This week has both creeped along and flown by. The day to to day felt slow, but when I look back, I’m like ‘wait, wasn’t it just Monday yesterday?’ Funny how that works!

In other news, I’m going to attempt a new Friday series on MIS. I say attempt because sometimes it’s just that and my idea doesn’t stick. But I think this one will for a few reasons. The main one being that this will give me an outlet for my random updates and thoughts from the week.

Setting the bar low but hoping I keep up with this semi-regularly! We shall see…

ONE – Let’s talk about Big Little Lies. I’ve been loving season 2 even though it’s gotten mixed reviews by critics and others. I don’t know. I love all the character flaws and the fallout from season 1. The finale looks promising. Fingers crossed! Do you watch? Thoughts?

TWO – Have you used the Face App to make yourself look older? Vishnu and I had a little fun the other night (BEFORE we learned about the Russians and security stuff), and I was unpleasantly surprised by how old me looked. Holy wrinkles!

So here’s the thing. When looking at pictures posted by celebrities and friends, I find that the app has a huge bias towards women. The women look significantly older and my wrinkly than the men. Vishnu thinks I’m crazy for thinking that, but pay attention to the pics, and I think you’ll see what I’m talking about.

THREE – It took me over a month, but I finally figured out how to make daycare dropoffs a little easier. I let Kaiden bring his beloved football with him since it’s become a security thing. I don’t know if that’s the best answer, but I hate seeing him cry first thing in the morning, so I guess for us it is! Also, it’s not like he has it all day. The teachers take it away at some point and put it in his cubby. I really wish I had thought of this sooner!

FOUR – I hate to get all political here, but I’m going to because it’s my damn blog. I am enraged by the President’s racist comments to the four female members of the House. I know it’s just a distraction and all that, but really, “Go back to where you came from.” ARE YOU F’ING KIDDING ME!?! Three of them were born in THIS country. It’s not all that hard to take this personally when you’re the kid of immigrant parents who have done nothing but work hard for the past 37 years. I feel like he’s fueling the fire with his base, and that scares me for MANY reasons. UGH.

FIVE – Vishnu has his first 24 hour call on Saturday which means it’s just going to be me and K! This is his first in a long time, and luckily, he only has 3 Saturday and 3 Sunday shifts this year. WOO HOO!

We also have a heat wave hitting Chicago (and so many other parts of the country) this weekend, so other than the play date we have scheduled with K’s daycare bestie, I’m thinking we’ll hit up the museum (hopefully a more successful visit than last time) and/or the library.

That’s all from me! Happy Friday and weekend!

  1. My daughter is a little older and when she was Ks age her teacher encouraged parents to bring a stuffed animal to help with dropoff. Now that she’s over 3 the class is starting to phase the comfort toys out but we still need one most weeks!

    1. It totally makes sense, and I wish I had thought of it sooner! Thanks for sharing…good to know we’re not alone 🙂

  2. I must say you have had an interesting week so far, smile*. Having a deeper look at the viral hit of the face App i think it’s not safe but rather a privacy threat (my opinion). Anyways I’m glad you’re having fun with it. Now you know toys have a huge part to play in the life of our kids. Thank you for sharing with us.
