This week’s been a good one overall.  I was a little nervous about solo parenting (Vishnu’s in Germany for a bachelor party), but I think we’re managing ok.  It’s the anticipation that gets me to be honest.  If I can manage that, I’m a-okay.

Anyways, let’s get right to it…

ONE – I could not get over Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s Twitter war with Trump.  For so many reasons.  And then came Chrissy’s interview on Ellen.  I love her!

TWO – Other than solo parenting going ok, I do have to say it’s been, dare I say, easier than I thought it would be.  Especially now that K’s older and understands more.  Don’t get me wrong, we still have our moments, but it’s honestly fine.  I also took matters into my own hands and made several plans for us over the weekend. Some for me and most for both of us!  Ha!  I figured it’s better to have things lined up than risk him going stir crazy at home.  Cross your fingers for us!

THREE – My grandparents left my parents’ house this week and are now back in California with my masi (aunt).  They took a ton of pics before leaving for the airport, and every single one brought me to tears!  I know how much my parents loved having them around, so it broke my heart that they were already leaving. ~8 weeks went by fast!

FOUR – Toddlers and food.  Enough said!  Overall, K is a pretty good eater, especially at school.  I wouldn’t call him picky by any means.  But when it comes to eating dinner at home, it’s so freaking hit or miss, regardless of how routine our routine is (if you know what I mean).  For example, some days he eats everything + more, and other days, he eats a bite or two and then says he’s done.  I’ve even tried pushing dinner time back, but that doesn’t make much of a difference.  Thank goodness for daycare because at least he eats there! 

FIVE – I don’t know why I steer away from the methods that work for me, but lately, I haven’t been as diligent with my list making.  This week, I started writing everything down again, and it helped soothe my stress SO MUCH!  I felt productive and like I had an actual plan.  So now I’m going back to the basics and writing down EVERYTHING!  Stress begone!

Happy Friday and weekend!  Make it a great one.
