I’m typing this Week in Review post at the very last second but if she’ll still have me, I’m linking up with Meghan from Clean Eats Fast Feets for this week’s WIR.
You guys are probably sick of me telling you this but last week was filled with nap time struggles. Callum is on day 3 of no naps and while it provides us with a giant slot of adult time in the evenings, I tend to go a little bat shit by about 3pm in the afternoon. I end up just giving the kid my phone, tell him to have a go at it and I curl up into the fetal position in front of the fire with a coffee. Once the caffeine sparks my brain up again, I’m okay, especially since by 5 o’clock it’s socially acceptable to pour a giant glass of wine while I make dinner.
For the first couple of days, however, I let him have a half hour nap in the stroller, but let’s just say it was very difficult to wake him after that!
My friend Kristen and her baby came over on Tuesday and while I thought Callum would be smitten with Clara, he was rather… territorial. Once he settled down a bit (stopped whipping his toys at the baby), Kristen and I could actually hold a decent conversation and it was nice to get in a visit.
I had to grab a few things at Home Sense, and while I was there I saw this broken “JOY” sign on clearance. Who on earth would buy a broken “JOY” sign?!? Is that a bad omen or WHAT?!
My friend Renata came up from Tacoma, Washington for our friend’s husband’s memorial service, so she and I got together at Wendel’s in Fort Langley for coffees. We went for a short walk to the park so that Callum could play while we caught up on life. Then on Saturday, Andrew’s parents watched Callum for us so that Andrew and I could go to the service. Our friend Jamie is the strongest woman I know. Her husband was only 40, and they’ve got three small kids. The service was amazing, and I have no doubt that Sean would have loved it. Cancer is rampant, it seems. We need a cure something fierce.
After the service, Andrew and I headed over to the Cactus Club for lunch and we talked and talked about life and God and religion, and all the deep and meaningful things. Then that evening we had Andrew’s parents over for some drinks and more great conversation.
Sunday was such a relaxing day. I decided to do a day in the life post based on that Sunday because I want to show you guys what a Sunday would look like with just Callum at home with me; it looks much different than a weekday! We ended the day with Indian food with Andrew’s parents (they’re super cool!) and some homemade boozy coffees.
Kylah popped in at around 9:30 to print off a report for school, and then Andrew and I had a really good talk about kids, divorce, the struggles that come with it all, and what we can do to make the best of it. We fell asleep holding hands. I’m so thankful that Andrew is such a giving, feeling, and caring parent to our kids.
Do you guys drink boozy coffees? What kind? How do you make them?
Would you buy that “JOY” sign?
