I am having a very good day! Things started off kind of wonky. I was snoozing away when I heard, “Mommy? Mommy?” in a tiny stage whisper. I whipped around to see Henry next to the bed (he’s never come into our room before!) and panicked because Claire was still asleep in the cosleeper <—she’s back next to me. The nursery thing was killing me with her nighttime wakeups. He said, “I broke my curtain,” and I went into his room to see this:
Arg. So fixing that is on agenda for today!
I had my Vega One smoothie (I am sooo into these things now), and then hustled everyone out the door. Today was dress-up day at Henry’s school. On Wednesday, he wanted to dress-up like a crocodile so I borrowed a friend’s dinosaur costume and told him it was a crocodile. Close enough, right? It totally worked. He loved it!
Then I was off to boot camp. You guys – I’ve made it to boot camp THREE TIMES this week! THREE TIMES. And I swam 1200 yards yesterday. I’m so proud. These boot camps are super challenging for me, and sometimes I feel like I’m gonna die in the middle of class, but I try to hang tough.
70 tricep dips nearly broke my soul, especially after those 80 bicep band curls. Oh, and it was a “team” workout so everyone waited (and by “wait” I mean did jumping jacks) until everyone else was finished before moving onto the next move. And for the 60 second plank, if anyone fell down, we all had to start over! I was scared I was going to be the guilty party – Claire destroyed my abs. But seriously, I really like the group aspect of these workouts, and the instructors are so nice. I’m glad I found this!
Post workout snack was some of these cookies I made yesterday – I’m not sure if I’m going to share the recipe because it’s not peeerfect. But they are pretty good! The base of the cookie is almond and chickpeas. No flour at all. Cool, huh?
After I showered, Claire and I went to see Julie. She’s pregnant! Boy or girl?! I know, but I’ve been sworn to secrecy!
Can you tell that Claire has entered the drool stage and Henry is into sea life now?!
We had lunch afterwards.
I had black bean tacos with yummy globs of cheese sauce.
After lots of chatting, we parted ways so I could go pick up Henry. We came home and did tummy time with Claire, which is actually one of Henry’s favorite things to do with her.
<3 <3 <3 Love these two. I’m feeling really thankful and blessed lately. My life is very full and very complete and I’m grateful for it all.
I hope YOU have a fabulous weekend!
I love reading your blog! You are so down to earth, honest, fun, and write in a way that I think connects with many! Thank you. Have a wonderful weekend.
