All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

It’s Friday, Friday, Gotta Get Down on Friday!

Yes, those are some Justin Bieber lyrics, but hear them in your head being sung by the cast of Glee and now you’re in my head  😉

I need this weekend, and I don’t really know why.  We’ve had a good week, one that has involved some tantrums but Matthew is teething at a record pace right now (he still only has 2 bottom teeth but 4 top front teeth and also a molar up there) and I understand that he’s just not feeling good.  We’ve done some super fun stuff like going to the park (two different parks, even!), swimming, playing with the neighbors, and going for countless wagon rides.

So why do I need a weekend so badly?  I don’t know – I just DO!  Maybe it’s the massage I have scheduled for tomorrow that I’m looking forward to?  Probably (I haven’t had one since the week before Matthew was born)!  Is it the birthday party for our friends’ 3-year old?  Highly unlikely.  😉  Is it my sister’s surprise visit that she scheduled just yesterday?  Yes and no.

Yes and no?  Yes – yes and no.  My sister and I are best friends, of epic proportions.  I can’t wait to see her, but I also know that we are going to stay up way too late talking, and when Sunday rolls around, I’m going to be exhausted.  You take the good with the bad, right?  We’ll have a great time, but man, we’ll be busy!  She’s bringing her three littles (4, almost 2, and 6 months) so this house is going to be rockin with craziness in just a few short hours.  Maybe that has me a little tentative  😉

Whatever it is, I need the weekend!  I am hoping for a nice long nap for all of us Sunday after my sister heads to my parents’ house.  Until then, we’ll live in mass chaos and enjoy as many minutes of it as possible.

What are you up to this weekend?

Happy Friday, everyone!

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!
