Today started out gloriously! The baby woke up at 7AM (after 2 middle of the night feedings) and fell back asleep! The husband and the Little Guy were both sleeping too so I had a good 45 minutes all to myself. It was WONDERFUL.
I put on some music…
Soon I was joined by Little Guy. We cracked open a can of fruit.
I try REALLY hard to always serve fruit with breakfast. Even if it’s something canned.
Little Guy had some cereal as well and I made myself a bowl of oatmeal topped with dried apricots, almonds and honey…
We then hung out for a bit. Interacting with the baby and getting him to smile. Here’s Little Guy is showing him all his LEGO toys.
It was so precious.
Soon it was time to get to work. I have 3 days to get all the last minute prep for the conference done. That’s sign printing, event orders, room set ups, volunteer organizing and swag bag stuffing.
Thankfully my friend and her son came to help. I don’t know WHAT we would have done without them.
What did Little Bean do why we worked our tails off?
How stinkin’ cute is HE! I mean seriously.
For lunch I ordered everyone pizza.
For "the girls" we got a thin crust with tons of veggies and "the boys" requested traditional pepperoni.
After about another 2 hours of bag stuffing I decided to take a cue from the baby and rest. I decided to treat myself to a little snack.
Then it was nap city…
I fell asleep for about an hour and so did Little Bean.
After that I stuffed a few more bags then made a quick dinner. Leftovers for Little Guy and some veggies, pita and hummus for me.
After the kids went to bed I treated myself to some banana soft-serve with a handful of cocoa almonds.
Right now my garage looks like this…
I’m about 90% done with the bags. I cannot believe how time consuming it’s been!
Tomorrow is going to be a CRAZY day. The Dishwasher repair guy is coming at 8am. I have an 11AM call with the hotel event planner. 1:15 is parent teacher meeting time at school. Somewhere in there I have to find my way to the printer. And all that with baby and 5 year old. It’s going to be and interesting day and an insane week!
