Happy Sunday everyone! What a blur the last two weeks have been! I so missed doing this post last week. And it’s crazy I completely forgot it. I was so engrossed in my National Read-A-Thon book that I lost track of time and didn’t realize that I didn’t post, let alone write last week’s Sunday Post. So I am sorry for that 😳

The last two weeks have been crazy busy, but also relaxed. Is that even possible?! I’m proud to say, for those of you that have kept up with this battle 😉 , that Liam has had not one single accident in over a week!! I think we are officially, fully potty trained.

I’m so relieved that the stress of that is OVER!!! And just in time for his birthday too. My sweet baby will be four in a few weeks. I’m not sure how the time has gone so fast, but it has. I have to tell a funny story on him from this week. I had an epic mommy fail on Friday. Almost everyday like clockwork my son asks for a peanut butter sandwich. Well I opened the BRAND new jar of peanut butter and thought “Huh, that looks funny.” I scraped it out with a knife and started to spread it and whoops! It was lumpy. I bought the crunchy instead of smooth. I tried to explain this to my son, but have you ever tried to rationalize with a four year old?! Well I gave him the sandwich knowing full well he wouldn’t eat it. He does his normal thing, eats all the crust first (I know, I have a strange kid 😀 ) then he takes a big bite from the center.

I’m proud of him, he at least finished the bite rather than spitting it out. But he promptly looked at me after swallowing and said “Mama, this is not my peanut butter.” 😆 That’s my boy!!

How was your week?

What are you reading this week?

I still can’t believe that January is over and we have started February. How is that possible?! Time moves way too fast these days! This is the last week of the COYER Scavenger Hunt and I plan to meet my goal of six books…I’m already half way…I can do this! Besides reading I’ll be crafting away this week getting ready for Liam’s birthday. I’m so excited for it. We didn’t have a party for him last year and I want to make it up this year, so I’m going all out. I’ll share pics in a couple weeks 😀 What are your plans this week? Any books worth reading?

  1. Great books this week! The Sara Gruen, Landline and Crimson Beauty are all on my wishlist. Congrats on being fully potty trained!! That’s so exciting when you get there! The peanut butter story made me laugh. I’m impressed he didn’t spit it out. I’m not entirely sure my little one would’ve swallowed it. Have a great week!

    • He impressed me too! I was sure he spit it out! FYI the Sara Gruen is on Netgalley and Crimson Bound is on Edelweiss if you use either of those for ARCs. Have a great week 😀

    • Thank you! I’ve been wanting to read it forever and came across it at our local used books store. Can’t wait to start it. Have a great week!
