There’s been a trend around here lately. Sunday – momma wakes up early (like 5am-ish early). I’m not exactly sure how I feel about this trend. I mean, it’s clearly my internal clock being like, “Aren’t you suppose to be up?!” which sucks cause I’d like to be able to sleep in. However, I do get some quiet time to myself. Alone. Ok, with a dog and random cat, but I shoo the cats away and the dog just sleeps so it’s pretty much alone. I get to catch up on my shows, browse the internet without little hands demanding to see too, and I get to write.
Life seems to be flying by. My dad always told me to enjoy my teens because once I had a kid and a job the days are gone in a blink of an eye. Somehow we’re into April already this year. March barely seemed to stop by to say hi before it was out the door. Every year it seems to somehow be busier the last.
This time last year I had just started my new job and we were all getting accustom to the new schedule and changes to our routine. And here it is again, new job and new routine but this one feels right. We are finally in the place we’ve been aiming for. It’s only the starting point for us, but I feel like we’ve finally found the road we want to travel. I currently love my job. I’m busy doing new and different things and I feel like I’m finally starting to get a hang of it all.
March 8th was the Cincinnati Rollergirls first game of the season! Ellabelle had an outfit to wear (of course). I had to make her a shirt cause they don’t sell the shirt in baby sizes and once again she was a hit.
People came to see her and Josh in his sheep hat. Some drunk lady asked to take a picture with him and proceeded to kiss and him afterwards. The team lost, but it was still a lot of fun. Ellabelle danced around like a nut most of the time.
March 12th was the circus! The greatest show on earth! And let me just lay this down for you: $14 cotton candy. Seriously. It was redonk. The shows was amazing though. Ellabelle cried and cried about having to wait and then she fussed during the preshow.
And then there was daddy. Josh thought the circus was “going to be lame.” He thought the circus was just fat clowns walking around. Boy, was he wrong! And to use his description, “It’s Dixie Stampede on speed!” He loved it. He was so scared for the air acrobats. And he was just as excited as Ellabelle about everything. I loved it because it was entertaining, but I loved watching Josh and Ellabelle react more than the show. I’m so glad I got to experience both of them seeing it all for the first time.
March 22nd was a big day for Josh. For the past 5 years, Josh has grown out his hair, raised money, and shaved his head for St. Baldricks, an organization that raises money for pediatric cancer research. This year was his sixth year and he worked to put together the event himself. So off to the C&D we went.
So, now it’s April. The weather keeps teasing us with pockets of warm air and then bring back the cold. Hopefully, we’ve finally shaken winter off for good. We need more fresh air and playgrounds and car rides in lives.
This little girl had her first gymnastics class yesterday. The instructor said she was a pro and took chances on things most kids don’t their first time. She’ll definitely be going back.
And mentioning my little lady, she’s growing so much still. I wish I could make it stop! She’s working on getting words down and amazes me with what she’s able to take in. She’s inquisitive and smart and loves her animals and toys. She’s a terror sometimes, but she’s got a face that’s hard to stay mad at.
Other than that, we’ve been busy living life. Looking forward to lots of fun things coming up in April and May. So, now, since everyone is STILL asleep, I’m going to go make some monkey bread for breakfast.
