Ten Thought Tuesday: February 7th 2017


  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?

Surprise, Surprise


I put Mr. Cranky down for a much needed catnap on his back about 45 minutes ago (no, actually, I put him down around 16:10 and he fell asleep around 16:45, but that is besides the point) and lo and behold when I go in to get him upon hearing him wake up with a panicked cry, I find the little man on his tummy.

He was definitely on his back when I left his room earlier.

Oh yeah, I am in for a fun night, I reckon.

And I really have to put his mattress down a notch now…

Awesome Moves Little Dude!

In the realm of learning a new skill overnight…

I put down Little Dude on his boppy this morning so that he can work on the tummy time we’ve been neglecting over the past week.

I turn around to grab my computer so that I can keep frying some of his brain cells during tummy time by letting him watch some Baby Einstein on Youtube.  When I turn back towards my son, laptop in hand, this is what I see.


WHAT!?!  When did you learn to do that Little Dude?

“Surely, it must be a fluke”, I say to myself whilst wanting to jump up and down like a little kiddie at Chuck e Cheese.  So, I put him on his tummy again, this time without the boppy.  Seconds later the little bugger is on his back again (and again, and again…).

Tummy time will never be the same again.

And I really have to stop procrastinating and finish baby-proofing…
