We're knee deep in potty training over here.

It came up over the weekend that I haven't blogged much lately (hi, Cindy!). So I'm going to change that. 

I'm making so much of an effort that I'm going to schedule time in my week to blog to you. 

I'm going to start this weekend. 

Here's a picture of our potty-training and two toothed children to hold you over.

Go away, Summer, you're drunk.

I woke up this morning and put on pants and a sweater.

It's July 15th.

I should not be putting on pants and a sweater in July.

Needless to say we haven't been to the pool too much this summer.

Here's to hoping it starts warming and drying up.

Happy Birthday to the Monkey who brings us so much joy

and words (lots of them)

and laughter

and is the best big sister/little mommy a brother could as for. 

(check out that cell phone sticking of her pocket)

It helps when someone picks out the birthday card they want you to get them.

While in Davidson last weekend we stopped in a bookstore because, well, have you met C?

Monkey knows her birthday's coming up.  So she went right up to the greeting cards, pulled one out, and marched over to me.

Monkey: Here, Mommy, you can get this card for me for my birthday.

I didn't get the book as it turns out it's YAF (and I'm almost 30). 

I have no problems with YAF, it just don't fit into my current lifestyle which fluctuates between playing princess with a 3 year old and trying to be an adult.

A picture is worth 1,000 179 words

I had a meeting last night so I worked late in order for us to leave earlier for Fort Wayne on Friday.

Despite having a blah day at work, C brought me dinner on his way home from picking up the kids.

We thought they'd be fine if I ran down to the car to get my dinner.

Monkey wasn't fine. She wanted to come eat dinner in Mommy's office.  Tears ensued. 

GMac wasn't fine. He was tired of his car seat, spit up, and needed to poop. Tears also ensued. (He pooped as soon as they got home. phew)

They went wah, wah, wah all the way home. (It's less than a mile.)

I ate dinner then got myself situated to pump only to realize I forgot a single piece. 

So I texted C (who had just gotten everyone calmed down) and we both agreed it'd be best for him to leave the part on the porch and close the curtains so Monkey wouldn't see me. 

And that's how a Medela pump part ended up on our porch.

I hit the mail jackpot

Last Thursday was such a good mail day I've decided to blog about it.

I got a SECOND June Birchbox. The stuff was exactly the same but that's ok because I liked most of it.

I also got a $4.35 refund check or a free grande, extra hot mocha (whichever way you want to look at it) from Navient (for my student loans). Something about not communicating their late fee policy so they were issuing a refund (I'm guessing everyone got it because it's hard to be late on a payment when you are auto withdrawn.)

And then I got my contacts rebate check.

I was #winning.

And now you can get on with your more interesting than this blog post day.
