Currently...



...sitting next to thankfully happy baby who either has the worst allergies or a case of double pink eye.  We'll know in a few hours.

...in the process of drafting up five posts or so simultaneously, but decided to do this one instead because I might actually get around to publishing it today.


...thankful for the weekend I had with my family.  The Husband is traveling for work and I'll be single-moming it up for a few days.  I bow down to those who do this on a regular basis.  Even though he usually leaves for work before we are up and gets home right around the start of bedtime routine, it's just nice to have him see the girls and get some time with them too (and the two extra hands I wish I had).  We will miss him.  Until he's back, we'll talk about our trip to the zoo and playground.  Probably more about the playground.

...getting more requests for sugar.  Between the husband's birthday on Saturday and Mother's Day yesterday, we had plenty of donuts, cupcakes, and ice cream to make Ashlynn remember that sweets do exist and broccoli is bad, bad, bad.

...holding on to the memory of Ashlynn saying "Happy Birthday, Daddy" unprompted after we tucked her in and were walking out of her room on Saturday night.  Definitely a moment I felt imprinted on both our hearts forever.

  4. That is so sweet (about Happy Birthday to daddy!) and that photo at the zoo! I feel like you too. I do basically wake-up to bath time all by myself most days, but it's still hard when the hubs is gone. Hope it's not pink eye!

  7. Oh, your littles are so precious and just melt my heart. I hate it when Ryan has to travel too - being on your own is tough and I can't imagine doing it with two. I'm considering a full moratorium on all husband travel for at least 3 years. :)

  9. Luckily, he doesn't travel often so I can't complain. When we started dating he traveld almost 75%, it was awful and we weren't even married or had kids.
