Choosing my battles

Since we moved to the middle of  nowhere I am learning to pick my battles.  This new town mostly sucks.  The only parks are along a creek which is totally not toddler friendly!  If we want to go to a semi decent part we have to drive to the next town over which is about 20 mins!  We go to walmart just about every day because there is nothing else to do here.  We have a big wonderful backyard that is plagued with chiggers and anytime we attempt to go out there we all get eaten alive!  Jax is highly allergic to them and swells up huge with each bite.  So needless to say we dont play outside much.  We have sprayed and weve had it professionally sprayed but it doesnt help.  

I used to be the mom that would not let my kids go out in public in anything but the cutest matching outfits. I would see people at the store or even at church in costumes or PJs and shake my head...  My kids all the sudden have gone from wanting to be mostly naked all day to wanting to wear PJs all the time!  Im learning to just let go and that it really isnt worth the melt down or the 2 hour fit over wanting to keep their jams on!  Afterall we are in the middle of no where and no one knows us anyway.. right?  hahaha!  

This is my lil stinkers at a restaurant! Lol Woody PJs and Minnie Slippers!

 At Walmart in Minnie Slippers and then in a Princess Dress with minnie slippers and of course the infamous Woody Pjs

  1. We can't go outside much here either. The Mosquitos are too bad :/

  2. Hey at least they look adorable in their pjs. My son insists on wearing a Woody hat that was part of his Halloween costume 2 years ago out to the grocery store. We gets lots of stares but if I have a happy kid while shopping than its well worth it.

  3. I'm afraid of the ticks here. I sprayed, but I'm scared to find out if it actually worked.. LOL Luckily we do have a few parks, but when it's raining the only thing to do is Walmart..


Thank you for stopping by! I LOVE reading all your comments and I try my hardest to respond to each of them via email!
