So no pictures today again! The ones from yesterday will have to hold you all over :-) It's 1:30 and I *just* got the girls and Finn down for naps and finally have time to eat something--whew! So I've decided I don't care about a real blog update today haha.
BUT I wanted to say that we solved the Ava mystery! Remember the "ava" friend Raya had the first day of swimming lessons? Well today a mom came up to me and was talking like she knew me and said "now that I know you live by me we shoudl have a playdate" etc. ....and I"m thinking who the heck is this?! Well low and behold it's a girl I took dance classes with in middle school---and my mom had told me awhile back that she lived near me and had a little girl about Raya's age---I had kind of forgotten about it! And guess who her little girl is? Yep, the mysterious pigtail "Ava" that Raya declared her friend LOL. Only her name isn't Ava, it's Cora. Miss Raya was still confused :-P
So anyways, I got a good chuckle out of that and I can d ie happy now that I've figured out that mystery! Raya had a good last day of class---although me and another mom had to laugh that they spent the first 5ish minutes of lessons on the grass talking, and then our girls spent the last 10 minutes in the potty LOL...so lessons weren't very long today needless to say. She got a little certificate for passing though---so I guess it was a good intro to the water.
Today while at lessons I got to thinking about how stinkin' hard it is, even as a stay-at-home-mom, to find good matches with other moms for playdates! I mean, first you have to have kids at least somewhat close in age, and then there are all the different "types" of moms to weed through. For instance, there was a really chatty (and very nice!) mom who talked to me every day of swimming lessons...and had a little boy Raya's age, a girl Brielle's age, and was preggo and due in a month with #3. BUT she was a cosleeping, baby wearing, husband works at the church and they're having as many kids as God wants, etc. type of mom. Which is totally fine for sure! But could not be more opposite than me haha. (And yes, she told me all of this herself--she was a talker!---so I didn't just stereotype :-P) So I feel like I'm always crossing off moms as possible good matches as fast as I can find them LOL. Anyone else feel like that?!
Maybe I'm just too picky ;-)
Well, Happy Friday everyone! We don't have anything too excited planned this w eekend...probably packing and getting the house in order because we leave on Wednesday for our anniversary trip--waaaaaaaahooooooooooooooo! ...and yes, I'll miss the girls (we are gone 4 nights)....but I'll miss them in a "awww, they're so sweet" sort of way...but not in a "awww, I wish I could wake up at 6:30am and change diapers and make snacks and break up fights" sort of way!
