Payson is in this phase where he laughs every time he does something I just told him not to. It’s the type of laugh, and accomplaning smile, that says, “I know you told me not to, but it’s so funny!”
The sign on the door to the waiting room says to keep it closed. Naturally when I told Payson this he wanted nothing more in the world than to open that door.
I was wise and brought hard candies to keep the kids mouths busy during my exam. During our little wait for the doctor I played a guessing game with them about what the candies looked like, what color, what shape, what flavor. I also asked them how many they think I brought with me and who I was going to give the first candy to and then who second and third.
Sounds boring but little things like that make outings great. Keeping their minds occupied, no matter with what lame tricks, is the key to behavorial success with this bunch 🙂
We stopped at Sprouts since it’s in the same area of town. I needed coconut oil and diapers. I use cloth about 80% of the time but when on errands and at bedtime I put Ember in disposables.
I like this picture even though it’s blurry.
I attempted some pictures to show my haircut but wasn’t very successful.
Sierra was watching me so I had her be in one with me.
I asked my doctor about exercising and he said I could start doing cardio! Yay! I’m ten pounds from my goal weight and hopeful I can lose the last of this weight by June.
Just gotta pay attention to what my body is telling me as far as how much I push it. I know starting off will be mild because I do still get sore when I do too much (which is daily with four kids! ha) so nothing that requires too much use of my core. Probably just long walks pushing the stroller and wearing Ember for now. In two weeks he said I could start trying weight stuff if I want. Again, gotta pay attention to my body and how it’s healing.
As soon as Ember wakes up from her nap we’re all going to go take a walk. I’ve been desperate to get out of the house as much as possible lately.
I went yesterday and signed the kids up for swimming, dance, and gymnastics classes and bought summer movie passes for all of us. I’m so excited for this summer and all the activities! I’ve been bored out of my mind home bound this month!
