Hey Cuties, LittleCuteLips and I had an epic Mommy Daughter Day, really it was a weekend. The boys were out of town and I had to make sure we had as much fun as they did if not more. I didn't have a solid list of activities for us to do, but I had a few things in mind. They worked out even better than I imagined.
Hey Cuties, Today was a day for the books. It was the first day of Kindergarten for LittleCuteLips. It was the first day my last child started school. It was a day that symbolized the coins I get to keep in my pocket because I no longer have to pay for daycare. Can I get a witness up in here? No, alright. Just know that I am rejoicing and crying at the same time.
Hey Cuties, It is officially summer vacation in the MimiCuteLips household. I have a Kindergartner and an Eighth Grader. I'm probably more excited about this break than they are. Hello staying up late, not checking homework and relaxing a bit more. You know I love a good DIY but the Manchild suggested I do a DIT. What is that you ask? Do it Together. 12-year-olds are amusing. With his idea in mind LittleCuteLips and I did a DIT project.
Hey Cuties, We are in the last week of these April showers that are making way for May flowers. While I'm thrilled about the consistently warm temperatures the children and I are knee deep in allergy suffrage. Myself and the man-child are allergic to trees, weeds, and grass. I don't know what LittleCuteLips allergy triggers are but I know they are seasonal. This means we need to be earth friendly while fighting nature, sounds crazy, right?
Hey Cuties, Spring Break is over and it is back to our regular scheduled routine. We finished our break with an Earth Day bang of sorts. On Saturday is rained all day long, it was chilly out and the day was better suited for Netflix, snacks and a blanket. Due to all of the rain, LittleCuteLips and Babe didn't get to work on their gardening project as planned. Did you contribute to the Earth, for Earth day?
Hey Cuties, I'm back home from Key West & Miami; I still have unpacking to do and pictures to sort and so we will dish on that later in the week. Instead, I have a story to share with you; one day I'm on social media like always and I come across a dope story about a little boy. When you see stories, they are just that stories. You don't know the person, and you don't have a connection to the story; you just read maybe share and you keep it pushing. Well, this time, was different. I knew this kid, I knew his parents and have known them for some time.
Hey Cuties, It is another week upon us and fall officially begins on Thursday. *tosses fall foliage* fall is my favorite season, I love fall fashion, and I turn a year older. It also kicks of the holiday season in my world; yay for nice things. We are still in September and that means it is still Childhood Cancer Awareness Month & Sickle Cell Awareness Month. As your St. Jude Cutie, I'm continuing to spread the word. Today I'm sharing the details of the St. Jude Target House. Do you know that is even a thing? Don't worry; I didn't either until I went for a visit.
Hey Cuties, I'm so excited to share this post with you; two weeks ago I spent an incredible three days with St. Jude. I told you about Day 1: Our tour of the National Civil Rights Museum. Then I shared my beloved Memphis #FatSnacks. Today I'm sharing Day 2: Our day at the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Just in time for September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Hey Cuties, We are coming off a viciously hot weekend in the DMV area; temps in the high 90's feeling like 115. The kids and I kept cool at the pool on Saturday and on Sunday My Girl aka LittleCuteLips worked on a fun project for her. She knows her days of the week but she doesn't have a concept of time. If I tell her something is happening in two weeks she asks me how long that is every single day. If I tell her two weeks is fourteen days, that doesn't make things any clearer. Although she knows her days of the week she has to sing the song to remember the correct order sometimes.
