I took the girls to the grocery store the other morning, at one point Eloise was squealing, backwards-facing doing the splits in the top part of the cart (all somehow while buckled in), while Harper was riding in the back tossing things out every once in a while & trying to open snacks while we shopped. A sweet woman approached me to tell me that her daughters were just this age not too long ago, and then she blinked & they’re both in college. And that she would give anything to have them both back in her shopping cart. I thought it was the sweetest sentiment, especially considering I thought she was coming to tell me how unsafe it was that my ten month old was doing gymnastics in our shopping cart. A little encouragement like that goes a long way!
Brandon comes home today from a seven day trip to Hawaii for work, so I basically woke up feeling like it was Christmas. This is his last work trip for a while, his schedule has been insane lately, and being pregnant + two energetic kids + nonstop yucky weather has me feeling majorly worn out. The girls & I hit up a new brunch spot (Bantam + Biddy) with my brother this morning, sunshine & good breakfast food always cures a case of the blues. Eloise is at that age right now where she hates being constrained in any way, carseats, strollers, high chairs are all completely unacceptable forms of torture. She wants to be crawling on the ground, eating things off the floor as she goes. But, she took her first step this week!!!!!! So it is only just a matter of time before we can really take advantage of parks & other kid friendly places where she will be able to keep up with big sis!
Chipped nail polish & French toast for life.
