For any of you that still come around these parts and read my blog…you’re all saints. I promise someday life will be a little less crazy (maybe???) and I’ll go back to posting more consistently. And maybe something other than random Friday stuff. Maybe 😉
But for now…
If you follow me on IG, you might already know that we got rid of Nash’s pacifiers this week. It all started when we ordered a Joker toy for a neighbor friend’s birthday and Nash just about lost his mind when it arrived at our house. He wanted it SO bad. I decided that was an opportunity to get rid of the binkies…for a mere $15. Well $15 and about 36 hours of hell… 😉
He was pumped about the idea when his new toy arrived, but that night at bedtime was a different story. Not sure why I decided to do this the week Chris was out of town (not smart…just NOT smart)…because it was rouuuugh. Nash was in my room every 5 minutes from 8pm to midnight, begging for his binkies and asking me to go dig them out of the garage trashcan. It was really pretty sad 🙁 The next day was when I truly thought I was going to lose my mind…but then Chris came home and Nash konked out early (of course). Today has been a much better day and he hasn’t asked for his binkies once…so I’m hopeful we’re turning a corner!!! Now, let’s just pray those buck teeth go back to where they should be. YIKES!
The saddest thing is, I think that was the end of naps. He’s been down for at least 6 costume changes since I started typing this post. Sigh…
We went to our first summer movie this week and the kids loved it! KC friends, B&B in Overland Park has $2 movies on Tuesdays and Thursday–and popcorn and sodas are also $2 with free refills! Our morning adventure only cost $10 total. Can’t beat that!
Now don’t go thinking I’m supermom or anything…because as long as Arden and Nash have a movie and unlimited popcorn, they will sit there all day and not make a peep. It’s actually easier than going to the park or the pool–haha. And Hartley is still young enough to nurse and sleep through the whole thing, which is great. Something tells me we won’t be making any summer movies next year though 😉
This. What a perfect reminder. Even during the weeks where I have to hide in my closet more than once…I know there will be a time when I long for these days.
“It’s an incredible feeling. To know that I’m living in what I will look back on at the end of my life as the happiest I have ever been. The happiest I will ever be.”

Have a great weekend and a happy 4th of July!!!
