Life Lately

August 1, 2016

So here at The Outnumbered Nest, it is as crazy messy place of business as usual. You wouldn’t think one person could be so busy, but yet here I am.

My grandmother is doing very well in her recovery of her second broke leg. She is now officially off a walker and mostly off a cane. She still has her bad days, but thankfully she is starting to become her old self again.

Monkey man is fixing to start his second year of Pre-K again. In case you are reading this and wondering whoa wait…shouldn’t he be going to Kindergarten well we have decided to keep him back one more year. He is so young. Seriously. He turned 5 in May and there were many in his Pre-K last year that turned 6 in July. So he is almost a full year behind most of those who were in his class. His test scores where fantastic, be on the look out for a post about how crazy I think it is that Pre-K has test, but anyhow. We decided to keep him back strictly on a maturity basis and think it will benefit him greatly. I can already tell he is going to be so much more interested in school this year then he was last year, which is great for this anxiety ridden momma. The main difference this year is going to be that he is going to be going full day instead of just half a day as last year. That’s right he will be gone from 8-2:40. Woah! What will I do with just one kid during that time? I have no idea! It will be a great big adjustment to both of us.

Buggy is great, chubby and running around like a happy little person. He’ll be turning 19 months soon and boy oh boy can I tell you how much I already miss the “baby” stage! He’s running and talking and just growing up. It makes my heart so happy, and yet so sad at the same time. I have noticed one thing about him though- he will be my ER child. Seriously, Monkey never had so many “accidents” as his younger brother has. Buggy climbs where he isn’t supposed to, runs down hills and falls, and just who knows what else! But I’m so thankful for him in my life.

Prayers are needed for my mother. She was in the hospital this week with complications with her heart. I’m unsure and unclear at this time as to what the problems are…but I’ll be honest there isn’t any “good” heart problems. So prayers while we figure out what is going on there, please?

We’ve had a lot of fun this summer. With a zoo trip, museum trip, Discovering Dinosaurs, and lake trips I would say that this has been a very successful summer!

Oh, and on August 7th, B and me will celebrate 2 years together of marriage! Yay! So keep the lookout for a super mushy post about that I’m sure soon!

What was your favorite things you have done this summer with your family?
