Hi, guys! Happy MONDAY! 🙂
Our morning started bright and EARLY. A couple of weeks ago, I started getting up around 4:30/5:00 AM on Mondays and Fridays (when Quinn doesn’t go to school) to get a jumpstart on my work. It’s worked out really well since the early morning hours are quiet, and I’m alone with my iced coffee, so I get a ton accomplished! 😉 But, this morning, Quinn woke up shortly after I did. I put him back to bed, but he only stayed in his room for about 20 minutes before he came into my office insisting that he just wasn’t tired. Whomp whomp. On the plus side, however, Quinn was awake early enough to say goodbye to Dada before he left for school. There were lots of Monday morning “snugs” for all of us! 🙂
I had some leftover canned pumpkin, so I whipped up a delicious oatmeal mixture yesterday afternoon and stored it in the fridge overnight. In the morning, I reheated it in the microwave and added a scoop of Teddie Peanut Butter – and just like that breakfast was done!
Here’s the “recipe” and macro breakdown.
After breakfast, I got Quinn and myself ready for the day. When I walked into his bedroom, I smiled to myself because I saw the random Pull-Up that I left on his dresser a few weeks ago.
On Saturday night when Mal and I were out to dinner with friends, I received a text from our babysitter asking if Quinn wears Pull-Ups to bed. Quinn told her that he didn’t, but she wanted to double-check, thinking maybe I left it out for her to put on him. I texted her back saying that he was all set and didn’t need to wear a Pull-Up for bed, so everything worked out just fine. Mal, of course, asked if everything was okay back at home, so I told him what happened. He and our friends thought I was ridiculous for “saving” a Pull-Up, but, for some reason I just wasn’t able to throw it out. It’s my baby’s last diaper! I actually threw it out this morning, but I still I can’t believe my “baby” is so grown up. Anyway… that was quite the tangent! 🙂
Once we got ourselves ready for the day, Quinn and I headed to CrossFit for a “gym day” followed by a trip to the library.
Both of us had books to return. We also picked out new books for Quinn, and then I picked up a couple that we on hold for me. (I’m seriously loving the library lately – requesting books online was SO EASY!) I’ve heard great things about The Mind-Gut Connection and can’t wait to dive into it!
After the library, we swung by Hornstra Farm to purchase our milk, eggs, and butter for the week. As soon as we entered the farm store, Quinn went RIGHT for the honey sticks. He lovvvveesss honey! 🙂
Back at home, we were both more than ready for lunch. Thankfully, I had a bunch of leftovers in the fridge for the both of us. Quinn had Banza pasta with butter, apple sauce, and milk, and I threw together some ground beef, rice, sautéed kale, Pizza Seasoning, and Parmesan cheese. It was delicious!
Question of the Day
Parents out there: What’s one “weird” baby item(s) that you’ve saved?
P.S. There were some technology issues with the CNC Fall Macro Challenge, so I’m leaving it open to another week or so. If you already signed up, but never received the emails, try signing up again and/or using a different email address. I apologize for the confusion. Technology and I can’t seem to get along!
