5 on Saturday

Checking in with a quick 5 on Saturday!


I’m currently in Indianapolis at the MOPS convention.  I’ve somehow managed to become the coordinator of one of our local MOPS groups so I left my babies, and David, for 3 days {I know let’s not talk about it} to learn all the things… and stalk Jen Hatmaker.  


Okay let’s talk about it.  Me leaving for multiple days because I’ve never left my girls this long.  I’ve done two 24 hour-ish trips for my sister and BFF’s bachelorette parties and David and I snuck away to Destin for a night last year, but that’s it!  I’m handling it better than I thought, but I miss them.  A lot.  Reese kept saying, “you’re going on an airplane, mommy” and Kennedy just kept with the, “but I don’t want you to leave”.  They’re used to daddy leaving to go to work, but the only time I leave is to go to the store at night. I do feel better that they get to stay home in their beds, with their daddy, and they get to stay on their schedule.  Can’t wait to scoop them up tomorrow morning though!


We got a new rug for the living room.  Upside of having dogs is that they ruin your rugs on the regular so I get to pick new ones.  If they mess this one up I’m coming for them though because I really love it. Special. Farm.

There have been discussions made for a while now about me getting a minivan.  I’m adamantly against this idea.  I’m not really even an SUV person so please don’t put me in a minivan.  I know… all the benefits, and the practicality, and guess what Melissa… you’re a mom, but I am trying to hold onto that tiny shred of person I was pre-babies.  Anyways, it’s now the joke in my family and my mom sent me this this other day.

If I cave and end up in a mommy-mobile I’m doing it.  Take that stick figure families.


Last week Kennedy was all about Peter Pan because he could fly.  They’re convinced now that the reflection on the ceiling in the morning from the glass on my phone is Tinker Bell. No clue I’m wiggling my phone around to move the reflection.  
This week it’s Toy Story and Kennedy is Woody.  She requested chalk drawings of the characters and my have made some hilarious “that’s what she said” comments  about Buzz.
