It's a lie. It's not Wednesday. Today is Thursday and it's past 9 pm and I am just getting this posted. It's been a long week- good, but long. We were lucky enough to have my brother and his family come to visit. I don't get to see them often, so figured this post could wait.
This week's roundup is informed a bit by their visit. They have two young boys who are smart and bossy and full of the best kind of energy. Hope your week is going as well as mine, and if it isn't, it will after you check out these awesome links:

My nephew Aiden would have gone crazy for this pirate ship playground in Portland. I'll have to keep it in mind for their next visit.

Joanna Goddard knows a little something about having small boys. Here's an article she wrote on keeping your marriage fresh when you are raising children.

His may not always be a charmed life, but Prince George is one of the most photogenic, happy (in public) boys I have ever seen.

One thing my nephews have mastered is climbing on furniture. Our couches were a jungle gym- thank you Ikea for making sturdy, inexpensive pieces. This furniture, on the other hand, is not kid-friendly.

Everyone, parent or not, should follow the My Kid Can't Eat This Instagram account. Hilarity.

This last one has nothing at all to do with kids, it's just great: Lemonjames- James Corden at his best.

Hope your week is fantabulous!
