Use our themes or use your own - just let us know what is 'currently' up with you!
Be sure to stop by and say hello to the other blogger's linking up - especially my lovely co-host Lindsey from Ot & Et.
THIS WEEKS THEMES:
needing, missing, reading, hoping, playing
We are currently needing some down time as a family. The past two weekends we were away on camping trips, which both involved 3+ hour drives, long nights of fitful sleeping, and resulted in a mountain of laundry that will probably take me until October to catch up on. We were planning to head to my parents for the long-weekend, but staying home and lounging around the house seems a lot more appealing at this point.
I am currently missing having time to blog. I'm hoping that once Kale is back to school next week that I might be able to catch up on some blogging. I have lots of posts to share, but just not the time. I actually started writing this post yesterday and it's 5:30pm and I'm only on the second theme. How is that kids know to wait until you sit down to do something to ask you for a glass of water??? Is this a gift that your kids have too?
I am currently reading...
I am currently hoping that Kale's return to school next week is painless. As much as he enjoyed school last year, I think that being home with Bea and I this past month has been pretty special for him. I have a feeling that this year will be hard for him, when he knows that Bea and I are both at home. This "feeling" has been compounded by the fact that he's straight up been telling me that he doesn't want to go back to school....wish us luck!
Kale is currently playing a few (carefully selected) video games. As much as I was a fan of Super Mario when I was a kid, I feel overwhelmed with the video game world as a parent and have no idea how to navigate it all. I really have no interest in trying to screen every game for my kid, but at the same time, don't particularly want him playing games with violence (which seems to be 90% of them). This week I allowed Kale to play a Paw Patrol game online and was really surprised at how well he listened to the instructions and kept trying even when he lost (Kale is of the "If I'm not a superstar at something immediately, I hate it" camp...tell me he isn't the only 4 year old like this???).
Next weeks themes:
loving, craving, demanding, questioning, worrying
