Week In Review: Ashley

Heeeeey y’all! It’s week in review time again… are you excited? You so should be.

Alright – what’s the main story from this past week? Well. We’ve been sick around here. Cooper has had this monster combination of allergies + a cold. Sophie got a little bit of the cold…I got full blown cold plus what I think was a sinus infection. Then thanks to all that drainage happening from the cold and allergy combo, Cooper has developed some stomach issues. So yeah. That has been a BLAST. Anyway – we are surviving it.  Barely. I mean – I keep talking about it and complaining about it…and posting to my Snapchat about it…I’m almost on the level of man cold over here with all the attention I’ve been giving this thing. 😉

Another highlight of the week was Cooper’s Thanksgiving Program and Feast(s) at his school. Wednesday I got to go eat lunch with him in the Cafeteria for the school Thanksgiving lunch day. Friday was the day of the program and the PreK (3&4) feast which took place in the PreK wing at school. It was all super cute and fun. Sitting there watching him during the Program was definitely one of those “dang I’m an adult with kids” moment! He did really well, fulfilling his role as turkey with ease. 😉

This weekend was super chill. The kids went to Grammy and Ppop’s on Friday night so I took full advantage of that. How so you ask? Well – I took my sick butt to bed early and didn’t get out of bed until after 10 am the next day! Super wild times.

Saturday, I joined the kids at my parents. My sister and brother came over and we all just relaxed … well they kind of relaxed. You know, in between the times that Cooper and/or Sophie demanded they play with them. lol As I sat there and listened to Cooper whine that Grace needed to play with him some more, despite the fact that she’d just spent a solid hour running around with the kid playing police man, I thought how one day my time will come when she has kids and I won’t get to be the boring parent anymore. I’ll be the exciting aunt who has a nieces and nephews insisting upon my full attention and playtime. One day ….

Speaking of nieces and nephews – Cooper asked for a brother this weekend. Apparently having a sister is not good enough. He needs more. Unfortunately for him this factory is closed down…so I texted Grace to let her know I’d told Coop he’d just have to hold out for a boy cousin to fulfill the role of “A boy to like play with and stuff” <<his words…

Sunday we did venture out of the house to go the park – but besides that we spent the rest of the day at home. I did a crap ton of laundry and watched football on and off.

I’m looking forward to a short work week and Thanksgiving Festivities! What about you guys? Anybody put up their Christmas tree yet? 😉
