Shortly after Liam was born, I was told to sign him up for the Irun4 program. Basically, it's an organization that matches up runners with children and adults with special needs. I finally got around to signing up, and Liam was matched with a beautiful young woman named Emily within hours. Emily runs for Liam, and we keep in touch several times a week on facebook. She wears an I Run 4 Liam shirt and she sent him a shirt to wear. Emily has a 5K today, and Liam is cheering her on! This is such a great program. If you are a runner or have a child with special needs, please consider signing up!
I never go to thrift stores. The last time I was in one was about a decade ago. Grant wanted to look for something yesterday afternoon, so we headed to our local store. As soon as I walked in, I found a Christmas dress for Lily that I saw in Costco in December. I was thrilled with this amazing find. Brand new, for $1.99!!!
Lexie brought home her class science project yesterday. A pair of guppies and some snails are now living in her room. Dylan had the same teacher two years ago, and did the same project. After he brought his home, we ended up with 40 guppies. They slowly devoured each other over the next few months, until we ended up with just one guppy. One guppy that still lives in his room. My husband referred to it as The Hunger Games. Here we go again!!!
I'm a huge believer in baby wearing. I wore all my babies. I tried a sling, a Moby Wrap, and a Baby Bjorn. I wasn't a big fan in the sling, but I loved my Moby Wrap for the newborn days. The most used carrier was the Baby Bjorn. After hearing rave reviews about the Ergo, I ordered one for Liam. I have only had it for a few days, but I'm in love! It's the best baby carrier I've ever used! It's incredibly comfortable, Liam loves it, it can be used in multiple positions up to 45 pounds, and I can discreetly nurse him (hello, hood!) in it!
The comments I hear and the looks directed my way when I take all 4 kids shopping alone are hilarious! But I'm going to be perfectly honest. The kids go easy on me. Taking them all out at once isn't as difficult as it sounds!
I'm linking up with Darci and the girls for Five On Friday!
