Sleep as I know it, is gone.  Well this is not really a revelation, it has been gone for some time now.  Almost 4 years really. 
KJ, has not been the best sleeper, never has been.  He takes after his mama.  EJ is great, sleeps through the night with no problem.  Here’s the situation:  KJ has been sleeping much better.  But just in time to actually let my head lie on that pillow all night and now we are working through not peeing in bed.  So, we are up again, a couple times a night.
At about 2:30am the other morning, I was in bed thinking about this sleep thing.  Today I am up because of potty training.  Tomorrow I will be up because they are making too much noise with their friends and then I will be up because it is 2:30am and they aren’t home yet.
Sleep as I once knew it, is gone.
Never to return.
I think I will always be up at 2:30am.  Worrying.  About something.
Again, not a revelation, just a mom, thinking.

Boy are they cute when they do sleep though!

Time Flies

Yes, time flies when you are having fun.  We have been filling our bucket with lots of fun things this month, so instead of talking about what we would like to add to the bucket, I thought I would share a little of what we have been up to.  Enjoy!

Balloons, cupcakes and presents

lots of smiling

fun in the snow

and 2 big boys starting preschool

As we end the heart month, I share with you what I received in the mail today from my dear friend Heidi.

Thank you for the awesome coffee sleeve!!!  The cutest gift!

Balloons are so much fun.  EJ’s birthday was this week and although he got a few presents, he and his brother spent about 45 minutes last night playing with two blue balloons.  I love watching them play and laugh and have a good time.  Isn’t it ironic the amount of time and effort we put into birthdays and in the end balloons are all they really care about.  J

It made me think of the movie The Red Balloon.  Have you seen this movie?  I remember it from when I was a kid.  You can find more about it here .  But, basically, it is a balloon and a little boy and the streets of Paris.  So lovely. 
Might have to introduce this flick to my boys.  I know I will enjoy seeing it again.

The Love Month and Pinterest

Ok, so February is not just a party month, it is also the love month.  Yes, I know, I am falling into the Hallmark holiday, but come can you hate the love month?  I can't. 

So in honor of that, I have a few things I would like to share from Pinterest.  Have you seen this fabulousness they call Pinterest?  Well you will get addicted, as I am.  But check it out.  So fun.  That is where I picked up these beauties. 







BTW, can someone make that coffee koozy for me?  I heart it!  :-)

Party Month

February is the shortest month of the year, but our family has tons of birthdays this month.  It is a party month for sure!

Great friends, my Brother, Dad, Grandma and my youngest will all be a whole year older.  Oh how time flies!

In the spirit of party month, I am thinking up some fun activities.   Jordan over at Oh Happy Day has some great ideas, including this pinata type thing-a-ma-bob.   I love a good fun party with a pinata, so maybe we will have to try it this month.

Get your party hat on, it is February!
