May Currently

It is MAY!!!!!!!  That means an end of year countdown and also Farley's May Currently!


I am part of a mothers of multiples group in my area and we met last night at Jose Peppers (my fav!!) to plan our annual picnic and brainstorm some playdate ideas for the summer.  Several of us had hubbys working late so we brought our kiddos.  So hilarious!!!!  We had 4 sets of twins and a set of   triplets at the table, plus some mommies who escaped without children.  My girls were in hog heaven with all the friends to “talk” to!!!  My girls are little hams so they danced on their chairs, flirted with the triplet boys, and waved at anyone and everyone who walked by!  What a hoot!  I didn’t get to eat much, but there is a comfort in going out to dinner with a bunch of ladies who know the craziness of multiples and expect nothing less than chaos! :)

This week was our last reading story and spelling test! Woo Hoo!!!  So we are officially ready to start our End of Year Fun unit (We have this for 1st-3rd!) and to get ready for our 2nd grade Smartypants Camp. (There are 1st and 2nd grade versions of this!)  Love this time of year!!!

I have 4 1/2 weeks until baby boy arrives and his nursery is NOT ready!  I feel so guilty because my girl’s nursery was literally ready 2 weeks after I found out what we found out what we were having!  Even worse, several of the projects for his room are things that I need to make, but I am just SOOOOO tired at night and there is NO way I could work on them with my girl’s help!!

I need to get everything packed up in my room for end of year checkout over the next 2 1/2 weeks and then I also have to plan the first 2 weeks of my 6 week maternity leave!  We only have to plan 2 weeks for our long term subs and I am actually okay with just doing that because Katie can fill in the sub about what we do after that.  It is so nice to have a coworker that is so similar in everything teaching!!

I am getting to the point where sleep is a fleeting thing at this point!  Add to that the fact that my littlest (ha! By 7 min!!) darling has allergies and can’t breath well at night when she tries to sleep.  So daddy brings her up to bed with us every night now and she sleeps ON TOP OF ME!!!!  Oh well, she will only be this snuggly and this age for so long!  I need to just enjoy it!!!!

My girls are really into animals right now so we are getting a zoo pass so that we can join the MOM’s group every week this summer and explore the zoo.  Now I just have to figure out how to wrangle 2 2 year olds and a newborn at the zoo… :)

I swear my husband belongs on should see our garage!  Maybe he isn’t that bad, but as an only child his parents have passed on EVERYTHING to him...junk too!!!!!  So we have been slowly weeding through it and I have been “encouraging” him to let go of the stuff!!!

Florida!! Yay! My aunt and grandpa live in Ft. Myers and I love to visit.  Since my hubby works a ton in the summer and I have maternity leave at the beginning of the year we will be taking all 3 kiddos down to visit in early September for a week!  So excited!
