Wallace House Updates

Life around here lately? Mundane. #joke
Life is never mundane with two little ones running around! I love [almost] every minute of it! The boys give me more than my necessary daily dose of laughter and they definitely keep me on my toes!

I think (I *think!*) I am finally back to a regular blogging schedule. Seems like we had one crazy thing after another. An extra unexpected busy "season" for Daddy at work (which included some travel ugh!), an unexpected wave of third trimester exhaustion, and then two sad, feverish little boys for almost a full week.

^I realize that is the same boy (ha!) but I didn't take any pictures of sick little Jack. He wasn't as bad as poor little Phillip! Luckily, both boys are better and that wave of exhaustion has weaned a bit. Daddy is still busy busy busy but that is also soon coming to a close. So between now and baby's arrival (when more craziness is sure to ensue!) I promise to try to be more regular here!


Home Depot car carts for the win! Twenty minutes in Home Depot in a car cart and their whole day is made.

Upon attempting to exit the bathroom...

Jack: Stop! Not come out. This is the train tracks. There's a train coming. You'll get squished! Red light, mom!

I sat there for at least seven minutes waiting for that dang train to pass down the hallway. My brother & sister both pointed out that I should have counted the cars but I did not. #fail
If I had to guess, I'd say it had at least 100 cars and was moving so very slowly!

Have I ever introduced you to this cute pup? He actually just turned 12 years old a couple weeks ago so he's certainly not really a pup. But he's the sweetest (most disobedient) thing you will ever meet. Oh, and his name is Strider.

Trips to Target make them happy. 

I think Jack likes Target as much as I do which is a lot. During what was supposed to be nap time the other afternoon I could hear Jack playing in his room. When I let him out an hour later the room had been torn apart but I had to laugh when he told me he had been shopping at Target. Apparently he didn't have a cart to put all his purchases in which is why everything ended up all over the floor? You can't be mad at this cute face anyway.

Bath time + bath crayons = two very happy boys. And a little Phillip who acts like we starve him and stuffs those crayons down his throat as fast as he can.

Since we're in a drought over here Jack is pretty unfamiliar with rain. We recently bought him a Dusty (from Planes!) umbrella while in Kansas because all his cousins had umbrellas and he really wanted one too! He's been so anxious to use it and finally rain was predicted one day so I told him he could use it then. Turns out when we actually left the house it wasn't raining anymore but he had been so looking forward to using that umbrella that I let him anyway haha. One happy camper.

When your two year old has a hysterical emotional break down because you are going to the store at 9pm without him and leaving him home with daddy (kid loves to go to the store!) you take selfies (photo + video) while you are out and send them to him...I'll spare you the videos ;)

Our little rain gutter library that we put up is one of the best DIY projects we've (ahem, I've) ever done. The boys LOVE choosing books and sitting on the poufs to read. It's the sweetest.

Too cool for school.

What happens when your brother won't let you wear his baseball hat:

Now that we are expecting a girl people have been warning me about girl drama. But lemme tell you something: boys can be dramatic, too.

Okay. Ready for one of the saddest things to ever happen to me? I opened my iPhone notes one day to update my shopping list and...

WHAT!!! Is anyone else like me and their whole life is in their iPhone notes? My jaw dropped and my heart about shattered into a million pieces. The night before this I had emptied my gmail inbox (which I've never before done!) and apparently iPhone notes is linked to your gmail account? So deleting all my emails deleted all my notes in my phone! HOLY oh my goodness I was so freaked out. Seriously, all my lists (and I'm a serious list-maker...I have a LOT!) and so many important notes were just GONE. AHH! Luckily I hadn't emptied my gmail trash and so I had to sort through 3,000+ emails to retrieve all my notes eek! I did get most of them back (I think!) but I will never ever make the mistake of emptying my mail ever again aye!

And on that happy note...until next time friends!
