Cheers to the arrival of Spring – a season full of hope, growth, and new beginnings. Intrigued by the Mum’s List Linky Party, I’m trying something new and joining the Linky Party (who doesn’t love a party?) by writing my own Mums’ List recap of the week.
This week we saw new life growing before our eyes as the tomato and herb starts we planted a short while back sprouted with pride. My little sprout was delighted to see the tiny plants grow before her eyes.
My husband and I started a healthy new routine of running after work. Its the first thing we do after work – we load up the kids in our double jogging stroller and go for a run together…well, more of a jog at this point but its a good start. I feel better, I sleep better, and its proven to be a wonderful way to clear my head from the stress of the day. I enjoy spending the time together as a family. It also gives my husband a rare opportunity to talk to me without being interrupted – I can barely breathe while we run, talking and interrupting just isn’t possible.
Our baby boy reached the new milestone of saying words, and it warms my heart to hear him say “mama” and “mummm”. Special thanks to my husband (a uniquely wonderful stay-at-home dad) for capturing the moment on video and sending it to me while I was at work this week.
This week I made a new commitment to include an image in every post: its more interesting for readers, posts with images receive more traffic, a great image makes a great pin, and pinned posts reach a larger audience. Fellow Pinterest addicts can follow me here.
Lastly, I made a new post, playing with food is fun, to my blog this week…because life is a party and PB&J doesn’t have to be so boring.
And that concludes what I hope to be the first of many Mum’s List weekly recaps. Cheers to all, and hello spring!
