Making My Monday
This weekend was bittersweet. Little D finally got over her nasty stomach virus, but is not sleeping well at night (an issue she has had on and off since toddlerhood) so it means one emotional little five-year-old and one exhausted mama. She’s back to school today after a week away so I am hoping the routine and stimulation there will put her back on track in the coming days. Here are a few things Making My (yawn) Monday this week:
Kai in the photo above checking out a local skateboard art exhibit with his nanny. I love that we live in a place where this is the type of initiative supported by the community, it’s so us. Showing up five minutes before they closed on Saturday to take a closer look is also so us, so we’re going to head over again at some point this week to really explore and let Little D check it out.
We’re having our windows cleaned tomorrow. Ha, the suburban definition of happiness, right? But I am telling you, if you have never done it, it is SO worth it. It’s like all of a sudden you are watching the world go by in high definition. We only do it twice per year and it’s a great investment.
Just found out a friend of mine (one of my first when I moved to LA) has moved only about an hour away from us AND is expecting a baby in six weeks (clearly it had been a while since we talked). Kai and I are planning on paying her a visit on Friday and I can’t wait to catch up in-person.
We are doing our holiday family photos with the fab Fawn Christiansen this weekend. I am at this phase where I want to freeze time with my kids (ok, maybe not the sleeping issues part of it…) because they are so amazing and cute and creative and inspiring these days. And Fawn’s photos always seem to capture all of that and let me hold onto it. Oh, and maybe she and I will sneak in a cocktail afterwards… 😉
I got back to The Dailey Method on Saturday and am planning on going again today. I can’t tell you guys how good it felt after almost three weeks away to work out my body and my mind. I literally almost came to tears during the final stretch/cooldown during class because I realized how long it had been since I had given myself an hour to just take care of myself. Ok, the tears also may have come because Coldplay’s “The Scientist” was playing and who doesn’t get a little misty-eyed at that song? Oh and maybe also because I could hardly feel my thighs. But whatever, it’s good to be back!
Happy Monday ~
