So yesterday went a little something like this…
Woke up hungry. Rejoiced that I didn’t have to dirty a bowl to make oatmeal.
Dirtied a bowl anyways.
Plain 2% Chobani with strawberry jam mixed in + 1 oatmeal cup.
Then I proceeded to get my behind handed to me, yet again, by Tina. 45 minutes of a full body circuit later in my home gym (…ok, bonus room), I was sweaty… and hungry.
After a quick shower and a glance at the clock to see how many minutes of nap time remained, I threw together this:
A grain (quinoa), a green (steamed kale) and a bean (cannellini). A new favorite. Plus herbed goat cheese, a tomato and pepper.
Right on cue, Hailey woke up. I looked out at the sunshine as I fed her and decided we needed to get out of the house.
20 minutes later I learned that Barnes and Noble doesn’t carry the Baby Led Weaning cookbook. Bummer. So instead, I set up my computer to get some work done, but quickly realized I couldn’t connect to wi-fi. I decided to take it as a sign to just eat my snack and enjoy the fresh air with my baby girl instead.
Do you see what I see? She’s not very subtle.
We headed home and I decided that eating again sounded like a good idea. After all, I had to share my snack.
Spinach, greens, boiled egg (yolk shared with Hailey), purple cabbage (because it was in the fridge), feta and Newman’s Own Light Balsamic.
High five for extra veggies!
Someone overdid it with the samples…
Totally kidding. Despite her reaching, I don’t take baby led weaning that literally. I ended up going with Le Freak IPA from Green Flash Breweries. At 9.2%, I’m glad I just sipped on it!
We split an order of fried dough (ahem, breadsticks) from The Salty Caper with some friends. Then ordered their house pie, which was fabulous.
Pesto-ricotta base, mozzarella, fresh tomato and pine nuts. The pine nuts were key. I ate 2.5 slices… if you count giving the crust to Hailey on the third slice as eating only half of it.
After dinner I came home and was assured by my twitter and facebook friends that my need for at least 8 hours a night of solid sleep was totally normal. Thank goodness I’m not alone. I was in bed asleep by 10. It was a good day.
How many hours of sleep do you require each night?
