Jack and I had Little Gym and this time, Mimi joined us! Jack wasn't exactly feeling it since it was the first day of the fall classes and there were lots of new faces around. My shy boy takes a while to warm up to new people. After class we headed to Stride Rite to get him some "high tops" to support his ankles at the suggestion of his neurologist since we are still getting the walking thing down. I wish I had my camera ready to snap a picture of Jack's face when we put those shoes on him. Shoe lover just like this mama!
We really did not do much aside from normal chores - grocery store, laundry and a nap! Jason was hurting a little bit from his night of football watching with friends the night before so we all took it easy. I had to get up early the next day so we called it an early night.
For my day off, I rolled out of bed earlier than I do for work...what?!?! Luckily it was for something fun, otherwise I would have been pretty upset. I was modeling for a friend's new website. Allison has an amazing Etsy Store and is expanding what she currently sells into clothing in the coming months. Her first item is a great pair of one size fits all patterned leggings. Me, Shannon and Ashley were her models for the day. Trust me, I'm no model and am not trying to pretend to be one!
I think Allison was going for a "real people can wear these" look. Plus between Shannon (Size 0) and me (Size 10) we really proved that the leggings will amazingly fit all body types! We had a blast except for the fact that we were dripping with sweat because we were wearing leggings, sweaters, and boots in the August Houston heat!
We shot at several different spots around Houston, but the "drippy wall" was by far my favorite! I can not wait to see all of the shots that the amazing photographer, Paige of Awake Photography captured.
After the photo shoot and some lunch, Jason, Jack and I headed to our friend's house for their son's 2nd birthday party. They had some kiddie pools setup in their backyard so I dressed Jack in a swim diaper and swim outfit. He was feeling shy (surprise, surprise) so he ended up pretty glued to me most of the party. About an hour into it I picked Jack up off of my lap and realized I was soaking wet. I was hot and sweaty but this was like "wring me out" wet. I looked at my drink and Jack's cup and nothing had spilled. I was wearing animal print so you couldn't actually see anything...
I didn't know what it was until I smelled it. Hello diarrhea. Needless to say, we didn't stay for cake.
Two lessons learned - 1.) Swim diapers suck and 2.) Animal print is amazing
If I had been wearing a light color, it would have majorly uped the gross and embarrassing factor.
Our friend Sarah put it best saying that Jack just wanted the party to be the official End of Summer "Blow-Out." Well played Jack. Well played.
