I read this post a few nights ago and promised myself I would try a similar one. I really need a bit of levity today. It's dim outside. The baby has been up even more throughout the night than usual and we've been snowed in for going on a week.
Here are the yays and boos of my last week:
Yay: I've finally started to feel a bit of the holiday spirit.
Boo: Much to Shaune's silent horror, I've been turning just about everything into a Christmas craft. Did I mention that I'm not artsy in that way at all?
Yay: Deaglan is doing great with the potty training and is in underwear most of the time meaning we're saving on diapers.
Boo: Either I need to improve my butt wiping skills or invest in some darker coloured Fruit of the Loom briefs.
Yay: Naveen is thriving, he's healthy, hitting all the milestones and recently started eating cereal and some baby food.
Boo: This healthy little nightowl is now teething, so is awake even more throughout the night and to top it off, his poop smells like he's been eating hotdogs and skunk pie.
Yay: I bought an awesome advent calendar from Costco a few years ago and this is the first year Deaglan is really into it. We filled it with hershey kisses.
Boo: I've already had re-stock the hershey kisses once and it's only the 10th of December. Sadly Deaglan had nothing to do with the disappearing kisses.
Boo: I'm eating cookies for breakfast lunch and dinner and am possibly suffering some sort of sugar-induced rut.
Yay: My friend asked me to be a bridesmaid in her upcoming wedding and we chose dresses a few weeks ago.
Boo: My plan to be back to my pre-pregnancy weight by May and thereby have the dress taken in isn't going so well. Cookies and kisses.
Yay: Deaglan is becoming more and more articulate.
Boo: He has stumped me several times this week when negotiating:
- a later bedtime
- why he should be able to eat dinner in front of the TV
- why he should be allowed to eat cookies for breakfast (this one didn't take too much ingenuity - he caught me red-handed)
Boo: He insists that he will have a vagina when he gets big like Mommy regardless of my numerous explanations to the contrary. (Wrong on so many levels - first of all Mommy is not big)
Yay: I'm on maternity leave which means I'm saving money on buying new work clothes for the season.
Boo: If I keep up my current diet, the only pants I'll be fitting into are Santa's and he needs them.
My wonderful real life friend Lesa's mom Sharon made the Christmas ornaments for the boys.
