/ one / I finished Wild this week, and I have to say, I liked it a lot! I know some people found parts of it to be repetitive or boring, but it really makes me want to go hiking, but maybe not for 30 days or thousands of miles like she did. It also made me long for the warm, sunny days of summer ahead!
I've since moved onto The Girl on the Train, which I've heard is great but can also be sort of depressing and sad. I haven't gotten into the grit of the book yet, so we shall see.
/ two / We tried a new play place (Rockin' Jump) on Tuesday when O was out of school -- so fun! All the jumping gave me a bit of motion sickness though. Owen had a ball though and eeps bringing it up at dinner as a conversation topic. He'll say "So, Mommy? Daddy? Let's talk about the jumping place..." and leave it up to us to carry on the conversation from there. It's so cute that he just wants to keep reminiscing about it.
/ three / I've taken a position on the board of the San Mateo Mother's Club as one of the Children's Outings coordinators. So... if you live in the area and want to join the club, or are already a member, please come to my events! They'll be TONS of fun! And in related news, it looks like I will be on the board of his preschool for the next school year as well. (!!!)
/ four / We've signed O up for 3 year-old preschool for next year and it is so exciting! He got into the class we wanted (mornings!), and now the only trouble is that it is Mon / Wed/ Fri and Keith is still off on Mondays, which means it will cut into our family / "weekend" time. There is really nothing we can do about that though, other than hope Keith will get moved to a more standard Monday through Friday schedule soon. Maybe then we can have some three day weekends like normal people do?!
/ five / My Organic Grass-Fed Beef Gelatin came yesterday. Yep, sounds delish huh? Well, it is supposed to be high in protein and way better than the stuff in traditional gummies, even Annie's Gummy Bunnies, which O can't get enough of and I buy in bulk. I'm going to try to make some soon and, as always I will totally share the outcome with you!
/ six / We're two days into Lent and I've already started thinking of things I want to buy. It hasn't been too hard though, because I haven't been out doing any shopping in the last few days - we've only gone to the gym / school / swimming etc., but I know I'm going to be facing some challenges as all the super cute spring stuff keeps popping up in stores.
/ seven / Last week I read on Samma's blog that she'd been watering down her daughter's milk and I thought I'd give it a try with Owen as well because he is a huge milk drinker. No really, he requests a "baba" (has always called it that, although he's been drinking his milk from a sippy cup for a long long time now) allll day long and it really curbs his appetite. We've been doing about 2/3 milk and 1/3 water all week and it has greatly increased his appetite! I think he eats about 50% more at each meal now. I'm so thrilled and he is none the wiser!
