This weekend Mon Cœur (MC) and I had a chance to catch up from the past week and spend some quality time while Chou chou was out of town.
We went shopping and found some birthday gifts and Christmas gifts and went grocery shopping too. I was looking for 2 or 3T dresses and was surprised to not find anything. The only dresses there were were holiday dresses. MC does have some cute sleeveless dresses, so until I find or make some, we can do some layering.
Sunday we slept in (until 6:45am!) and had coffee and eggs together. Then we read a book that was a blast from my Kindergarten past (We’re Going on a Bear Hunt). Afterwards we got crafty making handprint turkeys.
We sorted and counted piggy’s coins, since I had run out of quarters. Daycare has been on the ball helping MC with potty training, and she was so independent and committed to continuing with it over the weekend. We’ve been working on potty training for a while, so this was a nice change!
I’ve started planning our Thanksgiving celebration and gathering, and am grateful to have such wonderful family and friends close by who will be joining us this year.
Today when I arrived in the classroom, a colleague and friend surprised me with a beautiful Winter’s Star Camellia, so I am grateful to have a new flower to plant in our butterfly garden. If we get home in time today, we will go out in the garden and plant it. MC and I had just walked the garden yesterday and I was lamenting the fact that I hadn’t done anything new recently, so I am glad to have this new addition.
This week as we continue in our new routine, I am trying to keep patient, and to take time and to be grateful for the little things in life.
