Family is visiting from Arizona this week and life is B-U-S-Y. I can see why so many parents say that once you have two kids then there really isn’t a big difference with three or four because they all kind of play with each other.
And my little boy turned three. Wow. I can’t believe it was only three years ago and I can’t believe it has already been three years. I certainly do remember the terror that we would never get to meet each other after being rushed around the hospital for an emergency C-Section though. If there is only one bit of big time karma that I was ever owed, I would die happy knowing that it was that moment when I cashed that karma in!
All of the cousins gathered around to find out what was inside the bags of presents he received last night. Thomas is still the top of the list, just like last year. With A, every week he likes something different, but with O, Thomas has lasted for 18months or more now.
And the Saturday haul. A lot of people have asked me what I find on garage sales and this weekend was pretty typical. We sent a full truck of goodies up to the store to sell including: a sofa, two chests of drawers, an ottoman, three lamps, some artwork, a coffee table/endtable/sofa table trio and a few other odds and ends that I can’t remember. What I kept is shown above. A bunch of clothes for A in sizes 6-8 (6 hoodies, 4 T shirts, 3 pairs of jeans, 3 pairs of PJs, some shin guards, and a pair of swim trunks) that I will store until he is ready, an unopened box of Mars LEGO (SCORE!), 2 Disney VHS tapes, 4 DVDs for the kids, a Pottery Barn dinosaur quilt, sidewalk chalk and for me: a Natural light lamp for my embroidery.
I even found two Janie and Jack things above…the cutest cars shirt made with felt and a cars and roads sweater. I found this Old Navy sweater with a dog on the front too. All these were 3T for O.
So, that’s what I usually find. Everything you see in the photo above was $46 in total. I actually usually find one or two things for the house too, but not today. Anyhow, I promise that I won’t bore you with a post like this in the future…maybe that will teach you to ask!
I do want that sofa that we bought today though, just won’t fit in the house!
Hope you guys had a good week too!
