Sick Baby Boy

Here's what a sinus infection, ear infection, and double eye infection can do...
Poor baby Andrew!

It's the little things...

My boys are BOTH taking a nap.
Like sleeping.
At the same time.
Not a sound in the house.
Enough said...

My Valentine

Today Jackson was my valentine! I spent the morning at his school painting hearts on faces and enjoying the celebration. The preschool and kindergarten classes all took turns rotating to each classroom to participate in an activity. In Jackson's classroom we were face-painting and playing bingo. Since Scott is in kindergarten, I was able to watch him have fun too!

Zoe snapped a photo of us...

The kids seemed to really have a great day, and I did too! :)

Finally, a break!

I really needed a break from this never-ending cold! Luckily for me, the weather today was beautiful and we took advantage of that by packing up the baby and heading to the zoo. Jackson was a little upset we went without him, so if temps stay up we may be going tomorrow as well! :)

Great minds think alike...

It was the funniest thing - I was just checking everyone's blogs and I noticed the that Deborah just posted a really cute clipboard she made for Maddie's teacher. I thought it was a funny coincidence that last weekend I made clipboards too! :) I decided to make one for Jackson's teacher, Mrs. Clanton, and one for her assistant, Mrs. Lale, for Valentine's Day. I really had fun making them too. I made a mental note to myself to do more fun projects like this!

Destructo Jackson

I just got back from a nice lunch out, intending on getting little cleaning done before I have to pick up Jackson in an hour.

I thought that maybe I'd start with magic-erasering off the crayon on my nightstand...

or the crayon on my wall which goes well with the nice red marker on the curtain, don't ya think?

or maybe the big red X "that means don't come in Mommy!" on Jackson's door.

There are the things I have hope for, but have not had much luck with so far, such as the permanent marker on Jackson's vinyl window,

or the lovely, and permanent, mural on his wall (which you can see I tried to paint over but the color didn't match - it's a work on progress!)

Finally there are the things that I know are lost causes, like my wicker side table that apparently needed some venting at the top,

or Jackson's antique headboard that he scratched up one night :(

Sometimes I just can't keep up! Are all boys like this? I'm just hoping that one day, even if it's many years from now, I will be able to have just a few nice things in my house. Until then I'm off to clean the wall, door, and nightstand. Let me know if you have tips for the rest!
