Genius: This is partly my friend Lauren’s genius, because she had the fun idea to take Meredith to visit this adorable new independent toy store in town. So we went last Sunday after lunch, and since it was 30 min away I had to keep Meredith awake on the way there or else it wasn’t gonna happen. No one wants to be around her if she’s woken up from a nap. So we had a very intense conversation about Frozen on the way there as well as singing the same song about twenty times, but it worked. And she was just in the best mood, and played happily with all the different toys, and she didn’t know that you could buy anything so she wasn’t begging for anything, and there were places to plop Liam down on the floor to play, and I bought all my nieces and nephews their Christmas gifts and I am feeling pret-ty good about it.

Fail: I’m happy to report that we had a pretty good week. I did have a few frustrating moments with Meredith here and there, and once I popped her on the butt out of anger and I do regret that. Another funny thing happened: I was listening to a podcast on my phone and I carried it into her room where she was playing, and the host said that something was “stupid.” Meredith totally picked up on that one word and pointed it out to me, because right now we are trying to teach her when NOT to use that word. :)

Currently: Today I’m mixing it up a little and David answered these prompts! They are about me, from his perspective.

eating eggs and salad greens. Ever since she did Whole30 she learned that eggs are good for you and that she loves them. She also eats a 50% spring mix and 50% baby spinach salad every day for lunch and usually another one at dinner. I guess that’s better than my mix of 50% sour cream and onion and 50% BBQ Lay’s.

drinking two things. Coffee and water. I’ve never known another person who drinks absolutely nothing but a little coffee in the morning and then nothing but water. No milk, no juice, no tea, no soda. Just water. Servers beware: she does not want lemon in her water. Just water. Maybe some ice.

reading some book about “Raising Your Spirited Child.” Congratulations, Meredith!

wanting an awesome camera to make her blog better. Hint hint anyone who is looking for an idea for a Christmas present.

sleeping as much as she possibly can. It’s hard nursing a 9-month-old and working full time.

wearing scrubs. Or nothing. :)

making me breakfast burritos every morning to take to work. They are great and made with love.

feeling accomplished because she just finished her first quilt. And now she is making something with a tree branch and yarn. Don’t ask because I have no clue what it is.

loving her husband and her kids. And her family. And her friends. And patients, and God, and strangers. She’s the best.

Aww, isn’t he sweet? This is something I want to do every few months because I think it gives a little bit of an insider view. :)

Happy weekend! We don’t have any plans, so I might start a new quilt – how about you?

    From Nora:

    What an awesome idea to have David to fill this out; he made me laugh with the 50/50 comment on the potato chips. And the new project you’re working on. At least he’s honest :)

    We have no plans as of right now, either. Maybe some football watching since my college is playing tomorrow and then I know baseball will be on in our house since the Cards are in the playoffs. Otherwise, no idea. Reading? Cleaning? I have some thank you notes to write and some packages to send (finally!?) but otherwise that’s it. I’m totally excited about this.

    I love this post! I get Nathan to fill out “Currently” cards for Project Life sometimes … it’s interesting to have his perspective :) We’re celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend so we have two dinners to go to, I have a riding lesson tonight, and Topher has skating tomorrow. He’s a month in and he’s still convinced he’s in hockey lessons, even though it’s figure skating, because one of their activities is kicking a puck around the ice with their skates :)

    From Kara:

    We have a similar toy store here where you can plunk your kids in a little play area and they can play and be distracted while you shop. It’s the best little toy store!

    From Melanie:

    Loved your hubby ‘s perspective, especially about the projects! So funny to actually hear what a husband might think about yarn and a stick as a craft idea! :)

    From Tabitha:

    I love your CURRENTLY from your husbands perspective. I may need to try this- I would love to hear what he has to say. That’s why I love marriage – we get this awesomly cool perspective on a regular basis!

    From jenna @ dearest love:

    Haha, I pretty much only drink coffee and water as well! I’ll have to occasional soda in the afternoon though. If I had a coffee maker at work I’d definitely brew a cup after work instead!
