Our 5 days without daddy - Part I

I'm going to be documenting our 5 days without daddy so when he comes back he can see everything we did while he was gone! So here is Part I Feb. 23-25 and then Part II will be of Feb 26-27.

Thursday {February. 23} - Daddy left bright and early to head to the airport to board a plane and fly to Texas for 5 days.  He'll be doing a little bit of working and a little bit of playing.  So the girls and I are staying behind to fend for ourselves with the help of my brother.  Daddy use to go on air shows quite often and was gone for 5 days at a time, but when I had Keira he decided that he would only do home shows so that he didn't have to be away from us.  So this is the first time in 14.5 months that he'll be gone for this long.  Bye daddy we'll miss you while your gone for these 5 days.  Since the weather is suppose to be nice I'm hoping to get out of the house and have some fun with the girls.  Maybe since daddy gets to go have fun we can talk Uncle Josh into doing something fun with us too.

Once Daddy left I tried to go back to sleep but that was shortly interupted when I heard a little voice say "mommy you awake".  So Kaylee came in and I turned the TV on for her and she watched TV while I closed my eyes until I heard Keira about 45 minutes later.  We then got up and came downstairs, ate breakfast and then the girls played while I caught up on my blogs.  I then joined the girls and we colored on the chalk board, Kaylee showed off her basketball skills and I did Keira's 15 month photoshoot and she was a character today.  After that we collected some toys and made our way outside.  It was a beautiful 70 degrees today so I knew we had to soak it all in.  The girls enjoyed running around and being free outside.  We came back in at around 11:45 for I could get the girls ready for their nap.  The girls took a great nap and while they were napping I started working on ruffle pants for Kaylee and I got a call from Daddy saying he landed in Texas and he would call me later. Kaylee's pants turned out TOO CUTE!! (post coming soon)

Once the girls woke up from their nap they had a snack and then played some while I tried to figure out what to have for dinner.  We had chicken, rice and yummy.  After dinner the girls watched some cartoons before heading to bed.  I relaxed on the couch watching some TV before I headed upstairs to go to bed.  I contiplated all day if I would snag Kaylee out of her bed to come in bed to sleep with me.  I decided against it and I would be ok sleeping by myself.  I hate sleeping by myself, when you sleep next to someone for 10 years its hard when their not there.  First day without daddy went good.  Ask me that again in a few days and see if it's still going good without him!

Friday {February 24} The girls let me sleep in til 7:30 which was a nice change from Kaylee coming in the past 2 days at 6am.  Although I was awoken by Keira at 4am whining....I waited before going into their room to see if she would stop which she did.  But mommy on the other hand spent the next 45 minutes trying to go back to sleep after that.  I'm a little tired today.  We'll probably be heading outside again since it'll be such a beautiful 70 degree day again.  Maybe we'll head down to the park.

Once I got the girls up we came downstairs to eat breakfast and watch some cartoons before we went back upstairs for me to give the girls a bath.  I hate the bathtub in the master bathroom cause it has doors on it that are in the way when trying to wash the girls.  But the girls have fun so that's all the matters.  After bath time we got dressed and came back downstairs to hang out and figure out what were doing the rest of the day. 

We just hung out the first part of the day inside the girls played nicely today and went so much better than yesterday.  On Thursday Kaylee was testing her limits beyond belief.  But today was a lot better, thank god!  The girls went down for a nap and I just relaxed.  I wasn't in the mood to sew so I just sat my lazy ass on the couch and watched TV.  After about 3 hours Kaylee made her way downstairs and since it was so gorgeous outside I took Kaylee and some chalk and we went and had some fun.  While Kaylee was playing, UPS made a stop at our house to drop off the girls flower girl dresses and OMG do they look so adorable in them!!  We are all in Jason's brother's wedding in April.  After the UPS guy came we came inside and Keira was awake.  We had a snack before Kaylee left to go to Grandma's for her Friday over night stay.  I made pizza for dinner, Keira & I watched a little Jurassic Park before it was bedtime.  I put her to bed and then changed the chanel to watch Say Yes to the Dress.  I relaxed, talked to the hubby before he went to bed (since he's 2 hours ahead) and then I made my way to bed.  Hoping these next 3 days fly by.  The girls enjoy when I talk to daddy cause they get to talk to him too.

Saturday {February 25} Kaylee spent the night at Grandma's so it was just Keira and I until Kaylee got back home.  Usually when Kaylee spends the night at Grandma's Keira sleeps in till 9-9:30 but not this morning, she must have been to excited and wanted to see mommy cause she was up at 6:30.  A little to early for mommy so I let her play in her crib for about 30 minutes before I went in to get her.  We came downstairs ate some breakfast and watched some cartoons.  She's such a slow eater when she watches cartoons in the morning.  Since Kaylee got some mommy time alone yesterday to play chalk while Keira was still napping it will be nice to have mommy time with Keira.  We played with blocks, built towers and read some books....the girl LOVES her books.  Kaylee got home about 45 minutes before nap time.  I talked with Jason's mom for a little bit, I wanted to put on Kaylee's flower girl dress and show to Jason's mom to see if she thought it needed to be altered and while I started to take Kaylee's clothes off she threw the BIGGEST tantrum, I mean this was tantrum of all tantrums!  It could have been due to her waking up at a quarter a 6 that morning or maybe she was just being a stinker.  So I managed to get her dress on his mom said it looked fine (she was screaming and stomping her food the whole time).  Grandma said her good byes and I was left with 2 grumpy kids.  I put the girls down for a much needed nap and had some lunch.  My intention was to lounge around and watch TV while they napped, well I got bored and headed upstairs to make some ruffle pants for Keira.  I was having problems with my sewing machine for some reason and was only able to get one of the legs done before I got super frusterated and stopped for the day.

The girls woke up from their nap and I thought that once Kaylee took a nap she would be in a better mood but NO, yesterday she tested her limits beyond belief and was NOT listening at all, was being mean to Keira and wasn't sharing at all!  Yesterday was a rough day!  We ate some dinner and watched a movie with Uncle Josh before I put the girls to bed.  I had to go upstairs once cause Keira was screaming up there, when I got up there her leg was stuck in between the bars.  Kaylee had taken off her jammies and her underwear.

FUNNY STORY:  This last week when we go to bed I go in and check on the girls, well I've been getting a surprise everytime I've gone in there.  Kaylee goes to bed fully clothed, well to my surprise I open the door and the kid is buck naked and passed out.  So somewhere in a 2 hour period she takes all her clothes off and then passes out!  This kid kills me! 

Any advise on how I can keep her clothes on??????

After putting the girls to bed I came back downstairs and watched Lion King with my brother.  I ended up falling asleep on the couch since Keira woke me up at 6:30.  I was beat, so I headed upstairs to bed.


  1. Our neighbor friends little boy (i think he is about 2 1/2) kept stripping naked at bedtime, too. Silly kids! They have a video monitor and he would do it right away so they saw him and would go back in and get him dressed I think. I would say if she wants to sleep naked, let her, ha! Probably will be one of those things she'll grow out of sooner or later :)

  2. Your girls are sooo adorable!!! Looks like you guys are at least having some fun!! =)

  3. One of my neighbors ducktaped her kiddo's diaper on! :)

    Anyway, was following you on ig but not here so now I'm your newest and have some catching up to do!

    Hope you have a great week!

  4. I always get so much more done when my husband isn't home, although we miss him. I love the bathtime pics, so cute!!!

  5. What a sweet idea to document your days like this! Such precious pictures. :)
