First and foremost, thank you for the positive response to my post about mom guilt. Totally wasn’t expecting that! Your emails, messages, etc. are what making blogging that much more of a powerful thing for me. I’m not sure how it will work when my mom leaves and especially when I go back to work, but for now, it’s a platform for me to share my journey and hopefully help/encourage people in whatever small ways I can. At the end of the day, that’s enough to keep me going!
Earlier in the week, I shared on Instagram that my mom was teaching me how to crochet. Well, you can’t say she didn’t try, but you can say crocheting is not my thing (I do plan to try at least one more time before my mom leaves). Hey, at least we got a really good laugh out of my ineptness!
Speaking of my mom still being around, I’ve been able to make quick solo trips here and there for various errands. This week that entailed a trip to the grocery store, Costco, and Michaels. Bliss…it’s truly the small things! I know eventually I’ll have to figure out how to do all of this with a baby in tow, but for now, I’m taking full advantage of being able to go at it alone. So much faster!
If you didn’t know it already, my mom’s pretty awesome. After not following through on my grand mani/pedi plans for the past few weeks, I finally made it to the nail salon because of her. She literally pushed me out the door knowing that was the only way I’d go. Ha!
And last but not least, I’m excited for the weekend because we have Friday night dinner plans with new friends and a couple of Saturday visitors who will be making their way over to hang out with Mr. K. Yahoo!
And as always, here are a few of my favorite links from the week…
OMG…this is the sweetest thing ever (and one of the most tear inducing).
These four salads look like great prep and go options (I’d obviously replace the chicken with a vegetarian protein source)
The science behind feedback – super interesting
As a boy mom, this gave me all the feels!
Annnnnnd…that’s all I have for you today! I hope you have a wonderful Friday and an even better weekend. 🙂
