To a mother has there ever been a more beautiful phrase than “I’ve got some free time.” ? Unless of course you are thinking of my second fav “I slept 9 hours straight last night.”
I’ve dictated to the Squeaker that it is naptime, in an attempt to get him a short nap before we leave the house to hit Starbucks (for caffeine, girl time, and Uno) and Whole Foods (for prenatal vitamins and other assorted supplements).
Don’t panic about the prenatals, I’m not pregnant. Every woman of childbearing age should take a good whole food prenatal vitamin. There are things you need in your system far in advance of growing a person, like folic acid and other vitamins. And no, those cheap target brand ones aren’t doing you any good at all. For more health food tips, check out the always natural super fantastic Amanda Box’s health blog (see blog roll.) See the things you learn from me when I have free time?
Perhaps one day I will retire to a mountain top and dispense advice, and snacks.
Last night was hang out night, the loose term for people coming over, eating whatever they can find that’s not nailed down, and watching whatever reruns or movie I feel like watching. I fed Jo and Tyler some awesome slow cooker pot roast and veggies with pan gravy, and I ate cake and ice cream and three cookies. Looks like I am going to have to work out all 7 days this week, instead of my normal 5. I’ve made some poor choices, and extra exercise is the consequence. With all this mild weather, I’m hoping to take Caden for a long walk in the park. Normally it’s too hot, but it’s so nice out lately!
Saturday is tea for our artistic mentor/friend Shelley, Sunday is gluten free dinner for Sarah Troyer. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to cook something completely gluten free that ISN’T a salad? I’ll take any ideas you might have.
Caden has decided to dictate that he is NOT napping right now. Mostly by grinning at me. I’ve retrieved him from his crib, and am awaiting the arrival of the girls for coffee date morning. Oh the glamour!
