I feel like a legitimate housewife today.
I’m trying my best to stick to the to-do list that’s left over from yesterday, but now that the floors have been mopped and the majority of the laundry has been shoved into the basket, (nice and neatly because that’s the next best thing to folding it) I’m about to dive into some sewing and possibly eat a hot dog for lunch. Speaking of eating healthy. Josh and I have decided to get a juicer. We’re trying to add more raw foods to our diet and my ultimate goal (for myself) is to eat at least an 80% raw diet. I know if I try to go 100%, my inner junk food junkie will attack any and all resolve, so I’m aiming for 80% or better. My friend Mia has really inspired me with her raw recipes and since we have a plethora of Farmer’s Markets around here, I have no excuse but to eat healthier. I guess on second thought, I’ll go eat a carrot and leave the hot dogs alone.
I have been acutely aware of Jacob’s need to have one-on-one time with us. I think he’s reaching the age where he really realizes that Judah gets a lot of attention and while he understands to some degree that Judah needs our attention because he can’t actually do certain things for himself, we never want Jacob to feel like the lesser priority. I’ve been trying to do little activities with just him throughout the day and doing them out on the sun porch works great. We finally took our tent down and cleared up all the clutter. It makes a really nice area to do arts and crafts. I thought using pencil erasers for stamping (which I saw first on Aesthetic Outburst and came from here) would be a great activity for Jacob. I plan on using this method for a few other projects, but today it was just about having fun.
I’m always in need of fun activities for little guys Jacob’s age, so what are some that you do with your kids? (or that you do yourself…come on, I know you braid friendship bracelets on your days off)
