Midweek confessions

Hi lovelies! Today's blog post is just a fun one where I share a few midweek confessions. In true fashion, I meant for this to go up on yesterday on Wednesday, but it's not getting up until Thursday.  Oops! Anyway, we're already over halfway through the week and these are some little tidbits that are on my heart and mind...

Spring break came and went. I've never been huge on the whole "spring break" thing, because around here the weather is still a total crapshoot in March and April. Our week was so wet and rainy that we barely ventured outside, much to the dismay of my crazy toddlers. March kind of tricked us and we had a few really nice, sunny days and we got a little greedy about them. We'd been getting quite used to midmorning walks around the neighborhood and hours spent running around in the backyard, only to have a cold front move back in and bring all kinds of yucky wet weather (and we even had a few snow flurries- gag!) It was fine though because it made for a low-key week at home just me, the kids, and grandma. I love when my mother in law visits because she's so chill and we don't have to make big plans to enjoy our time together. And honestly, with my stress and anxiety being through the roof lately, a quiet week at home with another adult who totally gets it was was much needed!
Ok, can we talk about The Walking Dead for a hot minute? You guys...this pains me to even say it, but this show is losing me. I've been a huge fan pretty much from the beginning and I've looked forward to my Sunday nights forever now. But lately I'm finding myself less and less enthused to tune in. It's not the same as it used to be and I feel like it needs to end soon. It's just so drawn out and this whole war with Negan thing is really getting tired. How many chances has Rick had to end it? And now with Carl dead and them deviating so far from the comics I find myself watching just to see it through and find out how it all wraps up. Lately, some episodes seem to be complete filler garbage with no real purpose. With a show this intense and with so much invested, we don't have time to mess around with throw away episodes. Every single week needs to be good and have a legit purpose, and I just don't see it anymore. But I've come this far and I have to see it through to the end, ya know what I mean? 

My kids are huge. Some days it really hits me that my kids are growing up. Like really, really growing up. You think it's hard when they're newborns and toddlers, and it's so heart-wrenching when they dash of to kindergarten or lose their first tooth. I'm finding myself longing for those days again with my two oldest. It's a whole new ballgame dealing with tweens and teens, and if I'm being honest, I don't like it one bit. We're experiencing some new "firsts" and they're not as sweet and whimsical as snapping those first day of school pictures or remembering get up at night to play tooth fairy again. Shit is getting real and mama isn't ready! I mentioned on Facebook a couple of weeks ago too that we decided to pull my oldest son out of public school, so expect some updates on that in the future. In the meantime, pray for me! I'm really struggling in all aspects of motherhood right now (at least that's how it feels).

On a positive note though, Josiah's therapy is going very well. He's currently doing speech, OT, and we just added PT to the mix and we're seeing him make some great progress already in just these few short weeks. I'm hoping to write an update on him soon too.


I mean, who wouldn't love to sit in this giant bin full of beans?
