So this post may not be aptly named since it is 10:50 on a Monday night and by the time you folks are reading it, it will be Tuesday (or close to it).
Things have been a bit slow going around here. It is a do puzzles, hang around in the backyard kind of summer so far.
With lunch–aka our pizza factory–as the highlight.
I mean it in the most loving way possible of course. Hudson is like, hey mom! I’m hungry! FEED ME! all.the.time. He is too young for sunscreen, keeping him in the shade is hard and he gets all hot and sweaty in that car seat carrier. And who am I kidding–getting us out the door is not a walk in the park. I am working on it though.
In other equally exciting news we decided to cut down 5 bushes in our yard. I don’t know what got in to me, but all of the sudden shrubbery was my enemy.
Yes, we are the people with a flower box and no flowers. I know. I really want to replace the flower box, hence it never getting filled. I also really want to replace my front door and get a new walk way and get rid of the wrought iron and…. oh man the list goes on. Are you seeing dollar signs. Yeah, me too! The pile of shrubbery looked something like this.
All that nonsense, especially by the porch was cramping my style. We also decided we had enough of the garage disaster.
My kids have too much stuff. No joke. I cannot even begin to tell you how crazy stuffed our garage was. This picture is like 1/100th of that garage disaster.
But seriously, you aren’t reading this post to see me take out my anger on bushes or to look at piles of my kids’ junk. You are here because I promised–or at least the title suggested–a cure for the cases of the Mondays.
I hope this video brings you as much joy as it does his father, because I have caught Ross watching this and laughing.
In Quinn’s defense, he made the jump several times before asking dad to tape it. In my defense, they were ahead of me on the hike because I would have never allowed this. Broken ankle? Arm? Anyone? Also, in my defense–Quinn finds this video funny and is okay with me sharing it so laugh freely.
So tell me–What kind of summer are you having? Jam-packed? Lazy? Anyone else go to town on their shrubs? Anyone attack the garage? And more importantly, what have you caught your kids doing on camera?
