Summertime Happiness

Hi hi everyone! I know, it's been almost a month since I last posted. And you know what I'm going to say, it's been busy busy! In a nutshell, it's been busy with school field trips (between the two kids, John Janzen Nature Centre, Telus World of Science, and upcoming ones to Ukrainian Village and Jackie Parker Park), my number 2 had her preschool graduation and concert, plus the husband had a new business venture go into play at the end of May, so we really have been busy here!

I can't believe it's June and that there's only about two weeks of school left! Thank goodness, I haven't been wanting to get up lately, plus I think I'm over packing school lunches and snacks, haha. Bring on lazy summer days! I talked about teacher gifts in my last post, and I have done nothing since then. Nothing. I think for the preschool teachers it will be cookies plus something felt, I'm thinking maybe felt flower magnets, and for the grade two teachers, it will be Chapters gift cards. I still have time, right?

What kind of music are you guys listening to these days? Gone are my days of devotedly listening to one album, though I still play fave songs on repeat. My current favorite the past few weeks now is Lust for Life, by Lana Del Rey and featuring The Weeknd. I love this song. I actually love Lana Del Rey too, I played her Born to Die album over and over. Okay, I guess I do still have days of devotedly listening to albums. Born to Die was the last hard copy CD I bought. Even my kids are used to that album, and number 2 always fell asleep to it in the car, now I wonder when she listens to one of those songs as an adult, it will automatically put her to sleep.


I'm sad that I can't play Lust for Life while the kids are around though. There's a line that is repeated, "Take off, take off, take off all your clothes," and it's slow and distinct, so I'm sure the kids will be singing that all the time. The last thing I need is for them to break out in song with that particular line at the grocery store.

Now that my kids are getting older, I'm a little more conscious about what they hear in songs. Overall, radio is still safe, but once in awhile, especially with hip hop music, I'm waiting for them to question a lyric. It was throwback Thursday one time, and they were playing Shaggy, It Wasn't Me, on the radio, and the lines 

Honey came in and she caught me red-handed, Creeping with the girl next door, Picture this we were both butt-naked, Banging on the bathroom floor

Auggh, fortunately neither of the girls noticed the lines. Ed Sheeran, Castle on the Hill, was on the other day though,and number 2 asked me what 'drunk' meant, after hearing 'Running from the law through the backfields and getting drunk with my friends'. I gave her my standard response of 'Don't worry about it', haha.

Thanks for reading! Have a great day everyone!
