Love this Laugh....

BEDTIME


Okay, so last night, without effort, Molly randomly slept in her toddler bed! Just like any of her other big transitions, there was no fuss and I now know that it is because she was ready for it. Trust me, we have tried before and "NOT READY" would be an understatement. Hahah!

We did our normal nighttime routine, and instead of lifting her into the pack and play (we had to return the crib for a recall...), she just got into bed and I left, not to her from her until 8 AM. Problem with toddler beds? At 8AM she was in my face in our room. HAHAHH! But it worked! Could be a fluke on a tired night, but if I go off of past experiences with change, this will be a done deal.

ps - so being that it wasn't the plan to do this last night, I hadn't thought it through too much. I mean, door open, door closed? Molly's door opens to the stairs... If she wakes in the middle of the night, her room is pitch black, what to do? What will happen in the morning? Well, we dove in and figured it out. I put a night light in her room after she fell asleep. For the first night, I did keep the door closed because I had no idea what to expect and I would rather have heard her crying in her room than wondering around in the dark in the house. When Matt got up nice and early, I cracked her door open and next thing I know, Molly was smiling in my face at 8 AM. Hahah!

Man, being a mom is a never ending adventure. I mean, I am fascinated by everything we go through. I have certainly never done any of it before... she has never done any of it before. But we sure figure it out, don't we? Pretty cool this Mom business....

It Grows on Trees...


So one fun sides of my job is that I get to decorate the gym for the fall!! (I think I have my boss fooled here, she calls this "work"...). I made this candy corn tree for the front desk and I am not sure I want to part with it quite yet! I also made a garland out of candy corn. It is surprisingly durable! (Garland took entirely too long for words!! If I wasn't stuck in a car for 7 hours, there is no way I would have finished it.) I will post pictures of the gym later, but I wanted to get this up! I was inspired by an article in a Fall magazine. I am excited about the seasons changing and I am going to make it a goal to dive into decor projects this year! I plan on going all in. HAH! Fun!

PRE PRE PRE SCHOOL!




Happy Wednesday! (Survivor Night!!!) Hoped to post these sooner, but this week has been great and crazy all in one. Last Friday was Molly's first day of her Pre, Pre School. She goes to St. Anne's Day School, P.M.O. (Parent's Morning Out) program on Fridays. Really neat! It is from 8:30-12:30 - she has her own teachers and classmates and loves it. The deal was sealed when she walked in and Mickey was painted on the wall!

Willie Nelson Song

...On the road again...
Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We're the best of friends.
Insisting that the world keep turning our way... yes our way.

I just can't wait to get on the road again!

Off to our College Buddie's wedding! Fun time ahead this weekend....

Loss for Words??





I really am at a loss for words on how great today was for the three of us! Molly met Mickey... Nuff said!! Day 1 of our Disney adventure couldn't have gone any better. Magic kingdom was amazing... not crowded and true happiness for McMollerson. (true happiness for me when my ice cream cone - my one true obsession besides diet coke - had Mickey ears on it!) Believe it or not, one of our favorite attractions was the Haunted Mansion. The amount of time and planing that goes into pulling off an attraction like that is amazing!!! We marveled at it. The highlight, of course, was meeting Mickey himself after a tour of his house. Molly was so excited and when it was finally her turn, she slowly, and "shyly" (if even a word??) walked over to him. You can even see in the picture, as she was hugging Minnie, she was staring Mickey down. Aaahhh! Great, great day. Spent the evening at the Polynesian Review here at the resort and in the pool... way way fun! Thanks for checking in on us! Having a ball here...
