Ode to Fall Break - Why Did You Go Fast?

Sunday, October 12, 2014

I'm pretty sure the last week was the fastest week in history.  Why do breaks fly by yet work weeks drag on to no end?  Oh, because it's work.  That's why.

Here's a little glimpse into my fabulous Fall Break:

We woke up on Sunday as four year old (thank you Jesus).  But not just a regular four year old.  A four year old with fabulous bed head.

 On Monday we started our week off right -- Immunizations and Flu Shots baby!  Just doing my parental duties though.  Cohen decided to take a glorious nap with me while Lola wanted to clean out my cupboards.

By Tuesday it was still raining and cold.  But we managed to bundle up and make it on a walk to the playground until we realized the wind was going at gusts of 20 MPH.  But let's get real -- my girl can rock those Uggs like a BOSS.

I also took Cohen and Lola on their first trip to the Humane Society.  As we left Cohen said to me, "That you Mom for taking me to see the puppies and kitties."
See, he can be sweet.

Wednesday was Mommy Day -- both kids went to school and the sitter and I enjoyed a morning to catch up on stuff for myself.  It was also beautiful outside so I was able to enjoy a run in the gorgeous fall colors.  I made a delicious dinner that Cohen thoroughly enjoyed for once while Lola played puppy with socks (they are clean, I promise).

On Thursday we had scheduled family pictures.  However, the rain had other plans.  So I did a few loads of laundry and took Lola to the doctor since she decided to wake up every night of break from 1-3 A.M.  Turns out she had an ear infection and sinus infection -- she wasn't playing.

The rain decided to still hangout on Friday which meant no family pictures...again.  Apparently this weather is telling me to go to Target until we get our pictures taken to find that perfect outfit.  But the rest of the weekend was devoted to family time and enjoying the last few days of our fabulous time off.

Lola eating and loving it...of course.

And hanging out with Spider-Man.

I love these breaks with my little family.  It made me miss maternity leave x 223487923483.

But now I need to go to bed because my children are no longer my alarms.
5:30 do not come too early please...


  1. Looks like you all had a great time despite the weather :) Your kids' smiles are enough sunshine I bet even when it's raining!

  2. Don't you hate how quickly those breaks just fly by?

    And yes, that is some majorly fabulous bed head.

  3. I love breaks with my family too! They're the best!

  4. Looks like you had a fun-filled week . Our fall break was this past Monday and Tuesday, yes we only got two days this year, crazy I know.

  5. Breaks go so fast! We don't have a full week break until Christmas. We always got Thanksgiving week off, and I booked our family vacation for that week. Then the school calendar came out and we only get Weds-Fri off! Oh well, we're still going!

  6. oh no Lola had an ear infection? Poor baby.. I hope she's better!

  7. You did more in a week's time than I sometimes do in a month. I miss my kids being little like that!
