Currently is a weekly link-up that I happily co-host with ♥ Randalin ♥ of Harvesting Kale. We hope that you can participate by writing your own Currently post (using our themes or your own) and please join us by linking up. What have you been learning, growing, buying, loving, wishing this week? Over here, we have been...
Learning how quickly your body can go from sleep-deprived to rested and right back to sleep-deprived. As of yesterday morning I thought my life might be over. Loretta! My love. She is a wild thing complete with nighttime wild rumpus. She had been up quite a bit the night before and I was a mess. Well, last night I fell asleep (full makeup, dinner breath, yo) at 7:30 doing Otto's bedtime and I slept straight through til 4:30, with the light still on from reading Pippi Longstocking, and BAM! I feel like a new woman! Hello cuppa joe and a couple of Peeps for breakfast! I'm here. I'm alive! I'm ALIIIIVE!
Otto is Growing into such a strapping young kid with a golden head of shag. He's tall and stout so he still has a baby-ness about him that I just love and want to hang onto because, guys, he is going to be 5 in a few months. Five. How did THAT happen? That is super duper old. That is doing things like reading "Candied Bacon" on a menu and blowing our minds. That is asking tough questions like, "Mom, how many days until I die?" (ps. I said, well that will be like 100 years times 365 days so something like 36,500). Yeah, ugh. And whoa. And wow. Anyways, he will be taller than me by the time he's 10, I guarantee it. And he just catches eyes left and right. He is a little old lady magnet. And that hair, people. I trimmed up the bottom inch because it was basically a swirly off-center rat tail (he inherited my multiple cowlicks including varying degrees of swirl, yay) but dudes, that is epic hair he's growing out. I wonder how long this Mick Jagger phase will last?
Buying not much. Well I did just buy both kids some new shoes. Etta is getting ready for a toddler size 6 and Otto is in a little kid 12. Giant dogs on these little chickens.
Loving warm blankets, good books, and piping hot drinks. I love a good makeout session with night coffee, especially when there's a chill in the air. Time to get some Bailey's in the house. Yay, fall.
Etta is Wishing she could dance all day and night. She has so many signature moves (chin to chest, tummy out, arms at sides, and march!), she has favorite songs (errbody get up!), and the music is just in her bones. We will find a baby dance class for her soon, like as soon as soccer season is over because I don't have it in me to take on anything else right now. But she will absolutely love it.
That was this week. Here are next week's themes:
