This week has all been giggles and fun. Well last week actually. This week has been the beginning of our getting back into the year routine. Teachers measure years in school years and Fall starts a new year for me too. Our mothers group Ibloom started this week. I literally felt like I was in elementary school as I learned which group I would be in and who my mentor mom would be. The great thing about our moms group is it creates a safe place for women with young children to just be their own genuine self. Of course I’m a Catholic-I mean I’m super Catholic in my heart-no budging me and the church for the moms group is Methodist so there are a couple of getting used to things. Like praying out loud. But I soooo love it and have met the most amazing women.
Row doesn’t go to the childcare part mainly because she screams her head off unless she’s with her peeps-me-her main peep, Papa-or Dadee and Grandma. I’m so lucky that my mom spends almost everyday with us when she’s not at work and has Mondays off so I can go to Ibloom without screaming meemie.
Why else has it been a great week? I’ve been to Hobby Lobby twice. Yep. I bought another Americolor-most amazing baking dye ever. I feel I need every color. Grabbed some things for projects.BTW-I’ve been blog hopping and one thing I personally love is when they add links to things they love.
Kindermusik class with Miss Kathy starts tomorrow. Update later! That woman Miss Kathy-friggin amazing like a baby/toddler whisperer and fun-so much fun. I feel like I get a weekly email from her, well I do actually because we banter back and forth just for the fun of it.
Our moms group often makes playdates-open ended for all to come. This past Friday we met at Giggles and Fun. It’s pretty new in Katy and is a large play area with a playground in the middle, race track with plasma cars around it and then several different play areas throughout. Play areas include a hardware store, grocery store, dress up, lego, moon surface, horse stable, and padded area for babes. They host parties and such and charge a $10 fee per child. You can stay as long as you like. If you go with a group of 6 or more they bump it down to $8 per child. It’s a little pricey but a ton of fun.
As you can see I couldn’t even get a picture of Row she was busy stacking. If you’re in the area you should definitely give it a go. Bring socks for you and the babe. It does get hot because it’s in basically a warehouse.
What’s Row wearing-Matilda Jane-Be Mine Sara-yes I’m totally obsessed with Matilda Jane…in fact I even have a pair of ruffle pants for myself-and so it begins.
On this wonderful day in this wonderful land that we live in may we remember the sacrifices of others, the loss, the hope as we remember September 11. May we continue to pray for peace and especially for those who have been taught that religion teaches death and despair. May we pray that those who live with that understanding open their hearts to a gentler God, one who respects life. We have not forgotten, we remember, and to those who survived may you find peace in your hearts.
