Please! Can I have some?
Funny story: Kristien wanted to make his grandparents a traditional English dinner tonight. So he went out and bought them lovely cuts of lamb with fresh mint sauce. Now, he hasnâ€™t cooked meat in nearly four years, and I think he was a bit flustered by getting such an involved and elaborate dinner on the table.
I sat down at my seat and discovered this on my plateâ€¦ Somehow the vegetarians ended up with plain broccoli and plain grilled tofu. Thatâ€™s it. Hah.
I heated up some curry.
Much better! (I hear the lamb turned out well, though!)
And yes, the pups got to eat the lamb leftovers. Lucky pups.
Oh, friends. Being a mommy was a tiring (and trying) experience today. Weâ€™d been doing so well with our sleep training but really got out of a routine over the weekend, and we are all now paying the price.
The Baby Whisperer says standing in a dark closet will help a crying baby calm down. Guess what? It does. Kind of. Now that I think about itâ€¦ it actually might help the adult more than the baby.
If you had a rough day, too, I just wanted to let you know that you can do it. Isnâ€™t that nice to hear someone say every now and then? I know I really appreciate itâ€¦ soâ€¦ you can do it. Whatever it is! Whatever youâ€™re up against. Nap wars, complicated dinners, work battles, mountains of bills. If youâ€™re reading this, youâ€™ve got it.
And if all else failsâ€¦ head to the closet. Sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. And repeat.
