How is it Friday again already!? I am continually amazed by how quickly the days and weeks fly by, even though most of my days are extremely similar. (Wake up, care for baby, put baby to bed, housework, schoolwork, collapse, repeat!) I do feel that I’ve been much better lately about making plans and getting out during the day, which helps me feel more like a participating member of society. Here’s a handful of things that have made me smile this week:
One: tulips! These lovely tulips that I planted last fall along our front walk are blooming now, and it is so rewarding! I normally kill any plant I so much as breathe on, so the fact that these seem to be thriving is just delightful to me. They are supposed to be a mix of colors, so I’m hoping the yellow ones are just faster bloomers, but we’ll see–they are so cheerful in any case!
Two: OXO straw cup. After a brief hiatus, Henry has decided to start drinking again out of his OXO straw cup, and it is the cutest thing ever. Plus it gives me renewed hope that it will be possible to wean one day without him dying of thirst!
