mcdonalds for breakfast, a brownie for snack.

This morning when my alarm went off at 7:15 am I hit dismiss instead of snooze. I've been doing that a lot the past 2 weeks. I rolled over and went back to sleep. When I woke up I felt like I had been asleep forever. It was only 7:37. I laid in bed, checked facebook and instagram. I waited until 8:10 before I even moved. That's when Kayla finally woke up. It was 8:25 when she asked what was for breakfast...and that's when I realized the only thing we have for breakfast that she will eat is pancakes and not the frozen kind either. And I don't have enough time to make them. So I tell her to hurry and get shoes and socks I'm getting her McDonald's. I throw a brownie in her book bag for snack. Yeah, you read that right...a brownie. And I realize we didn't do last night's homework because I haven't been checking her folder. I grab her clipboard and a pencil and we run out the door...in the pouring rain.

For the record this whole school year she hasn't missed a day. (Well, one when she got a tooth pulled but that was it!) We haven't missed the bus...not even once. And today, even though I dropped her off at school, we could've made the bus but she wouldn't have had time to eat. I thought eating was more important than catching the bus.

I'm so ready for next Friday when school will be out. Ready for the late nights, the sleeping-in, the not having to wake Kyleigh and Kinsley up Monday through Friday. (Can you believe even after 9 months of school I still have to wake them up every. single. day??) I'm done with checking folders and making healthy snacks. I'm ready for the pool and changing outfits 3 times a day. Not being on a schedule....and then 2 weeks after all of that I'll be ready for school to start again. The cycle never ends...

Now onto some photos from our life lately.

Life Lately in Photos.

Lately, when I've seen newborn pictures of someone else's sweet little one I cry. Seriously. I try to hold it in but I can't. Seeing those sweet babies reminds me of how quickly it's gone by with Kinsley. This is the fastest one of my babies has ever grown up. I'm completely head over heels for her. I want to keep her little. Forever. No lie. If I could I would without a doubt.

I know. You all are tired of hearing the same ole' thing from me. But as the days go by and she gets closer and closer to a year old the more sad I get. Because there will never be another sweet newborn in my house. I will never smell that sweet newborn smell of one of my own babies. Soon there will be no need for dreft, although I think I may use it longer than I need to. Because I worship that smell. There will be no smelling a tiny baby after a bath and pressing my nose to the top of their little head. And breathing it all in. And I'll miss those things. Dearly. But I also know that with toddler-hood comes other things that I love. Hearing a chubby little girl saying I love you. Or a tall, skinny five year old being proud that she made you something. Watching her face light up as you tell her how much you love it. And don't get me wrong, I love those things just as much as I love a newborn's tiny feet...but I know I still have plenty of years ahead of me of that. I'm just not ready to let go of all things baby. Luckily, I still have a few more months...

Now onto my life lately in photos.












And some instagram...















Happy Wednesday Friends!
