Waiting for my mom of the year award to be revoked after waiting too long to buy pumpkins and now the grocery is picked clean. Hoping we find some at the garden center down the street tomorrow…IN THE SNOW!!! Those are happy exclamation points.
Speaking of awards, Therese at Aussie Coffee Shop passed along this cool blogger award to me. How nice was that? Therese is a Catholic mom of 8 and lives in Australia. It hasn’t stopped amazing me that we live in a time when we can connect with people on the other side of the world and it’s no biggie.
Jason and I saw Les Miserables this past weekend. What? Why did we wait so long? It was amazing. Totally the best thing I’ve seen on stage, and that includes Wicked by a good margin. And we had *amazing* seats. Third row, center, baby.
The Pill! It’s natural! It’s safe! Oh, wait a minute…
Our pediatrician confirmed today that our littlest one has an “appreciable” peanut allergy. We will soon be armed with Epi-pens. I’m so not happy that we’re going to have to be those parents.
We just got back from our kids’ fall festival at their school. This is a yearly major undertaking in which the kids perform music/poetry, display art, and show off the massive projects they’ve constructed around whatever unit they’re studying. This year our daughter’s class made a big old pirate ship, dressed up like explorers, and led a tour through a pirate-y maze. Our son’s class had a lot going on- aqueducts, the Arch of Titus, a scary tour through the catacombs, and gladiator fighting in the collisseum, with a lion thrown in for good measure. Our son got a shift as the emperor and got to give a thumbs up or thumbs down to the fighters. So cute. I’d post a pic but I don’t want to embarrass him.
Did I mention how exciting it is that it may snow before Halloween? And speaking of Halloween, have a great All Saints Day. And All Souls Day.
