This week has been a week full of mom-ing and trying to take some time for me. I had to take two kiddos to the doctor Monday and missed my usual workout. Thankfully, Mr. Serious came home on time, so I scooted after dinner and got in a good workout.
It’s making an impression on the girls. They want to do push-ups or “the jumps” (jumping jacks) all the time. I’m like “girls, I’m tired, I just worked out” but I can’t discourage exercise, so we get to it. N asked to see how many push-ups I could do in 10 seconds (I think that’s what it was) and when I got down on the floor, I had some other exercisers, too.
When I’m not at the YMCA and B isn’t napping, she is extremely clingy. Like needs to be held from the moment she wakes up until dinner is served. She looks very concerned, too, right? (And, the embossed LILLEbaby is pretty amazing!)
Another night getting dinner ready and she wanted on my back. Of course, her sisters left a snack out and she swiped it off the counter and had her day with them. I’m at the point where her not screaming or fussing is worth it right now! Sanity, am I right?
And, another day. You guessed it, “up, mama.” She wanted purple complete this time. I don’t think any of our girls have been quite this opinionated this early on. Oye! But, when she says “yes” it melts me!
It’s a good thing she’s so darn cute, because the neediness is so hard. I know it happens with all kids around this age, but I’ve quickly allowed myself to forget this crazy time!

What were you up to this week?
Since the button code stopped working many moons ago, I took it out. But, if you are adding your link to my link list, please, as a courtesy, add a link back to my site so people can explain and link up themselves if they’d like. After all, that’s the point of the link up!
It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.
