It is only ONE hour!

12 Mar

I love this time of year for the addition of more daylight to the evening but I don’t love it for what it does to the sleeping habits of one almost three year old. As I was laying down with her at 8:45 pm last night, I was cursing the time change. Her eyes were as big as saucers and she was busily chatting away. In my head, I was screaming at daylights saving, ‘it is only ONE hour!’ Seriously, how can one little hour change up our bedtime routine for the next few weeks! For someone who can’t even tell time, she is greatly impacted by the change up.

She finally did go to sleep but I know we have a few days until we are all adjusted. Of course, this morning, she did not want to get out of bed. I know she will appreciate the extended daylight ad the ability to spend more time at the park in the evening.

Besides the time change, we had a weekend filled with errands. We have been on the hunt for a replacement ceiling fan for our loft and it is turning into a more expensive item that we thought. The downside to having cathedral ceilings is that items like this are not easily installed and since Kerry’s back has enough problems, we will be hiring someone to replace it. Big ceiling fan + high ceilings + custom switch + electrician= better looking ceiling fan at way more than we wanted to spend 🙂 But the current one is a lovely combination of brass and wicker that should have been replaced years ago. Now, we see why the previous owners probably did not replace it. As we start to prepare to sell our house, we debated that it did not prevent us from buying the house (the ugly monstrosity above the loft) but both of us feel that it needs to go. Miss H had fun visiting the ‘fan stores.’

Other house items that need to be crossed off the list include, new window covering and our friendly painter is coming to repair some cracks and paint. Now, if we could just decide where we should move- we would be on the right track 🙂

In other news, we finally found a green tutu. Miss H has been asking for one for weeks and while I was running errands yesterday, I spotted one. Not the traditional colors for a tutu but she was so happy to see I had found one. And, she made a lovely combination of orange, green and yellow yesterday.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Another weekend of the icks….

5 Mar

We had a fun day on Saturday, but Kerry came down with the icks on Sunday. Hadley and I felt very bad for him and she was very concerned that he was going to ‘burp.’ No burping but a general case of the ickiness. To give him some quiet, Miss H and I went shoe shopping, made a trip to Target and the grocery store. Miss H is now the proud owner of new tennis shoes, a pair of Hello Kitty mary janes and some new princess flip flops. I think she tried on every shoe in the store. She is very particular about her clothing and the way it feels. It was pretty funny to watch her check herself out in the mirrors and make a lap around the store to determine if they comfortable. Many shoes were deemed ‘too heavy.’ Is the shoe thing genetic in girls? Fancy, huh?

On Saturday, we went out to lunch with Mom. Miss H announced to the whole restaurant that she used the potty. And, let everyone know that the towels ‘come out like magic’ (aka- automatic paper towel machine). It is moments like this that I appreciate living in a large metropolitan area because no one knew who we were in that restaurant. Also, I could tell who the parents were just by the looks and giggles.

Miss H has been entertaining us with her musical abilities. I somewhat regret buying these, especially when she plays three at a time. Kerry definitely did not appreciate it when he did not feel well.

I think my biggest accomplishment last week was getting her 3rd birthday invitations in the mail! If everyone is able to come, we are going to have 17 kids (plus their parents) at the pizza party! Also, Leigh is helping with gift bags and stickers. It should be a fun time and Miss H is going to be thrilled.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
