Good start to the week

I got the kids to school today on time, and they both had a pair of matching socks.

There were no fights and no tears.

Backpacks were not missing.

They both knew where their shoes were.

I consider that victorious.

Jayden slept until 1:00 yesterday afternoon.  I think she's growing.  Either that or she's entering that phase of life where all you want to do is sleep.

Let me tell you, we are clearly entering a new territory with her.  She has been having crazy mood swings...C-R-A-Z-Y.

Brand and I just laugh about it really because she can act a fool like nobody's business.

One minute she's good and the next second she's crying about eggs.  True story.

The next bunch of years should be real fun.

But, in all honesty, I'm not that worried.  She's a good kid.  And she has an extremely guilty conscience when she knows she's wrong and she always apologizes.  She is also a TERRIBLE liar.  I can read her like a book.

Happy Monday!

Five on Friday

1.  I am very fond of Downton Abbey.  I spent an entire weekend watching seasons one and two a couple weeks ago.  I am now caught up to last week's season three finale and I, like most of the world, am PISSED.

2.  It occurred to me the other day that I just need to stop saying "no" all the time. Jayden wanted to make some scrambled eggs.  Instead of telling her no because it's just faster to do it myself, I stepped aside and let her do it herself.  I need to do that a lot more.

3.  I want to take a pottery class with Jayden.  For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to learn how to use a pottery wheel and now she does, too.

4.  I am addicted to Candy Crush.  Why do these dumb games always suck me in?

5.  My Christmas tree is packed into a big red bag, but it's sitting in the living room still because I have no idea where to put it.  Storage is lacking in our new apartment.  I really need to find a place for it because it is NOT a pretty sight.
