drinking: a latte made with whole milk. Pure decadence.
listening to: Lauren Daigle's How Can It Be album. On repeat. All morning.
obsessed with: Kirkland brand Dark Chocolate Almonds with Turbinado and Sea Salt...dark chocolate, nuts, this is health food right?
just finished reading: Moms On Call (Toddler Book) Y'all. This book is SO GOOD. 3 of my 4 kids are already past the toddler stage, but I learned so much I can use with Jude. If you're in this stage, or approaching this stage (age 2-4) with any of your kids, this book has some wonderful tools for you. Picky eaters, sleep issues, the "NO!" stage, discipline, welcoming a new baby home...there is gold in these pages. If you're not familiar with Moms on Call, check them out, you'll be glad you did.
just started reading: Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier
delighting in: the start of a fairy garden in our front yard. The sweetest reader sent a "fairy clothesline" to Britain this week, complete with adorable tiny tutus pinned onto it. The kids flipped out and started to build a whole little scene around it. Thank you Lynn!
working on: my fitness. I'm back to doing the Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide. Just finished Week 4 and I'm remembering now that Week 5 gets a lot harder. Woohoo! (sarcasm)
best homeschool moment this week: hearing Elijah voluntarily reading a bedtime book to his cousin
best mom moment: sitting here this morning listening to Jude name Mr Potato Head's body parts and place the tiny hat on his own head repeatedly. The simplest things can be the most sacred can't they?
worst mom/homeschool moment this week: when we were learning about Confucius and his adage to, "do unto others what you want done unto you," (I did not know he said that) and Britain took the opportunity to say, "yea Mom, like when you scream at us, you don't want us to do that to you, so you shouldn't do that to us." Um. Okay, I think "scream" is a bit of an exaggeration darling...but yes, point taken. Thank you Confucius.
looking forward to: a trip to the skate park tomorrow morning. We haven't been in a while and Elijah has improved so much. To see all the action, go follow B Daddy's Instagram account! He is putting together fantastic little videos over there each week. As an added bonus, new followers this week will be entered into a giveaway for...wait for it...a bag of Kirkland's Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds. YUM! Go get on that!!
What are you looking forward to this weekend? What was the highlight of your week? Thanks for reading as always...y'all are the reason I keep writing.
