We LOVE Melmo!!

(photo courtesy of 918moms.com)

Last night my girls and I were able to go see Sesame Street Live thanks to 918moms.com.  We were also lucky enough to have a meet and greet with Melmo (Elmo) and Cookie Monster.

I would really, REALLY, like to tell you that it was a stress free, perfect night.  But, lets be real here!  This is how my evening went down:

At the meet and greet my girls were SO excited to see Melmo and Cookie.  When they walked in the room they both lit up.  It was SO cute!  Mallory just kept waiving and saying hi.  SO cute!  Madison was worried we would not be able to see them but I reassured her that we would.  The closer we got to Melmo and Cookie the tighter Mallory's grip got.  lol  Madison decided she did NOT want her picture taken with them and Mallory would not have it unless I was in the picture with her.

When we got back to our seats we of course got some cotton candy, it is a tradition for us.  Once the show started both girls were pretty excited.  Again, Mallory just kept waiving and saying hi and from time to time would get up and dance to the music.

(YAY!  Melmo!)

Then!  Oh boy!  Then!  lol  Then they shot confetti.  Oh. My. Gosh!  That was all it took for Madison to go from happy to cranky.  Poor girl just does not do well with loud noises.  She sat like this the rest of the show.

Poor baby.

It wasn't much longer before Mallory had enough and just wanted to go run.
So we went ahead and came home.

All in all it was a GREAT show, what we were able to see, and we did have a good time.  Just be ready for an overly active 2 year old to want to get up and go run (lol).

It is not too late for you to purchase tickets for this weekends shows.  Just head to 918moms.com for all of the details on times and cost and where to purchase.

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

For Such a Time as This

You know when you find a group of friends and you just sit back in amazement when you think of just how awesome they are? I am SO lucky to have a group like that in my life. I am even luckier to have this group in my girls' lives.  It is so very important to me for my girls to see the relationships I have with these women. The way we interact and love each other. It is important they see that even though each one of these women are very, very different, we still come together in love and laughter. It is also important to me that my girls see the relationships that these wonderful women have with their families. I am lucky enough to be close friends with two AMAZING families. We do things together, as families, we also do things together just the moms and kids. I love that my girls see these strong families and know that these families are there for them should they ever need them. In the times that we l…
