TGIF (to refer to Friday or February)

January lasted forever, right? Like, January 1st seems like it was at least 3 months ago.

I’m glad it’s February (at last!) because we have some fun plans! Hiking, skiing, a vacation… it should be great! Fingers crossed that everyone stays healthy.

5 Things This Week:

+ It’s official, Isabelle is POTTY TRAINED! We have been working on this ‘unofficially’ for months, but this is the first week we really decided to leave the house with no pull-ups on. She did great! We were gone for hours on multiple days, and she didn’t have a single accident. Plus, she’s been taking 3 hour naps and waking up dry. Woohoo! Check that task off the parenting list.

+ I’m reading ‘Anything is Possible’ by Elizabeth Strout. First read ‘My Name is Lucy Barton’, then this one. Such good stuff.

+ This week my MOPS group listened to a speaker who strongly recommended this book for discussing sex with young children. I will probably write an entire post on this – but she recommended discussing sex with kids starting at age 5, and obviously discussing correct body parts with them much sooner. I now own this book and plan on reading it with Clara whenever she requests it.

+ I’m a month late, but have been doing the 30-day yoga challenge by Yoga With Adriene for a whole two days now, and I love it! I’m not sure I’m going to do it every day (okay, I know I probably won’t), but I do plan on going through the entire 30 days… no matter how long it takes!

+ This comic hits a little too close to home for me (in my perpetual sleep-training state).

Wait, two more things…

+ Did you see Will Ferrell on SNL last weekend?! I almost died laughing multiple times.

+ The girls got flu shots this week and next year I’m (obviously) doing it way sooner. Usually I don’t get flu shots, but with two little ones, it’s seeming extra likely that one little germ could take our whole family down and my sanity cannot handle that!

I hope you had a great week!

  1. That SNL was so so funny!!

  2. I LOVE Yoga with Adriene! That’s my go-to whenever I want to do yoga. I haven’t done any of her 30-day challenges in 30 consecutive days, but I’m very slowly working my way through the first one (as in, I started last summer. Haha. But I started during marathon season, and sometimes wanted a longer session than the videos provided, so I had to deviate to other ones she has instead). I seriously think she’s the greatest.

      Hahaha I’m slowly working through her 30 day challenge, too! So far I love it! She somehow makes yoga not boring and I appreciate that her videos (at least the ones I’ve done!) are under an hour in length.

  3. I need to catch up on SNL. I haven’t seen any new ones at ALL.

  4. oh YES please do a whole post on that book about talking about sex with kids! hoping every stays healthy for a good long while too!

    HOW do you potty train your kids so early?? the energy that takes is amazing to me.

    • Lisa says:

      I wrote a whole blog post on this once… but I’m not sure it takes that much more energy! The hardest part is just dealing with toddlers who can’t communicate that clearly – but my girls are super interested in it so I don’t have to do anything to convince them, I just show them where the potty is and encourage them to use it! (And clean. This all involves a lot of cleaning.)
