one. Tax Free Weekend
If you live in Georgia then you know today is the first day of Tax Free weekend to kick off the school year! Annabelle and I are meeting our friends Kim and Lia at the outlets this morning. The Mommas are on a hunt for some new teachers clothes and Annabelle needs shoes for baby school. Are you shopping tax free this weekend?
I wish I had my parents gardening skills. Ever since I can remember, they’ve always had the most beautiful backyard. I, however, have a black thumb, and whatever I plant dies within a week. I hope that someday I can figure out the world of flowers and maybe have some of my own… but for now, I shall stick with swooning over theirs.
three. bff gf meet ups while on vacationAnnabelle was super excited for Auntie Momo to come visit us in Cape Cod last week! My friendship with Melissa is unique since we only get to see each other a few times a year. It doesn’t matter how far apart our visits are though, every time we are together it’s like we had never been apart. Hopefully in the next few years she and her hubs will start growing their family and Annabelle will have a playmate!
four. down to one nursing session.
Remember that time I said I was weaning Annabelle? Yah… well I couldn’t do it completely. I still nursed her morning and night until three days ago. Now we are down to one nightly session and she is not too pleased. Every morning she clearly requests to “Nurse” but I have to tell her we can only do it when its dark outside. She gets over it quickly if I distract her with food or dancing. I decided to drop the morning nursing session because it is actually inconvenient when we are trying to get her out the door by 6:15am for baby school during the week. Wish us luck come Monday!
five. Who’s Boss?
I have a whole blog post coming up about this… but this week has been spent trying to show Annabelle who’s boss. ME. DADDY. That’s who is boss. Not Annabelle. It’s hard… SO HARD… because we have a smart, sassy, independent but clingy toddler on our hands. She wants to do things on her own terms and sometimes that is just impossible. Anyone have a bossy toddler?
