Mom, come with me!

Mom, watch me jump in the trampoline!

Mom, watch me run through the sprinkler!

Mom, come on...run through the sprinkler with me!

Mom, there is a sea monster by the mailbox.

Mom, walk me to the mailbox to get the sea monster. It is red with a black tongue.

Mom, play with me!!!

Yes, Yes and Yes! I got to spend a fabulous evening with my little girl doing everything summer. Bubbles, sprinkler, sandbox and more! I loved every minute of it.

Crunchy Betty Honey Challenge

I am on day 3 of the Crunchy Betty Honey Challenge and I am in love! I have been washing my face with raw organic honey (I get mine at TJ's, so good and cheap). My skin has never felt better. I already loved Crunchy Betty but I have to admit that I haven't actually tried any of her recipes, well I'll be trying tons now. I saw old friends yesterday (on day 2) and they were already commenting on how great my skin looks.

Here's the deal, I take a scoop of honey (not much) and rub it all over my face. When I'm in a hurry I splash water and take it off right away, when I'm not I leave it for a minute or two. You will never believe how quickly and easily honey washes right off of your skin. I have a newborn and a 3 year old so mostly I'm in a hurry.

Note: Do not get this stuff in your hair, skin and hair are very different worlds when you're talking about honey.

On another note, I have finally learned how to use a Moby Wrap! Now we'll just see if the Little Chief enjoys it.

Ahhh Love

I am in love. I am totally in love and stressed to the max. I am so happy and exhausted and stressed (did I mention that?). My new son is here, my daughter is feeling extremely lost and I am stressed, oh and exhausted. It's a good stress and a good exhaustion (that's what I'm supposed to say right?). It is a wonderful thing. Late at night when it's just me and LC (Little Chief) I stare into his eyes and feel all that love. I caress his little fingers and smile. It's amazing that we made this life and that we will never do it again.
