I am incredibly grateful for moments like this...
My ninety-one year old Grandfather with my 24 week old son.
Here they are sharing a laugh over baby M's Thomas the train.
I'm blessed to have them both in my life and I learn so much for each one of them.
My grandfather inspires me to make art and go after everything I dreamed of.
He never let me say that I can't do something.
He encourages me to try hard at everything I do.
Baby M looks up at me and I feel like I want to give him the world.
I plan to give him all that I can and then some.
My aim is to keep them... proud. happy. smiling.
I am filled with a #gratefulheart when I think about these two.
Being a preschool teacher, I come home talking about things that include bathroom stories.
One of those conversations recently lead to this gem my husband said on Potty training...
Husband: "When we train M to go potty in the toilet, we will use cheerios." Me: "Like treats for my dogs?!?!" Husband: "No, we'll throw them in the toilet and pretend they are aliens for him to shoot down." Me: "Where did you even get that idea from?" Husband: "I just came up with it." Me: "...and then we can give him M&Ms like my Mom did with my brother."
It's a little early for potty training, but at least we have some ideas. ;)
...so I don't do this, but this perfectly describes my love for food.
It's Monday, which means it's time for me to write about a few things that I'm currently grateful for.
My son's recent high pitched giggling noise.
It makes me laugh which makes him giggle even more. Cheesy motherhood moment.
My husband's goofy one liners.
He's running around the house referring to Baby M as his Gucci and his line "Got a long shift at work but I'll make it through my posting lots of selfies. YOLO." Cracked me up completely.
Martha Stewart's line of glues.
A girl is becoming addicted. Decoupage glue? Tiny glue pens? This white glue with a top that screws on... I need it all.
Wendy's Chocolate Junior Frosty.
A small bit of frozen heaven enjoyed during my lunch break today.
The Whisper App.
I enjoy reading other secrets and skimming through the posts when insomnia strikes.
Sleep, sweet sweet sweet Sleep. Why did I fight naps so much as a kid?
Hey ladies and gents, I'm back to my regular returned schedule of blogging. FINALLY.
I now am back to my scheduled free time now that my certification courses for work are finished.
I debated what I would write about first... but to keep it simple because it's a Saturday, I decided to make a playlist! Some Saturday tunes currently being played in my living room...
Iggy Azalea - Fancy (Explicit) ft. Charli XCX
Notorious B.I.G.- Juicy
Ingrid Michaelson - Girls Chase Boys
The Bouncing Souls - Lean on Sheena
Charli XCX - Boom Clap
Katy Perry ft. Juicy J - Dark House
Anberlin - Godspeed
I'm off to hang out with Baby M and go to a work thing later...
Hey ladies and gents, I promise I'll be back to regularly blogging sometime soon. I'm just filled with distractions like: -Baby M talking away making cooing sounds for hours at a time (It's really cute, I promise).
-Falling Asleep during Orange is the New Black episodes because I'm so exhausted yet I waited months for this.
-Pondering over being docked three points off my essay in my Child Development class.
-Hacking up all kinds of fun stuff, thanks allergy season!
-Debating which days I should take off of work and if I did, if I would even leave the house.
-Should I or should I not cut all my hair off.
-I have a preschool song stuck in my head, "Days of the Week, Days of the week....there is Sunday and Monday and..." It probably doesn't help that my husband sings "What's the weather like?" every morning.
But here's the good news... I'm co-hosting the little Friday link up over on one of my favorite blogs...
On this beautiful Wednesday in June, I have a couple of wishes for the summertime. One. I have yet to see baby M rolling. How do I know that he is rolling?
Well, every time I check on him sleeping in the crib, he is in a different direction then how I laid him to sleep.
Also, my husband has told me he's watched him roll to his side, then stomach and then the other side. ...yet Miley doesn't do it for me. Despite my husband saying, "Come over here and show your Mom!"
He smiles and lays flat until I put him on the changing table. He grabs at his feet and giggles while I attempt to change him. I have a little jokester on my hands. Can I just wish to see him roll (in a safe place) for me to see for myself? Two. I'm ready to be done with my school work and become "senior staff" at my job.
I love my job, which is why I'm pursuing more education. However, it is currently taking several hours away from spending time with little M, my husband and my Mom. I am wishing for June to speed along and for it to be July already. July has always been one of my favorite months. Bring on the fireworks, baseball, swimming pools, sea glass hunting with Mom, playing with M and my wedding Anniversary. Bring on hours to potentially have some free time in my life again. What are your Wednesday wishes?
