Get you 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 visited the local library for “Baby and Me” story time. It’s the first class we’ve been to in months, and Ave ran to the reading room quicker than a zombie to brains.
We also ran a bunch of errands like grocery shopping and trips to Breadsmith for free samples, er…I mean loaves of bread and balls of pizza dough.
I signed the tiny dictator up for swimming lessons at our gym, and her first class was last week. She was beyond excited. Her and the Hubby blew bubbles, sang silly songs, kicked their legs, and floated on their backs, while I swam laps a few lanes over. She’s been asking for ‘more pool’ ever since.
Ave went to music class another day, while I got my teeth cleaned and chastised for my lack of flossing. Truth be told, I confessed to my nefarious ways the moment I walked in, so they went easy on me. I puffy heart my dentist.
Ave and I had multiple play dates last week. We met some friends at an open gym session, where Ave got to do one of her favorite things: shoot hoops. Unfortunately, she was enamored with all the balls and didn’t want any other kids to touch them. Oi.
We hung out with Ave’s bestie another night, one of the few people she will willingly share her toys with, and only sometimes. We’re a work in progress over here; single baby syndrome for sure.
When we weren’t partying like rock stars, we hibernated by the fireplace. Based on her desire to have a fire always and add “more wood” constantly, I’m convinced she’s a pyromaniac. I’m gonna have to keep a close eye on this one. We already knew that though.
For my part, I did a variety of work outs last week, including some sweat sessions on the elliptical in our basement, swimming and weight lifting while binge watching season two of Stranger Things. I’d describe the latter as a little bit Stand By Me with a side of Stephen King’s It and Fire Starter, all to the Pretty In Pink soundtrack. Needless to say, I’m a fan.
As far as cooking goes, I made a batch of sweet and salty trail mix granola. It was as good as I remember, maybe even better. I substituted leftover smashed up crackers for the seeds, and it worked wonderfully. I like any recipe you can tinker and tool with for the better.
I wrote a post about surviving the eighteen month sleep regression, where I referenced the male anatomy three times in the first few sentences. What can I say? It’s a gift.
I also did some recipe testing (stay tuned) and picture taking, in the snow because I’m hardcore or perhaps just foolish.
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.
