Work turned into a bit of a zoo this Spring. My kid also turned into a bit of a monster this Spring. But just periodically. And usually only when we worked long days and came home tired to begin with. It's like she knows. Or maybe is punishing me for being too busy with work. As if being too busy with work isn't its own punishment. We are dealing this week with intense melt downs about such important matters as putting shoes on, choice of dinner music, and most recently, me making her favorite dinner that she suddenly hates. BAAAAAAAAAHHHH!
I suppose it could all be much worse. At least she's healthy, smart, and will probably, maybe, most likely turn out to be normal and not hate us forever (or vice versa).
And Spring hasn't been all bad. We took an impromptu trip to Sequim and stayed in a cozy cabin by the water. Edie started gymnastics. We dyed easter eggs and had egg hunts. I turned 36. Edie had a bazillion playdates with Shreya. And sticking with my gym routine has helped lessen a stressful time.
AND I'm already looking ahead to a number of fun things to finish out 2015-
Memorial Day weekend in LA for a wedding with just Jeff
My favorite work gig of the year (4th year in a row)
SUMMER!! Orcas! Birch Bay!
Possibly a mother-daughter-grandmother trip to DC in June
Kindergarten!! (We are 4th on the wait list for our first choice school - cross your fingers for us!)
TWO trips to Palm Springs in the Fall/Winter - one with my entire side of the family and another with just my best girlfriends (no boys or kids allowed).
Anyways. Enough about me. How have you been? How're things? What's up?
