Well, we spent the majority of this week in the bathroom and for once it wasn’t because I had diarrhea, but because Callum started pooping on the potty. Hallelujah. I posted a couple of stories about it on Instagram but I’ll spare you guys from the photo proof here. Other than that, this is this week’s Week in Review hosted by my mothersisterwifefriend Meghan from Clean Eats Fast Feets, who kindly tagged me in this post:
We started out with gorgeous weather. As usual, Callum hijacked my phone and took pictures. This time, for once, he left the cat alone, maybe because he was so distracted by the fact that we finally have sunshine!
Jake got into see the specialist on Wednesday and he doesn’t need surgery! He got a new cast, which eased a lot of his discomfort. He chose a hot pink waterproof one! I forgot to take a picture.
I managed to do a few stroller miles with Callum, and Andrew and I got in a few evening runs together, which was so great. We signed up for a half marathon in Arizona at the beginning of April! We are SO excited about that and now Andrew is extra motivated to get in some runs.
Callum and I spent a lot of time together at the park and in the bathroom. He finally went poo on the potty. He turns three in a couple of weeks and I was just like, no. No more poo. Just no. So, that was a huge success. Katie and I took him to WalMart and he got to pick out a toy, and then we went out for dinner and ice cream (mostly ice cream). One day last week he was just super tired and asked to go to bed. It was 1:30 and he doesn’t nap anymore but I just felt like he needed it, so we snuggled and he went straight to sleep.
We paid the price later on that evening, though, when he refused to go to bed before 10pm. So, we went to Starbucks, got him a chocolate milk and a cake pop, and sipped on some coffees.
Lora and I ran 12 miles together on Saturday and we literally, and I mean literally talked the entire time. We both finished and didn’t even remember running. After that, Katie, Callum and I picked up Jake, grabbed some coffees and went to visit the pregnant and nursing cows at our local dairy farm. Random, I know. This was one of the babies:
We dropped Jake off and then headed to the park.
The good part about rain is that it washes away the snow and it makes mud puddles!
I took Callum to Fort Langley on Sunday, or rather, I should say that Callum took me. He lives and breathes for the trains there. There is one train that stands still; it’s an antique and so Callum loves climbing on it while we wait for the real train to come by. We spent a lot of time walking around, jumping in puddles, eating lunch (outside, because there were no tables available inside!) and pretty much freezing to death until finally one came by.
The weather sucked, but we had boots, hoods and umbrellas and just made the best of it. Clean boots are overrated. Mud is always a sign of a good time.
Sunday was also the day of the Fort Langley half marathon, a race I have done nearly every year since it first existed. I missed it this year, but that’s okay. I want to give a shout out to my friend Tammy, who was also the nurse who helped deliver Callum three years ago! She ran her first half marathon this morning. I am SO happy for her. WTG TAMMY!!!
I think that’s it.
Do any of you guys have an armpit sweating problem? You’ll know that you do if you’re hands and feet are freezing, your teeth are chattering, but your third top layer of clothing has armpit sweat marks.
Have you ever seen a cow give birth?
What are you drinking at Starbucks right now? Has anyone tried the smoky butterscotch latté?
