All The Things

Hey-O. I've been MIA lately but I'm here now and ready to chat!
We had a fun weekend. My parents came up for a quick one night stay. We went to the Farmers Market on Saturday and lesson learned, bring the bassinet that goes with the stroller from now on. This child cannot sleep unless he's laying flat. What in the world? We clicked his car seat into the stroller and he was basically up for 4 hours. Agh! I used to put Campbell in his car seat to get him to take a nap but Bennett is the exact opposite. He was fine, he's such a sweet little trooper, but his eyes were red from being so tired and he slept like a rock all night long. I'm pretty sure he didn't move a muscle. Bless his heart. He needs his crib with his blackout curtains and white noise! Can't say I blame him.
Our life is pretty uneventful these days. We pretty much just stay home all day long and do nothing. For real. I had to take Bennett to the chiropractor today and thought it would be a good idea to go to Panera afterwards for lunch. We got in and ordered our food pretty easily. But then I was like hmmm...how can I fix my drink + hold Campbell's hand + hold the carrier. That was a thinker. Then Campbell was finished eating after his two bites of food and Bennett was ready for his nap so he started getting antsy. I shoved my salad in my mouth and peaced out of there. And remembered this is why I just never leave my house alone with two kids unless I can keep them contained in a stroller.
Even though I stay home all day, my days go by so fast. I guess that's a good thing! I feel like I'm just going all day long and before I know it, it's time for dinner. I don't get much down time but I do really enjoy life these day and being here with my boys and girls. Sometimes I'm itching to get out of the house and if it works out I can escape for a little bit while the boys are napping and Scott is home working. That's always a nice little refresher. I usually just go to Target. I'm such a mom.
Mothers Day Out starts back next week and I'm excited. I've been praying that Campbell will love his new teachers just as much as he loved his last ones. This past year was so wonderful and such a blessing in so many ways and I hope this year will be the same. We meet his teachers on Thursday and I am really looking forward to it. I know some of the same kiddos will be in his class and I'm so glad because his little friends will at least be familiar. Honestly though, I'm really not worried about Campbell. I know he'll be okay. This past Sunday was promotion Sunday at church. Campbell was promoted to a whole new building because he is such a big boy now and not a baby!!! Ahhh. We walked into the building and the toddler director was there to greet us. She showed us to Campbell's new classroom and he walked right in without even looking back. The director looked at us with wide eyes and said "well that's refreshing! We don't usually see that." Scott and I were like, yeah he's bored with us. Ha!! And speaking of promotion Sunday, we put Bennett in the nursery for the first time. He did great and it was nice being able to be in church and really focus.
So there we go. I'm a little caught up and hopefully I won't slack on my blogging anymore!!
