Genius: okay, so Meredith still sleeps in bed with us at night. It’s always a struggle to actually get the lights off without screams and cries. The other night I was so tired that I really needed to sleep (aka every night but especially this one) but she NEEDED to change her baby doll’s diaper. We have this handheld light (not exactly a flashlight, more like a camping light) that is actually David’s but she had confiscated to play with. I let her turn it on and I told her to turn it off when she was done and I went to sleep. It totally worked; it gave her the transition she needed. This light is staying on the bedside table now.
Fail: I’ve been so focused on getting Liam clothes that fit him (since he is growing so fast) that I completely overlooked the fact that Meredith’s clothes are all for summer. She is still wearing shorts every day even though it’s getting cool. Need to tap into my hand-me-down network fast!
editing photos to black & white
processing all I learned in this book,
starting this book for book club, and
deciding which book to send for postal book club
finalizing Christmas wish lists
brainstorming gift ideas for my family (I want to finish shopping this month!)
enjoying the rainy weather and the coolness it brings
wondering what other simple beef recipes are out there that I haven’t tried (since that’s David’s favorite meat)
making a two-week meal plan that we can just repeat
running only about twice per week lately; hoping to increase that by a day at least
relieved that most of the people in my life seem to be healthy, finally (and Liam’s asthma is controlled)
