Oh Hey Friday!

April 24, 2015

Happy Friday! Let's do this!

{one} Hudson's Citrus Lane box arrived this week and again it was perfect timing! Citrus Lane is a monthly subscription service for little ones. I age Hudson up in the system by 6 months and we've always loved the little surprises inside...and Hudson LOVES getting a box in the mail! This month we go these Mini Fastbacks from Green Toys. We love all things Green Toys so Hudson was thrilled to see these little cars! We also got Wonderful Words book by Barefoot Books. All of our Barefoot Books have come from Citrus Lane and we love them all! Another big hit in our box was the Dino Lacing Cards by Stephen Joseph. These are great because Hudson is obsessed with dinosaurs and he thought lacing them was so fun! Finally, we got some Whole Grain Cookies from My Super Cookies. Hudson gobbled them up before I could try one, so I take it he liked them! Click here for 50% off your first box AND free shipping. You can cancel at any time!

{two} I have to share a funny story about Hudson this week. I picked him up from daycare on Tuesday and his teacher told me he had asked who had made a mess in the sandbox, and she said "the babies did it" meaning the younger kids who had just been outside playing. And Hudson replied "baby in mommy's tummy!" and she said "yes, that's right, there's a baby in your mommy's tummy" and then without skipping a beat Hudson said "daddy did it." And she about died laughing. Oh my word. This boy KILLS ME. (and yes, he is correct, daddy did it!)

{three} Thank you so much for loving and sharing this post. I'm a working mom so obviously that is my perspective....and I don't want to start a debate. I think both staying at home and working outside of the home are hard. Different but hard. A male co-worker of mine said something about my post that I thought really hit home. He said that although being a full-time stay at home parent is hard work there is another layer to choosing to work or needing to work while raising kids that can lead to a different kind of guilt and pain. So true. 

{four} It's been a long week for me. On Sunday night my back started hurting whenever I would walk and by Monday morning I couldn't walk without severe pain. I've been the the chiropractor and go back again today but it looks like relief may be a long way away. Please pray that I don't have this pain for the rest of my pregnancy. I have no idea how women survive on bedrest....I'm going crazy not being able to walk comfortably and it's only been a week!

{five} Thanks to my back and hip pain, I've been rocking this sexy belt. Don't be jealous.

And now the link ups....

  4. Um, Hudson is hilarious! And yeah, I remember that back pain all too well. I hope it chills out for you!

    And girl, your post about the working mom was the greatest one I've seen. ;) You are so right. There is something about wanting to work and having to work. There is also something about wanting to stay at home and having to stay at home. Could you imagine? Sheesh. Moms are my heroes for sure.

    Happy Friday, my dear!

  6. Awe! Poor baby with back pain! Hope it goes away ASAP! Hang in there!

  7. That Hudson story is just too cute! Definitely one to remember for one day:) "Daddy did it" - lol! Loved your Working Mom post this week, and think that, as moms, we should all try to support each other in whatever ways possible - whether we work in the home or out. Hoping your back pain eases very soon, sweet girl!

  8. Oh my gosh..."daddy did it" haha! That little boy is too smart for his own good!

  9. Just stumbled across your blog from a Five on Friday, and your story about Hudson was adorable! I hope your back lets up soon! And your article of working mom was so poignant.

  10. How sweet that a male coworker had such kind and supportive words about your Working Mom post! He sounds wise, he must be a dad ;)

  11. I just bought a sexy belt like that too. I kind hated to do it with only a few weeks left but my stomach feels SO heavy. I hope it helps!

  12. I just signed up for a Citris Lane box!! I have loved reading about yours that I just had to do it...and bonus, Ellies first one will be arriving just in time for her birthday!

  13. That story about Hudson is so funny! He sure is right... daddy did it! LOL. Too funny he didn't skip a beat and knew exactly what to say. I bet that made his daycare teachers day!
    I hope you start feeling better soon!!

  14. Oh dear, I lol'ed a bit with the daddy did it comment! I mean toddlers and their one liners! So entertaining. Hope you're feeling more comfortable, pregnancy, so fabulous and so un-fabulous wrapped in one:)! Happy weekend.

  15. Love your Citrus Lane haul. We did those boxes for a while, but quit when Mac was around 18 months...right around the time the boxes started getting really cool. I might need to reconsider and sign Mim up for them.
