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?
