Right now, I am...
:: marveling at the quiet on this Tuesday morning as the boys are off to school and Miss Syd is napping
:: tired and feeling a sugar low..time to hit the stash. Does anyone else sneak a piece or two...I do feel guilty. But I can't resist.
:: laughing at how every year when it comes time to exit the house to trick or treat I feel overwhelmed and teary. The posing for pictures is rushed and the hyper boys are bouncing out of control. And Daddy wanders out of the house and closes it up like we can just leave...even though I have about a 20 minute pack up deal to complete so we have all the things we might need. ugh. Maybe next year we'll just leave and deal. And this afternoon we might suit up for a few more pictures.
:: overwhelmed, with all the thoughts from my weekend away. I still have so much I want to think about and get straight in my head.
:: pleasantly surprised that my boys both grabbed up some asparagus the other night for dinner and loved it. They thought they were green beans at first, and we didn't correct them until after they tried them. But yipee for the new loved veggie.
:: wondering, if Henry will have gained his two pounds. On Thursday he will go with to Charley and Sydney's yearly check ups. He is hoping to have gained two pounds so he can move to a booster seat like his big brother. I am kind of hoping he didn't...because his eating has improved 200% because he is trying to gain that weight. He ate asparagus, finished his fruit at breakfast the last two weeks, drank milk, and is eating his veggies.
:: grateful for the friends who have talked about my weekend away with me and have enjoyed the little things I have shared. You are keeping that feeling alive.
:: hearing Henry tell Charley that he can't chew gum but then Charley responding that he is 7 and he sure can. And then Charley showing this weird eyeball gobstopper type candy and Henry saying, "That might make you choke Charley." I love that Henry is taking care of the candy monitoring for me.
:: going to have the boys work on their countdown for Thanksgiving candy boards today or tomorrow. And then I am thinking that I will have the candy witch come and swap out all the left over candy for the Lego Advent calendar. Thanks Tracey for the heads up!
:: planning on tackling Super Porridge for Miss Sydney this week/weekend.
:: listening to Matt Kearney's CD, still loving it SOOO much.
:: inspired by friends who share their goals.
:: happy to have a haircut appointment this week.
:: stumped on how to get Miss Sydney to sleep through the night, like she did the first 4 months of her life. She has been waking often. And even though I love nursing her in the quiet of the night, pausing to watch her wave at me, and smile. It would be really nice to get a full night of sleep.
:: starting a new tradition called "Chef for the day." Each week the boys will pick one night when they will be in charge of helping with the dinner preparation.
:: wishing you all a wonderful Tuesday.
Today... we will get the house back in order.
Henry and I will do a little candy sorting and counting.
Sydney will work on her crawling.
And this evening things will be relaxed and slow so that we can survive the rough hours of the day as we will all be tired from last night and on sugar roller coasters.
