That time of year when we have every single coat that we own out, because you need a heavy one in the morning, and either the medium or light one depending on the day.
1. Our first proud moment of the week: Bria eats her first bowl of ramen.
2. When the girls brush their teeth in the morning we are all crammed in the bathroom together. I still brush Joya's teeth for her, and then she spits into the toilet. After watching this routine for weeks, Bria has figured out what you should do when the toilet lid is up: spit. So Joya bends over to spit and so does Bria. Watching a 19 month old spit into a toilet is pretty darn cute.
3. It's been awhile, but this week I got to participate in the Most Treasured Parenting Moment of cleaning barf out of a crib in the middle of the night. As far as I know, Bria hasn't even had a fever in her 19 months of life, but in the wee hours of Wednesday morning I heard her barfing in her crib. I got her cleaned up and the bed cleaned up, and tried not to wish horrible things on some of the moms in my MOPS group who were all talking about how their kids have never barfed in bed. How lucky for them. My girls are bed barfers. It's something I've had to accept.
4. Joya has made it a full week without sneaking any food or candy. She proudly tells me each morning that she did not sneak anything. Today she can finally have dessert again.
Have a glorious weekend!
