We had a lot of fun stuff happen this week including my first day of school, our first visit to the library, and babysitting JC's BFF Damian. And I even got my hair did. Amazing.
On Monday, JC did some very serious modeling while eating his breakfast. It looks like he's trying to sell cologne. Damian hung out with us for most of the day. And we decided to chuck our icky hand-me-down rug that we had in the living room. Our hunt for a cute, inexpensive rug continues.
Damian came by again on Tuesday. I felt bad because Charles had the day off and I had a hair appointment so I had to leave him in charge of two babies six months apart in age. It's kind of a lot of work but Charles got it done. This allowed me to have a little bit of sacred "mama time" while I got my hair highlighted. I can't believe it actually worked, my hair is so naturally dark. I just got some reddish-brown highlights throughout but I think I might have her redo the top of my head because the highlights are too bright and chunky for my taste. And I reheated some Mexican leftovers for dinner. JC chomped on a tortilla and thoroughly enjoyed himself.
On Wednesday, JC got to have a PB&J waffle for breakfast. It's amazing. We sent a funny photo to Charles while he was at work missing all the fun. Then we went to Target at 11:00. Target is already awesome but it's even awesomer at this time of the day. Like, no one was there. So nice. Well I decided to get a chai latte at the Starbucks inside Target and I got JC one of the little Horizon milk cartons. This was all good and dandy as we enjoyed our beverages, until JC squeezed the milk and got milk e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e. I knew it was going to happen but I went against my better mommy judgement. Later, JC decided to tell me that he wants more fiber in his diet by taking a chunk out of this little book. JC loves to bring me random shoes from the entryway and put them on my feet. He at least got one left and one right. After dinner, JC discovered an old-school nintendo controller and thought it was quite fun.
On Thursday, JC and I went to "Story & Play" at the library for the first time. They list the age range for this get together as "Birth to 5 years" which I find to be kind of a big gap. I was a little worried that it was going to be a bunch of older kids but it was actually a lot of 2-3 year olds and a few kids JC's age or younger. It was a lot of fun. JC especially enjoyed the playtime at the beginning. He kept taking out the same two fruits out of this bowl, putting them back in the bowl and then putting his hands up in the air like "Ta da!" For lunch, we met up with Charles for some Rubio's. JC kept eye-ing my burrito so I thought it was unfair to make him watch me enjoy such deliciousness and not let him try any. What JC did when I asked him, "JC, where's your ears?" And Charles and I like to party pretty hard once JC goes to bed.
Friday was my first day of school!! Seriously you guys, I haven't been this excited for school since I was in third grade. I'm only taking one class but I think it will be more than enough work for me right now. It's "Digital Imaging 1" which is basically a Photoshop class. I'm so excited to learn some new stuff. We're also working on Macs which I don't have very much experience with. But I know that if I really want to get into graphic design, Macs are pretty much the standard. Charles had the day off so he was able to watch the kidlet. When I got home at 5, they were both still in their pajamas. And JC looks almost as cute upside down as he does right side up.
Tomorrow is my catch up day so I will be spending most of the day cleaning. But Sunday we are totally having a sorta "end-of-summer bbq" with a few friends so I'm super excited for that! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
