Standing in the Sink!

Posted via Pixelpipe.
My Mom was just visiting us for 5 days. Along with her, she brought exhaustion, illness, and relief. Don't get wrong, I enjoy it when my comes to visit, but by the end of the trip, we are all ready for normalcy to return. We did a lot with Mom here. We went to MGM Grand Casino and saw the Lions. We went to the M&M Store and paid $65 for 7 lbs of M&Ms. We saw the shark exhibit at the Mandalay Bay too. (Boy was that an adventure). Mom ran us ragid It shows how out of shape we are. Sean and I did get a few nights out together for the first time in 4 years. We even stayed at a hotel for a night. (Don't get too excited, we were too tired to do anything) The last day Mom was here, she wanted to buy the kids some toys, so we went to Toys R Us.After an hour or so, they decided on a kitchen set with pots and pans and play food. They all love to pull out all my pots and pans, so Mom thought it would be nice to buy them their own set. After Mom and I staying up until 5:30am, we finally got the kitchen put together for them to play with. They were so excited Sunday morning to see their new kitchen. Liam thinks it's a jungle gym and like to climb into the little sink. I posted a picture of it for you all to laugh at. I sure got a good laugh out of it. Mom left Sunday night, and now we are all sick with a head cold. So much for a relaxing vacation. Oh well!


  1. Love your photo. The thought life of children fascinates me - what is he thinking at that moment while staring at the wall?

    It seems that you feel after your mothers visit the way I feel after my children have been home for a weekend. I love having them home but I admit, comes Sunday afternoon, I sit back and just enjoy, enjoy, enjoy the peace and quiet.

  2. I am so sorry to hear that you and the children are sick! Not fun.
    I love that your kids are as silly as mine. Standing in the sink is something my kids would totally do!

    Feel better soon!!!

  3. Isnt that crazy that the MnM's are sooooo expensive?! I had so much fun..what anahhhmazing place!! what else is new chickie??

  4. A Human kind of human~ He is pretty silly! I often wonder what goes through his head myself. He's a strange little guy. I have a problem dealing with chaos, so when everything is back to normal, I can at least try to relax.

    Nicole~ Liam always trys to stand in the kitchen sink. I don't know what it is with him, but he loves it. Thanks, I hope I feel better soon too. How are you and the kiddies feeling?

    Sarah- I think it's crazy to pay that much for M&Ms when I can just go to WalMart and pay $15 for 7lbs of candy. Go figure! I would have had more fun if I wasn't pregnant and feeling like crap. Oh well!

  5. I know what you mean about getting back to normal and less chaos although the mother-chaos is great for your children, I bet. They'll always have memories of the excitement.
