School Shopping

I never feel more like a mom then when I'm buying clothes or shoes for my boys.  Why is that?  I think because it's typically a "parent" thing to do.
We've had a week or so of unusually cool weather with temperatures in the low 70's.  Fall weather.
Have I mentioned before how much I LOVE fall? This weather has reminded me that my boys need fall clothes. I also wanted to buy some fall/winter pajamas for my niece's first Birthday party this weekend.  I thought this would work out really well since all the stores are having "back to school" sales right?

Wrong. Apparently since my kiddo's aren't school age they don't need fall clothes since NONE of the stores around here have any out.  Well, that's not true.  They have a handful of things.  And definitely no pajamas.

What's a mom to do? At least my trusted Target had some sneakers I could buy the boys instead of sandals.

I may have to look around online.

I'm Baaaaaack!

 Where have I been this last year you ask?     BUSY!
Shortly after my last post my boss decided to leave his position.  I was promoted to Manager of my department over two campuses with 50 employees.  It's been an adjustment learning my new role and figuring things out.  All while raising two very busy little boys.
 Bennie is currently 15 months old (can you believe it?)  He's so smushy I want to literally eat him some days.  Just take a great big bite out of him. He's got such a sweet demeanor and is totally a little cuddle bunny.

Jackson will be 3 years old next month and he's growing at a ridiculous rate.  Which I find amazing since the kid NEVER eats.  He's wicked smart and learns new phrases every single day.  He has an amazing memory and imagination.

As you would imagine with them being so close in age they are BFF's.  Except for when they're not.

A few months ago I came off my antidepressant and I'm dealing okay.  It's still a struggle every day but I'm trying new ways to manage.
I'm hoping that returning to my blog will give me an outlet again to be creative and expressive.

Hopefully there are a few of you readers left.....(hi mom)
