Some days, I really feel like I have my shhhhh all together, if you know what I mean. Henry is super happy, Iâ€™m keeping the house all tidy, Iâ€™m getting my work done, and Iâ€™m even showered and wearing real people clothes. Other daysâ€¦ not so much.
I canâ€™t help but feel totally flustered when I look at the clock and realize itâ€™s 9:00 PM, Iâ€™m still wearing my pajamas, someone smells (and itâ€™s me), I havenâ€™t eaten since noon, and thereâ€™s spit-up down the back of my shirt. This, I know, is just part of life with a baby, which is totally fine. But still… I much prefer those pulled-together-supermom kind of days.
It mightâ€™ve been a flustered day, but Henry and I did manage to build an IKEA bed (he sucks at using the screwdriver) and take the dogs on a long walk. In the dark.
Hey, at least it got done, right?
Dinner was kind of a mish-mash â€“ although I did make an excellent side dish; Iâ€™ll share the recipe tomorrow â€“ so letâ€™s flashback to last nightâ€™s dinner, which was really tasty and worth sharing.
Steamed collard greens (made using this method)
Roasted potatoes and carrots
A lake of Bone Suckinâ€™ BBQ sauce
Bob Red Mill GF Cornbread
