Life is good right now.

Last night I was laughing with Jeff that I've been reading too many books lately, it makes my mind thing like an author, we're so relaxed and comfortable right now that something bad needs to happen. Jeff said, "Ah, the plot twist." Then he came up with a good plot twist that involved him quitting his job a la Dave Chappelle. I laughed until my side hurt, that boy is funny.

I think one of the reasons I'm so relaxed is because my mother had my big kids in Blythe for a whole week! It was just me and Whitney enjoying some quality time together. And Jeff had Monday off of work so it was super weird. He RARELY has holidays and with the kids gone it was super quiet! Eerily quiet. It was nice to have some space but it was my everyday life I wouldn't prefer it. The house did stay clean since there wasn't anyone to go behind me and instantly mess it up though! That was amazing haha.

A whole week with just Whitney solidified her adorable status. And she has two matching bottom teeth that are super sharp!

Here's a video of her "crawling":

"I just need a compass and a willing accomplice"


"Sometimes you think everything is wrapped inside a diamond ring
Love just needs a witness and a little forgiveness
And a halo of patience and a less sporadic pace
And I'm learning to be brave in my beautiful mistakes

Oh, I've felt that fire and I, I've been burned
But I wouldn't trade the pain for what I've learned
I wouldn't trade the pain for what I've learned"

"But you, you're uninvited"

-"Uninvited" by Alanis Morissette

I took all the kids shopping with on Saturday morning and it was a disaster. Grayson is so difficult. He does NOT like to be told where to go, won't sit in the cart, wants an obscene amount of stuff at the store, etc. etc. Anyways, if I had to break my experience into numbers here they are:
Number of times Grayson got ran over by the shopping cart in Whole Foods: 2
Number of Elmo books Grayson LOUDLY begged for in B&N: 2
Number of bookshelves Grayson tried to CLIMB: 1, in front of a very unimpressed employee
Number of times I had to hold Whitney's carseat on one arm and a screaming Grayson in the other: 3
