This week I was THAT mom. Yes, you know, the one that gets sympathetic stares from all the other mothers who are grateful that screaming child (er...children) are not theirs. Yes, I lugged a crying Addie in her carseat in one hand, a wet, screaming-at-the-top-of-her-lungs Ellie in the other arm, and a diaper bag, towel, shoes, and other nonsense on my head, shoulders, and back. Yes, trying to wrangle Ellie OUT of the pool after swimming lessons proved to be a challenge this week. And yes, I'm sure it looked rather ridiculous. Looking back now, it's comical but oh the mortification at the time. ;) Ha!

Speaking of three year olds, we are going through QUITE the stage right now. The above picture is an accurate depiction of this week. As long as mom is around, Addie is a happy camper and Ellie, oh being three is so hard! For the most part, she's an absolute gem, we've just had a few extra outbursts this week and I've been sneaking a few more drinks of Brian's Coke than usual. ;) Ha!

Also, Addie is THIS close to crawling. Ellie and I cheer her on all day long, it's our favorite! I guess it's about time we start baby proofing again...and block off the stairs! I swear yesterday she was just a tiny newborn. It goes by SO FAST! Anyway, we're off to a play date with friends (and the zoo!) Bless this slightly warmish weather. :)


P.S. I picked up the hat Ellie is wearing at Target this winter, along with Addie's outfit. Addie's headband is from Mads Made Headbands, Ellie's outfit is hand-me-downs from Gap, the floral blanket is from Layla Bell Designs and the darling striped diaper bag is from Coco and Kiwi.
