Mark sure knew what he was doing…

Well, I’m sick again. This time, it’s a minicold, which is far better than the mongocold from which the whole family recovered before our trip to California. And fortunately, I seem to be the only one affected this time around. Symptoms: dry, scratchy (not sore) throat; coughing; chest congestion; slightly runny nose. Moving on…

Hula Girl and I had a good day yesterday. We danced to music most of the morning. Kid songs really put a spring in your step. They also put a bounce in Hula Girl’s bottom. Too cute. After dancing some time away, we went for a quick walk and then I put her down for her nap. She slept two hours, during which time I watched Pride and Prejudice– the Keira Knightley version. Wonderful way to rest my ill body. When she woke up again, she nursed, had independent playtime, then lunch, and then we went to the park. It was a beautiful day! It was the first time I have ever put sunscreen on her. I was terrified that her skin might break out in an eczema flare-up. But… it didn’t! I used the sunscreen made by California Baby. It’s supposed to be one of the mildest yet most effective on the market. It sure is expensive. After that outing, she slept two and a half hours. I finally woke her at 4:40, 40 minutes later than her normal nursing time. I was shocked that she slept that long. We went to the library in the early evening so we have some new reading material around the house. Momma’s getting tired of the board books we own. She was in a great mood all afternoon, and had no problems making it to bedtime at 8:00. Point for Momma!

I love facebook. Seriously. I love that two of my friends, whose blogs I follow, posted new blogs yesterday and I knew to check because of facebook. I also know that 10 people checked MY blog due to a facebook link. What a great networking machine! I also love it for the people aspect- I have been able to stay in touch with some of my treasured students and their families, as well as my own family members and multiple friends from all stages of life. I love getting friend requests from people I knew way back when… It makes a stay-at-home-mom feel not-s0-stuck-at-home sometimes. Ya know?

This weekend we’ll be heading to my parents’ house to celebrate Mother’s Day. I am SO EXCITED because it’s my first one! Last year, Hula Girl decided to wait a few more weeks. So Jonathan got Father’s Day, but I totally missed out. I sure hope Hula Girl got me something special! (Just kidding. But I really do look forward to handmade gifts from her in the future!) Jonathan, if you are reading this, you know that we talked about some stuff for the kitchen, and I’ve always liked diamonds…
