My kids say some pretty hilarious things. I’ve been told that I used to say hilarious things once, but my parents didn’t write it down and cannot remember even one witty anecdote. Inspired by YHL’s Clara Conversations, I wanted to share some isms as I collect a critical mass.
This year we hit up Venice for Carnival. It was amazing. I hope to share more, at least pics, soon.
But in case I don’t get around to it because the Year of Togetherness has decimated blogging around here, I at least wanted to address something that I wondered a lot about before our trip. I’m talking bout strollers.
Should we do no strollers? Two umbrellas? The double? The hiking backpack? I spent more hours than I care to admit pondering what to do about this. The good news is that now I’ve pondered so you don’t have to.
So this is over a month late. This is insanely late. In some way it feels appropriate because it seemed like we celebrated Henry’s birthday for all of September. A month of birthday. Poor kid was so confused.
You know what’s SUPER weird? Groundhog Day. Try explaining that to a two and four year old. Seriously. You sound like a crazy person.
First, what is a groundhog? Uh, it’s like a beaver without the tail. They live in the ground. I don’t know why we call them hogs.
Yeah, yeah, we grab this groundhog out of the ground and he predicts the weather. That’s legit. But Batman is fake. Go figure.
Happy Belated Groundhog Day everyone.
A little bit late, but I’m trying to do a check in on my 2017 goals. Accountability!
Hi Guys. It’s been awhile. I’ve got some post ideas percolating (like FINALLY doing a Malta post after we’ve gone three times now), but I’m trying to type fast while the boys are entertained in the other room.
It’s been ages since I did this so I figured we could catch up on anything you might have missed.
We had a lovely Christmas Eve. At least in the afternoon, that is. Lots of friends, Christmas pageant at church, amazing food.
The morning, however, was another story. It involved a very ugly scene with me yelling at the kids to pick up their stuff, escalating to me threatening to throw everything away, and raging that they shouldn’t be getting more stuff if they couldn’t take care of their things.
Just the kind of peace, love, and joy you want for Christmas, right?
So this is a post of limited relevance to many, but IF you are in Italy next weekend, you should totes check out the presepe vivente (live Nativity Scene) in Civita di Bagnoregio.
If the weather is good that is. We had pretty mild conditions and loved it. A friend who went last year said it was bitterly cold and windy. I can definitely see how that would put a damper on the fun.
The other day I was listening to a podcast where one of the hosts mentioned having excellent sleep hygiene as a goal for 2017. (I would link it here, but I don’t remember at all which one it was. Maybe Balanced Bites?)
Sleep hygiene, of course, being things like no screens before bed, going to bed at a certain time, having your room pitch black and interruption free, etc.
My kiddos need better sleep hygiene.
