Ignorance is Bliss

I knowingly left the house with snot on my shirt this morning, so that’s kinda where I am in life. 

When you notice your clothes are dirty once your car is already running in the driveway, what other choice do you have?

Saturday Morning

This morning was different. My Sweet Pea slept late so I was able to shower. (Pretty luxurious!)

Then I discovered she spit up a little in her crib. Bummer. Instead of rushing downstairs to let the dogs out, I ran a bath for the poor dear. Bath time is fun. The sounds of laughter and splashing filled the upstairs of our home.

Bear woke up and helped. A change of sheets and a towel-dry later and our regular morning routine  began. I put away Pea’s laundry, and headed downstairs for breakfast.

After I took care of the dogs, Pea snacked on toast and bananas. (She doesn’t always have toast, but always bananas. Always.) she patiently ate and sang in her high chair while I put away dishes, made coffee (finally!) and tidied the kitchen.

When we came into the playroom I sipped my cinnamon coffee, soft daylight poured in through the blinds, and while she busied herself with rocking horses and books, I realized 500 Days of Summer was on. We listened (one of the greatest soundtracks I’ve ever heard) and read books about shapes and colors.

And just like that, the out-of-the-ordinary morning became yet another of our glorious, perfectly imperfect, run-of-the-mill Saturdays. Ah.

A Very Minnie Christmas: Character Chair from Delta Children is the perfect gift

It’s that time of year again: Time to shop ‘til you drop for your parents, friends, the coworker who loves cat calendars that you unfortunately drew in your office Secret Santa, teachers, and obviously your kids. It’s a lot, I know. Before you curl up under a cozy blanket and hope no one sees you until January, may I suggest Target? Put on your elastic pants of choice (yoga pants or leggings, in my case), put your hair in a topknot, grab a Starbucks, and go to Target…. online that is! That’s basically what you do every day anyway, right? You got this. #momlife

What socks are best for baby?

Well, it’s happened. I have a one year old. 740586764 people told me to enjoy it because it would go fast when we first brought her home. To the surprise of no one, they were all right.

She’s reached the stage where she wants to be independent and do things on her own. (Girl after my own heart.) She wants to feed herself, however unsuccessfully, with a spoon. She wants to brush her teeth herself. (Sorry, kid. Mom’s gotta step in to assist there.) And just to grease the wheels and prepare myself for what’s to come, I’m letting her pick out some of her own clothes.
