Currently I am…
making: I haven’t started yet, but tomorrow I plan to. I am going to make new curtains for E’s window and closet. He pinched his fingers in the closet doors so off they will come and I plan to hang curtains in their place. And I will make one to match for the window, but with some blackout material as well. They will be no-sew curtains. Bring on the hem tape!
listening to: The sounds of the trail. I’m doing my easy runs on the Town Lake trail and I am not one of those folks who runs to music. I like to pay attention to the thoughts that cruise through my mind (you can’t hear them when you have music.) I like to hear the guy who plays guitar, the sound of the jogging stroller wheels in the loose areas of sand and the little snippets of conversation from passers-by.
craving: Food in general. I’m training for a half marathon and all the miles make me so hungry. I eat. A lot. Not big meals, but many snacks. Chocolate chip whole wheat pancakes with vanilla protein powder. Cinnamon-raisin sprouted grain bagels with organic cream cheese. A smoothie. All of that in one day, plus 3 meals.
writing: Facebook posts. I started a group for the crunchy friendly moms in my friends list. Once in a while I get some not so nice comments on my crunchy tidbits. It doesn’t feel great. So I made a cozy little space where I can spout my crunchy and not get my feelings hurt. I am truly amazed at how these moms, who do not all know each other or even live in the same state, open up about stuff. It’s pretty cool to watch. I guess you could say I am doing more watching/reading than I am writing.
laughing at: Emmet. He’s such a jokester. and a climber. Today he got quiet in the kitchen and as I walked around the corner, what do I see? Emmet ON THE KITCHEN TABLE (Thank you very much daddy) holding his water bottle upside down so the water drips out… I could not help but laugh out loud!
making: Mommy tired. He goes and he goes and he goes. He is a beast.
listening to: MGMT. This is what I turned up very loud as we drove home from our dinner date yesterday trying to keep him awake.
craving: Meat. He prefers meat to fruits, veggies and even bread. Guess his little growing body just needs lots of protein right now. Grow baby, grow!
writing: A Father’s Day card for daddy. We made one ourselves with construction paper and crayons.
laughing at: Me, when I lick his cheek. Seriously, he laughs and laughs when I lick his cheek. Think it’s weird that I lick his cheek? Try licking your kid’s cheek. Their reaction will totally be worth it.
