This week, we've played with bubbles.

We've attended our final mini session music class (and tried on the famous spider hat that I have pictures of both Sean & Mackenzie wearing from when they took this class too).

There were times with friends, and quiet time with naps.
(Mackie finally went back to daycare on Wednesday once he was fever free).

We saw more friends, and even went for an hour & a half walk today.

Sean helped me make 112 meatballs (double recipe) for our guests coming for Passover next week. Sean made me promise that I'd wait for him to come home from school to make them, so I did. He was an awesome helper. He's really quite good at rolling meatballs.

Happiness is....
♥ No longer having to go back to the Children's Hospital for follow-ups. We were cleared yesterday from having to go back to see Respirology and we're also weaning Quentin off the Zantac. Quentin's also 12 lbs 1.5 oz now (he gained over half a pound last week, my little piggy!)
♥ Finding a handbag you thought you no longer had.
♥ Having healthy snacks a friend.
♥ Baking with my son.
♥ The Habs winning Game 1 of the 1st round of the playoffs tonight.
♥ Spring Cleaning.
♥ Catching up on some magazine reading.
♥ Being almost done the book I'm currently reading.
♥ De-cluttering my home. (Will be updating my De-Clutter Blog in the next few days, I've been keeping a list).
♥ Seeing the numbers drop on the scale each week.
♥ Pulling out my beloved wardrobe. Bye-bye everything maternity. Hello clothes!
♥ Bedtime cuddles.
♥ Bedtime stories.
♥ A clean house!
♥ My son telling me I'm the best chef.
♥ Finally having the strength to let go of baby clothes and donate them to someone else who can use them, love them & cherish them as I did.

I love bubbles. I seriously want to go make myself some homemade bubble soap and a small wand and get some going. Wonder if the dogs like bubbles?

It must feel so good to see the numbers come down on the scale! I'm loving that right now, too. =) You have the cutest kids. =D

looks like it was a fun-filled week! :) congrats on bidding farewell to your maternity clothes and to trips to the children's hospital!

Yay for no more hospital visits! Not really an option for us, of course, but hopefully one day they'll just be routine and won't scare the crap out of me so much :)
