1. I’ve been reading up a storm the past few weeks and loving every minute of it! A few of my recent reads include Nothing to Envy, Edenbrooke, Bloom, and Heaven is Here. I highly recommend every one of those (especially Edenbrooke if you are looking for a quick, clean, romance)!
2. We only have three weeks left until school starts. I’m sad about it. I really love having my kids home and knowing what’s going on in their lives (since it’s like pulling teeth getting them to talk about school once they are home!). It will just be me and Poppy home again. She sure gets bored without them! We still have a few things to check off our summer bingo list (idea from Delia HERE) we made a few weeks ago, but it is fun to see all that we have done!
3. Update on my oldest son (Mr. Zippy): He is doing great! We took him to the doctor and he suggested waking him up half an hour before the night terrors start. He was also tested for diabetes since we figured his waking up is related to having to go potty all the time. He really pees more than all of us combined throughout the day. No joke. But his tests came back normal, which is great of course! We actually decided to see how it went and he’s gone from 2-3 a week, to none this week! The key was giving him a glass of milk before bed to help him sleep (whether that is indeed the case or in his brain he was convinced it would work), and also having Poppy sleep in their room! He mentioned when she sleeps in there he doesn’t have problems, and guess what? I thought back and realized he was right. So she’s been sleeping in there more. They have a bunk bed, with the bottom being a double bed so she sleeps down there with one of the boys. If they start again I will for sure try what his pediatrician suggested (along with some of you!). But I’m happy to report that he is doing really well.
5. As I said, I needed a break last weekend. My husband has been incredibly busy with work, which is great to help out financially, but he is working crazy long hours. But I thought it is cool and worth sharing that he is currently doing finish carpentry in the Salt Lake Temple while it is closed. It has been a really awesome experience for him. So though he is gone working crazy hours, it’s something he couldn’t pass up!
I hope you all have a great weekend!
