Five Fact Friday – Wins and losses, IKEA and penguins, and why I’ve been living in my closet and pantry this week. If that’s not a big week, I don’t know what is.
I don’t have the heart to explain to them A) my plant killing tendencies, B) that we don’t have great dirt for growing in our completely barren backyard and C) it’s roughly 12 billion degrees outside and not quite prime Arizona planting season.
(Side note: someone teach me your ways. I really do want to learn!)
I maybe spent a lot of time in my closet this week. And also the pantry.
Good heavens. We are not winning at a lot of things, but that? That was a really great moment.
This week, their big request was to go play in Smaaland at IKEA. (HA!) Sophie primarily wants to be able to bring home a bag of their (gluten free!) chicken meatballs, and Milo wants to go play in the ball pit. I’m also salivating over the idea of one hour all to myself!
The weekly newsletter is headed out tonight around 6pm PST! I’ve got some fun weekly faves, and some tips for summer snacking (anyone else’s kids ravenous all summer!?). You can sign up here if you don’t want to miss it!
