They wanted to earn some money. I wanted someone to scrub the dirty moldy walls. Win win. #toobadtheyarenttaller #youshouldseemykitchenceiling #itsscary #offspringarecool
Making fancy cakes for auntie Friend. The girls each made a different one. Pax helped. #offspringarecool
Happy birthday @friendmiriam We're really happy you are going to be part of our family now. We all love auntie Friend.
His birthday present from uncle Wayland required some assembly. 😍I really like that we have some extended family close by again. Kids need aunties and uncles in their lives.
My girls like to give me coupons for my birthday for things like, Take you out for coffee or ice cream I cashed in a few of them last week. #daughtersareawesome #offspringarecool
And now he's 8! This crazy smart, exuberant, loving, bouncing off the walls all the time kid is getting bigger every day, and asking tougher questions. I'm thankful for him, his smile, his excessive sometimes hugs and kisses, the way he ties to take care of his younger brothers, the way he comes to find me to say, I didn't snuggle with you enough yet today mommy, can I have a snuggle? the way he pushes me to be better at this mom gig, for his sake and my own, the way he still can declare today the best birthday ever! and totally mean it. #thechildthatchangedeverything #rainbowbaby #thechildwhotaughtmetogivethanks Jungle Book cakes courtesy of the older sisters of course.
