The point is, Fridays usually aren't that exciting to me. You'll find me doing the same things on Saturdays and Sundays as I'd do on Mondays or Thursdays, so any day is about the same as any other.
Today, though, I was ready to welcome Friday with open arms :)
My week has been so busy. (And I'm starting to become more aware that when I feel too busy and overwhelmed, I'm not a nice person. Everything - especially the negative things - become much bigger than they really are and I become overwhelmed with annoyance. It's not a nice thing.)
As the second grade room mom at Kaylee's school, it was my job to plan, coordinate, and put on a luncheon for the 45 teachers and staff at her school this week. My week was filled with working within a tight budget, a combination of purchasing, ordering and making all the food, transporting said food to school, getting the lunch all set up....and all with a baby in tow, of course.
The good news is, the luncheon went well, and everyone seemed to enjoy it.
Then today, Kaylee's class was having a Kansas day luncheon, and I volunteered to make chili for the second graders. After being in charge of an entire meal for 45 adults, making chili for 23 kids was a breeze!
As part of their Kansas day celebration, the kids got to wear jeans and a "western" shirt. (They usually wear uniforms.) This is about as western as we get in this house:
Meanwhile, Isabelle made a big discovery today!
And not only that, she can EAT them!
I know some babies may discover the joys of another set of attached play things (ie- toes) sooner than 5 months, but with Isabelle's big tummy in the way, her toes have mostly been out of her reach.
It's really funny though, because for about 3 out of every 5 times she tries to pull her toes to her mouth, she's met with too much resistance (ie- that big tummy) and her hands wind up at her mouth empty handed. lol!
