Now that Phoenyx can walk a little, he thinks he has permission to do as he pleases….from breaking into my makeup to picking out a few things from the pantry, this little man believes the house is HIS and we are his servants.
Take care of me.
Fetch my 7 pacis that I tossed from the crib at 2am but now desperately want or I will NOT sleep….
Walking is a new fun adventure for P and one big fat headache for mom.
Speaking of P, he is growing like a weed.
At an impromptu Dr. meeting the other week, he weighed in at a whopping 25 pounds. Let’s not forget all he eats is fruits and vegis….and I may be guilty of slipping him a cookie or two, but he is just SOLID. And he is as long as he is everything else. He has to wear size 24 month one pieces or they won’t snap. I am constantly looking for clothes on sale. I cannot believe I am buying 24 months for my 10 month old. Actually I take that back. Charlotte was 24 months at a year old. What is it with my monster sized kids??!?!?!?
Speaking of new clothes, I got this email last week of this site called Wittlebee and you put the clothes on a subscription basis and have a personal shopper tend to you. Like you’re rich but it doesnt cost that much. It’s a cool idea because it seems every time I go to pull something out of the drawer I am finding it is int he wrong size. Taking shopping off my list is one more thing that clears up time to…oh….clean this insane house. The people over at Wittlebee let me test out how it works (total disclosure: this was a free sample). I filled out what I thought Little P’s style was, his sizes, and sent it off….about 4 days later he got a box of clothes that were so cute.
You tell me, did they get it right?
Each box comes with 6 items based on your survey and you can talk to a personal stylist as part of it if you need to get really specific with sizes. At only $39.99 a box, that’s less than $7 for each item!! Not bad for avoiding the meltdown and looking for sizes all over a store. It’s totally worth the click over to check out ——>
Let’s see…what else is going on around here.
On fathers day I lost my computer. Like kaput. Virus city. Its now under my desk collecting a pile of dust and cat fur on it. I have got to get it into a shop to see if it can be salvaged. The chick over at Best Buys Geek Squad pretty much told me it would cost me more to sign up for their Geek Squad stuff than to buy a new computer. Figure that out. I had to have one, so I bought a new one. It totally ruined my fathers day. Even though I am the mother.
Oh, and right now I am decorating.
I keep looking around and it feels like I live in someones dorm room in my house. You know how it is…a collection of non matching bed sets, curtains, random furniture, and then you throw up a picture on the wall to “personalize” it. That was my long way of saying…I really need to get focused around here. Last month I manged to sucker my spouse into repainting the bedroom and bathroom. Yesterday I finally went and got some matching bedding. I realize why people don’t do it. Its just flat out expensive. You change one thing and everything needs to change.
I mean….. do I actually live in this room? YIKES.
Just to remind you, my son lives here…..
and I sleep in this….
I am not ready to do a whole reveal yet, but here is the direction I am going:
Last, but not least, we bought a new car! We shopped and shopped and shopped and shopped some more. We finally settled on this Hyundai Sonata. Its turbo, limited edition, all the bells and whistles. My husband actually wanted a Kia Optima, but we could not find the color we wanted and the sense of urgency at the dealerships to help us was about a zero.
Even though we were preapproved and ready to buy in a week.
Oh well. Kias loss.
So now that I have caught you all up…..what is going on your world?
