Tiny Happy Tuesday on a Wednesday? Sounds good to me! Technically I did write most of this on Tuesday, but then Shawn had band practice so I did bedtime solo and by the time Poppy stopped crushing my spirit and actually fell asleep, I was too depleted to return to it. So here we are. On Wednesday. Fortunately it’s my blog and I make the rules. Onward!
I’m currently experiencing a bit of a parenting low season. I reached out for help in my sister group text, on Instagram, and on Facebook, and I have been inundated with book recommendations, support, cheerleading, funny memes, encouraging messages, and offers of chocolate delivery. I am absolutely stunned at the volume of love that’s been sent my way ever since I mentioned I’m struggling.
Grady is being Link from the Legend of Zelda for Hallowe’en and when he puts his costume on he transforms into character. It’s wonderful. I love this kid age where pretend play is still cool and he’s got this amazing imagination and vocabulary to draw on.
We’re doing diversity and inclusion training at work this week and it’s the kind of thing that gets me jazzed. I really enjoyed my session and the conversations I had with coworkers afterward. I hope it’s something we continue to work on and not a one-off training session to check some boxes.
Cheese. Is there a more perfect food? I don’t think there is.
What’s making you happy this week?
