I am working on a Bridal Shower Recap post; but for now, here's a little teaser below. It was such fun to plan an adult party for a change.
We've had a busy week, but in the midst of the busy-ness, we've found time to just spend time together as a family. I snapped this photo of Mr. Howard and Connor watching movies. Connor is a complete cuddler at night. That's about the only time; but we'll take what we can get!
I joked on instagram that I must be completely crazy because I took the kids to target by myself more than once last week. It's definitely getting SOOO much easier to do this on my own...not because I'm some super hero or because my parenting skills have improved dramatically, but because the kids are getting older and more well behaved...that and I've learned the art of bribery before going in - "Okay guys. We're heading into target to get a few things and Mama needs you to be good. And if you're really good, we might be able to have a piece of Easter Candy early. But only if Mama can get her shopping done without any fights." Of course, I balance the I-said-I'd-never-ever-do-that guilt with the idea that they're still getting the same amount of chocolate; we're just spreading it out over the course of several days. So, I'm delusional and happy because I can smile at the other mamas whose children are freaking out in the carts and offer my I-totally-get-it face while my perfectly behaved children sit quietly and wait for their early Easter chocolate. Win. Win.
