Life Over Here

*We are prepping for back to school. I did almost all of my shopping online this year! It was great to just be able to order all of Dom's clothes and have them shipped. No crowds. No long day.

*We are going to pick up his backpack and lunch bag this week at Dick's Sporting Goods. Then head over to Target to get all of his new pencils, pens, paper etc.

*Dom is VERY excited to go back to school. He has his outfit already picked out and hanging in his closet out front for all to see.

*Charlie is going through something. She keeps waking up screaming at night. Half the time she has to go potty, the other half she is just crying. She is doing it multiple times a night. I am T-I-R-E-D!

*Logan is having frequent growing pains. Poor little buddy keeps complaining about his legs, especially his knees.

*Speaking of knees, Charlie's are as bruised and scratched up as the boys are. This girl can keep up for sure!

*Our night at the hotel for Gary's birthday was a complete bust for me. I slept very little. Not enough pillows and an uncomfy bed does not bode well for sleep. At least for me. Gary on the other hand, was asleep by 9:30. Next time G and I want to catch up on sleep as our birthday gift, we will get a hotel for the kids and stay home to sleep.


  1. Ooooh I remember my own growing painful! Poor Log! Lily is bruised up like Charlie too! I'm doing Andrew's shopping online too! Just waiting for him to get home :)

  2. Bailey has gotten 2 goose eggs on her noggin, skinned up knees on both sides, a split lip (she put her teeth through it), and a giant bruise on her back from falling out of the shower in the last 3 days. Keeping up with big brother is tough work! I hope Charlie gets past whatever it is that's bothering her at night. Lack of sleep is horrible!

  3. Hahaha that sounds like the typical night away as parents of young children lol
    Sorry to hear it wasn't great, but hey, your idea for next time is!!
    Good luck to Dom for school starting back :)
