First full week of both boys back in school + a bully incident + potty-training a certain toddler = VERY. LONG. WEEK. It’s funny how the context of poop can make or break your day. Poop in the potty? Good day. Poop on a shirt? Less so. Also, bullies suck. Anyway, I shouldn’t complain. Everyone here is happy and healthy and that’s all that really matters.
A few goodies that got me through the week…
*A local midcentury gem in need of a good family. (The virtual tour is lengthy but totally worth it! I’ve watched it no less than three times.)
*Feeling the love in this nursery.
*In collaboration with LG, Nate designed a kitchen almost as handsome as himself. He also created a bunch of short videos that cover a range of kitchen-related topics. My favorites? Layering in the kitchen and a well-appointed kitchen. Seriously. Can’t he just stop being so good for one minute?!
*A reader suggested The Not So Big Life. I can’t wait to read it.
*I love seeing cool people making cool things in Ohio. Especially when it involves leatha.
*My kids are obsessed with Calvin & Hobbes. OBSESSED. Have you seen Dear Mr. Watterson? I think it’s going to be the feature of our next family movie night.
Enjoy the long weekend! We’re sticking close to home (ahem, we’re in throes of potty-training) and surprising the boys with a DIY project inspired by their love of Calvin & Hobbes. If it turns out half as good as the image in my mind, they are going to flip. Also, I gave Steve homework ;) He’s coming up with a list of the top 10 features of his dream home. I’ll share it next week. I’m curious to see how our lists compare.
