These three are living it up this summer. Pool and popsicles every day. Movies and games at home. Lots and lots of play time. They don’t know how good they’ve got it. I was worried about how we would fill the days this summer with no school and no big plans…but to my surprise it has been pretty easy. The days are long but seem to fly by. I just want to bottle them all up and keep them like this forever.
Can you tell our favorite thing about summer is popsicles? We’ve gone through SO many. Belle knows as soon as she’s finished her dinner she can have a “pop pop”. And any time I open the freezer to get something out she runs over shouting “pop pop! pop pop!” and gets so mad when she doesn’t get her way. She is my most dramatic child and totally has the the “youngest child” role down. And she knows it.
This motherhood thing is beautiful and exhausting and heartbreaking. I love them so much I want to squeeze them….and then moments later I want to hide from them in the pantry.
And don’t even get me started on these two. Belle all of a sudden has become obsessed with her sister….and it is my favorite thing. I didn’t have a sister growing up and I desperately wanted one. So it’s so fun for me to watch these two. They are already best friends…and I hope that’s always the case. Belle is going to miss her “sissy” when Sadie goes to pre-school in the fall.
So that’s what we’ve been up to. No fun vacations or crazy plans. Just fun days at home. And I kind of love it.
