Mumbo Jumbo and #alltherandomthings

Our new favorite game in this house is trying to learn to blow up balloons. My favorite part of this game? The way Jack says Balloon

Phonetically: "Balloolololola-nnns" September 2016 balloon collage

IT'S THE GREATEST. and obviously Yaya didn't partake in the balloon blowing, so she just sat around with crusted food on her PJs that she was in all day and chewing on sissy's sunglasses. #thelife

Also, my favorite new phrase to use is "this season of life." haha, I think I saw it in a movie recently, and I now use it everywhere, all the time. "Well, we are in a season of our life where sleep just isn't in the cards." "In this season of life for you, you're allowed to eat 2 creme brรปlรฉe a day." " In this season of life, having pee on your hands 50% of the day is just normal." "Luckily this season of your life means that having wine (and only wine) for dinner is absolutely appropriate."

Y'all, I don't know why I'm so obsessed with it.

ANOTHER RANDOM THING. I'm pairing up with @thewhiteoakshoppe on Instagram as a Brand Enthusiast. Home of the "Don't be a Bully" shirt, I LOVE LOVE LOVE her style. First of all, my Mom and Sister are teachers and I've heard one too many bullying stories that literally break my heart into pieces. I just cannot freakin' understand it and the concept that my kids will be going to school in three years (WHAT?!) and that this is such a serious problem scares the crap out of me. It LITERALLY scares me to death.

So, join in on it and grab your "don't be a Bully" shirts and DON'T BE A BULLY. Like my Mom (and your mom, and your mom, and your mom) have always said, "If you don't have anything nice to say, JUST SHUT IT." (ok maybe it goes a little differently...but I JUST GET SO ANGRY WHEN PEOPLE ARE BULLIES)

AND, bandaids. can we talk about BANDAIDS? I CAN'T DO IT ANYMORE. so many bandaids. I mean, I do it because I can't handle the meltdowns x3, but GAH we are spending more money on bandaids then we did on diapers. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I feel like it would be different if there was a Costco here, but there just isn't. So we are buying 6 boxes of bandaids a week.

Another terrible thing about bandaids, some leave Liv with THE WORST RASH. At first I thought it was an eczema flare, but its in the perfect shape of bandaid ends. So, the Russian Roulette of bandaid picking drives me nuts.

Anyways, that's been our life these days. Traveling around, pooping on the potty, being big kids, destroying things faster than you can blink, coloring on stuff with clinique chubby sticks, loving us some Peppa Pig, Curious George, and this weird German calymation show called Shaun das Schaf. Oh, and never giving up our wubbs. HA, but even if they go to college with them, then they'll be out of my damn house. SO WHO CARES.

I've decided that in this Season of my life(๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚), I have no time or need for caring about the useless things. Ok. going to bed because DAYSHIFT TOMORROW! All Hail the life of NOT BEING A VAMPIRE! ๐Ÿ™Œ

WAIT! One more random thing, on the 10 day kid free cruise in the Mediterranean we went on at the end of August (I just like saying it out like that because it sounds just as luxurious as it was and GAH IT WAS SO GOOD), I read two books and realized how much I seriously miss reading books NOT about potty training. So, LAY IT ON ME! your book picks!

Also, if you havent tried the #icedcoconutmilkmochamacchiato (for people like my Mom who will never be able to decipher that hashtag: Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato) from Buckies...WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU. freakin' go now. GO. gah, GET UP AND GO.

<3 Happy September!
