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.

Let’s get listing:
Last week kicked my non-ass ass, or maybe I should come right out and say the tiny dictator whupped my baseless backside. Sometimes parenting is sunshine, laughter and bubbles, and other times, it’s exhausting, relentless and the pit of hell (I’m talking to you diaper genie; dear god, the stench), usually all in the same day.
In any event, we attempted, unsuccessfully, to transition Ave to one nap a day. The short version is none of us got the sleep we needed, which translates to one cranky baby, tons of comfort nursing and a hangry momma. Did you know my child doesn’t take a bottle at all? Yep, she’s boob or bust, which left me drained, quite literally.
As a result, the vast majority of my days involved chasing after the wee babe and drinking copious amounts of coffee. I’m fairly certain we read every book in her room at least a hundred times, with an even heavier emphasis on Row, Row Your Boat. It’s a crowd favorite.
Outside of that, we did a few things other things.
The whole family went to the barbershop and got their hair cut, well except Ave who has almost no hair.
We also had a family adventure to the neighborhood swimming hole mainly because Ave requested it daily. “Pool? Pool? Pool? Pool. Pool. Pool,” she says nonstop.
We also spent an afternoon playing in the sprinkler or really the puddles surrounding the sprinkle. Details, details.
With my fancy new spiralizer, I made all the Kohlroodles and even some zoodles. It’s official, I’m smitten.
I penned a recipe post for this simple and sassy white bean tomato basil salad with a side of serial killer. You’d have to read it to understand.
Last but not least, the Hubby, la petit bebe and I met up with some family for Sunday brunch at The Market. It was finger licking good.
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.
