1. Early this morning, around 5:00am, Chris and I were woken up by this loud crash in our house. Both of us instinctively jumped out of bed. And then we just started yelling at each other because we didn’t really know what else to do.
“GO CHECK ON THE KIDS!” I shouted to him.
And then he bends down to Big Molly and yells back to me, “I THINK MOLLY IS OKAY!”
“NO!” I yelled back. “CHECK ON OUR REAL CHILDREN!”
Turns out, the shelving unit in my closet spontaneously broke in half. Which you would think would be a huge inconvenience, but actually, it’s great because I have been asking for a new shelving system in my closet for MONTHS now. I win!
2. On Monday night Bean had a tee ball game. I was sitting in the stands with Chris and talking to other parents when our coach called out to the crowd, “Do we have any loudmouth parents out there?”
Well, how could I NOT respond?! So, I yelled back, “I AM!”
And that’s how I became the first base coach. It was pretty fun, until one of Bean’s teammates got on first base, turned to look at me and said, “Why are YOU out here?”
“To trip you when you run,” I replied. But then I threw in a half-hearted “just kidding” in case he retold the conversation later to his parents.
3. The weather here has been glorious this week! Warm, sunny, and just right. The kids and I took advantage of it by going to the library today after school and then coming home and playing out in the driveway. It felt like a little hint of summer to come. As I sat there pining away for summer, I suddenly remembered… SPRING BREAK!!!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #teacherperk
4. Gracie finally discovered the concession stand at the ball fields. They sell ring pops. All is right with the world.
