Working Weekend

 I worked way too hard this weekend. I got the car washed....that is actually a picture of me....I always wash my car in a bikini and high heels!

 I officially got my 26.2 sticker added to my car, I picked up the sticker at the Des Moines Marathon expo last fall. I lost if for several weeks after I tucked in into a book that I was reading.....obviously I need to read more. BUT I found it and it is sprucing up my '03 Hyundai!  Let's be honest...the car needed a little sprucing!

I took the boys to the zoo for a couple of hours on Sunday. We had decent weather and we needed to get outside for a bit. It is nice to have a world class zoo only a few minutes away!!

The boys did a good job at the zoo! Wes was a trooper. He talked the whole time!! 

And I mean the whole time.
After taking the boys to the park and seeing Wes interact with others....we have decided it is time to teach him about Stranger Danger. He walked up to a mother and her two boys and proceeded to talk their ears off. It is nice that he is so personable and friendly....but going up to adults who are complete strangers makes me nervous. I have worked for Child Protective Services for too many years to be naive.  We've gotta find a happy medium....teach him about friendly versus creepy people, instill a little caution, warning signs, etc. Do all of this while still maintaining his innocence and friendly disposition. Sigh....parenting is tough work!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to look at my TEAM In Training page. Another big thank you to those who donated. Your support means the world to me!

Good luck with teaching Wes the difference between good/evil. It’s a tricky, no doubt.

I also always wash my car in a bikini and high heels. In my dreams.

It's fantastic that you can already go to the zoo. It's still really cold over here. Although my daughter has grown up, I would love to go to the zoo with my family.

Hi Olga....High Heels is the only way to go when washing your car :)
