Cooking dinner is my favorite time of the day. I clean up the kitchen (somewhat) before I start and my menu is basically planned. It's time where I can "create" in the kitchen by myself. And hopefully my toddler isn't getting into too much stuff in the living room while I'm in there doing it!
I've never been a morning person, but I'm finding that I like setting my alarm to get up around 7:00am. Now that Jillian doesn't sleep as late, it's nice to have an hour-ish to get some caffeine in me and do some blog posts (I'd say catch up on reading blog posts, but I'm really behind on that - SORRY!).
9:10am is too early for a toddler's class to start. See above; I'm not a morning person. The class that Jillian attends at My Gym starts at 9:10am Monday. Ouch. We've been late the past two weeks. Her class Friday starts at 11:35am. Too late - totally into naptime by the end of class. The "just right" class for us is around 10 or 10:30am. Too bad the classes offered at that time for her are on days we're babysitting. Bummer.
And while I'm babbling about My Gym, let me just say that my daughter *hearts* it there. We took her for parents night out (where they watch the kids from 5:30-8:30pm and feed them dinner for just $25) on Friday, and before we were even out the door she was off playing. I don't even think she looked our way as we left. Now, I don't want to be the parent whose child throws a screaming fit every time she's left somewhere, but maybe just a little "sad-to-see-you-go" or "I'll-miss-you" face?
I think that wraps it for WILTW. For more, you can check out Jo-Lynne's awesome blog!!
