What happened this month:
-Simon and his band left for tour and it has been Theo and I holding down the fort. We're one week in with one and a bit still to go. So far, so good. The total number of meltdowns (from me not Theo) can be counted on one hand so I definitely think that's saying something.
-I hit the mother load at the thrift stores, purple lee jeans, crocs for Theo, more summer clothes for the mama
- Our co-op daycare is restructuring and restructuring some more. Our current location is just not cutting it for us so we're on the hunt for a new and better location....
-I've found my cooking groove again
and have been making some tasty things including these carrot muffins and these vegan friendly peanut noodles.
-had an amazing girls weekend with my three favourite ladies....think girly movies, junk food, indian food, celebrity magazines, yearbooks and no shortage of gossip
-Theo and I planted our balcony garden...including our bean plant from Nate, all the herbs one can ever need, zebra tomato plants, salad greens, yellow and green beans and of course a couple beautiful orange and yellow marigolds which Theo promptly pulled the flowers off.
-We ate our weight in asparagus
-I found a new blog to love...you should definitely check it out cause then you'll be as hooked as me
-Theos hair is growing and growing! It's soft and fluffy and sun bleached..oh how that child is adorable.
-My first full day in the daycare as the duty parent...it was a really unique experience because I got to watch Theo interact with other kids and basically how a day in a daycare unfolds, which trust me, is completely and utterly exhausting.
What I'm looking forward to in June:
-Strawberries and of course more asparagus
-Simon returning home to us
-Finishing up the end of my work contract
-Swimming in a lake
-Planning our summer including a couple camping trips, summer musical festivals and day trips
-watching our garden grow
-Splash pads in the park
-a trip to the Toronto Islands
- a date night with Sime. We're determined to get out there and try a new restaurant.
-my sister coming for a second girls night!
