Something about Mondays..
hard to get back to productivity after
a fun weekend at the nearby
Hidden Hills neighborhood parade.
How thankful I am for my cup of coffee..
Tuesday is here and I'm ready.
I have lots of things to do, to prep for our trip
to Utah to visit family and my
husband is playing a concert.
This will be the first time
flying with the baby Knox...
who now is about 15 months old.
I think it would be much easier if he
were alittle baby still, now he's a wild little man! :)
Amelie our little girl who is now 3,
has flown many many times.
What makes the most nervous
about this trip is the return
flight I will be flying home by
myself with both kids! Yikes!
This is when a nanny would
come in handy
(maybe someday when we can afford it).
Thinking ahead of being at the airport
with a 3yr old and 1 yr old, luggage,
carry-ons, potty breaks, diaper changes..etc.
I will need free hands and lugging a stroller
is just too much, I purchased a Ergo baby carrier.
I've heard amazing things about this carrier.
All the other I had suck and got rid of them.
They were uncomfortable, and hurt my back.
My sis has always used the Ergo
and can be worn front and back, and she's a small
skinny girl, and carries her almost 2yr old in it.
So once we get to Utah, and after my husband
plays the concert at the Big Ass Show
on Oct. 8th he leaves right after
to start the U.S. Fall Tour.
I'm staying behind a few extra days to visit friends
and hit up the amazing thrift
stores and craft stores there.
Then I will come back to
meet up with him for his
one day home and then he has a show kinda
near us at the Ventura Theater.
After that he will be off again!
Sad to say this year he will gone for Halloween,
which is not the first he's been gone for.
Those who know me, know I love Halloween.
I will still make it fun for the kids,
probably a Halloween party at Grandma's house.
Right now, I'm home alone too with the kids,
while hubby is touring Indonesia
I'm not complaining,
but it does get hard at times.
It gets hard for him too.
As much fun he's having and living his dream,
he's away from us, and I can't even
imagine what that would be like
to be away from the kiddos for weeks at a time.
I went to NY a couple weeks
ago to meet up with him.
I left the kids with my mom,
and even though I had a blast,
by the end of the
3 day trip I totally missed the kids...
So that's another catch up as to what
we have been up to here
in the Weekes household.
I'm also working hard to get a
craft space set-up again for me,
get a new sewing machine
(mine broke, it was super old),
and get my NEW Etsy baby/kid
boutique shop up and running.
My partner in the creation of this
new shop is my mom Saturdayfinds.
Our shop will be called SassyClassyBaby,
and here's a sneak preview of our shop banner:
Have a great day, ox
