Right Now Challenge: Week 29

Happy Friday, friends!

Here’s what I’ve jotted down to remember this week:

  • Luke loves to say, “What?!” now. He says it A LOT.
  • Luke can count to 12. Every time we walk to go upstairs we always count the stairs and so he’s memorized the numbers and loves to say them with me.
  • Caylin is reading so many books nowadays and I love it. Her favorite are the Stink books and Judy Moody. I love that I found her reading in bed one night. Makes me super happy!
  • Jack made a lego “ship” the other day and said proceeded to tell me all about it for about an hour. Then he asked me to take a photo of it so he could remember it forever. Yep, it’ll be in my Project Life for sure. ;)
  • Luke loves shapes and colors. He’ll say the colors “blue” and “green” and when you ask him to say a shape he’ll say “blues clues!” He loves a Blues Clues DVD about shapes and colors. ;)

That’s it for today! I hope you all are having a great day and staying cool! It’s SUPER hot and humid here in Nashville. Goodness! Have a great weekend!!

Right Now Challenge: Week 28

Happy Friday, friends!

I hope your week has been going well! Just popping on in to get my “right now” challenge list down. Here’s what I’ve got this week:

  • Caylin saw Michael and I kissing and hugging the other night and said, “I think my eyeballs are going to throw up!” Ha!
  • Luke is calls flip flops, “ip flops.” It’s the cutest thing and he’s always stealing Jack’s little skull ones.
  • Caylin is all about reading now. She’s read like 3 books in a couple of days. I love seeing her love reading like this!
  • Caylin is also loving hot dogs. We get these all beef (as good as these could possibly be for you hot dogs) and she wants one every day for lunch.
  • Jack watched a movie with firefighters in it and now he’s set on being a firefighter. He was wearing his firefighter helmet around and putting our “fires” in our house. It was the cutest thing!

That’s it for today’s list! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’re writing down some of those “right now” memories going on in your life, too!

Right Now Challenge: Week 27

Happy Fri-YAY! ;)

I’m taking a minute to get these little “right now” moments documented on my blog. ;) I hope y’all are having a great week!

Here’s what I have today:

  • I told Jack that before he could eat the gummy bunnies that he loves that he had to drink his smoothie first. I walked away and then when I walked back I could see him slowly opening up the gummy bunny package and then sneak one. I caught him and he blurts out, “I’m so sorry Mama, but you know how it is when you have a yummy treat that you just love so much and it’s right in front of you and you can’t resist it and it just goes jumps into your mouth and there’s nothing that you can do about it!!!”
  • Luke’s new favorite word is “Awake?” He’ll ask you that in the middle of the day, “You awake Mama?” or my favorite (NOT) he’ll ask you it at 5 in the morning. ;)
  • Luke loves to pretend he is Buzz Lightyear and fly around the room. It’s the most adorable thing.
  • Jack loves to draw monsters. I think he’s given me about 50 so far.

That’s it for today! I hope you have a great rest of the day and to all of my American readers – have a safe and Happy 4th of July!

  • The Right Now Challenge is a challenge that I have given myself to jot down some of the simple, everyday moments that happen in my life. Every Friday I post what I’ve written down for the week to hold myself accountable and also to get these little sweet, tidbits into my memory keeping. You can find out more about what I started this challenge HERE.

Right Now Challenge: Week 26

Happy Friday, friends!

My husband has been off all week and so I totally almost forgot what day it was! Yay for Fridays, right? I’ve been so busy going here and going there this week and taking care of sick kids on the mend that I haven’t written down THAT much for this, but I do have a few things that I wanted to make note of.

  • Jack: “Look, Mama – I can wink both eyes.” He closes both eyes at the same time. “SEE!”
  • Luke loves to say “Yee haw” now. I think it has something to do with his love of Woody and Toy Story.
  • Luke likes to stand at the gate of the bonus room and shout, “Mama, I loooooove youuuuuuuuuu!” It melts me.

I hope you all are having a blessed day and that your weekend ahead is great, too!

Right Now Challenge: Week 24

What a busy week it has been!

Really quickly I wanted to get my Right Now Challenge memories down before I forgot any longer! ;)

  • Luke loves stickers. Every now and then I will give him a few and a sheet of paper and he’ll spend a good 30 minutes putting the stickers on the paper, giggling about them and talking about them. Then I usually find that he’s pulled them all of and has scattered them around the room. ;)
  • Jack: “Mama, I love you!”
    Me: “I love you too, Jack!”
    Jack: “Mama, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you … (and this went on for about a minute…)”
    Me: “Whoa, buddy. What’s with all of the “I love yous?”
    Jack: “I just love you so much that I have to save it over and over again.”
  • Luke is saying, “I love you” now just out of the blue. I think it might be one of my MOST favorite things right now. ;)

Have a blessed day, everyone!
