How can it possibly be Friday already? With the Monday holiday and a snow day on Wednesday, this week absolutely flew by!
On Monday, we teamed up with Clan Donaldson and went to the Museum of Science in Boston. I don't know why we don't do this more often, as we have free passes because of our membership to a cheap little zoo near our house. The kids loved playing with the Donaldsons, as usual, and were very happy to see the Lightening Show. If I was a homeschooler, we would do field trips every day. Which is probably a great reason I'm not a homeschooler :)
After the Museum, Ken and Cari forced us to walk for miles and miles in the cold winter air until we found the greatest pizza ever in the North End. Oh my goodness, was that pizza divine. Then Phil found me a Cannoli Florentine after I had a little hormonally charged pity party for myself when I realized the bakery we had first entered only took cash, and cash, I had not.
When we got home, I warned the boys that I was going to cut their scraggly hair, and methinks thou doth protested too much, so I packed them up and brought them to a new hair place for a semi-professional to do the dirty work for me. Since the shop was having a grand opening, the haircuts were only $4.99 each! And, as they all reported to me after, the most exciting part was that nobody got their ears nicked and they put powder on their necks to help wipe off the hair. My boys are forever spoiled now. There's nothing like a good ear-nicking to ground a child.
|3 heads = $14.97 and no complaints!|
I heard on the radio yesterday that keeping your house cold helps you lose weight! Score!! We keep our heat at 65 during the day (when we're at home) and 60 at night. Repeat after me: Thrifty = thin.
How sad is the news that Justin Bieber got arrested for a DUI? I mean, we all knew it was kind of coming, but fame sure does ruin people.
I had a dream this week that I got invited to a One Direction concert and I was sooooo excited, but then I remembered that I'm a 34 year old pregnant mom and got embarrassed. Whatever, their songs are catchy.
Speaking of pregnancy...
I saw the midwife yesterday (I'm at the every 2 week appointments now) and told her that I think the baby was transverse because all the movements I can feel are on the sides of my belly, and I can breathe a lot better. Sure enough, Baby Martini is laying like so:
I'm almost 32 weeks, so I still have time for him/her (but we all know it's a him) to turn. My midwife lovingly reminded me that once you have as many babies as I have, there's a lot of room in there for baby to move around. Well excuuuuuuse me :) I'll start trying some of these exercises soon.
Have a great weekend everybody!!
