We had a very low key weekend so there isn’t too much to update on. Tom was in Vegas for work and got home on Saturday. It was a rainy day so we went to the mall, but not for long since it was so crowded we couldn’t stand it, and we finally got out for a date night sans baby thanks to his parents babysitting. Apparently MG screamed the whole time we were gone (I also had to pick her up from my Mops meeting early Friday because she was inconsolable) so we clearly are still dealing with some attachment issues. I can’t even leave the room when I’m home alone with her without her getting upset. At this point I’m really not sure what to do.
Sunday we watched church online as I couldn’t leave MG in the nursery knowing the screaming fits she had the two days before, and went to a park we had never been to before, which was disappointing to say the least. At least we got a couple nice pictures so it wasn’t a complete waste.
Now it feels like the week is almost over with, how does time go so fast when you’re a parent? It’s cold and gloomy here so we haven’t been up to too much. Last night I went to an amazing women’s night of worship held at a church here in Atlanta and today we had a really nice shopping play date.
Smelling: Our Christmas tree and the homemade cookies I just made. It’s perfect. If you’re wondering, I’m writing this in advance of publishing, I’m not baking cookies insanely early in the morning. Or maybe I am, don’t judge me.
Eating: Those same cookies – chocolate chip. Yum.
Drinking: Mint Hot Chocolate – I make it by adding a Dove mint chocolate to regular hot chocolate. It’s amazing.
Watching: MG make a mess eating zucchini. This will be fun to clean up.
Hearing: Christmas music all day every day. I’ve bust out some old Christmas piano music as well and have been playing that.
Thinking: About how to be more present. Also about the zillion things I want to do to our house. And my to-do list. And all the things that cause me not to be more present. And about how to break this cycle. You get the point.
Feeling: Tired. Always.
Looking Forward To: Next weekend! With a friend coming in town and lots going on I have a feeling it is going to be a good one!
