turning the mundane upside down

Today could have been just plain humdrum.
So we changed it up a bit.
I always wonder what other
SAHmama's do to fill up the days.
You know, besides laundry and diaper changes.
Here's some of what we do:

I wore my new pretty skirt,
even though I had no place to go,
except to the mailbox with Ella.

"Miracle Worker" was really good!

I gave Wyatt a new hairstyle.

And I totally love it!

We folded laundry and read books
in a fort.
Sometimes, it's worth it to make
a bigger mess while trying to clean up a mess.

Painted fingers and toes,
used fancy toothpicks for lunch,
and ate popsicles on the porch with friends.

Jam & cream cheese = perf

I planned & daydreamed
about the trip
that the Hunk & I will take in
a few weeks to celebrate
our 8 years of marriage!

Shrinky Dinks!
So much fun.
When is the last time you played
with those cute little shrinky dinks?!
found at Roberts Crafts

Gosh, therapies can be so bothersome.
For him and me!
But with Josh Turner blaring,
and a first-time try with play-do,
the dreadful stander becomes
somewhat tolerable.

And dinner? Well, I suggest
trying chips with a hearty salsa
peaches & cream.
PS: I am so giddy for Autumn!

And hey! a spur-of-the-moment
trip to the park.

I love mundane days.
