Ten Thought Tuesday: February 14th 2017

TTT

    1. Well, it’s February 14th today.  Happy Valentines Day!
    2. Charles and Amélie got all prettied up this morning for daycare.  We even had time to play around with some Snapchat filters before putting on our coats and heading out the door.
    3. Yesterday, I finally got around to crocheting the new beanie I’ve been promising my husband for months.  I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out! fullsizerender-16
    4. Elliot’s top right central incisor finally cut, and his left one is on the verge of cutting.  He discovered his little tooth yesterday and was having fun grinding his teeth together.
    5. Today’s a run day, yay!  Unfortunately, the track I usually run on is closed all week due to an event being held.  This means that I’ll be doing today’s run (and my next two) on a treadmill.  I’m not super thrilled because running in place facing a window overlooking a parking lot doesn’t sound too appealing, but I’ll give it a try!
    6. I’ve currently working on leaning the crocodile stitch for my next crochet project.  I’ll give you guys a sneak peek of what I’m working on tomorrow.
    7. For the second morning in a row, I’ve found Elliot turned over on his tummy.  And for the second morning in a row, he wasn’t overly-excited about it.  Hahaha!
    8. Amélie and Charles spent the weekend over at my parents’ house.  When I asked my daughter what she did here’s what she said:
        • She watched a movie with a mean man wearing a dress in a cage; (my parents have no idea which movie she’s referring to)
        • She played outside and saw a snake pooping; (actually, the snake was shedding its skin in an indoor terrarium – though she actually did play outside as well)
        • She ate a sandwich with different little things inside for breakfast. (she had cereal for breakfast)

      Gotta love how a two year old views the world LOL!

    9. Yesterday I washed the kids’ clothing.  I’ll probably have to do another load tomorrow.  Oh joy…
    10. The Final Fantasy concert by Distant Worlds last Saturday was amazing.  My husband and I also discovered a really delicious Japanese tapas bar called Kinoya Izakaya.  If you’re ever in Montreal, I strongly recommend!

What’s on your mind this Tuesday?

  1. Today is a run day.  Yay!  I can’t wait to get out on the track this evening!
  2. My house is a mess…in every way possible.  Once I’m done this post, I really have to stop procrastinating.
  3. Tonight we’re either eating chicken fajitas or quesadillas, I’m not sure yet.
  4. After being away from the office for two weeks, leaving before the kids awaken and arriving once they’re in bed, my husband is finally back!  He’s really happy about it and the kids will be too.
  5. After learning to roll from back to front a couple of days ago, I think Elliot’s working on crawling.  It’s not easy though as we have wooden floors and he keeps slipping.
  6. I’ve been having so much trouble with Charles at bedtime.  He goes to bed fine, but has been keeping himself awake (sometimes until 9pm) for the past few weeks.  I’m fresh out of strategies!
  7. This coming weekend, my husband and I are going to a concert at Place-des-Arts.  The orchestra is going to be playing music from the Final Fantasy franchise. #geeksunite
  8. Are you a coffee or a tea person?  I just bought the most amazing cinnamon chai rooibos.  It’s a fragrant, a bit spicy and a tad sweet.  The best part?  Because it’s a rooibos, it’s caffeine free!
  9. My husband and I played Jenga with Charles a couple of weeks ago.  Funniest.  Thing.  Ever!  The first time the tower fell, it was because of Charles.  I swear he teleported himself to my lap and koala-hugged my neck because he was so surprised.
  10. Amélie has taken to starting a new roll of toilet paper every time she wipes herself.  We have a nice collection of rolls with different amounts of toilet paper on them in the cabinet beside the toilet.

What’s on your mind today?

Ten Thought Tuesday: December 9th 2014

  1. Charles has finally finished taking his Biaxin.  We were finally able to give it to him by hiding it in his soy yogurt, coconut milk or applesauce.
  2. He’s been having nightmares for the past week tough, waking up screaming in the middle of the night.  I hope they end soon.
  3. My Christmas shopping is all done.  I only have a few things to finish up and I’ll be all set.
  4. I decided that during Christmas break, I’m going to do potty training with Charles.  I don’t know how ready he is but I most certainly am…especially given that his diapers have been overflowing more and more frequently despite the fact that we’ve doubled up on inserts.
  5. The little guy received a cool remote controlled car from his “third grandma” (the receptionist at the dada’s office) for his birthday.  He is absolutely in love with it.
  6. We ordered a lovey for Amélie for Christmas (don’t tell her 😉 ) as I’m planning on starting to wean her off the swaddle when she hits four months.  Since she is getting more mobile (not rolling over yet, but she can turn on from back to side quickly), it seems like the logical thing to do.
  7. We’ve decided that we were going to be making our own bread.  I made two wonderful multigrain loaves last Saturday and some Montreal-style bagels (yum!).  I’ve also got a sourdough starter going and I can’t wait to make a loaf of sourdough bread!
  8. The kiddos and the dada came to the Christmas concert the band I play in gave last Saturday.  I’m told that they were absolutely adorable the whole time.
  9. Of course, since the concert, I now have, as my sister would put it, a karaoke of Christmas songs playing nonstop in my head.  Grrrrrr…
  10. That’s it for today, my brain can’t muster anymore random thoughts.
