Over the Threshold sent me an oh-so-sweet email telling me about this post entitled 10 Books You Must Read to Your Daughter (Or How to Keep Your Daughter From Ending Up Like That Horrid Girl in Twilight). Great post! Great blog! But even more exciting... in the comments someone linked to this Pride and Prejudice Counting Primer. And that's not even the most exciting part; this is only one of a whole series of BabyLit board books inspired by the classics! So cool!
David got a job! This is big news and probably should come before cute board books, but hey, I don't feel like reordering it now. Before you start getting excited, let me tell you it's not a job in his field, it's at a coffee shop. But it's a job and it has benefits. We're really happy.
We are on the search for childcare for Lucia. Our first choice is to have her with a stay-at-home mom that wants to watch only one or two kids in addition to her own. We've found several in the area and are planning to meet with one this weekend. Since David's job schedule might be different each week, and we are hoping he'll be able to be off at least one of the days I work, we would only need someone to watch her a few days a week and those days might change weekly. That makes it a little harder since many moms looking to babysit are hoping for regular hours. Will you say a prayer for us that we find the right fit for our family?
Do you hate to throw out jars? It drives David and my parents crazy but I never throw (glass) bottles or jars out. They are just so useful and there have been a few time that I've really needed a few for a craft I wanted to do but didn't have any. So I've started a Pinterest board for jar crafts. David's been drinking those Starbucks drinks in the glass bottles and I can't wait to turn them into some of these great ideas!
Do you attend church on Sundays? Do you wear clothes to said church service? My friend, Kendra, is starting a new Sunday linkup on her new blog project, Fine Linen and Purple. It's called What I Wore Sunday and it's a chance to show off your church attire. If you don't have a blog to link up, definitely still check it out for some Sunday fashion inspiration!
I wrote a post earlier this week on what it's like to have a "mommy body". I was really nervous about writing it because I don't particularly like to talk about my insecurities, but I've gotten a ton of positive feedback and if it positively impacts just one woman, I'm glad I wrote it.
It's been quite a week:
Corn maze/pumpkin patch/petting zoo tomorrow!
