Linking up with Meghan from Clean Eats, Fast Feets for another Week in Review!
It was one of those weeks… nothing super exciting going on, and yet it seemed exhausting as well. Phoebe has been having some rougher bedtimes as we attempt to get her to stay in her own room. I was okay when she would wander into our room after we had all gone to sleep, but that time got earlier and earlier until some nights she’d go to sleep between 7:30-8:00 only to wake up at 9:00 or so and want to sleep in my bed. We are trying to break that habit and it’s not easy. I set up a cot in our room so if she does have trouble sleeping she can come sleep on that, but the novelty wore off and she doesn’t want to sleep on the cot anymore. SIGH.
On Tuesday I got a hair trim, and while I wasn’t sure about the short bangs at first… I grew to like them. Har har har.
On Thursday, Enzo randomly threw up at day care several times, so I went to pick him up early. He recovered quickly and was perfectly fine, but still had to stay home with Josh on Friday. At least the cats were happy?
On Saturday a friend of Josh’s drove out (he was picking up an arcade game that Josh had found for him) and spent the night. Enzo didn’t want to leave the house, but Phoebe was antsy, so we had a little Girl’s Day complete with annoying puppet shows that she insisted we watch and lots of sleepy critters at a very hot day at the zoo.
The best part was getting a glimpse of the new Mountain Lion cub, though!!!! He/She was passed out and part of me wondered how hard it would be to break into the enclosure and steal the little guy away. I’m not crazy.
Can’t forget hanging out with my favorite lizard. 😉
On Sunday we started putting together Bowser’s new enclosure (still waiting on the new light strip) and then it was swim class time! Afterwards we played in the pool with the kids and then let them play in the play area before heading out to dinner because I had zero desire to cook.
Phoebe ended up falling asleep in our bed while we were watching The Great British Baking Show. Even though it completely negates what we’ve been trying to train her to do, we left her in there. It’s a new week, right? I’m sure tonight will go swimmingly with zero issues!
Happy Monday everyone!
The short bangs are you!! There’s a few select people who can pull them off, and you are definitely one. Also, is the lizard growing or is that just me??
Sigh. I remember loving sleeping with my parents too. I wonder how long it took them to wein me off of that one…
And yes, Bowser is indeed growing and should get up to 18 inches when full grown!!
It’s so hard… On the one hand I love the snuggles, but on the other hand I really do need Phoebe to be more independent so I can have my own space. So, so hard.
I adore the short bangs and the color. You look super sexy and sassy.
I’m glad you and Pheobe got to spend a girl date together. Maybe the extra special together time will help with the evening sleeping arrangements. Fingers crossed for you.
I’d totally want to steal the lion cub too. I’m sure he’d get along with Bowzer and the cats just fine.
Thank you so much for the complement! I really am loving my hair lately.
You may be right… it can be hard to find enough special time with each kiddo and she has always been one who needs her people. I think I just need to find more time and find a special way to still connect with her that doesn’t include sleeping with her.
