In Like a Lion

Published on: Author: April

Well March may have had considerably milder temps up here in Michigan than we’re used to, but this March was still “in like a lion,” for me.

Life has been almost maniacally busy and stressful. There are too many things to name, but a few things are that: We are refinancing our house and it was taking forEVer and taking a lot of my time chasing down paperwork. Our computer broke, leaving me blogless for two weeks. My iPhone broke and wasn’t covered under warranty. I barely got the phone in the first place because they’re so expensive–it was a birthday/replace-old-breaking-phone combo gift. And then I had to buy it again? Not. Cool. I was so stressed out about a dozen other things that I was constantly tired and therefore too exhausted to carry on normal tasks, which then added to the mountain.


I am not sure when/if life will return to “normal.” Hopefully soon.

So, in lieu of wordy blog fodder, here’s a little photo show for you of HAPPY events of March. :)


We checked out the Butterfly exhibit at Meijer Gardens. O loved searching for caterpillars on the plants.


Meijer Gardens has a beautiful orchid display, honoring Anne Frank, I believe.


Izzy went on her first swing ride and loved it from moment one. She's my adventurous girl!


Izza also got a little cuter last month. She does that every month. I'm waiting for my camera to break from the cuteness explosion.


O made a cute bird craft at MOPS. The sweet girl tried sharing the craft with her baby sister, who immediately ripped it up. O was so forlorn.


She was forlorn until we did our OWN bird craft together, adding a Daddy bird, a nest, and four eggs. On popsicle sticks. Problem solved.


And so you don't think I'm a complete craft slacker, I did manage to make these burp cloths for a friend having a baby in April. The gender is a mystery so this is my attempt at gender neutral. Ha!

  1. Dear April,

    I’m sorry for all of your March stress and hope that YOUR month brings some peace.

    Olivia, some things just aren’t meant to be shared – no matter HOW cute your sister is. :-)

    I love the burp cloths. I had a dream two nights ago that I was 8 months pregnant. So, maybe you should get going on more burp cloths. HA! (I hope uncle Tom sees this.)

  2. Uggg. Remember that I have two kiddos here that would LOVE a playdate (and thus give you a few hours of kid free rest). :o)

  3. Sorry for the stressful month… My iPhone broke too and had to get a new one.. Got a new oven too. Expensive month at the o house too!

    Happy early bday to isabel!!! :)

    Hopefully we can see eachother soon and the kiddos can play :) xo

  4. Sorry life has been so stressful and busy. I know the feeling (but for different reasons!). Really sorry about your iPhone. I love mine. I hope Apple takes care of you on that one. I have found that they usually do. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your burp cloths!
