i am slowly but surely blogging less and less.
i think it's just because i spend my days on a computer now,
so i don't come home at night and get it back out again.
but i know i miss snippets of our lives and the
whole point is to give my girls something to look back on when
they're older since my baby books are both seriously lacking.
so here's a little recap.
i turned 34. ew.
ronnie had to work later (of course) but
my parents happen to be in town so the girls
and i went out to dinner with them at red lobster.
i discovered that both my kids l o v e seafood.
ronnie is officially outnumbered, yesssss.
i see salmon and shrimp and tilapia in our future.
i did get some pretty cool presents,
(probably bc ronnie felt bad he worked late)
since we normally don't do gifts, but it was all stuff i've been
wanting, but didn't want to spend our money on.
i've been trying to take the kids to an apple orchard for weeks.
it's either been raining or we've been busy.
i THINK we're going to go this weekend as long as
the rain holds off.
brette has a field trip planned at school to go to the
pumpkin patch next week, so I took off work for it.
i'm going to grab reid out of her class so we can all go.
i'm excited to get these fall festivities started.
speaking of which, i wore sweat pants and made chili last night.
that's has to make things official.
we took family photos last weekend.
i wanted to wait until later october for the leaves to change, but
our photographer is due in october so was only scheduling
pictures through the end of September.
it was 90 degrees outside and i made
everyone wear long sleeves.
i wanted FALL pictures for the Christmas card,
instead i got sweaty faces and children not willing to cooperate.
by three surely reid will be able to function like a human
for family pictures, right?
next year will be better?
there's something about them that makes her lose her mind.
we did get a few cute ones, but i don't LOVE any of all 4 of us.
oh another little update?
reid has started biting.
shoot. me. now.
she has bit the same little boy in her class twice.
she doesn't leave a mark - thank god - but i'm sure
this poor little boy's mom wants to hulk out on the
evil little redhead abusing her son and i totally don't blame her.
then she bit brette on saturday.
that went over well.
brette now bosses reid around everyday about being nice and
reid says "you be nice" and then brette responds until they are
both screaming and fighting with each other to BE NICE.
please, don't swarm with all my parenting awards at once.
i've been reading articles online for suggestions and i bought
a board book that reid and i can read together.
her teacher isn't really concerned and says reid is just frustrated that
she doesn't have all her words yet, but i still hate life.
let me know if you've dealt with this and what worked for you.
(unless your suggestion is for me to bite her back. i just can't, ya'll.)
here's our new book.
so there's my little update.
hopefully i'll be back here again soon
with the girls' school pics!
