this has become one of the new staples. so easy so good.
"look mama! I make toast!"
shirt change... and back in bed.
Our brunch day was a mostly sick one last sunday... it was more of 'let's eat breakfast, and quickly get back in bed-day' We didn't make the bed, it wasn't necessary. We didn't do much... except stare aimlessly at "the tv" (our computers). And enjoy on and off sleep throughout the day. (what else are sick days for?!) It wasn't all so bad though... it was beautiful outside, the windows were open, with fresh lots of air blowing in (thank you florida), and in the morning... warm soup was made for us (with love), patiently waiting for whenever our hunger would strike again.
This weekend, I look forward to a baby-free (lady) date outside of the house, party planning, work work work, organizing, scheming, taking over the world, cleaning out my closet, and cleaning the damn fish tank (finally), pizza (please let there be pizza), and whatever else.... okay, maybe only some of those things. But I'm looking forward to a good weekend.
ps. you see that bottle up there? Enough is enough. I gave Marlowe the choice yesterday (and today) bottle or diapers. She chose diapers (sigh. so stubborn. move forward, move back, move forward move back). She only gets a bottle (filled with water--- "milk is for babies") at nap time (at home--- not at daycare) and at bedtime... so now, bedtime is even more of a chore than its already been. Any tips for relaxing a
little (not so little one--- I mean, she's two. COME ON) kiddo into sleep, would be very appreciated.
Happy weekend and happy february everyone!

edit:: I should probably mention: we do have a bedtime routine! Same thing every single night... except that it was with bottle before. Dinner time, bubble time, then movie/book reading time.... once 9/930 hits its: potty time, diaper change, pj pants, feed fishy, brush teeth, hugs for jerry, hugs for mama, crib, bottle. Usually after that it's about one to two "more bottle!" or "new diaper!" or "pee pee in potty!" until she finally falls asleep.
