Hey Cuties, How was the weekend? Did you get and give all the Mother's Day love you desired? I didn't want to do anything but parenting has no days off. My daughter didn't get the "Don't ask Mommy, ask Daddy for everything today" memo. On Saturday I hosted a Mother's Day Tea; it was an annual thing but I fell off the past four years. At my daughters request and a little pushing from the ladies in the family I got that old thing back. The Tea Party is for the mothers and daughters in my family as well as close friends. It is the reverse He-Man Woman Haters Club (c) Little Rascals, so Babe and the Man-child went to the Super League Minecraft Gaming event.
Hey Cuties, If you spend any time with a children that are age 8 to 16 years old than you've probably heard of the game Minecraft. It is a very creative yet basic looking game that is made of pixels; think Atari like. My son has been into this game for several years now. I gave him a Minecraft Theme Birthday party almost two years ago. To this day this is still one of my most popular blog post on MimiCuteLips.
Hey Cuties, I had a full weekend; I'm talking all kinds of full. I covered an event on Friday and Saturday; the Saturday event was kid friendly so I took my girl. The boys hung out at the National Science & Engineering Festival. Oh and we went to a Shoe Tying Class, I told y'all about that. I also decided to pay the kids when I need them to work for MimiCuteLips. I'll call them, paid interns of such; nothing crazy but a payment. This means I get all the photo opportunities I need and they will give me their opinions/feedback when necessary. I don't believe in paying for chores so this is a way for them to earn a coin. EARN is the keyword here.
Hey Cuties, I told you I took Nori to a Shoe Tying Class over the weekend. Yes a class that teaches you how to tie your shoes FOR FREE! Nori recently taught herself how to tie her shoes. Honestly I didn't know she had been teaching herself. She mentioned wanting to tie her shoes but I didn't put much thought into it. Apparently she was just determined to learn and did so quietly in her room. She is so my child.
Hey Cuties, I decided to change things up a bit today. I take tons of pictures; I have my entire life in film since I was in High School. That is when I fell in love with the camera; I'm talking 110 camera with a flash cube love. Since having children I've become even worse, I have their entire life documented in pictures. Babe will humor me every now and again but he isn't really about this life.
Morning Cuties, This year I'm all about being in charge of my own time. Doing what I want to do and being more intentional with my time. The kids are on spring break and we decided to just stay home this year. Staycations can be a lot of fun if done right; so we decided to spend the day with them doing something they would enjoy. If you are in the DC Area and or a Wizard of Oz fan come close, no closer, like seriously come all the way close.
Hey Cuties, I hope you've sprung forward and started your Sunday on time. Now Monday is here and I will need at least a week to adjust to the time. Despite the time struggle I am happy to have more hours of daylight. Spring break and Easter are only two weeks away. So I will be sharing a couple of Easter/Spring related DIY's.
Happy Leap Day Cuties, Shout out to those born on February 29th, your next turn up is in four years so make today count. Today we are getting ready for Dr. Seuss Day. Wednesday, March 2nd Dr. Seuss Day and everyone is invited to celebrate. Everyone should know who Dr. Seuss is no matter your age. Just in case you just landed on Earth today Theodor Seuss Geisel aka Dr. Seuss was a writer and illustrator known for his popular Dr. Seuss children's books. This day is filled with all things Dr. Seuss and reading, yes Read Across America.
Hey Cuties, How was the weekend? I spent my Saturday running around with Nori. She has quite the social calendar now, how did we get here? She had her first birthday party invite from daycare. It had a nature theme, but she was NOT for touching the animals. I did touch the chinchilla, it was so cute. Other than talking our heads off toddler parenting is chill right now. That older one... yeah well...
