This post is totally random but I can't think of what to write about, and there are a bunch of random things on my mind!
My 5 yr old is so cool! In the past two weeks, she has learned how to jump rope, sew a button and tie a pony tail.
She also cracked me up over the weekend with her eagerness to help me. I strained my neck on Saturday and while my husband was running around trying to help me get comfortable, my 5 yr old did the only thing she could think of to make me feel better... she grabbed my ear plugs from beside my bed. She said they are in case I don't want to hear any noise. My kid knows me!
I'm trying to read Elizabeth Gilbert's book, Committed but I can't seem to do it. The first chapter was pretty good but the current chapter is more boring than my husband's book, which I so lovingly call the History of Oatmeal, but is actually called The History of Strength and Materials (He's a Structural Engineer).
Remember my post about the bedtime hearts? I just thought I'd give you an update: it's still working! In the past 11 nights, each kid has only lost one heart. And the ONE time that a kid got out twice, she lost TV the whole next day. She was like a crack addict going thru withdrawels. so I'm pretty sure that is not happening again.
Another note about bedtime: my kids and I have been telling what we call "switch stories", where she starts the story by telling one sentence, I make up the next sentence, she makes up the next, and so on. It's so fun to see where their imaginations take them. And since I have a hard time coming up with creative stories, it gets me off the hook for at least 1/2 of the story. Tonight my daughter said, "the princess was a pretty good sewer. and she had pretty good shoes..". Huh?
Today is the first day in 3 days that I can breathe through my nose, thanks to a head cold. I felt like I was given a new lease on life the second I felt a cool breeze drift inside one nostril. It's the little things in life, right?
I started my Physiology class today. It's a pretty intense class that's going to take a lot of studying. Translation: limited blog time. I'll still read all of ya'll's posts but I will likely ponly post once or twice a week. I'm sure you will all survive. Just don't forget about me! :)
Stay tuned for my next post... are you a muffin, a bird, or a horse??
my husband thinks i'm nuts for posting this crazy blog post tonight. it's pretty random. sorry folks!
