I'm just going to jump in to the randomness that is this post...
*Has anyone else seen commercials for that diet powder that your sprinkle on your food and apparently lose weight? Please tell me no one is dumb enough to actually buy this. No one can honestly think that sprinkling some magic diet powder on your greasy cheeseburger or french fries is going to make you lose weight. If it was that simple everyone would be super skinny and live at the cupcake shop. Get real!
*Speaking of weight. Let's just say I managed to lose all of my baby weigh and then GAIN IT BACK. I haven't gained all of it back but come on! I am so over this extra weight and am officially on a mission to get back in shape! I've also registered for a 5K in September (more details on that tomorrow) so this beast was delivered to our house Tuesday! And before anyone attempts to give me
The kids approved of their new wheels! Will feel asleep within minutes of starting our walk.
*Do you see how huge Will is? Chunker is 13.9 pounds!
*Yesterday was one of those days where I wanted to simultaneously cry and pour a glass of wine. Kate was in total destruction mode. Will was fussy and wouldn't nap more than 30 minutes. Kate decided her face made a beautiful canvas for her markers. You know, one of those days.
Right when I was at my breaking point, Kate asked to hold Will. Insert heart explosion. Moments like this make all of the hard, stressful moments disappear.
*The picture above shows, yet again, how huge Will is! Kate only weighs 9 pounds more than him! They will be the same size in no time!
*Yes Kate wore not one, but two swim suits all day yesterday. She even went out in public wearing them. That's a battle I just didn't have the energy to fight.
*If you follow me on twitter you already know that I've been participating in "no spend June". I've failed in some areas (hello $500 stroller I bought this week) but succeeded in other areas (haven't bought a single article of clothing for the kids). I've learned a lot this month about living in excess and plan to post about it in the next week or so!
*It is HOT this summer. We hit 108 (actual temperature not heat index) this week. I love city life but would really love the convenience of the suburbs and a neighborhood pool/ splash pad right about now!
*I am a reading machine thanks to the summer reading challenge! I've officially finished 7 books totaling 2,173 pages!
