Friday, like every day, started off with a little Kaiden time. I love cuddling with him on the couch. Then I went grocery shopping. For some reason, I ended up with like 8 bags which meant four round trips to get all our stuff upstairs. I was so tired afterwards!

After putting everything away, I took a call with my boss and did some work.

The rest of the day involved a short nap (for Kaiden), some Frozen (because I just couldn’t say no to his sweet request), and pizza for dinner.

I’m sharing the ‘recipe’ on my IG page today!


Saturday was interesting because I definitely fell asleep on the couch the night before and only made my way to our bed at 1 am. Where was Vishnu you may be wondering? He was working a moonlighting shift at the hospital. This is what happens when he isn’t home! This totally messed me up because I woke up at 6 totally exhausted and unable to fall back asleep. On top of that, I started my period. Recipe for disaster!

BUTTT…it ended up ok, other than all of us being tired. I was a little out of it most of the day. Kaiden didn’t nap, which left him cranky by the end of the day. And Vishnu was exhausted from his 14 hour shift as well.

We did end up having fun goofing around the house. Kaiden may have asked for Frozen again to which I said N.O. Ha! Luckily, he understood!

Other than that, the day was kinda…normal. Kaiden has been moving into threenager territory lately, and while it’s annoying, I still think he’s the sweetest little boy ever. I could do with a little less whining, fewer meltdowns, and no bedtime shenanigans (i.e. calling me back into his room at least 3x). But I LOVE HIM TO PIECES!


Sunday, Father’s Day, started with breakfast. We then got ready to head outside to kick the soccer ball around and hunt for sticks (K’s fav thing to do right now).

We then came home and ate breakfast for lunch – hash browns, biscuits, and scrambled eggs – because our dad loves breakfast foods! A huge hit!

The rest of the day was pretty low-key. We talked to our own dads and hung out at home reading books, kicking balls, and generally wreaking havoc. HA!

I did manage to squeeze in a little nap that was much needed. Don’t know why, but even after a full night’s rest, I was EXHAUSTED!

Anyways, that was our Father’s Day 2020 weekend in a nutshell.

For those of you who may be new readers, I share a lot of our weekends in a recap style post for two reasons – 1. I’m selfish and love having a written recollection of our days with Kaiden and 2. To show that not everyone lives a glamorous life. Normal is beautiful and normal is good and normal is magical in its own way. Remember that!
