So it’s been a few days. My baby girl woke up sick on Friday morning after having a horrible nights sleep on Thursday….which means a horrible night sleep for mom. After 2 nights of that I was exhausted. Thankfully it was only 2 nights. She seems to be on the mend with night sleep and is clearing up with the snotty/runny nose. Thankfully, she’s a happy sick kid and doesn’t give me too much grief during the day. Needless to say I didn’t do much above taking care of her for a few days.
A few things I did accomplish these last few days:
Crockpot Pumpkin Oats - although I used this recipe from her Instagram page and the only thing I didn’t like about it was that it wasn’t sweet….then I read her blog recipe…so I’m going to try that one next! I love her blog and now that she’s a mom it’s even more fun for me to see how she handles her day because it shows me it’s possible. Plus she’s great spiritual inspiration and got me hooked on the daily devotional She Reads Truth.
Wonder Woman Costume – I finally stayed up late the two nights Amelia slept well and finished her costume. I’m tempted to cut the sleeves to make it short sleeve. Haven’t decided yet. Still need to finish her “boots” (red socks with white line down front) and attaching her Lasso of Truth to her tutu. Here’s a pic of the finished product so far.
I also received an Kuerig from my hubby! I said I would never have one but now that I’m trying to wake before the household and have some quiet time, it definitely comes in handy for my quick first (and only) cup of coffee. I feel like I sold out a bit on the french press and trying to keep it simple, but the exhausted mom in me doesn’t really care. I can see myself wanting to kiss it and say good morning each day.
I promise I’ll get better with pictures. I’m still trying to get used to blogging daily-ish.
