I usually write this post on Saturday evening after I have dutifully written out the meal plan and grocery list.
But, it didn’t happen. For few reasons, one of which is that this past week sucked a whole bunch. I was in this weird funk and so over all of it. Part of the reason was that I started comparing myself to all these other amazing moms I know and feeling as if I was just not doing all I could to be prepared or whatever.
I don’t know what got into me, but I was just all sorts of yucky. Thankfully, that passed and I realized that no matter what, I am doing my best, I am there. I love my kid. He is healthy and boy, oh boy, is he happy.
The other thing that happened is that my kid really took off. He is certifiably crawling and in to EVERYTHING. I was so anxious that he would get into something or hurt himself. I am also feeling much better about that now that we installed a new entertainment center (which keeps the cords away from monster baby) and a gate at the top of our stairs.
So, things here are good. We’re busy preparing for house guests and upcoming travels! This weekend my good friend that I have known since third grade is coming with her fiancé to meet the monster. It’s going to be a quick trip but there is going to be cake! I like cake.
Monday: Spinach-Tomato Pasta Shells
Wednesday: Chicken Fajita Soup
Thursday: Pasta Fagioli
Here’s to a better week and hopefully some spring weather!
