Parenting Is More Fun With Friends


Parenting Is More Fun With Friends

Here are some tidbits of life lately!!

Wook at dat whiddle faaaaace

My Birchie boy is almost TWO!

We got to spend a lot of time together last week because he was home from school with a cold.

We all came down with the cold on Monday.

I took Birch for a covid test per his school rules (and waited in our car in the urgent care parking lot for 2 hours…I digress…) and it was negative. This acted like a cold and felt like a cold, but I was still relieved when it came back as “just” a cold. 

Living his best life in the car with an iPad. I was a desperate mama!

Luckily this wasn’t a bad cold and we all still had lots of energy. 

The boys had too much energy and were literally bouncing off the walls!

I love my children fiercely, but I need little space every day. Physical space is nice, but it’s the mental break that it so valuable to me.

It got me thinking how when Mazen was this age we had play dates and gym dates and “it takes a village” time, all the time. Parenting is so much more fun with friends, and I get lonely when it’s just me and the kids at home. Just another small reason why this pandemic sucks so much.

Last week it was just us and the 100 animals in Mazen’s room keeping us company. 

Look at sweet Birch tucking the gator in for his nap <3

Neighborhood Pumpkin Patch

I flipped around his stroller so we could talk during our walk!

And look what we found – a pumpkin patch right in our neighborhood! On your honor to pay for what you take. Love it!
