what we’ve been up to

By Moriah on February 29th, 2012

It’s completely frustrating to feel totally wiped out and have your 2-year-old running the house. Andy had a cold last week and then I got it. Easy things like nursing the baby take a hefty toll. And it’s hard to corral a bunch of rowdy kids without a voice. I mean really.

They had a winter break from school last week, Wednesday thru Sunday. It was SO nice. I had an appointment for our van to be fixed while we wouldn’t need it for carpool. Found out late Friday they hadn’t had a chance to fix it so was back in the shop Monday. I hate feeling stranded. (Although…hyped up on cold meds – I shouldn’t have been driving anyway.)

We did several things over the break, set up Ethan’s new bed (thanks Mom!),

taught Madeline how to use a cookbook and bake banana bread,

She’s done it three times now, the last being Sunday afternoon WHILE I WAS TAKING A NAP. I woke up to find she’d ALREADY made the batter (we had a little conversation about asking first and cleaning up the mess when you’re finished). It turned out fine except I did bite down on one lump of baking soda.

We played a lot outside, loving the warmer days. We sure got off EASY this winter. I’m sure it’s because I was prepared and had snow gear for everyone. ;)

And then we been working with Ethan and his sitting up skillz…

This week was rough getting back into the swing of homework and having a mama sick. Andy generally takes Wednesdays off so I was able to get away today for a quiet break, which is a really really REALLY good thing!

    As always, it’s fun to catch up on your blog. You’re doing great, by the way. The kids, the house, the whole darn thing. I was just telling a friend who lives near you about your kids’ cute clothes the other day. They are too much!

    I can’t believe you’re at the baking stage! I can’t wait until B can whip up a pan of brownies while I “supervise.” :) Think next year is too early to start her?
