Good Thursday to you! I really do have lots of real posts to write about things like school and projects and how homeschooled kids really are “normal.” But it’s just not coming to me. But lucky for you, all these random posts ARE!
I feel like I’m wearing about 18 hats right now: teacher, pregnant lady, cook, cleaner, organizer, scheduler, birthday planner, technological person…lots. But it’s all good and I’m glad for it all.
Yesterday was busy as well as every other day of a stay-at-home-mom….
…we managed to snap a few pics of belly rubs. They are so funny.
“What is the baby doing now?”
“What is the baby doing now?”
Jack and I ran a few quick errands to finish up Sophie’s bday shopping. I kind of bit off a lot with one of the gifts I’m giving her. More on that later.
Anyway, Jack is just a fun guy. He’s so chill. He asks the most random questions. Sometimes I wonder if we’re on the same planet. But I love him…my little space cadet.
We found this at Target…
…and unpacked my car and then my house looked like this…

I had about 2 hours before we had to get to church, so I got busy cleaning up the Skittles, crusty mac and cheese, and ladybug habitat off my kitchen counters.
Also, couponing. It’s going well….here’s some of my couponing scores from this week:
Get the 6 Secrets to a Simpler Mom Life
The Nivea Men’s lotion was my favorite score…regularly $5.54 at Target, I got it for $1.54. Yeah!
Other stuff: Natural bliss creamer: regularly $2.48, I got it for $1.50
Minute Maid juice boxes: regularly $4.18, I got them for $2.48 each
Simply Cranberry juice: regularly $4.25, I got it for $2.50
I’m pretty happy about that.
It’s Sophia’s birthday next week. We are going to the zoo. We checked the zoo’s website last night to make sure it was open and all that and we learned there’s a brand new baby giraffe!! You could watch the video of it being born, so of course my baby-crazed daughter said YES YES YES!! So we did…the boys were not present for this. Jarrod gagged, I peed my pants laughing at Jarrod and Sophie teared up and said, “ohhhhhhhh my gosh!!!!!!!!!!!”
She loved every bit.
And then she was disappointed when I told her she would be with a babysitter when our baby came out.
“BUT I WANTED TO SEE IT COME OUT!!!!”
You’ll be happy to know that by the time we left to church, my kitchen looked more like this….
…yes, that’s Honeycomb cereal in paper bowls for dinner.
Bon Appetit, kids!!
And no more ladybugs in the kitchen.
Jarrod’s car threw a hissy fit yesterday, so a lovely gentleman had to come and tow it to the shop. So I had to go pick him up.
He doesn’t have ladybugs on his desk…..
I propped my feet up and made my list of things to take to the hospital while I waited for him to finish up. What do I need that I’m forgetting??? Help a mama out…
Ok, independent work time has turned into a mockery…I better go address this.
Happy Thursday, friends!
