I’m Outta Here

by

Sorry for the tease post yesterday (some of you google reader users may have caught it).  I posted something to this blog that was supposed to go on my work blog.  Oops!

Anyway, I am on the verge of being giddy today.  A couple months ago Nicole, Robin & I planned a girls weekend to Chicago.  The “reason” for the trip was to celebrate my upcoming birthday but let’s be honest, it’s just really about the 3 of us getting out of town without children.  Our husbands will all be holding down the forts while we galavant around the Windy City.  Lot’s of shopping, meals without cutting up other people food, an adult beverage or two, possibly a pedicure, a pit stop at Ikea.  Life is good, my friends.

Tomorrow afternoon my dad will be coming over to hang with Elle & Pais while I head north.  Dad is great with my girls, but I never quiet know what will happen while I’m gone.  He has earned this reputation.  When Elle was just over 1, Dad was keeping her for me.  When I returned home everything seemed to be fine.  Dad left & I just went on with my day.  A while later I was changing Elle’s diaper to find a little message.  He had written “Hi Mom” across her bum with a sharpie!  You can be assured that all sharpies will be removed from our home before he arrives tomorrow.

Oh!  And because I am a fabulous mother…I should mention that Paisley had her first birthday.  I don’t plan on ignoring it!  In the mean time, check out some of the pictures from her birthday here.

    (Note to self: Bring your own Sharpie tomorrow. And maybe some duck tape.)

    Have fun, ladies! Know that the children are safe. Don’t give a thought to the fact that I was actually alive during the ’60s. Contrary to rumor I was NOT at Woodstock and had nothing at all to do with “Disco Demolition Night” at White Sox Park.
