It feels odd to start a series in the middle of the year, but that’s what I’m doing.
Today I’m sharing my favorite moments, lessons, posts, funnies, etc. from the past month.
We went back to work this month. There are only a handful of us in a very large office/warehouse and we all keep our distance, but it’s nice to be within conversation-shouting distance of other adults.
We took M swimming last weekend and SHE LOVED IT just like I thought she would! She loves baths and doesn’t mind water on her face one bit. I’d hoped to have her in swim classes by now but COVID ruins all the things. Oh well, swimming with Mama is the next best thing.
K has been cooking more and I AM A-OK WITH IT. Our grill took a poo so we splurged on a new outdoor griddle and K is making sure we get our moneys worth! Yay!
Worrying about tomorrow steals today’s joy. Often when my anxiety creeps up I tell myself that it’s a waste of time and energy to worry about something that’s 100% out of my control… but lately I’ve been struggling. And I’ve been trying to “anticipate” bad habits that K or M might form and then reacting to them long before it’s an issue… which just creates an issue. Essentially I just need to chill.
My sister-in-law Christina is one of the cutest humans I know. This Easter was a bust as far as family get-togethers go but you need to pin/save/bookmark these adorable cupcakes for next year!
This collection of meals from new-mom Carolann is so impressive. She and her husband put in the time and effort before baby M was born and it paid off SO MUCH for them. And then she shared their recipes and tips for other folks!
Pixar released a new short on Disney + called OUT. It’s so adorable and heartwarming. 10 out of 10, would recommend ♥
From My Blog
I didn’t post much this month.
I shared my favorite Aldi finds at the beginning of the month.
I also shared my initial discomfort and anxiety about becoming MOM.
Typically I will include funnies but it’s late and I don’t have any saved so I’m wrapping this up for now.
What was your favorite moment from the month?
