I think September and May must be the busiest months of the year when you have school aged children. We are barely keeping afloat over in the Martin House, but I know it's like that in all your houses too! Here's some things that have been on my mind lately...
~ We have a guy that dresses like Jesus and walks around our town. Here he is:
I'm not sure what his deal is, but all I know that every time I go for a run and I see him on the street, I turn and run the opposite way. And then I think WWJD? And I decided that Jesus would probably tell me to run away too. It's scary being a female runner when there are people roaming the street!
~ When Phil and I started having kids, we decided we would be super strict on two issues. The first being naps and bedtimes, and the second being limiting screen time. When I was home with the kids the tv was never on unless it was their designated half hour show time. We were so good about that rule! Ugh, now we are old and lazy and have definitely let Alexander have way more screen time than the other kids. The kid can win levels on Super Mario on the Nintendo DS. And he just turned three! Impressive but embarrassing. When we pick him up from school he starts asking to play video games, when he wakes up in he morning he asks for a show, it's 24/7 nonstop begging for screens.
I'm not sure what to do...go cold turkey? Can I retrain his brain into not wanting the glow of the screen all the time? (At least the sleep rules are still in place!)
~ I need a new Miraculous Medal. I had a beautiful little gold one that I loved but have somehow lost, and am looking around to replace it. I don't want anything too big, it has to be gold, and I would even take a bracelet instead of a necklace if I couldn't find the perfect necklace. Does anyone know of a good shop or website?
~ I'm getting a haircut tomorrow! This is exciting since it happens about once a year. But, I have been losing hair postpartum like crazy since the birth of DK.

Phil was vacuuming a couple weeks ago (I know, he stole my favorite chore, the nerve!) and decided to clean out the bottom of the vacuum because it wasn't sucking as well as a Dyson should. This is what he cut out:
And texted it to me saying that at least he could make me a wig. Guys, I might need a wig, it's falling out like it's never fallen out before! It seems to get worse after each baby, even though I take Biotin everyday. Here's some horrifying proof:
So what kind of haircut should I get to help hide this? Maybe this one? Or should I just start saving my money for a good wig?
~ And finally, one last photo of my firstborn, enjoying a treat he's been asking to try for two years now! We finally found a restaurant that served Fried Ice Cream!!

OK that's enough over sharing for today, see ya in the comment box :)
