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.

♫ You can do it, put your list into it. ♫
Let’s get listing:
We dealt with sleep issues on and off all week.
Translation: Ave skipped nap time or drastically reduced it and spent hours awake in the middle of the night, while I fell asleep on the floor next to her crib more than once.
We baked oatmeal raisin cookies.
Translation: we made a huge mess, and Ave loved it.
We celebrated my father in laws birthday.
Translation: I got to scarf down a homemade apple pie I didn’t make. It was so tasty.
Ave went to a one year old birthday party.
Translation: she got to eat lots of mac n cheese, and mommy got to hang with one of her besties and drink wine.
The tiny dictator and I went hiking with another bestie. Say hello to Fall.
Translation: my mini-minion took a full on, fully dressed, dip in the creek, sneakers and all.
Ave hung with grandma and grandpa on Thursday while I practiced self care.
Translation: I picked up take out for lunch, watched bad television and took a nap with my cat. It was exactly what I needed.
Translation: we dealt with and are still dealing with this. Ugh.
Since I can’t end things on that note, we celebrated the tiny dictators half birthday. She’s officially 18 months old.
Translation: we broke out the baby’s bone china, one of the more unusual gifts from our baby shower. There’s a good possibility she’ll break it, but at least it’s no longer collecting dust in a closet.
Now 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.
