Yesterday I found a piece of dried up chicken salad in my hair. Whatever, it’s a hazard of the job. Plus it reminded me that Judah added two new foods to his diet this week. (!!!) Chicken salad and nectarines never tasted so good. After a lifetime (4 years) of routine eating, he’s branching out. For that, I’ll take dried chicken salad in my hair any day.
Jacob has learned to sing. He’s learned the words to almost every nursery rhyme that we sing around here and joins in at bed time. My favorite though is his attempt at creating his own songs. It’s basically the same sentence over and over, but it’s mostly on tune and ends with, “You like dat song, mama?” Yes, baby, I love it. I write a lot about Judah’s accomplishments, but that’s not because Jacob is a bump on a rock. I am so thankful that he stops me in my tracks with cute little songs and forces my focus back on the simple, wonderful things in life…like making up your own song and belting it out.
Since moving here, I’ve felt a little distance from Target; and not just because of the milage between my tucked away home and it’s bustling location. We (Target and I) used to have such great, peaceful shopping experiences. Our Target here is always busy, but this morning, bright and early and in need of coffee, the Mister and I walked around with the Little Gingers. Thank you Starbucks for being inside Target and thank you Target for being quiet this morning and having that great water table on clearance. (p.s. I still love you)
And quickly now, because I have to wash this day old make up off my face and scrub the strip of syrup out of my hair before the boys wake up from their nap…
Thank you clouds for giving us a cool and breezy week. Thank you sun for shining randomly this weekend and helping us emerge from the short stint in crazy town (we like a lazy, stay at home week, but by Friday are starting to go crazy). Thank you grocery store for delivering groceries yesterday and not forgetting our strawberries and pound cake (even though you were “out of” hot dogs and toilet paper…?! But then again, that did lead to a trip to Target, so I guess thanks for that too). And last but not least, thank you sweet and kind, elderly couple at the post office. You literally made my week by smiling and making funny faces at my boys and then chatting with me like we’ve known each other for years. I hope I run into you again and we become fast friends.
How was your week? I hope good!
