Man I can’t believe its nearly the end of September already! They say time goes faster as you get older & they weren’t wrong.
So I thought it would be a good idea to join up with Pip at Meetmeatmikes & do a taking stock post to document where I’m starting from & see how much things may change or stay the same as I periodically complete her list below.
I also thought this would be a good way to “pop my blogging cherry” so to speak & give you a little bit more of an insight into my world. If you want to play along, I’ve attached a copy of the list at the end of this post for you to copy & paste, just be sure to credit & link back to Pip if you do.
Cooking: Baby food/meals for the freezer, muffins, roasts & other quick, simple dinners
Drinking: Cups & cups of tea, chai lattes & hazelnut hot chocolates- warming myself up from the inside out
Reading: Bedtime stories- Enid Bylton at the moment & lots & lots of blogs over on Bloglovin.
Wanting: A massage & a decent nights sleep. My whole body aches & I’m so very, very tired
Looking: for my 4 yr olds misplaced items daily, lost hats, shoes, toys etc
Playing: Lots of backyard cricket & soccer
Wishing: Time would slow down. Seriously, September’s nearly over already & Pumpkin is almost ONE!!
Enjoying: Sunny days, or at least I was. What happened to Spring? It feels like winter again here at the moment.
Waiting: On Hubby to get home. Every day it’s getting later & later with the crazy hours he’s doing
Liking: All things “Donuts” at the moment, like this cute new stationery range from Hippo Blue.
Wondering: If I’ll ever get a decent nights sleep again
Loving: Family catch ups
Pondering: Backyard designs. We’ve been in our home for 6 months now & want to start making some changes
Considering: Doing a nutritional cleanse
Buying: 1st birthday party supplies
Watching: ABC4 kids- all.the.time!
Hoping: To win the lotto! A girl can dream right? However I’d have a better chance of winning if I actually bought a ticket!
Marvelling: At the beauty of mother nature
Needing: SLEEP!! 11 months of very few hours a night is taking its toll
Questioning: Every parenting decision I make & wondering if doing things differently would have had a different or better result
Smelling: Dirty nappies. Yep it’s gross, but true. Try not to be too jealous of my glamorous life
Wearing: Slippers & scarves. I LOVE scarves
Following: My baby Pumpkin EVERYWHERE as he’s very mobile & into EVERYTHING & everything goes in his mouth
Noticing: All the tiny baby contraband items lying around, I need to be on my game (see above)
Knowing: That I’m doing the best I can with where I am right now, although sometimes that’s easier said than done to remember
Thinking: About a holiday. It’s been a long time since we last had a proper one.
Admiring: People who jump in & “start” to go after what they want. Like Carly & her new business venture Little Lettie Boxes or Jo & her colourful new blog Say Hello Jo I procrastinate too much & overthink everything. I just need to “DO”.
Sorting: Baby and Kids clothes, both boys are having a growth spurt & it’s hard keeping up
Getting: Grey hairs! These boys are aging me prematurely
Disliking: Yelling so often at naughty children
Opening: Bills. Gah- Car rego, service & insurance all due this month. Yuck!
Giggling: At Peanut & Pumpkins antics. They are so funny & cute together
Feeling: Tired. Beyond exhausted
Snacking: On chocolate, muesli bars & muffins- yep junk food, not good but the necessities of an emotional, stressed out & sleep deprived mumma
Helping: A friend through a difficult time, or at least I hope I am in some way
Hearing: Keith Urban, CDs, DVDs & Peanut singing the songs constantly. He’s obsessed & has a little man crush, it’s a bit cute.
Do you Take Stock? Let me know in the comments below so I can come check out your lists too. Or if you haven’t done it before why not give it a try now.
