Lean Into It

October 25, 2020

We did not go to Butterly World yesterday (it turned out A’s friend’s mother was asking about today).

We DID spent 2 hours at the playground, which was great.

And today it has been rainy (so again, no BW). Initially I was annoyed at life — I had slept in, skipped my workout, etc. But then I just told the kids today was officially Lazy Sunday, and you know what?

Embracing that has been quite lovely. We’ve played mood music (Matthew Berniger, Raye Zaragoza – the latter I discovered on All Songs Considered as usual & she’s SO GOOD) and I just spent the morning tidying up and just generally hanging out and cleaning up messes/etc without feeling like I needed to be doing really anything else. It has been nice.

Also, G seems to have aged years in the past few weeks. She figured out how to climb out of her crib (nap was a little dicey today but did end up happening) and is starting to be more independent about everything else.

Now to wake up G and snuggle with her so she doesn’t want to stay up until 10p. Need to find a good Halloween movie that all 3 will like . . . suggestions welcome!

PS: LagLiv just posted an update! Was just thinking of her!

    Halloween movie recs:

    The Nightmare Before Christmas (streaming on Disney +)

    Frankenweenie, 2012 version (ditto)

    Also, of course, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! (on Apple Plus, if you have it)

    Seconding Nightmare Before Christmas – was a hit for our family today (though I did not watch a single second of it despite being in view of the TV)

    How about Casper … its on Amazon Prime!

    I also watched the old version of Witches today. Another cute halloween-ish movie!

      Annabel is reading the book in class! Good call! (Though she says she is scared of seeing the head witch’s face!)
