I pretty much hate January. I feel like it is such a letdown of a month after the Christmas season ends. It is cold, gray, and ugly. There are no holidays (except MLK day, and Adam doesn't even get that off of work, so it doesn't really count), and it just seems so LONG! Needless to say, I am glad that tomorrow is February. Not that I expect a sudden change in the weather or anything, but it is just mental for me. January is behind us for another whole year!
Besides the BLAH factor of the year's first month, this last week has just been horrendous. Both my kids have been sick. McKay has been running a fever since Wednesday night, along with a snotty nose. He has been super whiny and clingy, so I have to hold him constantly. Ty has picked up the nasty nose, too, and has a bad cough. NOT FUN. Hopefully we are on the up swing, and this next week will be better!
To dissipate my negativity, there have been two great things that have happened this month. 1. NO BUSY SEASON!!! Do I need to say more? We have actually seen Adam this month! 2. Ty is potty trained! We entered the month in diapers, and are exiting it completely potty trained, even at night! I could not be happier about this!
And, of course, no post would be complete without some cute pictures!
"I'm a basketball player, Mommy!" (Never mind that his shoes are 15 sizes too big and on the wrong feet!)
Ty has been way into PlayDough lately. I am not a huge fan. It is so messy! Adam has been so kind to play it with him (and clean it up!) every night for the past several days.
