Almost All of My Girls | Mommy and Me Monday | 298th ed


On Sundays, the big three go to AWANA at church, leaving us a parents of one for about 1.5 hours. It’s a nice treat for all of us. So we went out for a walk to help cure the cranky pants (mostly B’s but a little of all of ours). She was so sweet and snuggly on my back in the lillebaby that I had to stop and get a picture of us walking.

N and I were making a quick video the other day…except when I went to send the video I realized we took two pictures. Start and end (because it has to be on “video” to capture a video!). This was the end picture. Pretty good smiles for the end of a “video”, right? When I asked if she would do it again with me she said “I thought about telling you that it wasn’t on video, but I didn’t want you to get mad!”

I don’t recall the last time I had a morning with E to herself. We dropped B off at school, ran some errands and then went to a farm for her field trip. It was nice to have some solo time with E and I think she enjoyed it, too. The weather was meh at best and rainy at worst, but we made the best of it. I only got the van temporarily stuck in the mud and she only got her shoes and feet wet and dirty. Overall it was a very fun time together that we both enjoyed.

And for good measure, a Halloween picture of the girls: Super Sleepy, Lady Bug, Cinderella and Bo Peep!

Happy Halloween | Really Are You Serious? | Mommy and Me Monday

This week, I head to Chicago for some time at the ALDI headquarters and I’m also sneaking in some time with my cousin and her new baby as well as a very long-time blog friend. But, I need to make sure to get some solo time with the oldest two, because we haven’t had much of that lately, and time is fleeting with that one, I feel!

It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.

  1. What adorable pictures! You and your girls are just too beautiful for words.
    I love the Halloween costumes! I may have to steal the super sleepy costume next year. What a cute idea!

  2. I struggle at times getting one on one time with 2 kids (ok so really the baby gets it a LOT) so I can only imagine trying to do so with 4. I’m trying to find ways to get more time with my son on his own. He’s been acting up a bit at home & school lately and I think it’s in part wanting attention & a bit of jealousy. He’s so great with his sister, but after 5 years of being the only child, I worry some days that he’s missing his time with his mommy alone. It’s a tricky balance at times.

  3. Super cute pics! I love their costumes. Mine were all the same thing, due to jealousy, lol.
