Our Days: Midweek


This Morning: Fitful sleep, no visible teeth poking through, so I'm thinking we're due for another bout of growing...up at 5:00 and a little bit grumpy (both him and me)...snuggles and books and warm tea helped to combat that, though...running through the mundane tasks that mark the middle of the week: laundry, dishes, meal planning...inspired by this post, I label a box "out-of-rotation toys" and fill it up and saw an immediate improvement as Silas noticed the rearranged toys and played with his little doggie with more focused concentration than ever before.

This Afternoon: My little one is so busy that he forgets to eat and wakes up frantically signing for food, I need to figure out some way to hold his attention so that he can get a few more bites in...a trip to a new park for a play date, complete with a sensory garden and Hobbit tunnels and play equipment designed with a one-year-old in mind and shoes full of sand...the delightful discovery that I can send packages via the grocery store making trips to the post office completely unnecessary...planning for dinner the one meal that Steve will cook...now that the little one is in bed, heading into the living room where I will sit next to my husband and exhale this day, ready to begin anew.

    1. Willow Creek Park, over off of Mormon Trek Rd. If you go in through the Abbey Ln. entrance, they have a great little area with tunnels leading into a little "secret" area all shaded with trees. Silas and Will loved it!

  2. Hobbit tunnels?!?! Seriously! That sounds so awesome! You are a lucky woman to have a husband that cooks. Mine does once in a blue moon and we missed this years ;)

  3. Oh yes, the toy rotation. Amazing how something old can suddenly become new again. We still rotate things around here! Your park sounds fantastic, my boy would love that.
