It’s starting to creep into hotter temps here, which means hat season for the dudes. I try not to let them out without a hat & sunnies on. Collin’s is from Little Fit, where they make hats for kids & we love it’s cheeky design. He gets complimented on it every time he wears it into town. We are giving one away at the end of this post, be sure to enter for your chance to win one for your little man or little lady (they make this fun ABCD one in pink, too!).
These are my little people…
This week has been rough. My wisdom teeth are causing me so much pain & Evelyn is whiney times 1000. We went to the dentist on Monday & while Collin left with a high five & sticker of approval, I left with the discovery of four cavities, one that needs a root canal, one that is infected, impacted wisdom teeth, a prescription for Motrin & antibiotics, a slew of appointments for the next month, & sore gums from all the cleaning they had to do. In conclusion, I’m great at keeping my kids’ teeth clean, but mine? Not so much.
Evelyn is in this phase of constant whines. It’s basically all she does. Cries & whines until she is picked up or until someone hands her a cracker…. which makes her happy for approximately 2 minutes & 41 seconds before she’s back to whineration. She’s makin’ it rain whinerade up in here. Four vaccines on Friday, I’m sure haven’t helped with the ‘tude.
We also have 10 puppies currently living in Madison & Andie’s room. Has anyone ever told you how similar owning a puppy is to having a newborn? It’s pretty similar…. & especially similar in the bodily fluids aspect….. times 10, you guys.
I feel like all of my irritations are magnified because of the amount of pain my teeth are causing me. I actually have enjoyed having the puppies. And as for Evelyn’s phase…the extra cuddles are fantastic. I’m just feeling sorry for myself right now over all of the crap. To lighten up my mood, let’s have a giveaway! I’ve teamed up with Little Fit to give one of you an adorable hat from their collection. To enter, use the form below; be sure to see how you can earn additional entries.
