Some Thoughts On Or Before a 3-day Weekend

This morning I was woken up rudely by a 3-year old who insisted "I poopy, mom.  I STINKY, mom."  Oh, and indeed she was...she had pooped in her Pull-up, taken off her Pull-up to sit on the potty (rather ineffectually), and then tracked poop throughout the house.  What a way to wake up, though it only reinforced my belief that moving next week to a home with tiled instead of carpeted bathrooms is indeed the right decision.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to this 3-day weekend.  First thing on the agenda is to take advantage of some of the Memorial Day sales and try and find some t-shirts for me.  All mine have been stretched out by little hands who like to grab and pull while playing "horsey."  The Gap is having a sale on v-neck pocket tees so I'm gonna to pick up a few, probably.  Is it just me, or are all moms the last ones to get clothes?  Jubee and Sam are super well dressed, always, and Cam is as well dressed as he wants to be, but I always look like a crazy slob.  Haha.

I'm pretty convinced Sammy could be a babyGap model...

...and Jubee can be awfully cute when her hair is under control...

...but pictures of me, well....

Like I said, maybe a new t-shirt will help.  Er.  Maybe.

Anyway, the rest of our weekend is going to be spent packing and cleaning, most likely.  We don't have a grill here, yet, and so we won't be able to celebrate Memorial Day the traditional way, but I'm reasonably sure we'll have a good time anyway.

P.S. I know those are older pictures of the kids.  I have newer ones to prove that what I say is still valid:

  1. I love their eyes, Carly! They both are so bright and vivid, especially Jubilees!
    I totally know what you mean on the clothes. 2 weeks ago I went to the thrift store. I walked straight back to the toddlers area and got 5 shirts and 4 pairs of pants for Monster. Then went to the boys and got 6 shirts and 3 pairs of paints for Monkey. Then to mens and got 2 pairs of pants for the hubby, and was in line before I realized, I didn't even look at clothing for myself!
