2. I have worked out every day this week in some form...except Tuesday. I am most proud of the ache I feel from the wii fit and weights I have worked into my routine. My trick - do them during lunch/dinner prep (while the water boils I bust out a few reps). Whatever works...right?
3. Henry went pee on the potty for the first time this week. Nothing else since then but it was a fun first step.
4. We also had Henry's second class at his new little school together. Amazingly, he survived the small separation part again this week. He did need his nuk for a little bit but he survived. What makes me so happy ...I can watch him from a one way window. I can see him but he can't see me. And when I do reappear he is soooooooooo proud. He walks taller and has this little attitude that pushes his shoulders back and gives him a bit more strut down the hallway...instead of the distracted toddler dawdle that usually occurs.
5. Charley has been enthusiastic about doing a little "mama school" lately. His adding and writing of numbers are done seriously. His reading and word work are done slowly. He created his own snowman, played sight word bingo, and is excited to see what his journal question is. Henry sits with us and putters in his notebook on his "work."
6. Right now I am feeling really balanced with our out of the house fun and our cozy in home fun. The boys are seeing friends yet are also having plenty of time together and alone. Both boys have times during the week and day where they entertain themselves or each other. The balance feels healthy. I admit that I go in spurts where I over schedule playdates, outings, etc. When we do slow down I find that we are happier.
7. The last two mornings the boys have slept in until after 7 am. Makes for a little more rushed "get out of the house routine." But I am not complaining.
8. I have cut out cocktails during the week and this has been going great. I feel like I sleep better...not that one glass of wine has a huge impact. But tonight with our pizza I am really looking forward to a cold beer.
9. Today the boys were so busy giggling and playing up in Henry's room. Listening to them is joy. All of a sudden Charley was crying and all I could hear was Henry repeatedly saying, "Sorry. Sorry. Sorry Charee." He threw a flashlight thingy at Charley, and it hit him in the nose. I am so proud of his instinct to apologize and give a hug. I explained to Charley that throwing stuffed animals with Henry isn't maybe a smart thing because he doesn't get that a flashlight isn't like a stuffed animal.
The weeks are busy.
The days fly by.
There are very few moments that drag around here.
Thankfully we have had some low key weekends to slow us down, give us time to breathe, pause, and take in the moments.
Did you have a proud moment this week?
What are you filling your weekend with?
