The Post-it Notes: Six Candles

It’s 8:27am. Jace is still in bed and Brynlee was off to school at 7:45 this morning. Since then I’ve been sitting on the couch trying to muster enough energy to get myself into the shower. Showering is such a hassle.

I’m kidding.

{Kind of.}

Jami and the kids came down yesterday and it made me yearn for summer days even more than I have been lately. The kids devoured an undisclosed amount of popsicles while spending the afternoon running amuck in the backyard. It has me dreaming of all the family get-togethers that the warmer days will bring. Cousins are so rad.

Today we’re staying home. I’m hoping to get some deep cleaning done and to cross off a few things on my ignored to-d0 list: writing some thank you notes, typing up PTA minutes, laundry and things and stuff. I have high hopes of a super productive day, but first, I’m procrastinating with a blog post. And then, fingers crossed, I’m hoping I’ve the energy to shower.

Anyways, a March post-it:
We wrapped up March with Brynlee’s 6th Birthday. I can’t believe she’s six! I think I say this every year, but truly, time goes so fast.

We started the day with our traditional birthday breakfast of doughnuts decorated with sprinkles and candles and then after begging me to let her open a present or two she was off to school.

She was a bit disappointed that her birthday had to be shared with a school day and to make up for it she requested that Spencer, Jace and I bring her McDonalds for lunch. And just for the record, lunch with a table full of kindergarteners is, well, disgusting. But I held it together and we had a grand old time despite the disgust of it all. And Brynlee and her classmates were so excited that Spencer stayed for recess. My husband is quite popular. Don’t believe me, ask any kid 10 or under. They think he’s hilarious!

McDonalds Birthday lunch at the Elementary School cafeteria.
Brynlee decided that instead of a friend birthday party this year she wanted to stay in a hotel with a swimming pool. Um, heck yeah! So much easier and more relaxing than a birthday party. So right when she got home from school we loaded up and headed out.

Pictures to come in my very last of the March post-it note series. But for now I’m off to the shower.

My toothless six year old.

showering is such a hassle, and i'm not kidding. not even kind of. okay i love that your husband stayed to play with the kids. my grandpa used to come on field trips with us and he would always stay after and come to lunch/recess. yeah that old guy was pro at kick ball. best grandpa ever. sidenote: on one of those field trips we turned into evil little kids and forced grandpa into trying a sour war head without warning him what he was about to put into his mouth. poor guy.

Love that birthday plan. I totally agree. Showering is waaaaaay a hassle. Though I neglected it Saturday and come Sunday morning post shower I realized the value.
