Monthly Mumbles, March Edition

10. Can I just say that I'm tired? I've been spending the last full week celebrating a certain five-year-old's birthday, and it's catching up to me. Good times have been had, however; a party an an ice cream store, dinner out for The Big Day, a few hours at C.O.S.I. yesterday, and a visit to the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium despite the freezing cold today. So yeah, I'm tired. Good thing he's totally worth it. :)

9. The March for Babies is coming up quickly--we've got about six more weeks until walk day! Our small, four-member team has some lofty goals; we're hoping to raise $2,000 (!). I'm about to close a Scentsy party in which I'm donating all my earnings to our team, and we're sponsoring a "Blue Jeans for Babies" week at work, which is easily our biggest fundraiser. If you'd like to help moms & babies, please click on the link to the right to donate to our team--every little bit counts!

8. Took Aiden in for his five-year well visit yesterday, and left pretty bummed out. He only gained ONE pound over the past year, and he weighs a whopping 29 pounds at five years old (to put this in perspective, Nolan, at not even two-and-a-half, has most likely passed his brother weight-wise). His pediatrician and I looked over all our notes from his various tests over the years, and decided to try one more specialist to see if we can solve this mystery. I sure hope we get some answers without breaking the bank.

7. Tickets to see the live performance of Les Miserables in May have been purchased and received. Can't wait to enjoy this with my family :)

6. Can't stop watching Love It or List It on HGTV. Those Canadians have some sweet home remodels. I like to see if I can call the ending within the first 5 minutes of the show. :)

5. The older two boys have been enjoying their new bunk beds for about a week, and it's been going...okay. Nolan, as usual, is my problem challenge. Without the limitations of the crib, which he had recently decided to just climb out of anyway, he wants to PARTY at bedtime. This has resulted in many trips to the bedroom by Angry Mommy & Angry Daddy to tell him to knock it off. I'm trying to come up with a solution that involves no one getting upset; maybe let him play in there for a half-hour or so until it's actually bedtime? I dunno.

4. My Buckeyes are playing the second round of the B1G tournament in a few hours. Granted, I'm not nearly as big a basketball fan as I am football, but I do follow my team. Hopefully they'll have a great weekend and carry that into the NCAA tournament next week. March Madness makes this girl HAPPY. :)

3. My sweet, happy little Justin is reaching for objects and putting them in his mouth already. In a few weeks, we'll be able to start rice cereal. He needs to slow the heck down.

2. Paid off a vehicle AND my student loans this week. House refinance is nearly complete. I love being a financially responsible adult. It's more thrilling than I ever imagined!!!

1. St. Patty's Day is SUNDAY!!! I L-O-V-E this day. Shamrocks and green and beer everywhere you look. Easily one of my favorite holidays.
