Spongebob & Stitches & Cold Snaps, Oh My!

Since the weather has been so cold & unpredictable lately I rescheduled an engagement shoot I had originally planned for Saturday, and brought the kids to see the new SpongeBob movie instead. The little family-owned theatre we usually go to was PACKED.  Usually there are only a handful of families at the kid-friendly matinees... but this weekend I think everyone had the same idea. STAY INSIDE! 

The kids had a great time! By the time we got home, it was almost time for supper. We hadn't thought much about what to make, so we ended up pulling some homemade pulled pork chili out of the freezer! Delish! Especially with fresh bakery buns! 

We had planned on a pretty low key evening, got in our pajamas early and were about to settle in to watch Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day when Memphis accidentally cut his hand on an open can.  Everyone stayed very calm, but there was a fair amount of blood... "I think he's going to need stitches"... I got dressed quickly and rush to the hospital. So happy it's only a couple minutes away.

I'm always afraid I'm going to come off as an overreacting mom.... but sure enough, 3 stitches later and we were on our way back home...

We managed 9 years before needing to rush anyone to the hospital for stitches, so I count myself lucky. Can scratch that off our "firsts" list! And maybe it's a boy thing, but as we were walking out of the hospital, he turned to me and said "Oh man! I can't wait to show my friends!!" 

Sunday, with a wind chill of -43, we didn't do much. I got some stuff down around the house, hubby made some yummy homemade hummus and salsa and the kids bummed around most of the day in their pajamas!  It's nice to hibernate once in a while!

How was your weekend? Did anyone do anything special for Valentine's Day?

  1. glad he's okay. heading to the hospital is never an over reaction I think. Sometimes you just can't tell

  2. I had a pretty low key valentine's weekend our weather has been SO cold and snowy and wintery. I've been spending as much time as possible hibernating indoors. I wish there was a little family run theatre near me, the only movie going option we have is the giant cinneplex 30 minutes away and I can honestly say I do not enjoy going to movies there. Hope it warms up where you are!

  3. How scary! At least he will have a great story to tell his friends.
