My Wacky Week…So Far

Since its been an interesting week already I thought I’d share some of the crazy with you. Here are a few of the ridiculous things that have happened this week in chronological order.

1) The Girls Took Their 1st Christmas Pictures…


Our family photographer is infinitely patient thank God! They spent most of the time pulling on each other’s antlers and trying to crawl over one another. Despite me taking pictures of them pretty much every morning, they were not interested in being still. They were having a blast crawling around and trying to eat everything. The Conqueror was growling (one of her favorite sounds to make) almost the entire time. I don’t think we’ll have many conventionally cute pictures but the ones of them fighting seem the most appropriate anyway. I snapped this one while doubled over laughing.

2) I Spent Most Of The Morning Tuesday With A Mentholated Booty Cheek…

Yea, you read that right. I don’t like to wear clothes when I sleep, especially since the girls still wake up to nurse during the night. I also like to have at least one part of my body touching my husband during the night. This usually isn’t a problem but Monday night he went to bed with a mentholated back patch on his lower back. Sometime during the night I put my bare bum right on the back patch. When I woke up I felt a cold draft but  thought nothing of it. It wasn’t until I rolled over onto my back that the icy chill made itself fully known. One square patch on my booty cheek felt like I’d strapped a big ice cube to it. Not only did showering not help, it also made me late for work. Fortunately my boss has a sense of humor and thought it was hilarious.

3) I Dressed The Same Twin Twice…


As you can see, they had already had enough of me this morning before I even got them dressed. I was talking to The Hubs while dressing them and in my state of distraction I tried to put two sweatsuits on The Hun. She was not pleased. I’m pretty impressed that it took me 9 months to do something like that so I’ll chalk that part of this story up as a win.

4) The Mom Van Ate My Wedding Band…

Today while at a stop light I decided to put some lotion on my hands. My rings have alot of tiny areas in them that get gooped up with lotion pretty easily so I always take them off when I moisturize. Usually when I do this I put my rings in the little pocket on my door but for God knows what reason this time I put them on my center console. Before I could even open the lotion the light turned green. As I pulled forward my wedding band slid between two parts of the center console. When I reached to retrieve it, the Mom Van Gobbled it up. I swear it happened in slow motion. I heard the metallic *tink* as it hit the bottom part of the inside of my console. By inside here I mean the ring is literally inside the structure of the vehicle. We are going to have to take the center console apart the retrieve it. To their credit, two of the people on my staff hugged me and another even offered to help me try and crack the console open. My engagement ring is still here on my hand but my finger feels naked without the band.

So there it is folks, and to be honest, there is more to tell but those stories will have to wait for another day.
