This was a big week in our household. We got a new sofa! I got some new rain boots! Jackson got a new watch! And Drew got a haircut! Ok, so the haircut is the least exciting because he gets one every two weeks, but I couldn’t leave him in the cold on our list of new things. Anyway, maybe not the most exciting week ever, but pretty good for a post-holiday, middle of January, spring-is-still-two-months-away week. Also, Jackson drew that ‘I heart U’ note for me above and that was pretty sweet, too. And he learned to tell time, too! Like, for-real tell-time (well, to the closest five-minute mark), which, as a parent, is such a cool thing to witness. He’s been obsessed with time and clocks for the last couple of months and my parents got him this toy clock (with corresponding time cards) for Christmas and he’s been watching a couple apps on the iPad about telling-time, like this one, and then we got him his watch and suddenly it all clicked, just like that. Watching your kid develop interests and passions (Jackson’s biggest passion so far seems to be learning, in general, and figuring out how things work) is one of the best things about being a parent. It helps balance out the boogers and toilet-training mishaps and public meltdowns and meal-refusals. Mostly.
How was your week? What are you up to this weekend? Who else is sick of winter yet? And who has upcoming vacation plans some place warm to make me jealous?
