    Charlie's 3rd birthday | Oh Lovely Day

    My apologies for the lack of post today (on a Monday too, for shame!) but sometimes momma duty takes priority. Today is my little guy’s third birthday, and yesterday was his party – the combination of prepping a party as well as baking cupcakes for his preschool class was all I could handle this weekend. I’ll be sharing some fun ideas from Charlie’s party in the coming weeks – it was a combination of laid-back (at Griffith Park) and toddler-friendly (bouncy house!!) with some fun creative details. We had a blast.

    Charlie's 3rd birthday | Oh Lovely Day

    Something I like to do every year for Charlie’s birthday is to create a slideshow for him of his past year. It lets me reminisce on the year and have a little momma moment on his birthday (I’ve cried like 10 times today!) and gives him something to watch for fun now and save for later. So I thought I’d share it too.

       This week was a rough one. I feel like I say that every week but this one really was. Today alone had me at my breaking point. All three of my kids seemed hell bent on driving me crazy. Quincy literally wouldn't let me put him down or leave the room without a major scream-cry fest. He rode around on the fuss bus allllll day. Tropical storm Calvin left destruction in his wake everywhere he went (if you follow me on snap/stories you got a little sampling but that was nowhere near the extent of it). At one point I went into a room away from my kids and sat in a chair and cried. Within three minutes one of them found me (of course) gave me a hug, and we were all better (except Calvin -- I think this is his permanent state ). This photo is my version of thinking happy thoughts. Bougainvillea vibes ✌️️✨  And just like that, summer is back  Take me back to the fall weather of two days ago! Also, take me back to when this kid slept past 5 am and took naps. For a week now, between 4:30-5:30 am this kid climbs up on our bed over top of me and proceeds to squrim, poke, and annoy me till I get up. Quincy's sleeping till 6 or later FINALLY and now Calvin is waking me up!? And he refused to nap today (again) too. Seriously you guys, he's killin' me. He looks real cute in rain gear but if he does it again tonight he's headed to toddler military school. #sotiredineedanewwordfortired #calvins3rdyear #battlefieldmotherhood
