currently | I really like lions and sharks best

Currently is a weekly link-up with the lovely  Randalin of Harvesting Kale and I am her happy co-host each week. I hope that you can participate by writing your own Currently post (using the provided themes or your own) and please join us by linking up. What have you been spending, saving, speaking, going, sharing this week? Over here, we have been...

Spending a little money on shoes. Because kids feet grow stinkin fast! And can I just say here, publicly, to I hope a sympathetic audience, that it is a CRYING FREAKIN LOW DOWN LAME ASS SHAME that Otto never liked his giraffe Toms. And I quote, "But I really like lions and sharks best." He has bad taste. They are adorable and he wore them like four times. He wore his spiderman sandals like fourty-four thousand times. A lesser mom would have shoved those cute ass giraffes on his feet and had an Instagram party of epic proportions. Just sayin. 

Saving up for a new Ducks hoodie for myself. We've lived in Eugene for two years now and I'm pretty sure I'm officially a Ducks fan. I don't know how it happened. Sports has never ever ever been on my radar before in my whole life. Ever. But you know what... Like right this minute I can't wait for football to start up again in a couple weeks! I hope I am wearing a sweet new hoodie when it does. Fan gear, people!

Etta is Speaking so many new words. Well demands really. She understands a lot but really only busts out the words when she is requiring something. "WATER! CRACKER! BOOK!" The best new one this week was, "TRICKLE!" when I'd forgotten to put a little cold water trickle on during their bath. It's kind of trippy to have a baby growl/scream "TRICKLE!" at you. You put that trickle on like a muthafugga fast, I'll tell you that.

Going to swim lessons for Otto. I'm really proud how much more willing he is participate this year. He has a real case of anxiety when it comes to swimming. He's always had sensory sensitivity and the lack of control plus the cold water make him understandably really nervous when it comes to swimming. This year, though, he's powering through and after a few minutes of lesson he's just large and in charge enjoying himself like the other kids. Last year he was the swim lesson wall flower who opted out of every class and just hung out on the edge. So this year feels like a great stride! He's also all about the water slide when lessons are over. My little guy is finding his bravery, sniff sniff. And Etta, who hangs with mama during lessons, is all about demanding to be in the water and then making the craziest faces because it's so cold but then the second we get out throwing herself towards the water again. This girl is going to be the most gray hair making teenager in the world some day.

Sharing is becoming an issue around here. Etta demands ev. er. y. thing. And Otto requires fairness or that he get slightly more than her. So they disagree on this. And they are 4 1/2 and 1 1/2 so yelling yelling yelling!
That was this week. Here are next week's themes: 
feeling, missing, running, visiting, cooking
