Get your pads and pens ready because it’s time for the Week In Review.
The Week In Review is a list, in its purest form, not of the things you still need to do, but of all the things you have done in the last seven days. It’s an achievement list, an ode to yourself, a celebration of sorts, and a virtual pat on the back or smack on the ass. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

I’m obsessed with Timehop, the app that tells you what you did on this day one year ago, two years ago, three years ago and so on. It’s even more entertaining and eye opening now that Ave is just over a year old (14 months to be exact!). There is a marked difference between my life one year ago (hello, baby pictures galore) and every other year before that (food, farmers markets, boozy cocktails, yoga and an entirely different lifestyle). As such, I’ve decided to focus today’s WIR on the things that happened last week only because I hang out all day with a tiny human.
Lets get listing.
My dad and stepmom paid us a visit in the middle of the week. It’s nice to be retired. Not only can I have family in town on a random Thursday, I always beat the crowds and run my errands on a easy breezy Tuesday or a slow and steady Friday.
I sat back and let someone else do all the work in the kitchen.
We hit up the new playground in the hood. It was a whopping success, and Ave was just as enthralled with the other kids as she was the newfangled jungle gyms, which have come a long way since the days of my youth.
I blew up a baby pool. It’s a good thing I’m full of hot air.
I played lots of vocabulary games, which entails rattling off every word you can think of that begins with the letter B or W or whatever letter floats your literary boat.
I mailed bills with the corners chewed off. Who doesn’t like a little DNA with their tax payments?
I cleaned up the puddle of pee the tiny human left on my bathroom floor. I have no photographic evidence of this incident. You’ll just have to take my word for it.
I placed an unusual order on Amazon.
I folded thousands of tiny socks, not to mention onesies and pint sized pants.
I enjoyed quiet time with the kid, watching Baby Einstein.
Last but not least, I watched this video only a thousand times.
It’s official. The tiny dictator is an independent bipedal. Yup, she’s walking. God help us.
It’s your turn. I’d love to hear from you. Link up and get yo’ list on.
What are three things you accomplished in the last week? Big or small?
