Five on a Friday 9.29.17

OMG, this has been a WEEK. Nothing really happened, but it just felt like it went on for FOREVER. And I had a dentist appointment (and had a cavity – BOO), went home sick one day, have had construction going on in our house… on and on and on! But it’s Friday!!! So here’s some Friday thoughts/favorites. ๐Ÿ™‚


Last month I shared the first What I Bought on Amazon link up! The next one will beย Wednesday, October 4ย so make sure you head over here to link up if you’re joining in!

What I Bought on Amazon Link Up | Perks of Being a JAP |


We discovered that Sadie is having a little bit of a struggle at school. I talked to her teacher, and she said she wants a lot of attention from her teacher, doesn’t want to sit with the other kids, trouble staying focused…. I got really upset about it last night because who wants their kid to struggle? Had a little talk with Sadie and we’re going to start working on stuff in small steps next week. And had a really nice mom from Sadie’s class chat with me after I posted about it in her Kindergarten class Facebook group (yes, these exist!) and talked with Dave and am feeling better about it. And she’s happy every day going to and leaving school, so it’s not all that bad. I mean, look at this kid!

May your day shine as bright as this girl ๐ŸŒˆโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜

I saw this on Instagram and seriously, it’s like they know me. And right now it’s my kid for sure!


Today is National Coffee Day!! And what perfect timing since we did our Mug Love Exchange reveal yesterday! (Did you see the awesome Starbucks You Are Here mug I got?) I’m definitely headed to Dunkin’ Donuts later with my coworkers to grab some coffee!! <3 Mmmmm coffee…..



Sadie has been obsessed recently with this show she found on Netflix called Zig and Sharko. Basically, Zig is a Hyena who lives on a desert island and is trying to capture and eat Marina the mermaid. Sharko (is a shark) and is Marina’s protector. IT’S WEIRD. There is no dialogue, it’s like a reimagined version of Roadrunner and Coyote. I just don’t get it but she LOVES it.

Do your kids watch any weird shows like this?

Have a fantastic weekend!!!

  1. Everyday is national coffee day! Jealous that your coffee place was giving out free coffee; mine did not (damn you, Canada)

  2. It is hard not to stress when you hear your child is having a hard time at school. I would feel the same way that you do. Love all this free coffee today. Hope you have a good weekend!

  3. That show sounds SO WEIRD. Ha. And I’m so sorry to hear that Sadie is struggling in school, but it sounds like you’re taking all the right steps & are hopefully on track to getting things sorted out. She seems like such a great kid!

  5. I’m sorry to hear about Sadie’s struggles in school. I’m sure it’s just an adjustment period and things will be ok!

  6. I’m glad you found some support for Sadie and you! That helps so much when you can talk with other parents. That meme from IG made me LOL!!
