When daddy's out of town on business, sometimes it's just easier to check into a local hotel on a Tuesday night and make it a little stay-cation. Because a change of scenery = keeping our sanity. And the complimentary happy hour and breakfast means two less meals I have to cook. And sorry front desk for the dozens of crank calls from my children. #icanttakethemanywhere

pavree : Wise woman.πŸ˜‰
babybluewren : ☎ Bahaha they look like they are having fun! Plus, you deserve a break too! 😘
meesiepieces : πŸ™Œwhat a fun idea!
ashleydoctor24 : Brilliant!
stylamamma : Clever mammaπŸ‘
crystalfrost : I was talking to friend about this just yesterday. I em was becoming the cost of holidaying away and she suggested we just have a 'holiday at home'. Set up the tent, cook outdoors, visit all our favourite rivers and beaches and eat out at restaurants. All for much less than the cost of an actual holiday!
foodandfitnessgirl : Lol what were the crank calls they made? Precious!!

Nine years ago this morning, all nine pounds of him pushed his way into this world with a force and determination he still holds to this day. He's strong-willed and so incredibly stubborn at times, it has me waiving the white flag. But it's that same drive and relentlessness I know will take him great places one day. Happy Birthday my baseball-loving, firstborn, my tall, string bean, old soul. I promise to learn more about baseball stats so we can have more in-depth conversations about the sport you love so much. But I still love you even more than that. #ourfirstbaseballgametogether

tanmcd : Happy birthday πŸ’™
brogstad : Happy birthday!! ❀️
tmasd : Feliz cumpleaños!!
laurabeardwood : happy birthday gorgeous boy β™‘
jojodaly : happy birthday! also, I was just listening to a podcast about how happy kids feel like their parents have "captured their heart" meaning they've invested time and energy in something their kid loves. so not just going to watch all of their baseball games but learning about and experiencing baseball together. so it sounds like you're doing an amazing job capturing his heart, mama ❀️❀️
pavree : Hope he has a wonderful bday!
jlmtree : So sweet. Happy birthday to your oldest boy. I have one that sounds very similar πŸ˜‰
leahsunshine : So fun! β™‘β™‘

When you don't have a fishing pole, you improvise and make one. A stick, some string, a hook and bread as bait -- and the crabs didn't know the difference.

leahsunshine : Woah so cool! We should go together! @threewildthings my post was right near my house! :)

Take me back to the weekend, filled with sunshine, saltwater and the sound of crashing waves (and daddy's much-needed hands, who helped wrangle these wild children). The polar opposite of this week, which involved a near panic attack when my 4-year-old (the risk taker) decided it would be cute to hide from me in a shopping mall for a full five minutes, which really felt like an hour (on a side note: I have faith in humanity again after an entire search party of helpful mall moms and retail store employees helped me hunt for him as I was in hysterics, until an elderly man found him hiding silently around the corner in an alcove). And then this afternoon, the littlest decided to lock himself in a bedroom, but couldn't figure out how to unlock the door. Is Mercury in retrograde? #pleasesendwine #ohwaitidontdrinkwine #pleasesendchampagne

babybluewren : Oh, my gosh...days/moments like that truly make your heart weak and your mind in a fog when it's so surreal but painstakingly frightening! I went through a different situation but one where every now and then I recall it and am reminded how precious and fragile my babes are. Sounds like this will definitely be an experience you won't soon forget. That Moon!!! I'm sure despite your need for a well deserved Mama verbal lashing of do's and don' hugged and kissed him like crazy. πŸ˜‚ 😩
jojodaly : omg I am seriously near tears reading this. I would have had a mother effing heart attack!!!!! do you think he understood his mistake when he saw your face??? ugh you poor mama😩 so glad everyone is okay! and I seriously hope mercury is in fact in retrograde because that would explain the complete shitshow my life has been the last few days😳
xindyvee : Oh gosh πŸ™ˆ. Sending you all the Sofia Coppola champagne, stat!
wyladesigns : We've had the door locking thing happen but he finally unlocked it himself. I turned the doorknob around so I'm sure it looks like I lock my kids in their room but really I'm just trying to prevent them from doing it!
lc905 : epppp 😳 glad all turned out well!
cakebabiesandlove : Omggggggg momma panic attack earned!! I'm ready to drink wine just reading this or champagne or a rum 😱😩😭😭😭😘😘😘
lica765 : Oh I would have paniced too! A parents worst nightmare😱 to bad you don't drink wine, you could use a glas or two after a week like thatπŸ˜„
lightlovers : Oh how terrifying! Sending lots of love and peaceful vibes and virtual champagne 🍷🍹🍸 This photo is gorgeous, love the footprints 😍

How can it be that you are three? Wasn't it just yesterday we were bathing in pink moonlight from that beautiful September Harvest moon hanging above us at dawn, your warm body nestled into mine as you nursed for the very first time? Happy third birthday my sweet, truck-obsessed Virgo, my smart, chatty boy. Now, will you please potty train? #mybabyisthree
mybabyisthree -
threewildthings : @emsiam Thank you! ❀️
threewildthings : @kdscope 😘😘
threewildthings : @wyladesigns I thought my guy was the last 3yo on earth who still isn't potty trained. Stubborn is his middle name. Just when I think we're almost there, he then refuses. Ugh. I figure they'll be potty trained eventually, right? I can't imagine them in diapers as teenagers. What would their friends think? 😜
babybluewren : Potty training πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚ Thomas is nearly three and still struggling too!!! Btw...your writing is beyond awesome.
babybluewren : And Happy Happy Birthday to your sweet babe and little Moon. His nickname always makes me think of "Moon Doggie" from Gidget...whom I always have adored. Side
mafffin : Happy birthday Moon! 🎈
jennacesolini : ❀️
wyladesigns : @threewildthings oh I know it, and I know you can't force it but it makes me think of this kid we had when I worked at a daycare, he was an extremely tall, lanky 4-year-old and we couldn't lift him up on the changing table anymore so our director pleaded with his mom to get him potty trained and sent some DVDs home with her and he finally did it. My son is by no means tall or lanky but I'm afraid that'll be us next year! πŸ˜‚

He's required to practice for 20 minutes every night. Let's just say it's a really long 20 minutes. 😝#ourearswillneverbethesame. In all seriousness, I'm thankful public schools are still teaching music and I can't wait for his orchestra concert in the spring. #violin

Finding this little dock and saltwater inlet virtually in our backyard this morning has been the highlight of our Wednesday. Now, to get some fishing poles for these guys.
houseofcanterbury : Wow, incredible! You have the best of both worlds it seems... City with a splash of country. Love it!
makeitadouble : Beautiful!!! I hope you all found a perfect spot to settle in!
jojodaly : oh my goodness this made my heart skip a beatπŸ’— just gorgeous!
everlylorine : completely perfect!!!! Hope you are all doing great!!
adrianasheros : Beautiful!
leahsunshine : We literally just bought the boys all fishing poles when we were in utah :)
aimt11 : I recognize that dock. There's also a great skate park on the hill that the boys would probably love.
threewildthings : Thanks for the tip @aimt11! They would love that! 😊
