...aaaaand...my mama's here...

just over 48 hours after dropping off my sister at the airport, I picked up my mom...This is my lucky month:) I wasn't planning on having my mom help with the house stuff, just happy to have her visit...maybe "play" grandma so I could get some stuff done...but she wandered the house tonight making a mental and verbal list of the things she can help me with...gotta love her:)

Lil D must be feeling a bit neglected with all my attention on the house painting and remodel, because he has been nothing but difficult the past week...and he has always been such a great kid. So, since my sister left things have been a bit at a stand still (I can only handle so much whining before I have to put the paint brush down and pick him up...I know he's three but he loves his mama). Today I wanted to get this upstairs hallway moving forward...I got one coat of paint on the 5 (count them 5) door frames (sounds like the landing is big...it's not...they are all just on top of each other:) before he was done with me being away from him (and by away I mean me upstairs and he downstairs)...so we went for a bike ride (first day in weeks that it was warm enough to even be outside)...and after that..."mom, just sit by me and cuddle"...so we did that for the rest of the day. Gotta love him too!

Here's hoping tomorrow he will be so excited to see Grandma that I can finish the upstairs hallway...at least...

I hopped over from New Friend Friday and am so happy that I did! Hope to see you back at my place sometime soon when you get a moment. I have become a follower and hope that you will do the same. Happy Weekend!

I helps so much to have someone occupy the kiddos when working on a big project, doesn't it? I can't wait to see it all finished :)
