…When it’s my week to watch Lucas at Saturday morning soccer. Don’t get me wrong, I have a great time with Alex, too…but Alex’s class is a parent/child class, so that means my weeks with him are much more involved. When it’s my week to watch Lucas (Jay and I alternate), that means I get to sit back and relax with my coffee while I watch him play. Ahhhhhh.
…When the kids actually listen and behave the whole time at said Saturday morning soccer, so you FINALLY get to make the trip to stop at get some Cider Belly Doughnuts on the way home. We had tried for two different weeks prior, but meltdowns and ‘tude had forced us to have to skip out and try again the next time. So YAY for good behavior AND doughnuts! *Local friends, you MUST try the German Chocolate and ‘Ol Albany flavors. AMAZING.
…When a new salon/spa opens up just a few minutes from your house and you and mom head out for an hour to go check out their grand opening celebration. My mom and I both know a few of the girls that have joined the new location, so it was good to visit, say hello, and see what types of services they’re going to have to offer (hayy, laser hair removal!). Oh, and hey, free wine tasting and sweet treats certainly don’t hurt either!
…When your mom plays traveling hairdresser and comes for a visit to the house and brings all of her supplies to give the boys some much needed haircuts. And a big shout out to this little dude who sat in the chair by himself for the first time WITHOUT any tears. As he told me, “See mom? Me no cry!” <3
…When you finally get your kiddo to sit down and finish their 100 Days of School project (a few days ahead of schedule, no less!). Thank you, Pinterest.
…When your kiddo has a play date on Sunday morning, and you remember to coordinate your grocery order pickup from Walmart at the same time. You guys, I’m obsessed…the prices are SO good, and they have some really great options/organic selections/etc. Would you be at all interested in seeing what our favorite items are?? P.S. you can use this link to get $10 off your first order!
…Aaaaand make a quick pit stop at HomeGoods before going to pick him up, where you find and fall in love with this gorgeous bedroom set. I was *this close* to getting it (we’ve been looking for one since we moved 3+ years ago!), but I just couldn’t quite commit. If it’s still there in a week, we shall see.
I also had my eye on this mirror for one of our living room walls…I totally should have snagged it because I’m sure it’s already gone now!
…When you pick up your kiddo from his play date and surprise him with a special “Lucas & Mommy” lunch out of his choice.
Actually, his choice would have 100% been McDonalds, so I told him he could pick anywhere BUT there, because we do not need anymore damn happy meal toys in our house. SO, the diner it was, where he housed a short stack of pancakes and I had a surprisingly, REALLY good spinach salad with grilled chicken. WIN!
…When you get to close out the weekend with some of the neighborhood crew down the street to celebrate some winter birthdays!
Hope you guys all had a great weekend, and I’ll catch up with you later this week! <3
