I don’t know about y’all but I am already starting to embrace fall. It’s not even October yet but I am already planning R’s Halloween 🎃👻 costume. Also this weekend we are going to the apple orchard with friends and I can’t wait to snap some photos of R with his friend by the 🍎 trees. This week we had R’s 15 month appointment. I adore his pediatrician… she is the sweetest and relatable because she has a little gal around R’s age…. She asked Justin and I how things are going and I flat out said… I love our little guy but tell me this… how am I supposed to get anything done while with him… He screams when I put him in the pack n play for 30 seconds to move laundry/take a bathroom break/ or prep dinner… I asked her what she does… and this is why I ❤️ her… she responded with get take out… Needless to say… we can’t do take out every night but we can embrace reality and that dinners will not be what they used to be unless it’s a Sunday or Tuesday when Justin is around to keep R away from Leo’s bowl. (see below and then times that by a gazillion because that is our life)
Last weekend I had the best time catching up with friends. I met a friend for lunch at Revival. We enjoyed some of the best fried chicken and shared some mac and cheese, grits, and collard greens.
Then on Sunday I met some of my mom pals for brunch at Spoon and Stable. I highly recommend the almond pear danish (no picture, sorry), hash browns, and creamed spinach. I ended up ordering sides for my meal and I was very happy 😊.
While at brunch we chatted about a book called I Want My Epidural Back: Adventures in Mediocre Parenting. If you have children I highly advise you to read this and I also suggest you follow her on Facebook and Instagram (type in baby sideburns). She is hilarious and I love how she tells the truth and she writes what you might be thinking about but too afraid to say out loud…💚💚💚
