“Mommy play with me?”
That’s what the 2-year-old said as he ran into my room this morning first thing. So we headed downstairs and pulled out Blokus.
He’s too young to play but he loves to position the pieces. We each get 2 colors and fit the pieces together like Tetris.
He’s also too young to flip pancakes but we did it together. :)
The 8-year-old joined us for breakfast and we enjoyed our banana oat pancakes with a few chocolate chips mixed in.
Then I suited up for my #2014RunStreak run. I’ve only been doing my minimum mile because it looks like this outside…
And it’s freakin’ cold!
But getting out there every day makes me appreciate it in a weird way.
After the run I got ready for my belay class at Earth Treks.
This is a bucket list item for me. I fell in love with climbing SEVEN years ago when I got out of my own way and gave it a try at the old gym I belonged to.
Once I left that gym I really had no where else to go until I discovered Earth Treks about 20 minutes from my house.
I’ve gone 2-3 times in the past few years (taking the 8-year-old the last time) but haven’t really made time for it.
I decided to remedy that and signed up for Introduction to Climbing class.
I loved EVERY MINUTE OF IT!
Next week I have the second class and I can’t wait. There’s just something so awesome and empowering about climbing up that darn wall. It’s physical. It’s mental. It’s just fun!
On my home I called The Husband and we decided I should just stop at the grocery store on the way.
There was only one problem. I was STARVING. So I decided to treat myself to lunch and hit the Indian restaurant next to the grocery store.
No one likes Indian in my house but me so it’s a rare treat.
So is having a quiet lunch to myself. I really enjoyed just sitting in the restaurant alone watching the snow fall.
Side note: If you’ve never dined alone, do it.
When I got home the boys were having a tennis lesson from Dad.
The Husband has rediscovered his love of tennis this past year and has joined a few leagues. I’m happy and proud of him. He needed an outlet and I can see a difference in him since he started playing.
Although, he’s still a fan of the bird.
LOL, That photo cracks me up. I was taking a photo of the ingredients I use for my recover shake when I told him to smile. He then said, “Wait, I’m in this shot?” And BAM the bird went up.
I then showed off my new knot making skills to him.
He was quite impressed.
We soon got ready for dinner. I picked up a rotisserie chicken and roasted some cauliflower on the side. We sat down and I asked the boys to smile. One was eating, one turned his head and one made a face.
Those be my boys.
After dinner I took the bones to make a stock, which I will simmer all night.
The Husband went off to tennis practice and the kids and I finished our chores.
Including the finishing touches on the Pinewood Derby car!
I’m so proud of him. He came up with the idea and built most of it. I just helped him cut and guided the paint technique. We race in a few weeks!
Sunday night always ends in a bath.
And “Little Bean” and I play “Baby” when it’s time to get out.
One day I won’t be able to do that, but I’m trying to stay as strong as possible to help make it last. :)
Hope you had a fabulous weekend. I’m off to enjoy the rest of the Grammys.
