All the Sun For You

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



Matthew had a rough nap today, as evidenced by his hair when he woke up.  😉  Seriously, this boy’s hair lays so perfect most of the time, and he has NEVER had “bedhead.”  I have expected him to have some difficult hair every once in a while given the fact that we keep his hair pretty short and trimmed, and he has a LOT of it.  Matthew’s hair is THICK.

I thought he looked so cute with his “bedhead” today, that I didn’t even try to fix it.  He looked like a bona-fide little boy, rather than a toddler.  A little surreal, but sweet!  We took him out to the mall and to dinner with his sloppy hairdo, and I loved it!  I finally took a photo at dinner because it was still standing on end.  HA!


I paid for this photo with his screams for me to give him my phone once he saw it out. I did not relent! Thirty seconds later, Matthew did relent. Score one for the tough mama!

One of these days, I’ll get around to writing a real post – you know – one with substance?  We’ve had a rough week that started out with a poor decision on my part to take Matthew to his favorite lunch spot (Chipo.tle) and get him mild salsa with peppers, along with his favorite guac in the whole wide world.  I will never get him that salsa again – the guac is fine and he can handle that, but that alone.  That stupid salsa set him, and his naps, back for two damned days.  We were both crying in the afternoon after a short, 45 minute nap.  The next day was not much better – a 1.5 hour nap and tears as he woke up again.  Geesh!  I’m happy to report that yesterday was blessed with a BEAUTIFUL 2.6 hour nap and the last two nights, he’s slept well over 11 hours.  My sanity has returned.

Now, if we could just get him to eat something besides fruit, eggs, and string cheese (and Chipot.le, of course) – life would be back to “normal!”

Lunch with Daddy - look at that happiness with his Chipot.le pork, salsa, and guac.  We ALL paid for this lunch over and over again.  Poor kid!

Mom trying to salvage a nap.  This was heaven, for about 2 minutes at a time before he would scream out in tummy pain.  Stupid Chipo.tle salsa!

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!

  1. Love the bedhead! Poor baby – mean salsa!

  2. Love the bed head! What a cutie!

    Oh no, the salsa!! 😦 What a shame. I wonder if I need to be careful with Alidia and salsa? I never even thought of this! :/ Ugg, glad he is back to normal now though.

  3. OH the bed head….so freaking adorable….Raegan has terrible bed head and most of the time I don’t do anything with it either…I’m trying to set a new trend!

  4. Love the spikey hair!! He is such a sweet boy!

    I’m really sorry that it’s been a rough week! I had no idea!! Probably from me just blabbing on about myself all the time. I hope that he’s doing much better now though!!

  5. Bedhead just adds to the cuteness, why not?! Sorry to hear about the salsa effects:[ I like to see H enjoying new foods but I’m always crossing my fingers that it will “like him” too!

  6. Love that you took him out with his hair like that! I’ve given up on doing Chloe’s hair most days. It always looks like she has bedhead. That sucks about the food mishap! I was so excited to try a new hamburger place, one known for it’s greasy burgers, but as I was eating it I knew it was a mistake and boy was it. Always so disappointing when it turns out that way.

    • Nothing worse than a bad food choice. HA! At least we get to make them for ourselves, versus our poor kids who have no say 😉

      I think Chloe’s hair always looks GREAT!
