Monday:What are you reading?

Posted on

I haven’t done one of these in awhile so I thought I would this week.

raising your spirited child

I plan to finish this book this week. So helpful. 

return to cardamonI am so excited to have received this ARC!! I can not wait to see where this picks up from the first book.
It’ll be a nice break.I haven’t read any middle grade books for awhile, and this series is a favourite. 🙂

I can not believe how fast this weekend went. I am so sad it’s over.  Well Saturday anyway. Sundays always feel twice as long with nothing finished.

We did successfully move kidlet over to her own big girl bed. The second successful night.
I’m happy but also sad. My baby is growing up.

TGIF: My week in Review

Posted on

The weekend is almost here. YAY.

All in all it wasn’t a bad week, a little tense but nothing overwhelming.

Part of that is thanks to my changing mind set due to a new book.

raising your spirited childIt has really helped me start seeing things in a new light.
Not to mention understand both of us so much better.
Things are slowly getting easier, day by day.

I’m learning to read her cues better, and work with her temperament.
It should all come a little easier to me by the time she is at the stage where we will be using a lot more of this. (2 years old..where does the time go?)

I’m as “spirited” as she is, if not more so, so we are an interesting combination. Of course it also means we are very alike at times.

That can be as bad as it is good.

Throw being a single parent into the  mix and you have the average day around here.

We have actually had a pretty good thing going with food lately. I am almost scared to jinx it by writing about it lol

Dinner has been moved to five and she eats a ton. Today was a bowl of chicken casserole and then she went in the fridge for her bowl of pasta then finished it off with banana.
Hello, happy mommy.

Here’s hoping we can keep up at least two well eaten meals a day on top of snacks and one grazing meal.

Happy weekend!!
