Are you ready?


Summer is here, and I am not ready for it. I don't know if everyone is like this, but it takes a lot of time and planning to make sure my summer goes a little smoothly. I have to plan menus, activities, get games, crafts, books, etc...

Menus are hard in the summer, I have a hard time with "lunch." I get stuck on labels, there are things that I only feel are "dinner" foods, but there aren't a lot of good "lunch" foods. Does anyone else agree? I hate preparing a big lunch, just to clean it up and start working on dinner. I also don't want my kids to live off Mac-n-cheese, PB&J. frozen pizzas and popcorn chicken. I also don't have the money, and don't want to live off fast food.

So I need ideas ladies. Things to keep my children and my self sane, happy and well fed.

Pretty eyes

Everyday while I do my makeup, I have to constantly take makeup away from Macy. She grabs everything, and says "Eyes mama, pretty eyes," as she pretends to put it on. She is getting very good at opening things now, so she can't just pretend.

Today I guess I wasn't paying very close attention, because she came back into the bathroom, looking like this...






I almost died laughing, I don't know how she didn't poke out her eye. I asked her if she wanted to see how pretty she was, and of course she said yes. When I picked her up to look in the mirror, all the blood drained from her face. She was terrified, she kept saying "scary eyes mama." I quickly took pictures, and then washed her face. She was so happy to see that she was back to normal.
