Happy Friday! Everyone ready to start their Memorial Day weekend? Unfortunately I have to work tomorrow morning and Monday. Oh well, it’s not like I have much planned anyways.
Now on to this weeks Friday Favorites!
- Wes’ Vacation Days
All this week Wes had off work. I have to say, I’ve enjoyed the extra 15 minutes I get not having to worry about getting Chooch to my parents house. I also enjoy not having to pick him up from daycare. I have been able to come straight home to see my guys and that’s been pretty nice. Although, I wish it was the other way around and I was the one home with J all week. I have been loving getting pictures of them having fun at the park!
- New Reads
I don’t have much time to read recently, let alone scroll through a billion books and read a billion blurbs. So when a mom in one of my Facebook groups or one a follow on Instagram mentions a new book they are loving I go and check it out!
This book is called “Sh*tty Mom: The Parenting Guide for the Rest of Us.” Yep and so far it’s pretty entertaining. If you want a book about motherhood that’s straightforward and pretty inappropriate this is for you. You’ll love it.
- One Week Down
We made it a week with the cast. Not going to lie, it hasn’t always been easy. It’s been a week of being kicked in the face, not sleeping and general frustrations. Jameson has been a little off balance but he seems to be getting the hang of things. Only two more weeks!
- Moments of Silence
We had a long evening of just trying to GET chooch to sleep! Wes and I tried everything I’m pretty sure- he’s obviously in the refusal stage now. Wes walked him, I walked him, tried to nurse him, we let him play. Most of the time he fake cried while looking up at me every 30 seconds-those are the moments when being a mind reader would really come in handy.
Finally, after about an hour and 45 minutes of trying, I finally got this kid to sleep! That moment when I finally get the chance to turn the TV off and climb into bed-that silence is the best after a long day. That silence is therapeutic, it’s cleansing and I enjoy it immensely. It gives me time to clear my head and relax.
This time, we’re going Breakfast. I’ve been trying some overnight oats recipes here recently and I’m excited about this new flavor! I’m even bringing the second serving for lunch. I love the idea of these, it gives me a few extra minutes in the morning not trying to fuss with making a good breakfast.
Update: this flavor isn’t my favorite, I taste too much of the plain Greek yogurt, it’s a little tart. A little extra honey though and it definitely perked it up. My favorite was peanut butter and banana-that had great flavor!
- Goofy Selfies
Not talking about ugly selfies or stuff like that. I mean goofy selfies with Jameson. Kid loves the camera phone and FaceTime so when I turn the camera on us, he hams it up! Even throws in some kisses.
Well, that’s all I have for you today! We hope everyone has a good holiday weekend! Remember to take a minute to remember the fallen-the heroes who made this life possible!
