Taking another day off from running due to shin issues = cranky Amy who cannot sit still. It’s not really hurting (not 100% though) but I want to play it safe because I have a 10 mile run on Saturday. I also realized I need to be extra careful because it would suck to injure myself now, when my first half marathon(!) is less than 1.5 months away!
I told y’all that last night we had fajitas. Here’s the delicious pics.
I tried to make them healthier by using cabbage wraps instead of tortillas. I think Kyle wanted me to sit at a separate table so he would be associated with “that.”
Today I baby sat my twin cousins. My mom was supposed to pick them up from school, but I offered because I remember how cool it was when someone other than your parents picked you up from school. And I wanted to be on the other side this time!
And I made sure they were both buckled- we did NOT take off like this I promise.
I also brought them some cookies from work. Shhhh don’t tell their mom…maybe she won’t read this post?
After picking them up, I took them home and got them ready to go swimming. In case you were wondering, it takes about 50 minutes to get 2 boys sunscreened, swim-suited-up, and water bottles and snacks picked out. We took brief intermissions (due to lack of focus) to play with remote control cars. ohh right, i was actually looking for goggles…
I now appreciate all the times my parents watched my sister and me swim…without drowning us.
Sample sentences from this evening- all said at least 15x per kid:
- Amy, was I straight (referring to handstands)? Amy! Was I?
- Amy watch! Did you see???
- Look how long I can hold my breath!
Sample excuses as I was trying to get them out of the pool:
- One more jump, I need a do-over
- I’m just tying my shorts
- Yeah, I need to tie my shorts too
- What? *ducks head under water as I start talking*
Had to get a good jump shot for their mommy- resulted in a lot of “do-overs.” I think lifeguards were actually invented to prevent parents from killing their children. I kid, it was actually fun…for one night.
After swimming, we headed back to their house where my mom had made dinner. Whole wheat spaghetti and meatballs. Keepin’ it simple to avoid “I don’t think I like _____” statements.
Oh, and these organic bad boys.
The boys were pretty tired after dinner. Successful pool outing if I do say so myself.
Have a great evening! Remember, tomorrow is FRIDAY 🙂
