Writing blog posts has been hard for me lately. I don’t know if its the pace of life or a lack of intelligent thoughts or a poor balance of my time that is the root. I imagine its probably a combination of all of them, but as I am sitting here pondering my week and what I can say about it…..not much comes to mind. So I thought I’d do a Check-In in brief snippets. Snippets are easier for me to produce today than a longer, perhaps more readable story of our life, but its all I got.
(To spice it up aesthetically, I made it alphabetical. Except I didn’t have something for EVERY letter. I promise that the omission of K is not a reflection on my education, but rather my lack of creativity. I cannot think of anything that starts with a K. Except you and K-cups. And this is to you. And I don’t have a Keurig. But I am going to go fix a cup of coffee, because, well…(sigh) read C.)
Our Past Two Weeks – An Alphabetical Snapshot
Attitude – finding that line between politeness and rudeness is not Munchkin’s current strong suit. We’re working on it. (As well as my own attitude towards this.)
Burp Cloths – designing them. Sewing them.
Coffee – three cup days. Occasionally four cups. (Don’t tell Matt.)
Dinners – nightmarish. No one under the age of 5 wants to eat them. I promise, they’re actually good! And the small people HAVE eaten them before. But they don’t want to now…
Easter Dresses – they are out at Target and I just oohh and aaahhh.
Frigid – the temperature of the air.
Grocery Store – when making a special dip for your husband, actually read the label on bottle in the cupboard. Don’t assume the cap on the top gives it’s contents away. Because then you will have to go back to the grocery store an hour after your last visit and 20 minutes before the Big Game.
Hail – or maybe it was sleet. I have NEVER really known the difference. Unless its larger than a nickel. Then I assume its hail. (It was actually really weird and lasted about 3 minutes straight. Munchkin was CONVINCED it was snow and wanted to catch the small pellets of ice in her mouth. That had bad idea written all over it, so I said no.)
Instagram – trying to master the hashtag. Oy!
Joann Fabrics – apparently you MUST go at least twice a week if you’re me. Its become my new Target.
Latitude – a restaurant we went to for my birthday. It was delicious!
Molars – two of them for Little Man. At the same time.
Naps – apparently if you are Little Man and fall asleep in the car 10 minutes from the house and no one can wake you up while riding in the car – via yelling, turning the radio on full blast, etc. – then that qualifies as a full nap and there will not BE a normal nap.
Octonauts – I know all about Cone Snails now. Munchkin has watched the same episode for the past four days. Little Man is enthralled, too.
Popcorn – apparently Munchkin inherited my palate. She ate 80% of the bowl!
Snow – a dusting today, but its all melted.
Turner, Nancy – reading her stuff is delightful, but I’m also super tired and fall asleep. Every night.
Valentines – made our first class set of these! Munchkin wanted to know why we weren’t making HER one….
Walking – all around the place. Unless he wants to get there FAST – then he crawls.
Yellow-Brown Bananas – Banana bread (which is disgusting) is a hit with the small people (thanks, Mom). So now I buy extra bananas and watch them get brown on purpose so we can make more.
So there you have it! The past week or two in our home! Sorry there aren’t any pictures – I keep forgetting to take them. Boo, Erin, Boo!
Here’s a couple of fun ones, just because!
