1. I've stayed on top of the chores this week. Things are getting done around here. No, the house isn't spotless, but it's livable and it's making me happy. And the best part of it - with my new routine - it isn't taking up my entire evening or the entire day. I'm getting it all done in 15-20 minutes during the boys nap (then taking my own nap!) and 15-20 minutes in the evening after the boys go to bed. YAY!
2. With the house in decent condition this week - I was able to invite a friend over at the last minute for dinner one night. Her husband was working late and Matt is out of town - so we let the kids play and I enjoyed some adult company.
3. I've been back in the kitchen this week making more baby food for Nathan. I've really enjoyed making most of his food and I love that I have more control over what Nathan is eating. Additionally, the variety is soooo much better when you make your own food. Face it - Gerber/Beechnut only comes in about 10 flavors....NOT homemade food! Nathan has enjoyed broccoli, cauliflower, bell peppers and parsnips, rutabaga, peach applesauce, mushroom risotto, spinach, and much more!
Bonus #4 - After having a day where I really questioned my parenting skills - I've come up with a battle plan for fixing where I fell short. With support from the right people we're going to reverse some poor decisions made by myself and others. Just wait and see! Parenting is not for the faint of heart!
