Mind Right Monday Linkup

me and the kids

How are you girls?!

Me? I’m excellent.

Getting a lot handled down here in Florida, and I’ll give you an update later on all my transitions, but things are moving fast and I’m psyched and scared, and happy and terrified all at once.

The kids are doing great down here. My family is loving them up, and taking them off my hands a bunch. This past week I got to meet a bloggy friend I’ve “known” for ages, Lyne of Anointed Heels…. who needs to update her damn blog….but I digress.

OK. I will give a full update for November 1st so no more of that here. Let me get to Mind Right Monday Linkup. Remember you can link up with Darrica, of Dear Darrica, and Danielle of Mamademics or right here at OKDani. (one day I will make a decent image with all of us on it. I swear!! LOL)

Happy Mind Right Monday morning girls! I’m coming to you today from sunny Florida!

I had to come down unexpectedly, and I’m so glad to be here. Roey and Kaya are enjoying all the extra love. And attention. I’m enjoying having a bit of a break from nonstop momming.

We had a pretty good flight even though the kid to parent ratio was 2:1. I will share on that later in the week.

Good Morning Girls!!

How was your week? I hope it was faaaanfreakintastic. Let’s see… a few highlights from the OKDani household…:

Roey did some cool artwork…I was impressed because it was the first time he drew a truck that actually looked like a truck!

He also had the coolest bathtime ever… John popped some glowsticks in the tub and Rohan was in heaven!

Kaya got a new dolly:


And she suffered the gender confusion of being a second child in a hand-me-down household:

I baked something from scratch!! You have no idea what a big deal this is. I’m no good with measuring and being precise with cooking so baking always annoyed me. Too exact. But yoooo….. these blueberry muffins tho?!

Happy Mind Right Monday ladies!!  I hope you had a great weekend! My weekend was pretty productive, and lookit…I gots a facelift!! Do you likey? Some more changes to come but already I love the feel of the place… coming along nicely I’d say. Can’t wait till it’s all done.

I stayed in and got some clearing out, cleaning up, and organizing done. Got a little bit of writing done this weekend too. Rohan was productive this weekend as well. He was teaching Kaya her letters and numbers for a minute. It was cute to watch. Then she touched one of his cars and he lost his damn mind.
