A Peek Into Last Week (+ an upgrade on my routine tracker & objectives!)

I’m in the middle of a great deal of media (podcast, TELEVISION, radio interviews) for my brand-new book that comes out in March. So Jesse has actually been discovering enjoyable things to do with the 3 kids on my recording early mornings.

This previous week, he took them all to a regional indoor health club that is extremely inclusive for kids with specials needs and they all had the very best time. Kierstyn has actually asked every early morning if they can return!

We invest a fair bit of time today at basketball video games cheering on Silas. He’s been using 2 various groups and liking it!

Micah turned 7 months old recently!! He’s consumed with food and wishes to attempt anything and whatever! He’s such a sweet present to our house and brings a lot laughter and pleasure!

We had a truly frightening experience with David recently. I shared more about it in this post. I’m so grateful he’s doing much better and back to his typical daring self!

Listen to your teens — particularly when they inform you that your denims are uncomplimentary.

The ladies have actually been informing me for a very long time that all of my denims are the incorrect cut for my physique. But I had a hard time to listen to them due to the fact that I’ve been using this exact same standard cut of denims for practically all my adult life (well, since I stopped being dresses/skirts just back when I remained in my early 20’s — which is an entire other Instagram post!).

I had a great deal of reasons regarding why their recommendations for attempting various jean designs wouldn’t work and, for months, I simply made reasons and carried on.

But I lastly took a great long appearance in the mirror and understood possibly there was some benefit to their mild recommendations.

So I inquired to take me to the shopping center to discover more lovely jean designs. And we had the very best time together — despite the fact that I did still demonstration at a few of their recommended choices.

We got home with 2 sets from American Eagle — one set of jeggings that simply may fit me much better than any set of denims ever has (swipe to see) and one set of high waisted denims that still freaks me out a bit that I believe I am going to find out to like.

And I need to confess: I ought to have listened to their motivation long back rather of stubbornly sticking to what I’ve constantly used. I type of seem like I may never ever shop once again without their oversight.

Kierstyn has actually been caring doing preschool with me every day!

She’s likewise caring swimming lessons!

Here’s my upgrade on my Habits Chart from recently. My objective is to have 5 x’s in each line — I struck that in 10 lines this previous week — which I was so ecstatic about!!
