Hello, it’s me
I was wondering if after all these days you’d like to me to blog
To go over everything
They say that time’s supposed to make ya write
But I ain’t done much writing
Oh, that’s not the Adele version you know? Weird. Holy moly blog hiatus! I don’t know what happened there! Actually, I do. Last week, William and I both were battling a horrible head cold. I had no energy and went to bed shortly after he did every day. By the time Friday rolled around, we were both wiped. I put him to sleep, went to bed, woke up at 2:30 in the morning to William throwing up in his crib. I brought him in my bed; he puked 30 minutes later. I changed his crib sheets, threw in a load of wash for both of our sheets, and went to sleep in the extra bedroom. He woke up at 4:30, I brought him in bed, he woke up at 6:30 throwing up on that bed. Again, at 8:00 in the living room. And one final time at noon in the kitchen. Gross, laundry, sanitize, sleep. That was the drill.
William was feeling better Sunday when, naturally, I started feeling funky. I’ll spare you my details, but I thought my insides were trying to leave my body for a good portion of the day. Needless to say, I took the day off work on Monday. Now, we’re both healthy and keeping all our food inside. Thank goodness.
So HI! What’s been going on?! Besides sanitizing the heck out of my house and doing a thousand loads of laundry, not a ton has been going on around here! Here’s a photo to show you that I’m still alive and kickin’…
Stephanie often jokes about how William has no boundaries when it comes to nursing, yet she’s the one who comes in to take a sister selfie WHILE he is nursing! Talk about no boundaries! Can you spot his little hand?
We’ve had some crazy nice days of weather which we’ve been sure to get outside as much as possible, especially given the nasty germs inside.
William is talking up a storm these days. My mom, his Yaya, gets him to talk the most and they converse in full sentences for hours on end. He babbles and babbles and picks up and understands everything you say. He literally talks in complete sentences now. It’s quite amazing!
You know how everyone jokes about the “Freshman 15?” When you go to college and inevitably gain 15 pounds? Well, the school where I teach looooves to eat. Instead of the Freshman 15, there’s our school’s 20… As delicious as the donuts are in the teacher’s lounge every week, they’re not so great for anyone’s waistline. This is why I helped to start “Wellness Wednesday,” where we do a 15 minute workout in the morning and share healthy snacks in the lounge. After National Popcorn Day, I reached out to SkinnyPop and asked if they’d like to sponsor a Wellness Wednesday.
To say teachers were happy about the healthy snack that day would be an understatement! That SkinnyPop went like wildfire! Those individual bags are so perfect. I always love SkinnyPop, but sometimes it is hard to demonstrate restraint and portion control when eating out of the big bags. The snack bags are perfectly portioned at 100 calories. Big thanks to SkinnyPop for being awesome and encouraging healthy snacks!
Robes. I live in them. First thing in the morning, I put it on, and it’s the last thing I take off at night. Right when I come home from school, I undress, put my pajamas on, and then my robe. I literally live in my robe. My family constantly questions me as to why I’m always, always in my robe. “Because it’s so darn comfortable,” I tell them over and over. Well, for Chanukah, one of William’s gifts he received was a Thomas the Train robe.
This makes my heart so happy! #robes4life
Alright, that’s it for today. Short and sweet, yes. Let’s just ease back into this blogging thing. That was my longest hiatus in my four plus years of blogging!
Catch me up – what’s been going on?!
