Sunshine Sunday - to do lists, vader, and cousins

This week flew by.  I got some things crossed off the to do list.  Baden was messing with my list so I asked him if he wanted to make his own.  He asked me how to spell the words and he made his own list.  I think he liked crossing his items off as much as I did.  I love that kid.

I picked up Rex from school the other day like this.  I couldn't help myself.  His Vader mask had just arrived in the mail and I hadn't showered or put on makeup that day, so it seemed sensible :)  I think I'm going to thoroughly enjoy embarrassing my children for years to come.

On a fun note, we got to hit a corn maze and fest Friday.  (Check yesterday's post if you're a local and you want to win tickets.)  My sister joined me with two of her kids.  Cousins and sisters are just awesome.

And being a mom is really awesome too.  I'm so thankful for these three little ones.

I've been trying to fit in a little sewing, because I have a billion things I want to make right now.  More on that tomorrow.  And I'm still trying to stay sane with the lack of sleep.  I've tried a few different things, but this little girl wants to eat every three hours even through the night.  Ugh.  Other than the lack of sleep, life rocks.

Thanks for reading.


  1. Hahaha,Darth Vader - Mom picking her young padawan from school! Soooo funny!

  2. 'go potty.' love it! some days i feel like i should add that to MY to-do list. just so i can feel accomplished at the end of the day. :)

  3. what was the boys' reaction to mama vader ??Do you think your lean diet might be responsible for your little one needing nourishment this often ???

  4. I'm thinking Elsa looks nice and healthy and is probably even better off with your amazingly nutritious diet! :)
    Love your pictures, you are the coolest momma!

  5. This is totally t.m.i. but my little girl would eat every 2-3 hours on the dot no, matter what. I was exhausted and I tried SO many different tricks that I'd tried on my other two kids, but nothing seemed to work. I finally just decided that some babies don't like to sleep. Once I came to terms with that fact, it got easier on me {mentally, I guess, does that make sense?} :) Anyway, sorry for the novel, just wanted to say I feel your pain. :) PS Picking your kids up in a D.V. mask? AWESOME!

  6. Hi! I'm so happy to see you blogging again. My boy is only two weeks older than Elza and he eats during night, too. He simply sleeps with us, so I "open one eye" , give him brest and continue sleeping even while he is eating. The only difficulty is to move to change brest. This made my life easier)
    Many hugs from faraway Belarus

  7. Cracking up at the Vader mask!

  8. I'm sorry about the lack of sleep. That's how my second child was, eating every three hours ALL the time. But you're little one is an absolute doll! Thanks for blogging!

  9. Being a mom is hard work and you don't need to overestimate your strength. I can advise you sometimes use CBD oil - https://naturalwellnesscbdoil.com/brand-reviews/cbdmd/. This herbal medicine is designed to calm the nervous system. This will definitely help you fall asleep and rejuvenate. Don't be shy about this.
