Back to routine

So the last few days I have had my parents here visiting from Kansas. It was so nice and relaxing. I love sitting and talking to my mom about absolutely nothing in particular. I think the kids enjoyed seeing them as well. Well except for Mr. Taylor, I think he did, he just played bashful every morning with Nana and Papa. It was quite funny. Both of my kids got hair cuts, even “Tater Tot!” His 3rd hair cut already and he is only 15 months old. I had Nana cut his hair shorter than last time since it has been so hot out. He has lost his curls!!

My little, curly headed little boy all of a sudden looks all grown up!  What happened?!?!  We will have to let it grow back out some.  I love his curls!  I’m sure he is much cooler though!

So now that my house guests are gone (and safely made it back home), I have been cleaning, doing laundry and grocery shopping all day.  You know the usual mommy/housewife duties.  Tater Tot was also being a handful today.  I’m not quite sure what got into him, if he was feeling spunky with his new ‘do or what, but he was ALL over the place and making noise, and being destructive!  Oh my goodness!  He went to bed about 45 minutes early because he got to the point where he was laying on the ground crying and kicking one foot when he couldn’t stay outside any longer.  I was drenched in sweat from a run and he wanted to stay outside and play in the 90+ degree heat and high humidity.  No thanks!  Daddy and Sissy did take him on a walk and ride the little 4 wheeler with him though.  My daughter was even so kind to surprise me tonight by not only emptying the dishwasher as asked, but LOADING it up too!  (WITHOUT being asked I might add!!)  I had to close my eyes and walk into the kitchen so she could surprise me.  I think she picked up on Mommy getting frustrated with Tater Tot banging on every little thing imaginable with wooden eggs and clothes hangers!  I would definitely say my 3 mile run tonight was MUCH needed despite the high heat/humidity.  After Tater Tot got put down to bed for the night, the 3 of us went and enjoyed a nice swim.  Well my husband and daughter did, I got in, found it colder than yesterday from having gotten a lot of rain so sat out and watched them play “King Kong.”  Quite entertaining I must say!

Alright off to go finish the last of the laundry and get our bed all freshly made!
