Happy Friday! It’s been a full and fun week over here. The Mother’s Day Tea at Hailey’s school went above and beyond my expectations.
The kids sang songs, gave us a special gift, showed us pictures of us they had drawn, and perhaps my favorite- had the kids answer a couple of questions.
I also helped host a Spring into Health event this week with my friends Brooke and Cheryl.
Though public speaking isn’t natural for me (about 20 people in attendance makes that public speaking in my eyes!), it is always energizing to get in a room full of women that are passionate about health.
In other news, renovations are still in full swing. Sick of me talking about it yet? The tiling is done and grouting is happening today. We are doing a couple of things to our deck too, so basically it’s a revolving door of people in our house and Koda may go hoarse from the excitement. Me? I’ve jumped on the ‘if you can’t beat them, join them” bandwagon and let the girls join in on the mayhem.
Can I tell you what an incredible success the TV tokens have turned out to be? It’s eliminated the incessant asking and when they are gone, she can see and accept it. It’s lead to much more enjoyable afternoons and both girls have really big on wanting to help with cooking dinner lately. Hailey has woken up from nap asking if we can get out the ‘green ants’ immediately. It took me 5 minutes of questioning to realize she was saying INGREDIENTS.
