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 was weird. We had some amazing things going on and also a few less than boisterous bumps in the road. Hence, today’s title. Let me just say parenting a tiny human is one of the most rewarding experiences, but damned if it isn’t a holy crapton of work, with some days being far more challenging than others.
Case in point: Ave bit me. In anger. It took every ounce of my will power to not lose my shit and remember she’s only two years old. Hashtag real life parenting.
The tiny dictator is working on her last molar and this final tooth is proving to be a real bastard, and a biter apparently. Please send wine, lots and lots of wine. Also maybe a rabies vaccination.
My in-laws were on vacation, and while this was certainly a high for them, Ave and I missed them a lot. Not only are they the kindest and most amazing people, but they also watch Ave every Monday and Thursday so I can be productive or lay horizontal on the couch if need be. This would have been a horizontal week had they been home.
Needless to say, we were both super excited to pick them up from the airport yesterday.
Thankfully, my mother came to stay with us for a few days, which was a huge help. When they say it takes a village to raise a tiny human, they mean it.
On Saturday, we absconded from the tiny human (i.e. she hung out with the Hubby), and hit up the annual Cleveland garlic festival. We came, we saw, and we left very, very stinky. I have no regrets.
We also visited Prayers for Maria (the sunflower fields), this time with the tiny human in tow. Much like the entire week, her reaction was a mixed bag. One minute, Ave loved it, and the next, she was clinging to my torso like the hounds of hell were after her.
The highlight of the week though was announcing my granola is officially for sale at The West Side Market, stand 75 for Maple Valley Sugarbush. To say I’m excited would be an understatement. This is a dream come true, one I didn’t even know I had. Now please do me a huge favor and go buy some, and by some, I mean lots. Momma’s got rabies vaccinations to pay for.
