Well hello there old friend...and by old friend I can only assume I'm talking to myself because after over a year of radio silence on the blog it's possible that I'm the only one still here. Okay, maybe my mom. Hi mom. :) It feels like forever since I've written anything or even checked in (nearly 13 months to be exact). A whole lot has happened in our lives since my last post. For starters - after 3 long years on this journey, we finally moved in to our dream house. It was such an easy process and I'm super glad we finally did it. The conveyancing solicitors we used were fantastic and the sale went through really quickly. The whole process was much less stressful than I imagined it to be which was also great! Now we just need to focus on paying the loans off (a friend is using https://www.sofi.com/home-loans/mortgage/ for theirs, so we may consider it in the future) and getting everything settled.
Okay...I know that in blogging terms this post is probably a few weeks late given that Valentine's day is tomorrow, but meh - that's just how I roll. Actually full disclosure how I usually roll is leaving everything to the last second and then pulling an all nighter to finish just in time for Kash to wake up the morning of [insert school event requiring me to bake, craft, etc.. here]. So in terms of personal achievements, I think being done a full day ahead of time deserves a pat on the back. Plus this project being one that Kash and I could work on together meant that I had to operate within the constraints of 4-year-old bedtime hours.
It feels like its been a million years since my last blog post - and in blog terms it kinda has been. Sorry about that. But honestly, now that my hand is getting stronger, I've been way more motivated to be outside enjoying what little summer weather we've had, than being stuck underneath my laptop.
Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful Moms out there! Especially mine who didn't hesitate to take us all in while we embarked on this journey to build our Dreamhouse. Mom, we appreciate you in more ways than we could ever express! You've taught me what it is to be a great mom, and I hope I can do the job justice.
Being a parent is a tough job. Kids - especially young ones are unpredictable. One minute they're smiling, the next they're saying something hilarious, and sometimes they're just completely irrational. We came across this Tumblr today that has been blowing up all over the Internet in the last few days, and I couldn't help but laugh...like serious, tears spilling down my cheeks laugh. Mostly because I CAN SOOO RELATE TO THIS!
Kids are funny. They never say what you expect them to. Sometimes it's heart warming, other times you wonder what devil spawn has overtaken your sweet baby, but most of the time, the things that come out of their little mouths are just priceless. Now we know we aren't the only ones who think that our kid is possibly the funniest kid on the planet (all parents think this), but seriously - this kid is freakin' funny and WAY too smart for his own good... So we thought we'd share with the world a few of the cute, quirky & random conversations we find ourselves engaging in with our son.
