This lets me know that summer is right around the corner. I don't know why I even bother mopping from May thru September.
While the rest of the states are still shoveling snow from their sidewalks, we are just trying to pack in as much outside time as we can before the inevitable heat forces us to become hermits for the next 6 months.
after deciding to be supermom last year with our summer of fun, I got totally burned out in the craft department. I'm starting to feel recovered so we cracked open the container of Plaster of Paris again to make this Easter egg chalk. Kylie used it to cover the entire sidewalk path with the lyrics to "Baby, Baby".
I took the kids garage sale-ing with me and Jayden had his heart set on this 50 cent skate ramp. He was so excited to come home and try it (and insisted on the full safety gear for the event) and was crushed when it flopped after Jason told him it was a ramp for toy skateboards. Not to worry, he found plenty of other treasures to spend his life savings on, all of which I'm certain will be in the donation pile in one month tops. Including a $5 toy plane. Seriously, who charges $5 for a toy plane at a garage sale and who pays $5 for a toy plane at a garage sale? That would be Jayden.
I love seeing Jayden play in his cute little uniform. He had some great hits and plays and it's fun to see him improving each year. I don't love how hot it is. I don't love that all of their games are around 3 PM and in a month we'll be sweating puddles. And I especially don't love that the bathrooms are too far so I have to pack along Maddox's little potty and set up a temporary bathroom in the back of the car. We took about 10 trips back to the car and each time Maddox would get there and say "just toot-toots, try again next time!" I finally drug that little potty right next to our chairs and he took a dump right there in the privacy of the sport umbrella, only a few feet upwind from innocent spectators. No shame. Definately one of my more memorable white trash moments.
