Does anyone else have a teenager?? It’s wonderful and exhausting all at the same time.. but it’s a different type of exhausting than being a parent of a toddler. But if there is one thing that drives me crazy the most, it’s this.. this is all I see, all day, everyday.. the top of his head, because his face is buried in his phone all day everyday and then when I tell him to put it away for the ONE BILLIONTH time that day.. I get this attitude!!
I missed a couple days of photos. Yesterday was my father in law’s 70th birthday. My mother in law, sister and law, and I were planning him a surprise party. We had it all planned out and then a wrench was thrown into our plans when he threw his back out last week. We weren’t sure if we were going to be able to get him out of the house all day to set up as planned, so we had a last minute change of venue to our house. I have three kids, so all of my energy at the end of last week was put into getting our house ready to host. Fortunately everything got done and the party went off without a hitch, I think he was even surprised!
I’m in lots of mommy groups online, and one consistent theme is how people hate their in laws. I seriously can’t even imagine! My in laws are so amazing, hearing the horror stories really makes me appreciate the fact that I won the in law jackpot!!
Well, Winter break is officially over and it’s back to the grind. Yesterday and today were the first days back to school for my oldest and middle respectively. Gianna was so sad to see them BOTH go this morning, she wants to be a big girl and go to school so bad!! I love having all the kids home on break, but I also love the fact that they love school so much! What I don’t love, is the sound of that alarm in the morning!! Ugh!!
