One of my very favorite things to do in this world is to have “coffee talk.” You know, where you curl up with a cup of coffee in your living room or in a coffee shop, and talk to someone you enjoy spending time with. Nothing refreshes my soul more than good conversation and a good cup of coffee.
So if we were going to have coffee this morning, here is what I would share with you. First of all, THREE finally has a name! Husband and I argued and discussed and debated, and finally we have settled on a name we both feel good about for our third child: Penelope Rose. I’ve been calling her Pepper, but if we meet her and she doesn’t seem … Pepperish … we can always call her Poppy or just plain Penelope. But never, ever Penny.
I’d also tell you that yesterday I was in Target with TWO picking up his prescription and I pulled a ninja mom move in the bathroom, which involved locking his shoulder in between my knees while I washed my hands so he wouldn‘t run into one of the stalls and play in the toilet water. He’s got a fascination with toilets … which is kind of a pain in my ass.
|TWO has an ear infection and a sinus infection. Boo.|
This week I came across some parenting advice that I absolutely LOVE and plan to follow with my own children. I’m forever finding things on the internet that I love, but this really resonated with me.
I’d also tell you that I have had a really rough week and it literally feels like everyone in my life is trying their hardest to give me a hard time. YOU WIN, PEOPLE. YOU HAVE ALL SUCCESSFULLY GIVEN ME AN ADEQUATE AMOUNT OF GRIEF.
But … since we had this nice, calm, imaginary coffee talk, I really feel a lot better. The only thing that could have made it better would be a shot of whiskey. Cheers!
