Most people dread Mondays, but for me Mondays are the best day of the week! Monday is Luis' first day off so I get my partner in parenting back for 3 days! Also Mondays make me feel like I can take on the world for some reason. Maybe since it's the beginning of the week and every week calls for new opportunities.
I had a very relaxing yet busy weekend. I cleaned the house and spent quality time with my babies. I would finish cleaning something then head to the couch to relax and get mosh piled by my crazy kiddos. While I was cleaning the kids were watching "Mars Needs Moms" on cable tv. Well I have never seen it, but apparently aliens take a little boy's mom and she almost dies. Abram came into the kitchen and burst into tears saying he didn't want that to happen to me! I hugged him really tight and told him it was just a movie and that would never happen to me. I was so touched and happy to know my baby really loves his mama. We were so emotional that night that we did a little sleepover in the living room which was pretty nice because it was so cold and I got to snuggle my 2 little monkeys to keep warm. Mommy moments are the best!
Abram has minimum day all week so he will be getting off by noon, which is cool because he get's more time with Luis. Tomorrow we have parent teacher conference for him and I'm looking forward to finding out how he's doing in class. Last week we were pretty proud of him for learning all the first grade sight words and the beginning of the year isn't even over yet! He is a very good reader so the teacher said she was going to make a list of the second grade words for him now! He was stoked he was the only kid in class who had learned them all. Of course he wanted a prize, so we gave him gummy worms! Haha. Candy makes him happy!
Wednesday is Veteran's Day so make sure you take a look at my Veteran's Day Perks! I can't wait to take advantage of the Knott's Berry Farm perk next week. I love theme parks so I'm looking forward to our special day! I hope you have a wonderful week!!
