THIS WEEKS THEMSE:
worrying, listening, wishing, observing, considering
Kale is currently.....
Worrying about Papa doing things when he wants Mama to do them. Por ejemplo: We'll pull the car into the driveway and, regardless of whether or not Kris actually makes any kind of move to take him out of his carseat, Kale will start yelling "No! Mama take me out of my carseat!" This one is a mama's boy, that's for certain.
Listening to Wheels on the Bus. This is his absolute favourite song and he is constantly singing it and watching a video we have loaded on the iPad. I love that he can sing full songs now - it's really, really cute to catch him singing a tune to himself.
Wishing he could breath through his nose! Poor guy is so stuffed up and still has a bad cough at night. He was sick at school yesterday and so he stayed home with his Nana today and we're crossing our fingers that he wakes up feeling better tomorrow.
Observing other kids. Kale is usually a bit shy when we get around a bunch of other kids and it can take him awhile to warm up and jump in on the action. This past weekend we took him to a little concert of a local (kids) band. The room was pretty packed with lots of little people and Kale spent 99.9% of the time watching what all the other kids were doing, rather than watching the band.
I am currently.....
Worrying about the impact that my work life is having on my ability to be the parent that I want to be. I know - heavy, right? Heavy and worthy of its own post....or to be left as a draft.
Listening to ..... nothing. I know, you thought I was going to say the CBC. Unfortunately Kale has come to scream "No, I don't want to listen to the CBC" when we're in the car. If I didn't remember him slipping gracefully from my vagina, I would swear we're not related.
Wishing that I could get one good nights sleep in. I am running on empty these days and even a large mocha latte at 3pm isn't helping me get through the afternoon. By the time I walk in the door after work I am a complete ZOMBIE. Kale's sniffling and coughing is keeping me up much of the night, along with some work-related stress that has me waking at 4am to put together a mental to-do list. You would not believe how much I am looking forward to having two weeks off at Christmas. Someone sign me up for a trip to Cuba. Mama needs it.
Observing how many empty mini-Toblerone wrappers there are on my desk beside me. Hands down favourite Halloween snack. Or wait, is it reese's peanut butter cups?? Hmm.... tough call. What's your favourite??
Considering watching Parenthood and going to bed by 9pm. This would be my ideal night. Something tells me I'm going to eat the rest of the bag of mini-Toblerone bars and read a 180 page report so I can synthesize it into a briefing note by 9am tomorrow.
