I had lofty blogging goals for this week… but they quickly got pushed to the side so we could spend more time doing this.I have no regrets. Long days of sun and water and snacks and pool snuggles are better than just about everything. (Sidenote: If you live in DC, this free pool is the best with kids! Pool+library+playground = trifecta of fun.)
We are heading out of town on Monday, and while I thought I would write a quality post or two before that happened, I am reassessing my goals and striking that from the list. I’m not going to post while we are gone either, so it will be a bit quiet over here until mid July. But don’t worry- I’ll probably still clutter Instagram with more pictures of Henry and I in matching outfits in the meantime. Anyway, here are some things for your long-weekend reading pleasure:
I still find this hysterical every single year on the 4th of July, especially since we are Hamilton addicts and so I think about the Founding a lot.
It is possible that this is the best thing on parenting I have ever read. “Before you break up with your child, try new haircut, bath and clean clothes. Your love will be renewed.”
Since reading on vacation is harder with Henry, I’ve loaded up on audio books. I’m listening to Me Before You and Hillbilly Elegy, which are obviously nothing alike. And both were free, because Overdrive has changed my life.
Grandmothers are the key to breastfeeding.
I’m always craving more quiche! Even if a certain someone in our house calls it egg pie and won’t eat a bite.
Really hope this shirt goes on sale during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
Rachel Lindsay is KILLING it as Bachelorette, and I love recap podcasts, but I just can’t get into Ben and Ashley I’s podcast. Ashley I is so painfully un-self-aware and whiny that she completely taints the joy of listening to Ben. But! I love Juliet Litman’s podcast, and I was so excited when she said that she will be on a new podcast called House of Carbs. I still miss Food News, so I hope this fills the void.
Annnnddddd, if you have any great ideas for how to keep an active toddler content on an 8 hour flight, you just feel free to send them my way! Or even things to download on Netflix. We have never let him watch any TV, so I’m hoping it will be super enthralling if needed.
Happy weekend friends!
