Another Friday, another link up with Kelly at This Ain't the Lyceum!
John had his first ever dental cleaning this week!
He was super pumped until he had to actually get in the dentist's chair - then he had a minor breakdown. Held a toothbrush, and everything was better!
Once they got going, he was way more amenable to all of the cleaning than I thought he would be. Even the suction, polishing, and spraying.
Also, he really liked the Sports Illustrated in the waiting room.
That's all Matt there.
John was a sick chicken on Ash Wednesday.
Thankfully (and knocking on all the wood) Therese seems to have dodged the bullet on this one.
I kept both kids home from Ash Wednesday mass. Especially because I really wasn't sure what kind of sick this was going to be. Matt and I switched off masses instead.
I did miss getting to have a kids with ashes picture to use with an #ashtag.
This kid is amazing me with the leaps and bounds of growing up she is doing.
For some reason, being able to put duplo together caused a bigger emotional reaction than starting to crawl for me.
Stop growing up so fast baby!
Super Bowl was a fun event!
|Just part of the food enjoyed.|
John had been talking about "Super Ball" for weeks. Even telling his stuff animals, "Today is not Super Ball. We have to wait. Maybe Tuesday."
After all the weeks of talking about it, John spent most of the game playing with the little girl from next door.
Priorities. We got 'em.
As in last week's 7QT we did most of our Fat Tuesday celebrating on Saturday in combination with donut party.
I will only make King's Cake once a year. Those puppies are all of the work of a bread, a cake, and a pastry combined.
Instead we had a fajita feast, and drank up all the wine, and ate up all the leftover cupcakes and King's Cake.
Those last two were really just me.
Can't go wasting wine and cake before Lent, can we?
So far giving up extra tech during naptimes has been interesting.
I've realized that I need to be able to use it a bit in order to access my dance workouts.
So I've narrowed it by not allowing any tech that is just ambling around or because I want background noise.
So far: I've done our taxes (filed and accepted!), lots of dance, planned more travel, read books, and prayed more.
I'm participating in a photo project! And you can too!
Abbey, at Surviving Our Blessings, made this fun Lenten photo challenge to see the sacred in the everyday.
Here are the first week's prompts.
You can participate on Instagram with #holylens or via facebook by posting with the hashtag on your page or on the project's community page.
Blessed Is She people can also use #projectblessed.
Hope your Lent is off to a prayerful start!
