I’m trying to get back in the swing of this since posting has been slow lately. I used to write even if I didn’t really have anything to say, and lately I feel like I have to have a real reason to sit here, so I’m just writing today. There are no transitions here, reader.
I think Jude looked at a calendar and saw that he is turning two this week and decided to start the real tantrums Because I thought I knew what a tantrum was, but as it turns out, I didn’t. And yesterday he showed me what it really means when you pitch a fit over something like not wanting to get out of your car seat in the garage which is something we all could get passionate about, I suppose. The terrible twos have really arrived, I think. And I am telling myself that I want him to have an independent spirit and that all of this is perfectly developmentally appropriate. But it’s still hard.
I think it’s the combination of so many new birthday toys and some stale things that need to change around here, but my house is driving me insane this week. Everyday I have a to-do list of things that should be crossed off, and everyday I fall short. I’m thinking I need to make a list with one thing on it, and then I can feel accomplished.
My kitchen is also a bit stale. I’m realizing I make the same fifteen or so dishes over and over and over and that I am really bad at side dishes, as in 99% of what I make these days seems to be a one-pot meal. So I signed up for Relish Relish with a Mamapedia deal this week. I’m ready for it to bring something new here in my kitchen. I think I’ll start today with some iced pumpkin cookies.
Working on bringing my mojo back at home, in the kitchen, and on this blog. If I say it aloud here, it will happen right?
