Tidbits of Talk {Volume 18}

Ack…I am late getting this up and missed last week but I have a lot of good excuses  reasons so I will just get on with it since I can’t tell you most of them and you probably don’t care. 

~ Brady is in an AWFUL phase right now that Glenn and I hope goes away quickly. He is throwing everything. I mean everything, things and tantrums.  And everything is a battle. And if you have read this blog for any amount of time you know he is stubborn like his parents. He fixates on things and refuses to let them go. Right now it is brushing his teeth. God love my husband who engages patiently in this battle each night but it is bad enough, big enough and loud enough to make me want to crawl in a hole until he is past it. Up to this point he has been an easy kid so I guess it is about time for him to test us. 

~Cate on the other hand is just a total snuggle bug lately. She doesn’t realize she is doing it, but if you are lucky enough to be the one that gets to pick her up out of her crib after her nap, she will hug you…full on hugging. She will bury her head in your shoulder, pinch your skin and hang on for dear life. I melt each time. But with that being said, she is stuck to me like glue. If I am in the room, she wants me to hold her. If I leave the room she cries. She is fine with Glenn but I feel sorry for my mama who is watching her today because Cate seems to have some attachment issues… 

~I am jealous all of my teacher friends in Bloomington-Normal who are already out of school for summer vacation. I am in until June 8th and have meetings the next week. Sigh…

~ I am on this Craigslist kick. We have been selling some things on there and I just love how simple and easy it is to post items, collect the cash and declutter our house. We have a lot more to put on there and I am not trying to sell our entire house but what is better than having a virtual garage sale? 

~I wish when I got married someone would have told me not to register for stupid shit. Who really needs 8 margarita glasses? Or the Kitchen Aid Mixer I have never used? Or even the three huge colanders that sit on a shelf?  I am seriously kicking myself for getting all of these things instead of a second set of bedding or a really nice steam mop or just nothing at all. 

~ I am looking forward to soaking up some sunshine this weekend and spending time with friends and family.  It’s Memorial Day weekend right? The weatherman is telling me it is going to be 97 on Sunday. That is a tad hot for even me to be honest.  Maybe we should take the kids to the beach?

What are you looking forward to this weekend?
