Moments from the Week

That picture above pretty much sums up the week. Loads of tall iced coffees (one Splenda) and a lot of propel water (to counteract the caffeine and keep me hydrated).

The week started out with a trip with the two big girls and my mom to see The Lion King in Cleveland.

And then there was some one on one time with Sid at her riding lessons. She jumped quite a bit this week.  To say I was nervous would be an understatement but I guess this is what parenting an almost 9 year old is all about. Allowing her freedom to do what she loves and being scared sh*tless as she does it. I love this picture of her in the car on the ride home from lessons. Yep, loving the feeling of her head out the window on a winding country road. Freedom.

This is what parenting a 2 1/2 year old is like. First big girl haircut (goodbye curls). Bribing her with lollipops to sit in the chair while the stylists cuts her hair with lightening speed (anyone with a child that age knows how hard it is to keep them still for long).
