My niece is staying with us while my stepdad recovers from open heart surgery so I’m going to gave to make this really quick as I do have to get to bed if I’m going to make it to the 6 a.m. class.

These two have been iPad buddies all weekend.

It’s so stinkin’ cute.

I couldn’t get them interested in helping me making muffins but they were perfectly willing to observe while snacking on apples.

He loved them!

I actually made a batch yesterday, too, and they’re already gone. I’ll post the recipes asap! It’s a keeper.

Daddy wrestling session that ended with an injury, of course.

Lunch! 20140223_6308

I was so busy making their sandwiches I forgot to make something for myself! So I waited until nap time and whipped up a salad.

Nap time.

Chore talk.

He’s doing great!

We cleaned up throughout the day and then decided to hit a local bounce and play place. I needed to get the kids out of the house.

This is the 2-year-old “helping” his cousin “tie her shoes.”

It was adorable! Even though the little stinker can’t even get his own shoes on.

We spent 2 exhausting hours bouncing, playing and driving.

Then we came home and cooked dinner, gave baths, and shuffled them all to bed.

How do you guys with 3 kids do it? I’m EXHAUSTED!

What Why
Homemade Butternut Muffin I was on a muffin mission. Will post recipe asap!
Recovery Shake (almond milk, maple syrup, whey protein, cocoa powder) Post-workout drink I bring to the gym with me and drink while stretching
Spinach salad with strawberries, feta and walnuts I have spinach and kale coming out of my ears. Somebody’s got to eat it.
Handful of homemade trail mix and a few chips Out with kids and having stomach rumbles
Mussels, chicken thigh, brown rice, roasted cauliflower Dinner
Chocolate Chip VitaTop and tea I really wanted something sweet.
Snapea Crisps Stomach rumbling while posting this.

    That’s nice that your niece is staying with you for a while. That little tykes care reminded me of when my oldest son was his age, he put my car/house keys in the trunk of it! I was frantically searching for them, never found them, got new keys made, only to find them in there a few weeks later! LOL

    I hope your step dad is doing well. Those sort of things can be so stressful and I’m sure it is such a relief to your mom that you are so helpful. Your niece is probably loving every minute of it! I definitely felt the pinch most going from 2 to 3 kids…when I went from 3 to 4 I think I was just too numb to care!
