Summer is here and it’s well, HOT. HA 😉 That might be an understatement. I’m not sure where y’all are – but it gets pretty toasty here. I’m sure nothing like Arizona, but you know, hot for me. And well, currently super pregnant so you can either find me in the pool or in the house enjoying the A/C. Been feeling a little bad lately because it’s been a whole lot of being indoors and kind of not-so-fun Mom status over here.
A few days ago though, I said let’s do something fun. We pulled this fun teepee she has out of the garage (because well, setting up for a nursery and moving, etc. it’s been kind of pushed away) and we made a little “fort” indoors. She has been asking to bring this teepee in for months, so I decided lemme be a cool Mom for a moment, because I swear I say no more often than not lately, and well – she was stoked. I set it up in the corner of our living room, she gathered all the pillows she could find and shoved them in there and around the outside. And then I pulled a table over close and topped it with books and a yummy smelling Glade® 3-Wick Candle in the Clean Linen® scent.
We kept it there the entire day – ate lunch in there, snuggled and watched shows and she kept saying “would you like to come to my house?” which I thought was the cutest thing ever. She even made a little “mailbox” at one point and was putting things in there. I love watching her little imagination go to work and honestly, it’s nice to say yes sometimes. Especially while super pregnant and with things changing like crazy, I feel like I’ve slacked a little bit so I think this day was exactly what we both needed. Now, I’m just counting down the days to our “yes” day before baby brother comes! I’m going to take her out for a day all about her, where whatever she wants to do (within reason) we do! She has no idea it’s coming and I think it’ll be a big hit. It’s fun to let loose and be a cool parent every once in awhile 😉 Am I right?
Also, a huge shout out to the Glade® PlugIns® Scented Oil Warmer, because its making this whole “staying indoors” this summer a real treat. We plugged it in a couple of weeks ago in the living room and you guys – it’s so good! Literally every time Marcus and I walk in the doors, we both are like, it smells so good in here! Plus it’s nice that it’s just an automatic thing that just does its thing and I don’t have to think about it. I just bought another one to put upstairs too in the loft. The Clean Linen® and Hawaiian Breeze® scents are for sure my favorites! You can grab them at a Walmart near you and thank me later. 😉
