We’ve had a very busy week so far. It’s involved Meet the Teacher, gymnastics, Chuck E. Cheese, haircuts, taking Dixie to the vet (for excessively licking like a lizard), Big A’s first day of school and cleaning.
On Monday night we had Meet the Teacher night. I am SO thrilled with Big A’s FIRST GRADE teacher. She is just “that” teacher who goes above and beyond. Here they are!
And here is Big A on her first day of school. Little A wanted to have nothing to do with pictures at 7:15 in the morning, but I told her whether she was crying or not, she was going to be in the picture. If that’s how she was on the first day of Big A’s first day of school, then that’s how she was. She didn’t stop crying until we got in the car.
I am so proud of all of them! They are my world. (You didn’t notice that my almost three-year-old still has a paci, right?!)

So, what have Little A and Mama done now that Sissy’s in school? We’re trying to tackle this mess…
And this one…The catch-all dining room table. You’ll find some boxes of china (that Christopher’s parents just found in their closet…btw, I sure was missing those wine glasses), school clothes, cords, mailing supplies, 24 antique wooden horses for Christopher’s pica machine (a post devoted to that soon) and much more.
The past couple of weeks, I’ve just totally neglected the house because we’ve been consumed with other “stuff”. But yesterday, I just got to the breaking point and decided I would have to do the dreaded task of cleaning out drawers and closets. It just needed to be done. I couldn’t even put up the clothes from the dryer because I was out of hangers and drawer space. Little A still wears some 12-18 months, and with the weather change it’s just hard to decide what stays and what goes. But we did, and I am so glad.
Now y’all, I’m totally opening myself up for having posted these pics, so please be nice to me! Maybe I’m just trying to make all of you feel better for being as bad a housekeeper as I am. (Or maybe I’m just in denial and totally embarrassing myself!) Feel free to leave comments with your suggestions on how to be a better housekeeper.
Ok, I need to end for now and get started on the next mound of chaos.
Have a great weekend!
