I have decided to do something new. I have been in a bit of a blogging funk for a couple of weeks now and so in order not to continue in this humdrum of a stage I have decided to start a series entitled “That’s A Wrap” basically highlighting what I have been doing all week. The things that tickled my fancy, choked me to near death, and various other stuff.
The beginning of the week was pretty smooth sailing with our normal routine of getting all the kids off to school in the mornings. On Tuesday I took the girls to the park and then off to get slurpees with the beautiful weather. Then as Wednesday rolled in I got a call from the school saying that my monster B was in the nurse’s office with a “pink” eye. Lovely I thought as I hung up the phone. Off to the doctor to confirm that yes indeed he did have pink eye which is a very contagious eye infection.
One doctors visit and a prescription later we are home and having to put drops in the eye every two hours and trying to explain to a 5, 4, and 3-year-old to avoid contact with one another. **starts laughing** Because at that point all I could do was laugh and hope that it didn’t spread to anyone else.
This also meant that my poor boy had to miss his school carnival fundraiser that he had been looking forward to since the day they announced it. **sad mommy face**
Also rolling in with the pink eye was a rainy storm front ☔️which meant 3 toddlers stuck inside and a mommy trying to avoid the brink of insanity. First I harvested some fresh veggies from the garden and made fresh salsa. To say it’s 🔥a little on the spicy side is an understatement, and I swear that the longer it sits in the fridge the hotter it gets.
Then it was time to get the creativity flowing…
On the right is the start of a Halloween wreath…I plan to do a DIY post about it…maybe in time for next Halloween. I had bought all the stuff to make it last year but that’s about as far as I got.
I am also working on a series of canvas monster paintings for the kids rooms. Below is my first one. He’s not quite done yet, just a few finishing touches to go. In the top left corner is the pic in which I painted from. The artist is Macmcrae.com. Check out his website he has some really cool art work.
I also let the mini monsters get in on some Halloween creations of their own. Katie at Growing Up Kater Tot had posted a pic on Facebook of a project she was doing with her little one and it sparked the idea for these…
This is what one’s kitchen table looks like after a day of myself and 3 toddlers creativity train…
After a long day of arts and crafts, it was then time to settle into our new chairs that daddy picked up at the store along with the movie “Gremlins” a classic that oddly didn’t create nightmares…
Wrapping up the week monster B’s pink eye has almost cleared but we woke up to the lovely monster Z’s eye swollen shut so needless to say…the trying to keep them separated…was a complete fail **left eye starts to twitch**
We had a morning soccer game ⚽️ in 50*F weather.
And now I am watching the clouds roll in and the wind pick up wondering if there is going to be practice for monster M this afternoon.
And teenage monster M has his homecoming dance tonight.
There’s also a lovely bottle of wine…just patiently waiting for my
day week to be over.🍷
