Today has been a fun and full day. This morning we had MOPS and it was super great to see everybody. Then we did a bunch of stuff around the house and went grocery shopping. While we were shopping, I wore Paisley in the Ergo on my back. Shopping like that was almost effortless. The whole time I was wondering, why haven't I been doing this every time we grocery shop? Normally they drive a car cart together but, Judah is notorious for being too rough with her and he always makes her cry in the store. A sensitive girl and a rough big brother is a dangerous combination but, today when she was on my back, it was awesome!
I have to share one of my worst mommy moments that happened this evening. I was bringing groceries up the stairs in our house while Judah and Paisley were having snacks. She was strapped into the highchair so, I had the baby gate at the top of the stairs open. After their snack, Judah saw his new shoes from I&L (thanks!!!) and he was super excited to put them on. He hasn't been interested in putting his own shoes on so, I was super excited when I saw that he put these shoes on almost perfectly all by himself. I was watching him, smiling on the inside that he was putting on his own shoes and getting Paisley cleaned up from her snack. I put her down on the floor and then sat down to help Judah with his shoe and talk about how cool they were. I heard a "THUMP" and then Paisley started crying. Yes.....I left the baby gate open and she fell down the stairs. SO BAD of me!!!!! I checked her out and she is totally fine. She got over it super fast and seemed more scared than hurt. I've never forgotten to close the baby gate before and I doubt I'll ever forget again. So scary!
We have a great Grandma that we rarely see. I know how much she loves to receive mail so, for today's Random Act of Kindness, I sent her a card and a few pictures.
I've been thinking that I might start to water mark my pictures. I can't stand the thought of anyone ever printing them off without my permission. I love blogging but, my families privacy is important to me. I know that was kind of random but, I felt like it needed to be said.
