The deal: Use our themes or use your own - just let us know what is 'currently' going on with you! Be sure to stop by and say hello to the other bloggers linking up - especially to my amazing co-host at Harvesting Kale.
This week's themes: battling, surfing, jumping, taking, making
This week we have been... Battling screen time. A little five-year-old someone got a little overindulged with the iPad during our past month of craziness and he's become an iPad fiend. I don't know if we've necessarily won this battle. What kind of rules do you guys have about screen time? We have a hard time saying no to him playing with awesome apps like GarageBand, for example. I mean, that's like limiting a kid's time with a room full of instruments in a recording studio. I don't even have an answer to this. It's just become apparent that he's yearning to iPad more than I'm comfortable with and we need to come up with some reasonable ground rules.
Otto has been Surfing with Siri asking her things like, "Siri, where is there candy hidden in this house?" Luckily Siri is not yet all-knowing. The answer is: in the top cupboard above the coffee cups and may he never find it!
Loretta has been Jumping, working on winking (girlfriend actually gets a one-eyed wink in every third time or so), holding up 2 fingers and saying "two!", identifying when there are two of anything, "two feet! two shoes! two cookies! two!" and dancing with a new move where she leans on the wall with one hand and crosses her foot over her thigh. You guys this dance move is sassy. This girl is sassy. And she's just like living life to the extreme, always. It's a joy to observe.
I have been Taking baby steps towards feeling like less of a piece of crap. Vitamin D. Time Outside. I did a three gratitudes blog post yesterday and am hoping to do that every day that I don't have another blog post in mind (which is like almost every non-Thursday since I'm such a crappy blogger lately) and coming soon I'm hoping to get back on track not-eating-everything and jogging. We'll see what happens but anyways, at least I'm trying. Go Team Trying!
and we've all been Making Legos on the kitchen table and therefore eating meals in the living room so as not to upset the Lego creations. Can I file this under A Beautiful Mess or do I have to file it under Lazy People Who Live in a Chaos Pile?
That was this week and here are next week's themes:
facing, snapping, counting, loving, hopping
