Week Happy-nnings

We were projected to get snow and as usual our small southern town didn't get what was expected. Basically we got a strong dusting and were projected to get four inches. We had a snow day regardless. I let Jack paint a canvas using pink, red, and purple. It is now added to our Valentine decorations. I also picked up some Valentine stickers for him to stick all over himself.

I'm so happy that I've stuck to my walking during my lunch breaks. When it is super cold or rainy I walk in the gym


Notice my super cool headphones that I just grab from the ones the kids use. Why can't I seem to remember to bring my earbuds? Also, I'm loving this scarf. I got it last year for Christmas and it works with so many outfits.

Clay masks are the best for two reasons. 1/ they feel amazing 2/ they scare the mess out of your kid

My blogging friend Tabitha talked about her Great Purge of 2016 and I'm right there with her. Jack had two sock drawers. I dumped them all out and got to matching. What didn't have a match went in the trash. Now to keep it this way. Last night I purged the toys. I have a huge garbage bag full of perfectly good toys that Jack doesn't play with. I'm thinking I'll put them in storage and bring them out in a few months. Maybe start a toy rotating system. 

My students made snowflakes as a way to help decorate for the winter ball the PTO is hosting. It was suppose to be today but got moved to next weekend due to the weather. Is it sad that I'm looking forward to this dance? I think it is going to be so much fun to just enjoy the kiddos and let them be wild. 

Pictures like this remind me that Jack is growing up. The other day I was in the bathroom and Jack went potty. He just stood up and peed like a big boy. He has been sitting on the potty and I just figured I'd teach him to stand and pee later on. I think he must have seen the other little boys at school do it. Now I really get to feel like a boy mom and constantly clean up pee out of the floor. The same day he tooted like he was a grown man so I guess he has officially turned into a boy and not just my little baby. Good times people!

I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Glad you got a bit of snow! Sounds like you made the best of it :) It feels so good to start cleaning out things and I am a big fan of rotating toys. Great idea!! I rotate our books and like to do stations with toys.
