Barre Talk

Thursday, May 29, 2014

Yesterday I had the pleasure of babysitting Knox for two hours while my sister ran a few errands. And in those two hours I'm pretty sure we did more than I've done in two weeks. It was exhausting. At one point he called me a "doo-doo face" because I wasn't playing "dogs" like he wanted. I told him that was a pretty bold statement for a boy who's middle name should have been Skid Marks McGee. Kidding. But not really. I know that's pretty gross. But here's the thing about toddlers, they're pretty gross. And if you're a mom, or someone who has have ever been around little kids, I'm sure you get this.

Knox is a clean kid, don't get me wrong. But little kids in general are just sticky gooey messes. I gave him a fudgesicle and two seconds later it looked like he had deliberately painted that thing all over his face. He had fudgesicle behind his ear. I don't even know how. At one point I caught him eating a French fry he found in his pocket.

Oh to be three again.

But anyway, I'm about to do a big old photo dump on you from the past few days. Let's start with a few from my mom and sister's new barre studio in Norfolk they're opening this weekend, Bella Barre. I am beyond jealous about this place and the fact they are going to have access to it whenever they want.













And that's been a little bit of life the past few days. Beers, lake, pool, puppies, pretty much all of my favorite things.

Now it's time to write a few new jokes for tomorrow. I am truly so excited to see those of you that are coming to the Funny Bone! Excited/nervous/freakingout...

And PS congrats to Jenna Newsome for winning my bday giveaway. Your loot is headed your way!

  3. I've always wanted to take a Barre class, but I tried a YouTube one once and didn't last five minutes.. so I am rather discouraged. Congrats to your mom and sister for opening one though!! Love the photo dump pictures!

  21. I have four kids and I still can't figure out how their faces get so dirty. They're trying to get a round popsicle into a larger round mouth. It should not miss nearly that often.

  27. What a BOD!! Do you have any health posts or exercise tips on here? I'll def need them to get my pre-pregnancy bod back. Oh, and I need more stories about the grossness of little boys seeing as I'm going to have one soon. It's probably a good thing that I talk about poop more than the average 27-year-old. Never thought I'd write THAT sentence!

  28. I babysit my niece whenever she comes back from Australia and I could totally understand when you said that they're pretty gross... I once came home from school with a living experiment of powder, cologne, chocolate, and lotion in one of the containers in my room...

    anyway, I loved your pictures!
