I promised myself I would stop procrastinating just as soon as I got home from New Zealand. Kalina (the source of transportation for her siblings while I was gone) got her driver’s license just six days before I left. It was stressful. It was horrible.
I promised myself never again.
Well, guess what? Jubilee is now a licensed driver and I am not heading to New Zealand in six days. So, I’m going to call that a win.
Before you send me a Most Improved medal for Former Procrastinator let me confess. She took both her written and driving test the day before her permit expired. But, as I told her, she got her license with hours to spare before her permit expired at midnight.
She has even already taken her first solo drive…which, let’s be honest, is always terrifying. Especially since she doesn’t have a cell phone (because apparently, we raise our teens like its 1985). No need to worry, my friends, she will be getting a parent-issued flip phone soon. And yes we are taking cash donations.
Avi took this adorable selfie when we picked up Apollo from school. Sorry, Avi, if you are going to look this darn cute I am going to post your photo.
I fell in love with these built-in shelves as soon as we moved into our house. Recently I have found they are perfect for organizing our cats and boys….along with our library books.
And speaking of cats.
The other day Mordecai was trying to pour his cereal with his cat in his arms. Let me just say, it went exactly as well as you would expect it to go (and for the record, our cats are not allowed in the kitchen). I heard Mordecai say, “I need a sling”.
So, I grabbed the sling I bought 18 years ago when I was pregnant with Kalina. The same sling I carried Mordecai in as a baby. I set him up, helped him get the cat settled, and within two minutes she was happily snoozing in the sling.
Mordecai is not new to slings…after all, I have this photo circa 2006 where he has a doll sling while he sews.
Welp. That pretty much sums up spring break so far…How are you doing?
