Guys. My baby is a masterful artist. Just look at the mask he colored for Chinese New Year's:
As well as what he called "Pentatonix" Phil:
And finally, this drawing of Martin Luther King he created:
The attention to detail! The coloring skills! He's only 5 years old!
(Tell me I have a future artist on my hands and I'm not a completely biased mom, as my husband says I am).
It has been Catholic School's Week around here and crazy hair day was the highlight for my K-8 kiddos:
Declan (7) wants to wear his hair in a mohawk every day now. Thank goodness I can blame Catholic school rules when I tell him "absolutely not".
This week I had to take a three day course about Public Contracting. It was boring as all get out. Maybe it's a mid-life crisis, but I'm totally questioning my career choice. I even googled "are accountants happy?" and this is what I got back:
Sounds about right.
If only I could get paid to stay home to run my household and raise my kids.
Phil's not allowed to buy me Valentine flowers (because his wife is difficult), so he bought me February flowers instead. He's a keeper :)
2/2/22 is a cool date, and Declan's 2nd grade class celebrated with cute hats...but 2/22/22 will actually fall on a Tuesday!
Dinners this week:
Sunday - Pulled pork (I just put a pork shoulder + can of root beer + spices in the crockpot for like 12 hours) on hawaiian rolls with fries and pineapple
Monday - Leftover Pulled pork turned into tacos for kids and GF Enchilada Casserole (made with corn tortillas) for adults
Tuesday - Korean Beef Bowl with coconut rice + green beans
(I tried to convince kids it was Chinese food for Chinese New Year's but they told me Korea was not China. Stinks to have smart kids.)
Wednesday - Pasta with (not homemade) meatballs
Thursday - Burgers with Crunchy Cashew Thai Quinoa Salad
Friday - Eggplant Parmesan
That's a weekly wrap! Hope you all have a nice non-football watching weekend, and stay safe in the freezing rain storm if you're a local!
