These are a few of my favorite things...

Top Ten favorite things this month

Ah, gratitude...

These were a few of my favorite things this month and the month isn't even over yet....

Ah, gratitude.... Yes, I said it twice.

p.s. stay tuned for the song at the end of the post. I'm going somewhere with this...
1) Going to the Natural History Museum with Josh. Boy, was that dinosaur scary. 


Dinosaurs roaring with big teeth and bone

2)The Butterfly Pavilion exhibition at the NHM. One butterfly actually went up to Josh's face and touched him. I told him he got a butterfly kiss. That made him happy.

Butterfly kisses and naps on a stone


3) Taking pictures of flowers, lots of them. I had alot of opportunities this month. Spring is in the air!

4) Home improvement. Spring break is not only a good time for fun, but a great time for hard labor, bwah-ha-ha!!!

Little children working in hard labor fashion

5)Dodger Games, enough said...
7:10 Dodger games, weeknights, it's my passion


6)Swimming in the pool with all the items necessary for a good time.

Octopus floaties and balls and...
those things (snorkels, haha)...


7)Fun and educational field trips to a farm with your classmates and mommy!

When there are too many kids and the field trip's too long... and I'm feeling tired...

8) Blood moon... This was a highlight this month of April but unfortunately I missed it (I was asleep) and therefore, I do not have a picture of it. However, I'm happy that it happened. 

9)Easter Egg hunt.

10) Playing catch with Josh.



A fun and turbulent Thursday for this spring break-y Sweet Monday Mommy...
 

 
 
Now, here's the song I promised you:
(sing it to "My favorite things" and yes, I'm a dork)

Dinosaurs roaring with big teeth and bone
Butterfly kisses and naps on a stone
Bright yellow flowers in time for spring fling
These are a few of my favorite things 

Little kids working in hard labor fashion
7:10 Dodger games, weeknights, it's my passion
Octopus floaties and balls and those things
These are a few of my favorite things
 
When there are too many kids and the field trip's too long and I'm feeling tired
 
I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel---
so uninspired!
 
 
I know what you're thinking, don't quit my day job.

Someday

Gonna Get Over You
Sara Bareilles





Goodbye

Should be saying that to you by now, shouldn't I?
Laying down the law that I live by,
Well, maybe next time

I've got a thick tongue,
Brimming with the words that go unsung
I simmer and I burn for a someone, 

the wrong one

And I tell myself to let the story end,
My heart will rest in someone else's hand
My 'why not me?' philosophy began,
And I say


Ooh, how am I gonna get over you?
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday, oh I wish you'd want me to stay
I'll be alright, just not tonight,
But someday...


Maybe 

It's a vicious little word that can slay me
Keep me when I'm hurting 

You make me
hang from your hands


Well, no more,
I won't beg to buy a shot at your back door
If I make it at the thought of you, what for?


That's not me anymore...


I'm not the girl that I intend to be

I dare you darling, just you wait and see
But this time not for you but just for me


  and I say

 

Ooh, how am I gonna get over you?
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday, oh I wish you'd want me to stay
I'll be alright, just not tonight,
Someday


Say it's coming soon
Someday without you
All I can do
Is get me past the ghost of you


Wave goodbye to me
I won't say I'm sorry


I'll be alright
once I find the other side of someday




Ooh, how am I gonna get over you?
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday, oh I wish you'd want me to stay
I'll be alright, just not tonight,
Someday 






A thoughtful Tuesday,
Sweet Monday
