our weekend

friday

1.  taylor had a friend spend the night.  they played outside until sunset, brought home a baby crow that had fallen out of its nest, had tacos and lots of soda {shhhh}, then camped out on the couch watching things they probably shouldn’t have been watching.  i tried to ask them about chicks and stuff, but all i got out of them is that they have a crush on the same girl and that “she’s nice and very good-looking” … which caused lots of boy giggles.  i feel like i’m probably one of those “cool moms.”  fist pump.

2.  meet petey.  the crow that was brought home, wrapped in a towel, blinking it’s sad little eyes at me.  the boys were adamant that he had a broken leg and wing, so we placed petey in a box and mark called animal control.  after a lengthy discussion, we determined that petey was a juvenile crow, most likely pushed out of the nest by mom and dad.  what looked to the boys like an injured bird, was simply a young bird, not quite ready to stretch his wings and take flight.  we were advised to put him back where they found him, as mom and dad would keep an eye out and continue to feed the little guy until he was strong enough to get his own trash out of our trash cans food.  although apprehensive, the boys took him back, with a bowl of water and said their good-byes.  petey was gone the next morning… fingers crossed he’s safe and sound.  it’s moments like these that remind me how kind-hearted taylor is.  he’s nearly a teenager, so sometimes it’s hard to see that through the crazy hormones and less than stellar attitude.  plus, if he doesn’t watch it, i may nudge him out of the nest, too.  kidding.

saturday 

3.  milk drunk.  i know, i know…i need to stop giving her a bottle.  she’ll be two in august and i still give her one twice a day – in the am and before bed.  it’s not her, it’s me.  a.  i’m not ready to let go!  and b.  when i give her a sippy cup of milk, she cocks her eyebrow and hands it back to me.  who’s the boss, here?   i’m working on it…

4.  we ate suckers and took a ridiculous amount of selfies while daddy washed the cars. 

5.  and then zoey gave me a pedicure.  pretty, huh?  {more photos later this week.}

sunday

6.  we got up early, dropped the kids off at nonnie and papa’s house and headed to the vintage market {more on this later.}  afterwards, we hung out with friends – drank beer by the pool and got some burns sun.  oh, and i took this selfie. 

hello, summer.  :)

  1. When kids are with their friends, it’s the perfect time to ask them about who they like at school. You are definitely a cool mom!
