OK, so I am never ever EVER allowed to cut Adriens hair again. EVER. PERIOD. I may or may not have "trimmed" it a little short around the ears, then gotthe brillant idea to try to even it out with scissors. I was doing really well trimming it on top but felt the back had too much hair and if I took the clippers with a guard on them, I could get it done faster. Long story short, said clippers are now inthe garbage and I have one short haired child. Pictures to folow along with a letter of apology to my son with a signed affadavit that I will never ever cut his hair again and we will always go to Mag.ic C.uts or something of the sort. So please, if you see my son in the next few days, don't make fun of him, it's not his fault!


My blog

I read tons and tons of blogs, they are funny, witty and insightful......I write this blog because I want to have a written record for my baby and I want to share his growth with family and friends that don't get to see him often. My mind comes up with witty entries, funny stories that never make it to the blog, either because I have forgotten what I was going to say or my hands can't type as fast as my brain thinks. That being said, this summer has been something, work has been challenging this summer, trying to get into my new role, get things settled into my new office, getting to know everything that I'm responsible. I come home tired.....and then I feel guilty because I need a half hour to unwind.....before I get dinner ready....I just need quiet time, I feel selfish sometimes for that.....I love spending time with my family....(see, just got distracted and TOTALLY forgot what I was going to write!) doing things with my husband and kid.....but I feel like all I ever do is clean, cook and grocery shop....I know I have been on two vacations this summer, but I just need time with my family.....just the three of us. I come home and the house is a disaster...dishes in the sink, toys everywhere, laundry hampers bursting over and all I want to do is play with my kid.....but I don't want him to live in a disorganized house....and I know that he may not remember what the house looked like growing up but how much time I spent with him, teaching him, playing with him, loving him......I think this all comes because another year has ended for me and a new age bracket is starting....I will no longer be able to check the 31-35 box any more.....This entry is probably pointless and doesn't make sense, but that's me....scattered with so much to say!


We're back!

Adrien and I had a fabulous time away! We left Wednesday night and due to weather, were delayed in Baltimore for 2 hours.....my kid....SUPERSTAR! He walked from window to window watching the planes....enthralled...at one window, two pilots waved at him, he was so excited. Our flight came in after 11:00pm and guess who was still awake AND walking through the airport....That's right....my kid! lol....And when he saw Grandma.....he went RUNNING for her......hugged and kissed her!

He slept in Thursday morning and awoke asking for Grandma! So he went to wake her as his cousins and aunt arrived.....the kids played until we went down to the pool for a swim....it was so HOT out....like 101! OMG it was hot and so was the pool. After swimming, it was lunch and nap time.....My youngest brother was there, my couin, G arrived Thursday afternoon and my cousin, A was arriving that evening (it would be the first time we ever met her and Adrien fell in ♥)
Friday morning, Adrien woke up to this

His uncle and two cousins sleeping in Grandma's family room.....he watched them for 5 minutes before he started yelling at them to wake up!
Friday night we headed back to Euro Grill were about 40 friends and family gathered for dinner.....it was amazing, as always, to eat great food, have fabulous conversation and watch the kids play so wonderfully!

For Evan and Maddox's birthday and Christmas presents, my siblings and I contributed to buying them drums.......Adrien is a natural!

We were there to celebrate Evan's birthday and play on the slip and slide......we celebrated and played hard.....so hard infact, I couldn't move the next day and EVERYTHING hurt!

On Sunday, as I was checking in for my flight the next day, we came to realize that no one booked Adrien a return trip....LOL.....SERIOUSLY! So we ended up on an early flight that was delayed over an hour and our connector had to be held for us.....I sat with a little guy that only wanted to talk about how the wings have engines....I think he might be a pilot.....it was a fabulous mini-vacation that left me refreshed and re-energized!


And we're off

AGAIN!!!!! This has been the year of travel.....Adrien and I are heading back to Nashville for a couple of days....totally last minute and totally needed. I've had some stress at work, with it "right sizing" Fortunately, I was safe but it has left the team on edge, with rumours and speculation flying....so I'm heading to my mom's and sister's where I go when I need to regroup, get away and re-energize.....and I'm lucky enough to have a husband who recognizes the signs and suggests I go! So the boy and I are going for about 5 days.....
Our summer has been full.....full of family, full of friends, full of new babies (Adrien has a new first cousin and second cousin, both born in July), full of pools, full of parks, full of good food, full of laughter and full of love.....
Adrien with cousin Rose.....baby girl number 4 for my brother and his wife
Baking with mommy, though more interested in licking the bowl
With cousin Jameson, first child of mommy's cousin and her husband
Adrien and his cousins walking....

At the park
watching TV....such a boy!
