My first baby, my Mosie, my little lovebug, turns 5 tomorrow. 5 years went by in a flash. I expect the next to go by faster. Excuse me while I go cry for a minute.

Read to the boys every day. 

We finally got a mattress for the other half of the un-bunked bunk bed and Moses and Manny are room sharing now! So, since I had to do a little re-arranging, I went to work on the book bins and pulled out a few that had been forgotten in the living room. Stellaluna was one of them. Moses saw the cover and was like, “UGH, this one is so boring!” and then requested it again the next night. And the next night. And all the nights. Kids…

Read 25 books (23/25) (not related to above)

I finished Travels with My Aunt. I started reading that book LAST YEAR, and kept coming back to it here and there. I really liked the story and it felt like something that could be a great BBC miniseries. Maybe it is? Oh, just checked, it was adapted to film by George Cukor with Lou Gossett Jr! Ok, now I have to watch it. But also, they should make it into a miniseries. I started Crazy Salad and Scribble, Scribble by Nora Ephron because I’ve been obsessed with Good Girls Revolt on Amazon. And it is two books in one, so I SHOULD get credit for reading two books when I’m finished, but I won’t. And that is an INJUSTICE. My Homegoing audio book expired before I could finish, and I requested the hard copy from the library instead. I’m like 300 on the list, so it might be a while before I can get back to it.

On Saturday I just kept my phone in the charger and didn’t use it except at the gym. And for a little while to decompress while the children were playing ball in the house with their father which I have expressly said to not do. I’m such a Jan.
