Great day today! I noticed on my weather app that it’ll be raining tomorrow and Saturday. So instead of completing all my tasks on my to do list, aka house cleaning, I decided to take the kids out , get some fresh air before being rained in all weekend. We can complete our home school and other fun activities on the to do list during the rainy days. Side note, we DO love the rain. We don’t have the biggest backyard and we’ll be lucky enough to hear peace and quiet in the bustling city living. That’ll work out so, Out we go!
We went to Walmart and Sam’s Club to grab a few items for their home schooling and a few groceries enough to last us through the weekend. Ooooh! And another addition to our growing garden! I’ll try to remember to show you in my next post! Peppermint 🤗 Super excited. We saw Sweet Basil, but the ones on the shelf looked torn apart. 😩😳😣 Hoping to find some fine sweet basil. 🌱
We then headed to the library and playground, but didn’t stay too long at the playground. It was too hot. Too hot that my kids were sweating and turning red…
I did find a parenting book that I was going to purchase but found in the library! It’s called How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen so Kids Will Talk by Adele Faber & Elaine Mazlish. I’ve already began reading the first pages and it’s that great of a book, thus far , I’ll probably end up purchasing one. I’m eager to do a review on our other blog, which is a parenting & home schooling blog called Pass The Moon, sharing our experiences and reviews.
We arrived home just in time before the traffic hit and just in time to get some good cooking dinner done by the time the hubby came home. Beef Steak Stew with Power Pressure Cooker (carrots, celery, mushrooms – Next post will be the recipe!) and Spanish rice , topped with corn or you can add corn with the stew, taste as good!
The kids were great today. WE were great. I made sure to be present, focus on my breath, enjoyed my time with them, listened, be compassionate, plus, mommy got her yoga in. Ain’t nothing like that feeling when you get a practice in. Life is good.
And I knew it! We should’ve gotten her a REAL bunk bed! As soon as she saw one at IKEA display, she fell in love with the bunk bed. Unfortunately, we’ve already purchased her a twin size bed, an upgrade from toddler to kid status. The next upgrade kiddo, if you’re still into bunk beds.
