- Eating everything in sight and then lamenting the fact that I've eaten everything in sight. And then to cheer myself up from all of the lamenting, I eat some more to make myself feel better. I should write a book about healthy eating habits and how to properly deal with one's emotions.
- Planning the twins' birthday party. I know I mentioned the other day that party-planning is "in full effect," but I don't know that I've adequately admitted to my obsession publicly. I spent more than 2 hours picking out bibs on etsy this weekend. Thankfully, I found some that are perfect from this shop, but that's 2+ hours of my life that I will never get back. And never mind the fact that they will wear the bibs for all of a few minutes.
- Not setting my alarm clock on the weekends. This is related to the first point above, but I cannot fully explain the feeling of freedom I experience when I turn the alarm clock switch to "off" on Friday nights.
-Nap time. This requires no explanation. I realize I am only a SAHM 2 days a week, but those 2 days are pretty exhausting (as are the other 5, but during the other 5, I (usually) don't have anyone yelling in my ear, wiping snot on my pants, or throwing their sippy cups on the floor 7,000 times in a row).
It is amazing how beneficial it is for all 4 of us when nap time goes well: the babies get some much-needed sleep, Brian gets some much-needed time to play video games, and I get some much-needed time to peruse chevron printed bibs on etsy. Oh, and the dogs even get some much-needed time napping on the floor without someone whacking them with puzzle pieces or running them over with a walker.
- These. Please refer to point #2 above.
Yes, I realize his buckle is too low. We do our best to pull it all the way up to his armpits and sometimes we fail. Good thing we are perfect at everything else related to parenting, right?
Thankful to report Pink Ellie #2 is doing her job!
