Snow in October? She loves it! ❄️ Me however, I'm drinking coffee like it's my job and considering kidnapping myself to a Caribbean island somewhere 🤣 Save me? 🙋🏻♀️
It was 75 yesterday. I was in flip flops and a long flowy skirt. 😩😩😩
Clearly my son isn't having any fun at the Fun Run at school today. 🤣 Who wouldn't have a blast running and dancing to music, even getting sprayed by water guns by the gym and music teachers! Hard to believe a good front is coming through and bringing SNOW tomorrow?! 😩50 degree drop in temps between today and tomorrow.. what?! 👀
Happy October 1st! 🎃🍂🍁Yesterday on the last day of September, it was sunny, 80 degrees, and BEAUTIFUL!! ☀️ Today, on this first day of October, it's freaking 59 degrees and cloudy! 😩☁️🤦🏻♀️ I could NOT get warm, so I had to fire up this badboy already!🔥😳😬Can we not with the drastic weather changes and cold, pretty please? Mother Nature, help a sister out!🥶
Tonight's sunset was a gorgeous one, but marred by the smoke from the Decker Fire near Salida, Colorado. It makes my heart hurt to see our Earth burning! 😩 Will you send positive thoughts and vibes out this way towards in hopes they'll get it extinguished sooner rather than later? ✨ It's particularly hard for them to get it anywhere near under control here with the high winds we've been experiencing the past couple days that continue until tomorrow.
Today, this bright and brilliant kiddo turns 11! 🎂 The big 1-1! 🎈 And today, he gets an extra gift.. he gets to give and show kindness to others for his JOI Club's Kindness Campaign at school. 💓 We got to make kindness posters last night that he had on display as all the school children filed into school this morning. He also wore a dress shirt and tie while she wore a tutu. 👔 The club's quote (which brought on the dress code) for today is Remember, you can never be TUTU kind when you’re all TIED up in joy! And OH MAN is he ever filled with joy today, my not so little Baby Dude's eleventh birthday! 🎉 Me, however - I'm fricken hysterical! 😭😭😭 It hit me like a truck as soon as I left them this morning that this is his *last birthday* in elementary school. 🎒 The last birthday it'll get called over the announcements as they say the pledge. 🗣 The last birthday he'll get a celebratory birthday treat from the principal. 🍬 It might even be the last time he gets to bring treats to school to give to classmates for his birthday, and to be sung to, etc. 🧁 And it's these lasts that no one ever forewarns you of as a parent, the ones that have been stabbing at my heart as of late. Been holed up with my kids spending quality time with them in every free moment I can lately ... because I KNOW that this age, these moments, this stage... it isn't going to be like this forever, you know? 😔 Hug your kiddos close tonight. Eat some cake just because.. it'll be fun!✨ Celebrate for no reason because it's stuff like that they'll remember fondly when they are older. We will join you tonight in eating cake and celebrating only we'll sing happy birthday to my dude and I will try not to cry. Eleven! The months and years are peeling back from the calendar entirely too quickly for this mama's heart to take. ❤️
