Yep, there's me being festive (or attempting it!) But I am trying to be a good mom and have fun with the kids. Trying is the key word here.
And wanna hear what else? Stephanie and I checked out our girls from school today and took them to see HSM3. The girls have been dying to see it and were so excited that it came out over the weekend. So, what's a mom to do when her daughter wants to see a movie, but mommy is too lazy to fight crowds to get tickets on the opening day? Yep, you check them out of school and go when the theater is dead! So, we surprised them today and did just that. This is the four of them just before we left the school.
And in the parking lot before we left to go to Maverik on the way to the theater (so we could buy drinks to sneak in, of course!) They are so darling!
And now, I think I need to save my "good mommy" energy. I have a week that includes a Halloween parade on Thursday, followed by Lana's preschool Halloween thing that same morning. Then the actual Halloween day with all of its sugar is just enough to make this mommy tired and grumpy. I will put on a smile and keep trying to be a cool mommy for the rest of the week and have a festive spirit.
Then I get to welcome my old, grumpy mommy self back next week.:) No more being fun and festive until Thanksgiving.
