Baileys Lately #3

I've actually started doing my daily documentation using a private Instagram account, so rather than recording daily happenings in my planner I've just been posting 8-billion times on the IG account.  Which... has lead this blog to be even further abandoned.  Yep.  Awkward.

But I want to write!  I like to write.  I really do.  I like to blab on to no one, and I like looking back on those blabbings.  It's fun times, trust me.  So, here's a Baileys Lately.


  • So, there's this new Mickey Mouse show on Disney Junior called Mickey and the Roadster Racers.  I thought, "Pshh, how lame."  Uh, apparently not.  George randomly asked to watch it.  Now he's hooked.  Apparently, I was wrong.
  • Maren can reach any hazardous-anything on the kitchen counter and it's... fun.  She knows the colors of the dangerous things, too.  So that's an added joy.  I can't tell you how many times a Maren has gone running by with a pair of scissors.  Yep.  I'm a good parent.  Not to mention the knives.  She's just so freaking tall.  How does she accomplish this?  How does she even see these things?  That girl be cray-cray.
  • George ate a vanilla wafer at his OT appointment two weeks ago and Gluten George is just barely receding to his dark cave and normal George is returning to his rightful place.  Gotta love us some Gluten George.  He's a total joy--said in the most sarcastic way possible.
  • After using Instagram for so long in my, "Hey, this is what's up," journaling, I have the constant urge to insert emoticons as I write this.  Yep, 21st Century mom over here.  Oh dear...
  • Now that Sofia is legit walking, seeing all three kids cruising around the house together is both hilarious and slightly sentimental.  Hilarity comes from the drunk walking of the girls.  It's so great to watch, truly funny.
  • I don't know if I ever documented this, but for a long time I've been able to vacuum with no one crying or being upset.  It's been heavenly.  And also very, very needed.  Maren and Sofia like to Hulk smash things and George loves makin' it rain with cereal.  Kids are fun.
  •  Bradley got me a new vacuum for Christmas and I love it so, so, so much.  I love vacuums.  So much.  I lust after vacuums.  I'm probably a stay-at-home mom.  Possible.
  • Sofie has started blowing kisses.  It's adorable on its own, but then instead of making a "mwah" noise she blows raspberries while she does it.  SO CUTE.
  • Maren now makes the "mwah" kissy noises.  And it's so freaking cute I die a little each time.
  • George has started calling me a "dork".  I'll say, "You're a dork, George," and he'll respond, "No, you're a dork."  It's so great.  That's my boy!
  • Just how many independent distributor based companies are there, exactly?  Like, seriously?  And is it a rule that the majority of them must be related to weight less or lip-something?  Just wondering.  No reason.
