Loving the Leisurely

The weekends are so blissful after a long week of having places to go. I wish the girls didn’t love their classes so much, I’d love to skip them! haha

Today and yesterday I got up before the kids and cleaned for an hour. It’s amazing being in a quiet house with the early morning sun coming in the window and folding laundry alone with my thoughts. Or washing dishes and only hearing the sound of the running water. It’s almost therapeutic.

We didn’t do a dang thing today (besides me cleaning). We’ve sat around together, we’ve played outside, we’ve eaten meals of course, we’ve read… it’s been amazingly refreshing.

I know it’s silly for me, as the mother, to say so, but I have to… Payson is the best looking little boy in the world!

This kid and his love of character clothing. And me being completely wrapped around his finger and unable to resist such cute requests. We were in Target and he spotted this sweater and very sweetly pleaded with me, “Football monkey, mommy? Pleeeease?” And when I picked it up and asked, “This one?” He jumped up with a huge smile and bright eyes and said, “Yes!!” And though he has a sweater and I’ve been trying to buy the bare minimum amount of clothing I can I found myself putting it into the cart.

It has been unseasonably chilly lately and he does get his one and only sweater filthy dirty and I have to wash it too often. So it’s all good.

Redundantly- I adore this baby.

I would say I couldn’t possibly love her more but I swear I love her more right now than an hour ago.

Sometimes she helps me do laundry. I’ve been washing a load every single day to keep up. And I don’t even cloth diaper her yet!

She didn’t like laying on the clothes much and was getting super tired so I put her in the swing.

Before doing some more cleaning while Ember slept I went outside to see what the older kids were up to.
Brooklyn had found a cricket that she was playing with and wanted a picture of.

She’d named him “Crickey.”
She didn’t want to hold it because, “Ew no, it feels too weird!” so she got it on her rubber ducky instead. And you can’t tell but the cricket was facing the camera and totally looked like he was posing. ha

I looked over at Sierra who was doing this:

This smile is because I told her it was amazing that she could do that and she felt proud. lol

  • Oh I love Sierra expressions! She is soooo sweet! Ember is definitely your little girl. She and Payson look like your side I think. It is so fun to see which kids take your genes. Brooklyn is turning into a beautiful girl. I bet you are so proud of her!
