five on friday

{1} Jon and I went to see an old farmhouse on 14 acres in one of the best school districts around earlier this week. We didn't know much about it and were hoping it wouldn't need a ton to make it inhabitable, but sadly that wasn't the case. It was really cool being able to see old cars in a garage on the property and antique furniture in a barn, though. 

{2} Elden punched his loose tooth out. He had told his preschool teacher that was his plan and when I asked him why that was the method he chose he informed me, "in the Trolls Christmas movie the Bergen gets slapped and he loses his tooth, so I decided punching myself was better." May we all have the tenacity required to punch ourselves in the face when we set our minds to it.

{3} Pip still thinks he's a dog. He loves bath time and he always joins us in the bathroom during that process.

{4} Wednesday was rough. Both girls took turns sounding like feral pigs undergoing exorcisms. Someone was touching me basically at all times from the moment I walked in the door until bed time. I forgot to bring Etta shoes for our Target trip and she loves walking everywhere so she was mad. I was just done. So my friend, Alli, met me half an hour before moms hip hop and we sat in the parking lot and shared a margarita (though Alli has since informed me it was more of a screwdriver). And yes, I put it in a salad dressing mixer because I had nothing else on hand that would do the trick.

{5} After a tantrum that could be heard from space, Edith dressed herself in pajamas and passed out in her little recliner. After her power nap she awoke in an infinitely better mood. We are reinstating nap time for her to see if that helps take the edge off things.

Linking up with KatieAprilAndreaNarci and Erika!


  1. HA! That sounds like how my son will lose his first tooth!!! He discovered this week he has a loose one. Here we go!

  2. I'm cracking up about the tooth story!


  3. A kid's gotta do what a kid's gotta do, right?!
    I've resorted to drinking in a parking lot too. Sometimes you've just gotta.
