Last night we drank caffeine teddies coffee before bed because we ran out of decaf… we thought coffee doesn’t do much for us (in the keeping us up way)… boy were we wrong!!! I struggled falling asleep. Fell asleep super super late. And then slept horribly. Lesson learned. Decaf coffee delivered today…. Also, why does…

Also, she is drinking a bit of oat milk first thing in the morning, because this was our first VERY successful day of starting to wean morning nursing!! But it was a long day, because she rises early!! I’m tired!!

This is her favourite shirt… by far!! Also her favourite, her Krismis jammies!! Her newer favourite thing to do… find everything that is too small for her and want to wear it… like this hat (or toque or whatever you would call it!!) Looks like we now also have an extra walking buddy. It has…

We recently decided that a little bit of television could be watched on Fridays and Sundays. So she was excited to watch the last bit of a Winnie-the-Pooh story, an episode of If you give a mouse a cookie, and a couple of Pinkfong Dinosaur songs!! It was a laid back day that went by…

First day that I can say Lexi kept herself busy independently for well over half an hour!! It was magic!! I put up trim, Lexi continued with her tea party, and then cleaning up for Niles (our vacuum). Which means, she picked up everything that was strewn in the kitchen and placed it on this…

Whoa last night was a doozie with our sick little girl!! She ended up in bed with me (not characteristic AT ALL!)… and I got kicked and woken up every (what felt like) half hour!! So far though, it seems like a bad cold only!! But I’m not getting too comfortable about this… yet!! Today…

Well, yesterday was good until until I received an email from Lexi’s daycare that she is a close contact of a positive covid case at school…. Sooooooo, she should’ve started at her new school today (writing this on 11 Jan)… instead we have 2 weeks of isolation!!! Let’s hope that this horribly blocked and runny…

Lexi took a mean nap today… I started cleaning the laundry room, and sat around for an hour just waiting for her to wake up!! Hahaha… could have done SO much more!! I guess, it’s just one of those things when your 1 hour napper sleeps for almost 3 hours (2h50 to be precise!)!! Whaaaaat??…

8 January 2021

A pretty typical day over here… except that hubby left for Grand Forks for work!! Solo parenting is tough!! Anyway, checked out Lexi’s new school… same school different/new location! Awesome!! We had some smoothies, took the dogs for a walk… and now relaxing with a coffee on the couch!!

Dropped Lexi of at daycare and then headed to Ikea to finalize a kitchen for another property. Spent waaaaaay too much time there (stock super limited!!)… walked away with 85% of the kitchen, but that is okay for now, I mean, what can you do?? Ended up not getting to a lot today, but that…
