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. ♫
Last week the tiny dictator and I were busy little bees, butterflies or any other bubbly B word you can think of because B’s are our jam right now. Seriously, Ave can say bubbles, bzzzz, boom, ball, balloon, baby, boat, boots, and the list goes on and on. I wasn’t kidding about those B sounds.
Without further ado, let’s get listing:
On Monday, Ave had her eighteen month check up where she weighed in at 22 pounds, a handful of inches and a fancy percentile. I’m pretty sure I only remembered her weight because I want to know how much I lift every day.
Since the morning involved shots, we spent the afternoon hanging at the library with another little buddy, and afterwards, Ave and I had a dinner date out: pesto grilled cheese. We fancy like that.
Tuesday morning we tried out a new play group called Toddler Tuesday and it was a hit, maybe because they passed out snacks at the end. Whatever the case may be, Ave detached from my thigh within minutes and was happily playing. We have a winner.
Wednesday found us at a new coffee shop called Play Grounds. One part caffeinated beverages and one part play area for children make it a perfect spot for parents to recharge while their tiny humans run out their energy. We also hit up the park in the afternoon because we can’t resist the slide.
After going to story time on Thursday morning, I dropped the wee one off at grandma and grandpa’s house before meeting some old colleagues for lunch. I ate a salad, followed by an entire order of onion rings. I spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning up around the house while watching episodes of Downton Abbey before Ave got home.
On Friday, Ave and I drove to Buffalo. Well technically I drove while she slept in the back or watched Elmo. God bless Sesame Street. We visited with family, including the infamous Uncle Corey who traveled with us to San Diego last month.
Saturday we spent the day at a funeral and the reception afterwards before meeting up with mom for Pakistani food. Ave was a huge fan of the goat. Her palate is broader than mine.
On Sunday, we visited with old friends at the Science Museum in the morning, and then spent the afternoon and evening with Ave’s cousins and had one epic bath. Oh and cheese; can’t forget the cheese.
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.
