Weekend Shenanigans

I have a child who didn’t nap all weekend and woke up at 3am this morning. My favorite thing is, she fell asleep in the car on the way to school. Someone just hook me up to an IV of caffeine please. I got a call Friday that Zoe was running a high fever at daycare. After a doctor visit, it was determined that it was just a sinus infection. I don’t know if the antibiotic is contributing to her new hatred of sleep or what…but this mama is exhausted! Nothing got done this weekend, except a little laundry and the floors were cleaned. But Zoe was walking around with Goldfish crackers this morning, in an attempt to keep her occupied while I ran around trying to get us ready to go. I heard a few uh-oh’s and some giggles…soooooo I am guessing my floors are no longer clean lol.

This was when the Goldfish were still in the container. At least she was all smiles this morning!

Zoe’s daycare does Swim Fridays now for the summer. It is so cute seeing all the kiddos come in with their swim gear on. Zoe got her pineapple swimsuit here and it is on sale this week!

Saturday morning we met up with my dad, sister and nephews at Cracker Barrel for Father’s Day Breakfast with my dad. Aunt Tracy spoiled Zoe by holding her most of the time we were there. Zoe loved it of course!!! Our breakfast was mediocre at best, but the Smores Iced Latte I ordered to go was the bomb.com.

We had some errands to run after breakfast, and we stopped by Bargain Hunt in Pell City while we were out that way. We found two dresses for Zoe for $3 each and got started on our Christmas shopping! When we got home, we fed Zoe lunch and tried to get her down for a nap….but she wasn’t having it. So we played around the house and got in some outside fun before an Alabama Summer Thunderstorm rolled on in out of no where. 

Sunday morning, I made homemade biscuits and gravy for Father’s Day breakfast for Chris and then Zoe and I headed out to do the grocery shopping while Chris fixed our lawnmower and cut the grass. When we got back, we attempted to get Zoe down for a nap again with no success. So more outside play it was!

I made sweet potato gnocchi for lunch, and Chris had requested enchiritos for dinner. I found a recipe online and got to work. The food looked good, but it was just ok. The sauce was from scratch and it came out really bland. It definitely needs some tweaking. Maybe we will try them again but I will just do it my own way without following a recipe. We also had some orange chicken from Trader Joe’s this week that was so delicious!

After Zoe went to bed last night, we caught up on The Originals and watched some more Blue Bloods and called it a night. I have a feeling it is going to be a long Monday at work! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Linking up with Biana.

    Bless your heart – hope you’re able to get some sleep tonight! And I hope that Zoe is feeling better. Kid, you’ll regret NOT taking those naps one day. LOL! I need to cook some good meals this week! I’ve been so lazy in the kitchen (and everywhere, really) lately.

    looks like we both didn’t get any sleep! kayla seems to be sleeping like a baby ie. the NOT sleeping kinda way and girlfriend is nearly TEN. i am chalking it up to hormonal things or maybe i angered the sleep gods somehow. this is why when people ask “are you going to have another?” i respond with “LOLOLLLLLL”.

    praying that we both get some much needed sleep tonight. ps – as little sleep as Z got, she’s still next level adorable!

    I really hope you can get some sleep. Trying to function with little sleep feels nearly impossible. I remember when each of the boys got their hands on a container of puffs and a bag of goldfish and dumped them all over the floor and thought it would be funny to crush them. The things that amuse kids. Sending you all the coffee today! Sierra Beautifully Candid

    Sorry you haven’t gotten sleep. I am having the same issue, we it is my dog, not a kid, but I am ready for a full night’s sleep! She has woken up screaming last two nights. Um enchiritos were my favorite at Taco bell in college, totally forgot about those! Sounds like something I need to make soon. Have a good day!

    I’m sorry to hear she wasn’t feeling well on Friday, but looks like she was in good spirits for the rest of the weekend!! I hope you got an extra helping of the coffee this morning to keep you going! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    Sweet potato gnocchi??? OH MY WORD – that sounds amazing.
    Look at Zoe’s little bathing suit!
    Glad she just had a sinus infection & nothing more serious – even though that’s not fun either & I know your momma’s heart needs a break from fevers with your Princess!!!

    Total bummer about dinner on Father’s Day. I hope you can infuse more flavor and then share it later on. Did you eat the sweet potato gnocchi from TJ’s? We have had that many times. I am sorry that Zoe hasn’t been sleeping much. My girls didn’t nap well at all this weekend either.

    Sending you alllll the caffeine and hugs! Poor Z! Hopefully she’ll sleep better once she feels better. And swim Fridays?! How can I get in on that?! Fun!

    You poor mama! The boys went through some no sleep stages but they always would sleep again after they wore themselves out. Bless her heart, just wanna play all day mama! That pineapple swimsuit! Oh my cuteness! Hope it’s a restful night tonight!

  • Reply Emelia Lawrence June 18, 2018 at 7:28 pm

    poor girl- she will want naps in about 30 years HAHAHA. I love her little swimsuit and your latte sounds SO good!

  • Reply Audrey June 18, 2018 at 9:33 pm

    Oh Zoe girl! Keeping ya on your feet!! I hope this week brings some sleep for everyone! And maybe double dip into the coffee until you can recuperate on the weekend!

  • Reply ShootingStarsMag June 18, 2018 at 10:24 pm

    Oh gosh, lack of sleep is never fun, so I hope Zoe sleeps better this week! I’m glad nothing was too seriously wrong with Zoe either, but I hope she’s feeling better! Being any kind of sick is never fun. Her bathing suit is too cute -and how fun they have swimming days at school in the summer.

    Babycakes visited her grandparents last weekend, and her sleep schedule is HORRIBLE now that she is back home. I know it’s because they basically have no routine, compared to our fairly consistent one…but it suuuucks at the moment. Praying all these babies sleep tight soon!

  • Reply laura June 19, 2018 at 9:31 am

    But at least she’s cute right??!?! And WHAT?! Christmas shopping already?!? You are so on top of your game. And that orange chicken – so so so so good.

  • Reply StephTheBookworm June 19, 2018 at 2:05 pm

    Mmm biscuits and gravy is one of my favorites!
    Man, hard nights of sleep are TOUGH! Caleb is 3.5 and STILL has bad bouts of sleep. Sigh.

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders June 20, 2018 at 1:15 pm

    I swear you don’t realize how good you have it with your kids and sleep until they stop doing it! Izzy woke up consistently for a couple of nights two weeks ago and then it was Addy last week. Thankfully they’re back to normal, but I think that it was because they were so congested! Anyways, hopefully Zoe is on the mend and won’t wake up at 3AM again! Our daycare does splash pad Fridays with the next class up, and I can’t wait for the girls to do it! Babies in bathing suits are just too cute!

    Aww girlie I hope you get some sleep soon. Big hugs!

    Swim Friday sounds so cute and fun! Love Zoe’s shades!
