that kind of mola? Anyway I would love something similar with a family friendly price tag and would love any suggestions.
Cheers to all us Mommas trying not to take up the entire walkway at the mall right?
