Please tell me you are following perfectpending because she makes me LOL on the reg.

Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-19Quiet during bath time? I'd say this kid is definitely a winner.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-18Luckily it's Monday so it's a fresh start. Right?
But... it's also Rice Krispie Treat Day.
So I guess I will be so full I can't breathe from RKTs! My hands are tied.

Gag, gag, one more bite, gag. See? This is great.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-15You guys, 100 days starting RIGHT NOW for those who celebrate Christmas. "Should I text Santa that you just said that?" "Oh no, what do you think Santa will think when he finds out you didn't brush your teeth last night?" Do you text Santa or call him or write letters? I mean, we are barely putting out the Halloween decorations, but best believe we are taking advantage of these 100 days of elf-monitored behavior (not the shelf kind, tyvm). kidsaretheworststrangerthingscallsantatextsantahttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/21577200_1450938204996177_3008608686584102912_n.jpg2017-09-15
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-14I'm suuuuper busy. I mean, I should go to the store for more tape. Super busy.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-13Sure. I can add one more thing. Maybe I can balance it on my head.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-13So much culture. Not enough naps.
Who travels with their kids? I've considered taking all of my kids on some grand trip, but think they'd be just as stoked with a little adventure that we can drive less than 10 hours to get to. At least, that's what I'm telling myself. I'd definitely consider taking one kid at a time on a big trip.

Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-13Cutest thing happened. My daughter and I were shopping yesterday and someone came up to us and said, "Do you want to see something funny?" The answer is always yes! Duh.
This is when we met candle-loving Evie and her mother, sarahchristensen3. I love a girl who knows quality candles when she smells them.
What's your favorite candle scent? You know I'm all about the fall spice ones right now.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-12Snacks, dessert, anything and everything BUT the dinner I am making. "What's that disgusting smell?" It's dinner. Bon appetit, punk.

Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-08Seriously, why does one hour feel like two hours when your kids are at home and one hour feels like ten seconds when they are gone?
Parent math is crazy. I'm gonna just sit here and think about it on the couch for a few more minutes before I have to pick up my kids.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-08Anyone want to tell me how the clothes magically go from the floor to the hamper every night? Anyone? Anyone?

Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-06ABCs make me cry, too, because U and I are not together.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-06My heart has been overwhelmed and full these last few weeks with seeing so much disaster, pain, suffering, need, confusion, and hurt. There are countless ways to help our fellow man, woman, and child.
Some of us can do a lot and some of us can do a little to help.
The trick is to do something.
That may be donating $1 to charity or driving a truckload of goods to help. It may be to smile at everyone you see today or to give your kids an extra hug tonight. Perhaps you are able to give aid and shelter to those who are now without, or maybe you can send a package of goods to someone who needs.
Sometimes, in the middle of disaster and confusion, I can feel so small and my contribution seems so worthless. But I know it's not. I know that every day I choose whether or not I find the light, am the light, or give my light. I just have to pause and decide to help.
Our thoughts and hopes are with Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, Washington, Oregon, Montana, and more.
Today, I am going to take those feelings of concern and heartbreak and turn them into more action. A few more pauses in my day to help lift a few more humans.
And never fear, next post will be a return to the light and levity of this account in hopes that we can all find moments to laugh. Because laughing together is always better than crying alone. ✌️😘 https://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/21372839_344865322606838_7795646357007499264_n.jpg2017-09-06

This looks like a great photo opp... for me to pee on.
Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-04"Now THIS long stretch mark was from my second pregnancy with you, J. So much extra amniotic fluid that the doctors thought I must be having multiples. But no, just gushing and gushing of fluid when my water finally broke. Every step and turn was just MORE fluid. And let me tell you about the cut the doctor made to ensure that A's huge head could come out of my body..." Happy Labor Day, everyone.

Anna MacfarlaneAnna Macfarlane2017-09-02This is why I lived on cold cereal and Power Bars in college. Well, that's not totally true. I didn't want to do dishes and I was cheap. I also spent most of my money on clothes and music and then prayed I'd get asked out on dates.
Oh the college days! Le sigh.
Raise your hand if you have a kid who has left the nest!
