Welcome to June! The last weekend of May brought at least a little sunshine so we cannot complain!
A couple weeks ago Brie contacted me saying she would be coming through Red Deer this afternoon so I decided to get Avery early from dayhome so we could meet up. We met her and Sully at Cool Beans for coffee and so the kids could play in the sandbox.
It was so nice to meet them both! Like I told Brie it was like we had had already met
That evening my Mom brought over a book she bought me, The Happiest Toddler on the Block so I spent most of the evening reading it. I loved the baby version so hoping I get some tips from this one too. Around 9pm I started to have a bad pain near my left hip bone but thought nothing of it (blamed cramps) until I went to sit up and could barely walk it hurt so bad. It hurt to lay on that side as well. I hoped it would pass in the night.
I woke up with the pain still, but since it was no worse I knew it was nothing too serious. Since it only hurt to touch and when I used certain muscles I came to the conclusion that I somehow must have pulled a muscle.
We packed up early and headed to the market, it was a tad chilly and poor Avery had shorts on – Mom of the year here After we went to a couple garage sales, and returned my running shoes again – I am not crazy, the arch was off in the one shoe!
Playing around with her current favourtie toy:
After Avery’s nap we headed down to Kerrywood Nature Centre to go for a walk and to Imagination Grove.
We wanted to rent a movie and stopped by the video store, where they happen to have ice cream…
That night we had a family movie night and made a floor bed, Avery last almost 30 minutes before she went to bed and we watched the rest of the movie (The Interview).
I woke up with only a little pain so knew it was nothing too serious. But decided I better run inside just in case. I also wanted to test out the new shoes (Mizuno Wave Riders 18) inside before taking them outside.
The first few km’s my right foot was hurting but it got better after that. I was SO hot, even though our basement is cool and I had a fan on me. Hence the minimal clothing.
10km in just under 53 minutes.
Brunch was pancakes, so easy! I doubled the batch when I didn’t need to so we have pancakes for days now.
We baked muffins then spent time in the yard, I had more seeds to plant (I usually plant a couple times a few weeks apart) and we brought the water table into the yard for Avery.
It did not last long, she was not herself most of the day and very whiny. So she went for an early nap while I cleaned the house.
Another short nap meant Avery was still cranky so we spent some time cuddling and playing before supper. Supper was southwestern salad, so good! The dressing made it, just avocado, garlic, cilantro, lime juice and plain Greek yogurt.
Since we had an early supper we headed to the park and Avery was finally happy, maybe she was stir crazy?!
We ended the night with a semi successful bath time. It has been over a week of bad fights and fits over bath time, she went from loving them to hating them so we have been trying everything to help the situation and hoping it is short lived.
