Oops…I Did It Again

If you’ve been around this blog for long, you may recall that several years ago I laid out a costume for Eric to dress Eli in for daycare. At that time I was working early hours, and Eric had Daddy Duty every morning, so I would try to help by laying out clothes the night before.

Anyway, a few hours after leaving for work, a confused hubby called me to inquire why I had sent Eli to daycare dressed up like Elmo (or maybe it was Batman, I can’t remember) when it was NOT, in fact, Halloween!!!


Ya’lll the poor kid showed up all decked out and was the only child wearing a costume.  Thankfully he has no recollection of this event or else he would probably go through life with trust issues. 

It turns out that in the Watson home, history sometimes repeats itself. Yesterday afternoon there was a note in Eli’s folder that it was Mid-Evil Dress Up Day at school.  In true “Kindergarten Parent” fashion, I panicked because we didn’t have a costume.  Thankfully, Eric assured me that following the reading program, we would drive to town to buy a Knight outfit.

Fast forward to this morning when I dressed up my little Knight In Shining Armor, before rushing out the door.  When we pulled up to the car-rider drop off line, I noticed to NO ONE was dressed up!!  Ya’ll should have seen me de-costuming the boy and throwing the Knight gear into the backpack.  Ha!

For good measure, I reread the letter, and I had the right date this time.  I guess they were supposed to BRING the outfit rather than WEAR it.  Poor Kid.

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
