Happy almost weekend, mama’s! Today is a good day because it’s FRIYAY, whoop whoop, but also because today we have a very special meet and greet at Delilah’s soon to be elementary school. She is overflowing with excitement to tour her new Kindergarten classroom and meet her new teacher whom she will get to know very well come Fall. She has a pretty floral dress and big bow head band lying on her bed ready and waiting for her afternoon adventure.
We have lined up a sitter for Sawyer so that the hubby and I can enjoy this afternoon with Delilah and give her a little undivided attention as she takes in this new environment. I may be equally excited and a wee bit nervous to see her reaction to her new school family, is my baby really headed to Kindergarten? I know every mama has the same whirlwind of emotions during this Kindergarten transition but I hope I can hold it together and turn my emotional tears into a big ole’ happy smile because really these tears are joyful and maybe a tad bit reminiscent of the baby stage that seems like it was just yesterday when I held her for the first time. Okay enough sap…stay tuned for an update of Delilah’s first Kindergarten tour and an update on my emotional state. #momprobs
After Delilah’s meet and greet we are dropping Lilah back off at home to the sitter so that she can have some fun this evening with her brother. She adore her babysitter and has known her for quite some time as she also works at her preschool. Her favorite Friday night consists of puzzles, movies, board games and painting nails with Ms. Jen, she looks forward to this every Friday and is usually waiting by the door for her to arrive. While the babies are occupied with Ms. Jen, the hubby and I are headed out to our favorite spot for cocktails, dinner and then to the movies. I also look forward to this every Friday night, alone time with the hubby is good for the soul and gives us a chance to get on the same page before the weekend. It does a body good to get out and hear about each other’s week and enjoy one another before the busy weekend sets in. Date nights are life.
This week I have been working on editing photos from our Jamaica vacay and have been reliving memories of the gorgeous turquoise water, soft sand beach and delicious food. Is it possible to already be ready for another tropical trip to the Caribbean? Life is so slow and sweet when you live on an island and I am thankful to have had that time with my family. Speaking of sunshine and water, our neighborhood pool will be opening in less than two weeks and we are getting our beach bags and water gear ready to hit the pool everyday. I consider myself lucky that both babies are little fish and love to swim. Sawyer loves the pool and sleeps like a log after an hour of splashing around.
One essential that will be accompanying us to the pool everyday is The Phibian Sneaker Sandal. Guys, if you are looking for that perfect summer shoe that is versatile enough to take your sweet babe from playground to pool and everything in between, The Phibian is your best bet. Lightweight and breathable with well gripped outsoles make this sneaker sandal our favorite foot wear to keep the kiddos safe and comfortable while playing all the summer activities. The Phibian boasts a non slip bottom with secure bungee closure for a sneaker-like fit. I love that these shoes are machine washable and dry super quickly for all day use.
This flexible shoe was a game changer while we were in Jamaica. We went from pool to beach in a cinch and didn’t have to worry about soggy flip flops or poor traction while walking the resort. Now that Sawyer is mobile and constantly wanting to walk around, assisted of course, The Phibian protected his little tootsies from hot sand and slippery surfaces. You can shop these babies below and check out all of their fun fashions to choose from. Have a fabulous weekend, friends!
