-Chocolate covered strawberries are bad news. Bad, bad news. I mean, they are insanely delicious, and probably? My most favorite dessert of all time if I had to rank it. But they are all sorts of tempting...and easy to eat, because-Oh, it's just fruit. You know, slathered in chocolate. Next thing you know, you ate five of them and your belly hurts.
Speaking of which, are they suitable breakfast foods? Because there is a slight chance I'm eating some with my coffee this morning. See? So bad. But, so so good.
-This morning, Declan came up to me while Eme was in her highchair eating breakfast--and he wrapped his arms around me. He started telling me about how in the book he's reading, it talks about how great it is for your kids to see their parents show affection. I think he's right--and lately I've just been very convicted when we argue or have any type of conflict in front of Emeline. I need to be better about this. Also? My mouth. It can be filthy sometimes, and it's just not the type of example I want to set.
One of my friends, Laura, wrote a really great post about this topic last week--you should check it out.
-Lately we play this game with Emeline...."Can you say _____", and then she will repeat whatever it is we say. So, in the car, when I'm trying to distract her from how tired she is, and Justin Bieber is failing me, we'll sometimes play this. Her vocabulary is still limited, but at the same time, feels like it's exploding. Obviously not every word sounds exactly like it-but she totally tries. So we'll go through her normal words: Mac-a-boy (yes, she says this, and its DARLING), thank-you, night-night, food, water, more, all done, uh-oh, ball, puppy, duck, please, Momma, Daddy, Pop-Pop, shoes, etc.
For some reason it works, and totally keeps her distracted.
So does playing with baskets on our heads.
-Lately I have the urge to redo all the bathrooms in my house. The problem is, I don't have the motivation. I have the urge...the desire...but no real 'umph' to actually do anything about it. So, that sucks. Or, maybe it doesn't? It's better for my budget, I guess.
I blame pinterest, though. It truly makes my desire to up and re-do my entire house really, really high. And that's really, really bad.
-My four year anniversary is THURSDAY. Whoa. 4 years. Not to mention the other 6 years of dating prior to that. We're so...old. I love it, though. I love my husband so much and am truly so blessed to have him. We're gonna keep our celebrating pretty simple with dinner out (but where we go is a secret apparently)--since we have already scheduled a big trip for September. Still, though? A night out-? Totally looking forward to it.
Time to finish my coffee...
