The highlights reel

9 Jun

Well hi. I feel like it’s been awhile. That was my fault really. Time does fly, doesn’t it.

To catch you up on the latest news, here are the top 10 happenings in the last few weeks. Our little family highlight real, in no particular order:

1. I got promoted! It’s now Assistant Director Rebecca. Yay me!

2. The impossible has happened- I managed to get 100 people (half of them kids) through a culinary extravaganza and no one got hurt. There was even liquid nitrogen. And knives. And hot surfaces. You can read about it here.

3. I officially decided that my maternity leave starts August 6 after learning that my place of employment does not (as standard practice) offer paid maternity leave. As in ZERO days of paid leave. But if you work a little magic with sick days (and vow to yourself that you won’t get sick next year) poof!, a three month paid maternity leave appears.

4. Henry learned how to kiss. To kiss- you smush your faces together and say “Mmmm-WAH!”

5. Henry laughed victoriously as his long hair continued to mock me.

6. Our family started its trek into normalcy as we consider (ugh) a second car and a double stroller (double ugh).

7. My little brother and his lovely fiancee FINALLY announced their wedding. I can hardly wait!

8. This might be the best banana bread ever. Especially when you add a ton of chocolate chips and walnuts then sprinkle sugar on top.

9. Reality TV season started. I know you’re all excited.

10. Deron continues to impress me for many, many reasons. I love you hubby!

    Congrats on the promotion! I enjoyed the write-up of the cooking class experience….fun for the kids…and I HOPE somebody got to bake a choc. cake for YOU during the whole thing.

    I am an observer of baby strollers at the barn. Moms shopping alone usually use umbrella strollers….If dad is pushing a stroller…then a heavy duty “Travel System” preferably with 3 bicycle wheels for a macho look….is the baby’s “ride”. Moms just need a baby transporter they can juggle into a normal car trunk by themselves.

    P.S. I figured Henry would still have his curly hair…that first haircut is HARD!
