Well here goes another things I've learned post! This week went by fast and reflecting on all the things this week has made me grateful for the weekends.
Things I've learned this week are:
-Jack still won't let me cook uninterrupted.
-My cooking skills are improving daily. (Thank you mommy for being an amazing cook)
-My husband's teammates love my cookies just as much as he does!
-Disney movies are thee best especially Beauty and the Beast.
-Jack has an evil laugh when he knows he's touching something he's not supposed to be touching.
-Even though we have our new baby Kendric, Jack is still a baby too and I need to remember that. (still kinda crazy that these two are only one year and 20 days apart.)
-I don't like to be rushed. It throws me off and puts me in a bad mood.
-Not having a car can be an inconvenience on so many levels!!
-My sanity will be restored by tomorrow. (We're purchasing a used car that should get us from point A to point B and the boys and I will be able to get out of our apartment)
-I read somewhere that babies start cooing and making noises by their 2nd and 3rd months of life. Aha! that is so false because my baby started cooing when we moved to North Carolina. He was the ripe age of 2 weeks old.
-Kendric likes to stare at me and makes the craziest sounds. He also snores pretty loud for a 6 week old baby.
-Jack still loves to play rough with me. I don't know what it is but he likes it and thinks it's funny. Oh well, boys will be boys and I'm fine with wrestling the little monkey!!
-Jack loves pulling my hair so I am DEFINITELY going to cut my hair soon. Just trying to find a cute short hair do before I muster up the courage to do it. I love my hair long but it's just hair and it'll grow back.
-Don't sweat the small stuff. Sometimes I forget to just let things go. Kids will be kids. If I don't get to another load of laundry or do the dishes before bed, it's not the end of the world. It's a good thing I have my Zeeky to keep me together. He lightens my load by helping me clean or taking Jack for walks so I can get all the cleaning I wasn't able to do with him attached to my hip. Zeeky's so easy going and it helps me loosen up and not be so uptight. Boy was I blessed!! (I'm sure you know what I mean with your own spouse for those that have one and if you don't yet, never settle for nothing but the best!!)
-Watching Teen Mom's Farrah and the way she treats her mom makes me never want to be rude to my mom again. As much as I hate to admit it, I've spoken to my mom like that and it's a harsh reality for me to see it. I don't like it and it's so disrespectful. I was so hard headed when I was younger and makes me thankful my mom never gave up on me or beat me to death because if I was her, I would have!! (I love you mom and know you've been through a lot. As an adolescent I thought I knew everything like most teenagers do but thank you for sticking it out and for loving me unconditionally. You are amazing!!)
I like doing a weekly post such as this one. It makes me more aware of the things I do during the week. When I know I've just come to a realization or learned that I liked something I think in my head that I need to jot that down on my "learned" list. I am constantly learning new things or even just refreshing my memory. What I love, the things I don't like and everything in between. It makes me grateful for what I have and makes me wish I didn't take things for granted such as a car!! I hope you can reflect on the many things you learn throughout your week, months or even years. Hope you have a great weekend!!
