It’s November 15th and I am officially half way through NaBloPoMo! Whoot. I am having fun doing it so far. I think it may be because I am writing about daily life as opposed to deep philosophical topics or crazy things like that. I don’t need to do that and life is easy to ramble on about. I realize the topics that most often come up are about my kids, but let’s face it, my kids are my life.
I feel like my blogging mojo is back a little bit too! I feel like I’ll want to continue blogging on a somewhat regular basis after November is over. Let’s hope I can keep up with that promise. Even if it’s a minimal amount of words and a few pictures, I think that’s good enough. I don’t need to write a novel. Plus, my visitor count is practically non-existent, so it’s really just me I am writing for anyway.
Yay, so here’s to the last half of the month and my NaBloPoMo adventure 😀 And just for the heck of it, here are pictures I took of my babies today!
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.
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!
