Wednesday’s Words of the Week

I thought I’d try something different this week.  Instead of doing a TTT to share some random thoughts or a Wordless Wednesday, I figured I’d try to summarize the last seven days in seven words (plus a short description) or less.

So, how were the past seven days at the mommytrainingwheels household, you ask?

  1. Yawn:  What do you get when you take a sick partner who keeps himself up because of a nasty cough, a teething toddler (yup those top second molars decided to announce their presence) and a very pregnant mama?  A family of zombies who try their darnedest to function despite major fatigue.
  2. Jealousy:  This is what happens when the toddler who has always been the center of attention at daycare feels like he has become second fiddle because he now has to compete for attention with a newly arrived cute-as-a-button ten-month old.  Oh my!  (It’s actually not that bad – you can read all about it tomorrow).
  3. Fear:  Because, holy crap, I’m going to be a mom of two under two in the next couple of weeks!
  4. Excitement:  See “fear”.
  5. Independence:  The little guy developed the ability to put on his rain boots on his own.  He is now almost able to put his shirts on by himself (he can get his head and an arm through) and is working hard on putting his shorts on (except he almost always puts both legs through the same hole and so ends up looking like he is wearing a very tight skirt lol).

How have you past seven days gone?  Anyone else up to trying to sum them up in seven words or less?
