Five Things


One / / / I try really hard to go to bed between 10-11pm. Max still wakes often to nurse/snuggle at night and is up for the day between 6-7am so having 8ish hours of rest is necessary to a happy day. My “bed time” doesn’t always happen, but I try. Like now, it’s 11:09pm.

Two / / / At restaurants I tend to order the same things – French onion soup (Applebee’s has the best), cobb salads, crab melts (usually like an open faced sandwich with warm crab or seafood creamy blend topped with a tomato or artichoke and cheese … mmmmm), burgers with guacamole and red onions, and pizza with pepperoni, olives, cashews and pineapple. I’m a sucker for strawberry lemonades too!
Three / / / My first interaction with my husband was telling my then-boyfriend to make his dorm mate (Dominic) be quieter while we talked on the phone.
Four / / / I do not like it when plans change. Call me a control freak. Call me organized. But once a plan is made please don’t stress me out with last minute changes. Although, I have gotten so much more relaxed since having kiddos as they’ve been teaching me the art of “go with the flow”.
Five / / / I love the rain. Hence, Washington is the perfect place for me to live! Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy sunny days too. But seeing rain on window panes and hearing it on the roof top brings a smile to my face. And this week Jemma started singing, “rain rain, go way, come gin, nuther day, Jemmie Max wanna play, go way, rain, go way” – um, yay, you’d want it to rain to if it meant you got to hear that sweet girl’s singing voice.

Bonus :) / / / As evidenced above, being a boy mama is really growing on me. I kinda sorta love it. I mean, how could I not with that sweet fella hanging out on my hip every day.

    You'd love a girl too (and after your April Fool's post I thought there was potential you may have one, lol!), but there is totally something unique about boys and their mama :)
