Just Me and The Boys (and girls too)

Hey all! How was your weekend? Mine was...fine. Scott went on a guys trip for the weekend so I was left home alone to take care of the boys all by myself. Yikes. It wasn't bad but I'm not sure if I've ever been more happy or relieved to see my husband walk into our house on Sunday afternoon. There's no doubt that I need my partner and teammate to help me with our kiddos!! Scott does A LOT for me with the boys so it's a bit overwhelming when you're left to do it alone!!
The weekend started out pretty solid. My MIL came over on Friday night (with Pei Wei!!) and helped me get the boys ready for bed and I was so thankful. I actually enjoyed my quiet house all to myself for the night though. I can't remember the last time that's happened and it was a little refreshing to have some alone time.
Bennett slept until 5:15 on Saturday which was so awesome! He's so close to sleeping through the night, I can feel it!! I was soooo glad he slept good and whenever he does, it always gives me a boost so I had a lot of energy Saturday morning! I woke Bennett up at 7:00, fed him, then got Campbell out of bed and made him a yummy oatmeal breakfast.
Yes my almost 2.5 year old still eats in his high chair. Campbell is the worlds messiest eater and he would ruin my house if he ate anywhere else! I don't know what I'm going to do when Bennett needs the high chair.
I digress....
We had a birthday party to go to Saturday morning and I was excited about it! I needed some adult interaction and a way to keep Campbell entertained. The party was right next door so that was convenient! Campbell had fun and I was glad to get out of the house and hang out with some friends. After the party we had lunch at Chick Fil A then came home for naps.
We spent the rest of the day just hanging out at home in our playroom, watching Sheriff Callie. Campbell emerged from his bedroom looking like this and it really tickled me!! This boy is obsessed with all things cowboys thanks to Sheriff Callie.
I fully intended on going to church on Sunday but I just couldn't seem to manage it by myself. Plus I was just plain tired. I was so happy when Scott walked into the door on Sunday afternoon and I'm pretty sure he can never leave me again. I need him.
Overall, a bit of an overwhelming weekend with my two boys and two girls (although they go easy on me!) but I survived it and never cried! Win. I'm 11 weeks in but still trying to get used to managing two kiddos. I'm learning and getting better though! Once Bennett is sleeping all night and I can get some solid rest, I think I'll manage this better. In the meantime, I've got my partner to help me navigate the crazy and I'm glad because I most definitely couldn't do this without him!
