Kale is currently....
Feeling a little bit off this week. His teacher's say he's been "sensitive" or "a bit emotional." This is very sweet, but I know what they're trying to tell me is "your kid is all sorts of cray cray." Kale is a little man of routine and tiny changes can result in him being, uh, sensitive. This week we haven't been able to walk to school together because it's been raining and I have a feeling that without that walk, he doesn't have enough time to process the transition from home to school, and that just sort of throws the entire day off.
Drinking water, water, and more water. We rarely have juice or milk in the house and so he just doesn't even think to ask for it.
Looking for balls and colours that match. These are two of Kale's obsessions this week. He's really into playing catch - probably because he just figured out how to catch a ball. So as soon as we get home, he's looking for a ball. So much for my "no balls in the house" rule. He's also really into finding things that are the same colour. Like, he'll have a green car and then look for all the other things he can find that are green. It's pretty amazing to think that six months ago I was convinced he was colour blind.
Dreaming of who knows what. This kid talks gibberish all night long, but I can rarely figure out what he's saying.
Making his mama and papa proud! Tonight Kale insisted that he wanted to put his pj's on by himself. I braced myself for a meltdown, that I figured would occur when he couldn't figure out how to get his head out of his arm hole. However, to the total and utter shock of Kris and I, Kale totally dressed himself!!! Shirt and pants! We had noooo idea he could do this! High fives all around!!!
I am currently.....
Feeling pretty terrible. I've been fighting a cold for weeks now and just as I was starting to feel better, I came down with a terrible sinus headache today. I'm hoping that it doesn't turn into anything major since I'll be spending the next two days at a conference and I don't want to be the broad that passes out snoring while the keynote speaker pauses to take a sip of water.
Drinking coffee, mocha lattes, espresso.... it's a crazy week at work and I've been running on a steady stream of caffeine.
Looking for all my winter clothes. Why does it seem that at the start of every new season, I have no clothes and find myself wondering "what the *(^*%(#$ did I wear last year????" Also, I am soooo not ready for parka's and toques. But since my body only runs at a normal temperature when I'm pregnant (the only good thing about being pregnant for me was the fact that I was actually WARM for nine months), I'm usually the first to roll out the winter gear.
Dreaming of work. Isn't that the WORST? I actually wake up several times a night and yell at myself (silently, in my head) "STOP DREAMING ABOUT WORK. I NEED A BREAK!!!"
Making it through the week. Basically that's my goal this week. Two more days until the weekend, two more days until the weekend, two more days until the weekend......
NEXT WEEKS THEMES: worrying, listening, wishing, observing, considering
