I LIVED! honestly- it wasn't that bad. my in-laws took alex overnight on friday so i got to "sleep in" saturday morning. i use " " because i still had to get up at 4:30am to pump & feed brynn- but we got to go back to sleep until like 7ish. glorious.
i then used the remainder of the day to do all the things alex doesn't allow me to do. boring yet effective.
we then braved church on sunday. thankfully my church has a soundproof children's room. fabulous because alex has no idea how to sit in church. my fault? yes. but i plan to remedy that. my mother & siblings were also in attendance- so they took over charge of alex after church (hello snack time) and i flitted around with brynn (who was quickly stolen from my arms & passed around to half of the town. i'm ok with that)
i was tickled because everyone kept commenting on how adorable my child was- but you know what people noticed the most? her perfect eyebrows. every. single. woman. commented on her eyebrows.
then they would look at mine (for comparison obviously) and i thanked God that i'd taken the time to pluck them the day before. because they were pretty rough for awhile.
also- did i mention that brynn crapped more than she ever has in her life? yes. bright yellow seedy poop all over her adorable church outfit. she has NEVER pooped through her clothes. i use an entire package of wipes.
it was a lot. like, i think there was some in her eyelashes. vom.
and then we headed home & the husband arrived around 6ish. and it was like he never left- except alex side eyed him for about 5 minutes.
now today- he's back to work & i'm back to the norm.
except it's not a normal day- because it's -10 outside. did you read that right?
NEGATIVE TEN DEGREES!!!
disgusting. and i have to go out. today = my 6 week pp checkup. and we need food and milk & laundry detergent. NEED!
so i will bundle up the girls & head out into the frozen tundra. because we also need mini marshmallows. because my cocoa isn't the same without them.
and i'll leave you with the following:
shoes: See Kai Run
and, can you tell what these are?
why, they're gnomes of course. right?
alex loved them. or rather, she loves picking off the eyes & nose & inhaling them. and then licking off all the cinnamon & sugar & tossing the cookie.
