We fiiiiiinally made it to Butterfly World!
It rained on the way there and I almost gave up, but upon our arrival it cleared.
I completely failed at getting a good picture (they didn’t want to stop exploring to smile!). But it was very beautiful there. It is also big enough that you do not need to get close to many other humans, and most of the exhibits are outdoors. SO: pandemic-friendly.
Viva may have been pooped on by a bird. But all in all, it was a lovely way to spend a morning. The rest of the day was less exciting. I took many of your advice and took a couch nap while she watched a few shows in the afternoon (Pinkalicious x 3, I think). I already miss her nap so much.
Oh well. Bedtime went fine but Josh sat in there again. I know from experience this is probably setting a bad precedent. Annabel required someone in her room to fall asleep every night until she was . . . 6ish. But we lived to tell the tale.
(Also: at some point, A&G will start sharing a room instead of A&C. Maybe that will negate the need for a parent? One can only hope.)
I know from experience that every phase feels infinite while you’re in it. But I also know from experience that . . . it’s not. Will try to enjoy the good parts and just not get too ahead of myself.
(I miss Lagliv‘s so much! Seriously got so many ideas from her.)
M – salmon miso rice bowls from Dinner Illustrated
T – broccoli chèvre soup from Run Fast Eat Slow, baguette slices
W – leftovers from M and/or T (Monday’s salmon will be gone but bowls can be recreated with over easy eggs = delicious)
R – pasta skillet with chicken sausage, cheese & spinach + broccoli
F – leftovers +/- frozen chicken nuggets for kids if Thursday was not a hit with them
S – takeout night as per ushe (probably sushi)
S – cook something from Milk Street Mag probably
. . . for your suggestions from yesterday’s post! I unfortunately will not be able to record or share this session. BUT, I could certainly do a live (and/or recorded) replay for all of you if there is interest. Will report back after Tuesday once I see how it goes.
