There are sometimes when a week goes by and we don’t see very many people other than ourselves. Then there are weeks where they are so packed with people that we barely see ourselves. Sometimes I strategically pack our week with people when I feel like I am living in the neverending-hamster-wheel. But then, sometimes I strategically bunker down because I feel like I am living in the scattered-don’t-get-anything-done-frustration. There are times and seasons for all things. Sometimes Balance is just doesn’t quite accommodate my needs.
I packed last week with people. We had people over, went to people’s houses and had 2 kids birthday parties. It was great. Exhausting but distracting. Distraction is good. When you are on for the long haul, you do what you gotta do! I just am grateful that I am now at a place where there are people that I can pack my days with. I mean, really! Isn’t it wonderful to have people in your life! I like people. A lot.
This is what the kid’s room looks like when friends come over.On a sidenote: She made friends with her dolly. The one she got for her birthday a few posts ago. (She covers herself like this by the way. I just stick her in bed and find her in the cutest positions.)Kid’s party! Ah, If you have nerves of steel and have had about 6 cups of coffee, this place is for you! It is called KuddelDaddelDu. It is a kid’s heaven. Way better then Chucky Cheese.I found a very dangerous Pirate along the way and thought I’d bring ‘em along.Then there was another Pirate.And a beautiful princess.And a very normally exceptionally cute little girl. I brought her too.So, have you ever been somewhere and it is really dark and all your pictures are turning out like this?And then you turn on the flash and it looks like this?I was so fed up I did what I am usually too conservative to do. I jacked up the ISO to 1000. Which still didn’t really do the trick so.. up I went.to 4000! I have never done such a thing because… they turn out like this: Pixely Pooxely Mess of Noise. But I was fed up and chucked my instincts overboard. At least I got rid of the blurry running kid pictures. That slide is a rocket slide. I went down with Preciousbabe and tried to take pictures and hurt myself cause I tried to break and got burned by frictioned plastic. !I then went down the same rocket slide and Netanya tried to be silly and ‘catch me’. Then I rocketed with my camera right into her teeth. It was a bloody mess. (it wasn’t that bad. Just a little shock and blood. But we were both fine in a matter of time) She even got blood on her pretty dress! I then put my camera away and wiped up the blood. Later, I was bummed I hadn’t taken a quick picture. I mean, why not take a bloody picture!? oh wait, let me answer that: because your kid is in despair and all your are concerned about is getting her sorted out. oh, right.
Then we were home and the next day I found another pirate.
A dangerous one!With a snotty nose.Doesn’t she look comfortable? She drags as many toys
junk as possible into her bed. Do your kids do that too? I mean, how do you fall asleep like this!!?? (In case you are wondering…she is in a sleepysack. She likes to have a blanket AND a sleepy sack. Don’t ask. If it means she sleeps, I just nod.)We are going to be gone for the next two weeks. And then, I will have a plethora of beauty to share! I am excited. See you in 3 weeks!!!
