It feels like forever since I posted when I miss a week of #MicroblogMonday. Thankfully Monday comes around again each week.
This is the last week of holiday for us all. Paxlet goes back to daycare and Tadbit will start daycare. Mr Siili heads back to work and I will be heading back to work for the first time in just under a year and a half.
We’ve gone to a lot of parks the last few weeks. It keeps the kids entertained and they can be as loud as they want.
Paxlet has taken to whinging. About everything and nothing. Literally. I put his dinner in front of him and he whinges he doesn’t like it. I don’t give him food, he whinges where is his food. Please tell me this is only a phase! In the meantime, how can I keep my cool and not want to strangle my kid. I’m sort of joking.
Tadbit is very much into Monkey see, monkey do. It’s laughable and frustrating. She loves her big brother.
I colored Paxlet’s mohoawk with Peacock blue/green. He loves it.
I bleached and re-colored my hair. This time it’s half Bella Blue and half Patsy Purple. A fun change!
I trimmed Tadbit’s bangs for the first time. *sniff*
We stayed at the in-laws for a few days. My MIL turned 70 and had a great party while we were there. I made this as her birthday card. Can you tell what it is? It’s a chanterelle mushroom!
We stayed the night at a friend’s house in the country. Then the next day we went to Ponimaa (Pony land). There is lots of animals, some of which you can pet. Kids get a pony ride.
This year, Pinto the Falabella horse performed.
I’ve found some clothes at a second hand store. One skirt was only 7€, brand new it would be around 40€. And most recently, one shop had their 1€ day and I found 2 skirts and 3 shirts for 5€ total! I even found a couple of cute things for Tadbit. As if that is hard to do.
Tadbit is still having issues falling asleep at night. I can handle the wiggling and playing around, usually. It’s the screaming that starts to frustrate me. I hope this passes soon.
I’ve lived in Finland for 17 years.
I turn 40 on Thursday.
Mr Siili is buying me a new, to me, laptop. It’ll be much faster than this one.
I’m having a party on Saturday. I’m not really looking forward to it. So many people have canceled for one reason or another. Bleh. I’m still going to make my Muzzy’s Cheesecake and Chewy Gooey Brownie Cake.
Life sure is…everything.
