OOTD {Week 9}

Happy Friday Friends! Today, I am linking up with OT&ET to keep me writing and reflecting. We have very little planned this weeeknd and I couldn’t be happier. I am thinking the chilly temps call for banana bread and soup on the stove and just some quiet time in at home.

Loving that the next two weekends will have a babysitter on Saturday night and get a chance to be adults. These past few weeks we haven’t had a lot of adult time and I think we need it.  Not to mention I am looking forward to a good meal or two and hopefully meeting one of my best friend’s new addition!

Listening to Cate and Brady bicker. They never really fight but when they do it usually results with both of them in tears. Brady is so so patient with Cate but there are days when he just wants her to leave him alone which I totally get. And when she doesn’t he usually pushes her away and then they both end up crying- him because he feels bad and wants to be left alone and her because “Bwady push me” with full water works. Today, the whole car ride to school, Cate kept repeating that he pushed her and Brady kept telling her that he needs to leave her alone. This is just the beginning I am guessing…

Worrying about what to do with Brady next year and knowing we will be faced with the same decision with Cate in two years.  With an October and September birthday respectively, we are not only faced with our kids being the oldest kids in their class but daycare becomes a big decision. Repeat preschool in the daycare we are currently in, move him to a parochial full day junior kindergarten for a year, or hire a nanny and a part time program… ack! The possibilities are endless and even with a spreadsheet detailing pros and cons of each I am convinced I will make the wrong decision.

Reading all the things in life right now.  Every single group, meeting, person I know has me reading something and yet I find myself craving some personal reading for fun.  For school I am reading Choke by Sian Beilock and Give and Take by Adam Grant. I have to tell you that Give and Take is really interesting to read.  You will silently add a label to every single person you talk to after reading it.  What I am dying to read is Allegiant by Veronica Roth. This is the final book in a trilogy that I am obsessed with. It will have to wait until I get these other two done for work.

Singing Christmas tunes in my head. Did you know that Christmas is only nine weeks away from this past Wednesday. It is and I know I need to respect the turkey but I love me some Christmas music and I can’t wait that is all we hear on the radio.


Have a great weekend! Hope you stay warm!
