Ten Thought Tuesday: March 7th

TTT

  1. This week is Spring Break which for me means “break from the normal routine of having a baby at home and two at daycare”.  I am home with all three kiddos all week.
  2. Today I’m going to go see my grandparents with my mom and the kids.  Yay!
  3. On Saturday, my husband, the kids and I went to see some friends.  With this unusual break in routine, the littles went to bed a lot later than usual.  Now, I usually insist that the kids go down at their usual time no matter where we are, but I decided to make an exception on Saturday.  Oh boy, we’re still playing catch-up with sleep and are going through ungodly amounts of crying, screaming and hysterics.
  4. On Sunday we went to the sugar shack with the kids.  They had a blast!
  5. I’m finding that though I enjoy the theme and story of the graphic novel I rented at the library last week, I’m having a lot of trouble getting through it.  It’s so unusual for me to read a graphic novel and I find that there is too much visual information for me to handle.  I’m determined to finish it though, so I may find I change my mind by the time I get to the end of it.
  6. Elliot’s nights are driving me nuts.  Besides the fact that he’s got a cold and is most likely teething (again) he spins around so much now that he can go from tummy to back and back to tummy that he either ends up with his head stuck in the corner of the crib or bangs his head on the bars whilst attempting to return to lying down on his back.  Urgh!
  7. In case you missed it on my Instragram feed (@mtwotm) here’s a picture I snapped of Charles spontaneously giving his little brother a great big hug.  Such a sweet boy!IMG_2973
  8. Tonight, we’re eating crockpot chili for supper.  It is deeeeeeeeelicious.  I’m going to have to share the recipe with you guys eventually.
  9. I’m going to have to go buy some new running shoes soon.  What a shame.  Hahaha!
  10. I’m listening to an excerpt of “How to Lose a Marathon” whilst writing this.  It isn’t easy.  Usually, when I write in English and I want to listen to something, I listen to something in French so that my brain doesn’t get confused.

Ten Thought Tuesday: February 28th

TTT

  1. Last day of February!  What!?!
  2. Today is a run day.  Once I complete my run, I will have logged in a little over 40km of running in February.  Wow.
  3. After sleeping well (only waking once during the night) for about two weeks, Elliot has started to wake every two hours again.  He has also started drooling excessively, has taken to biting me while he’s nursing and has been getting red cheeks.  I sense a tooth or two working their magic…
  4. The kids made their gingerbread house this weekend.  They had a blast.

    Notice the baby’s devious “I’m gonna find a way to touch that thing and put it in my mouth” look.  Haha!
  5. Last Friday was touski night.  I made a carrot and acorn squash soup, some baked cauliflower wedges and mini burgers.  The food was delicious and the fridge looked awesome afterwards!
  6. I realized the other day how chubby Elliot’s thighs are.  They’re so cute I just want to eat them (figuratively, of course).

    Just LOOK at those folds!
  7. My little sister just moved in to her new apartment with her boyfriend.  He’s such an amazing guy.  I’m so happy for her! ♥♥♥
  8. I’ve been meaning to improve my flexibility and decided to try yoga the other day and found this amazing yoga channel on Youtube.  To everyone out there who does yoga: I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry for ever judging yoga by thinking it was easy!  I’m going to keep working at it before going to bed because I really did enjoy it though.
  9. Thanks to Tami at Tanglewood Knots (if you like crochet, you should definitely stop by her blog!), I found a new crochet blog that has an A-MA-ZING looking CAL underway.  Take a look at the finished project and see for yourself!
  10. We went to the library over the weekend and I picked up some books for myself.  I decided to expand my horizons to more that just fantasy and mystery novels and picked up a graphic novel, a manga and a historic novel.  I’m excited to be reading for myself (ie: for fun) again!
