Our week in review

by - April 15, 2018

Hello folks, the last few weeks have been busy but truly amazing. This week I am overwhelmed with emotions as I can’t stop thinking about the Humboldt tragedy. My heart is heavy for all affected by this catastrophe. These thoughts go beyond this tragedy. As I witness thousands of Canadians pay homage this week by leaving their hockey sticks out and wearing their jerseys I am reminded to slow down and be thankful. Life is so precious and can be taken away anytime. I am also reminded that there is still good in this world and compassion still exists, which gives me hope for my children’s future.

With that being said, I've adopted a new laid back parenting approach and it's really is making a huge difference. I am less stressed. This week there were only a couple tantrums and everyone is happier. The house does not have to be cleaned right away, the laundry can wait, if baby peanut wants to stay in her pj’s and rock a messy bun all day... so be it.

Baby bean has grown so much. I know I say that a lot but seriously, I feel like he grows every night. I tuck him in to bed and in the morning bam! He’s bigger!! He’s currently on a purée strike and refuses to eat anything puréed except for peas and prunes. I've started him on table food and he absolutely loves it. He’s gotten super fast at rolling not crawling yet but I'm sure it won't be long.

Swim lessons started for Baby Peanut and she absolutely loves the lesson part but not the getting dressed and coming home part. She threw in the words of the Mr ”the most embarrassing tantrum ever” in the change room. He carried her out kicking and screaming. Hopefully history does not repeat itself this week. She is such a sweet and compassionate girl I can’t believe she’s grown up so fast. We have the best conversations during our daily walk and she loves to correct me when I’m wrong and I’m wrong quite often. She checks up on me and give me kisses when I’m not feeling well. She’s so freakin amazing I’m in awe that I made her.

Well that’s about it folks. Hold your loved one closer and don’t sweat the small stuff. Thanks for sticking around and reading. Until next time
