Wednesday {Randoms}

Oh weekend, why aren't you here yet?!?  It's only Wednesday and it feels like it's been a long week already.  I think it's beacause Monday was a Holiday.

I saw these on Pinterest, and I thought they were cute and wanted to share =)  

Can I just tell you all how much I love Alyx's curls!?!  I hope she keeps them forever!

Her hair is completely crazy at all times...and I'm certain it will never be long enough for ponytails...but the curls...I'm in love <3

Emma had some really cute help yesterday afternoon with her homework...

She layed there the entire time with Emma while she did her homework.  =)
I just have to say how excited I was when Emma brought her math homework yesterday...they are learning the traditional way of multiplication this week...and this makes me ohhh sooo happy!  The new way of math aka Common Core may work, but not for this momma!  So for her to bring this math home, I was excited! ha! =)

Have a great Wednesday all!! =)


  1. I don't think I would know how to help my kids with their schoolwork with the new common core stuff... at least from what I have been hearing.

    1. I know there are many people who like common core...however I'm not one of them. I've watched videos on it, and read about it...and I still dislike it. It's very frustrating when Emma does common core and it takes her an hour and ends with tears over it. And then she brings home normal math and has it done in 10 minutes and is so proud of herself. I've shared my frustration with her teacher, and he feels the same way as us, but unfortunately his hands are tied and he has to teach it the way the school teaches it. I always pray it goes back to the "normal" way! Haha

  2. Weeks with a Monday holiday are always the longest! This is the never ending week, for sure.
    Alyx's curls - omg - love those!!
    How sweet that your cat cozied up with Emma while doing homework! And, did you add more Paris stuff to Emma's room? I'm loving those Paris inspired pillows!
