NaBloPoMo 2017: Day 14: So many clothes

OMG do the girl’s ever have a lot of clothes!! TOO many for such young children. What does that mean for later in life?! Yikes. Anyway, I have spent the last 3 days going through the girl’s drawers/closets and taking out all the clothing that is too small. It’s been a job I have been putting off for months. It took me 3 days to do because naps have not been cooperating with me. Napping has been practically non-existent for Ezri because she’s been sick all week. You would think she would want to sleep when she’s sick, but she’s the opposite. Boo. Of course I haven’t been able to get the girls to nap at the same time of day either. Sigh. Oh well, it’s done now and I feel quite relieved.

I put everything in one big huge pile and then sorted from that. Our bedroom was a MESS yesterday. I really wish I took a picture because it was a scary sight. I had to keep moving things around so that we could actually use our bed to sleep hahaha. While sorting the clothing, I found many pieces that were size 0-3 months for Jadzia and 12-18 months for Ezri. Ooops, see, I told you I have been putting it off.

I also sorted out some pieces that I found that had been in the nursery closet since Ezri was a newborn. Therefore I decided to also make a pile to sell/donate. There are some things that I know I will never put on my kids. Leg warmers, for example, which I found 3 pairs of (still with tags on).

Oh it feels so good to clean and be organized. I really should do it more often and not wait so long in between purges!! So then it won’t be such a huge job.

NaBloPoMo 2017: Day 13 – A Bad Moms Christmas

A Bad Moms Christmas

Guess what?! This mama got to go out and have an adult night with a friend! We went to see A Bad Moms Christmas. It was really good. Very funny. It might have even been better than the first Bad Moms movie, which was quite enjoyable too. I needed a night out to laugh and this just did the trick perfectly.

The best part of the movie was definitely the “stripper Santa” played by Justin Hartley. He had me laughing the most, plus he wasn’t bad to look at 😉

The trio of moms in this comedy is so perfect together. They just have the greatest relationship and chemistry. Each have their own personalities and they meld together so nicely. Definitely some unique parenting going on, haha. The Moms (so Grandmas, I guess) of the trio were the worst, like, seriously. Makes me so grateful I have an awesome Mom and that I would never treat my children the way those Moms do. Although I realize, they were over dramatized for the point of the movie. Still, I have to say that watching these movies makes me feel like a pretty great Mom, LOL. I know everyone has their flaws and there’s no such thing as a perfect parent, but compared to some of the things that happen in this movie (and the first), I’m doing pretty well.

I’m glad this movie was so joyful. I hate going to a movie and coming out of it feeling like I wasted my money. It’s a good one to see and I recommend it if you’re looking for a few laughs!

NaBloPoMo 2017: Day 12 – Snowy zoo trip

Snowy zoo trip

This week I bundled the girls up in their snow gear and met a friend and her kids at the zoo. It was a pretty chilly morning (-10C), so we didn’t stay too long, however, the time we did spend there was amazing. There was hardly any other people visiting the zoo (due to the cold, I’m sure) and so we basically had the place to ourselves. All of the animals were out and about too. It was so wonderful. It was really great that we could stand and watch the animals and not worry about moving on to let the next people view them. It definitely set the bar high and it will be hard to visit again when it’s busy!

When we were watching the lions, one of them actually turned his backside to us and attempted to spray us. It was crazy. Luckily, the kids were not standing right there or else they may have been hit. Then the lions decided to nuzzle and lick each other. It was too cute and I only caught the tail end of it on video.

It must have been feeding time for the penguins because they were trying to nibble at the kids through the glass. It was so funny.

The hippos were moving around and even swimming too. Usually they are sleeping whenever we visit, so it was a nice change.

I will definitely be visiting the zoo again this winter because the lack of people is incentive enough. As long as we bundle up in warm clothes, we can handle anything!
