Week 5 (Jan. 29 – Feb. 4)

52 Weeks :: Week 5

5.3: Not Procrastinating
Since we don’t know when our life will get a little crazy with the addition of baby girl number three, Lucia and Mallory worked on getting Mal’s Valentines together for school (Mal helped with about 1/4 of the bags before she got bored with the activity). There are 14 girls (including Mal) and 15 boys in her preschool class and the bags contained gender-specific goodies: pencil, eraser, small pad of paper and some Mallory-friendly candy – lollipops. Coincidentally, Mallory picked out and put on her favorite outfit in the morning before we decided to work on her goodie bags.

5.4: A Small Treat
The girls were good for Lucia while they ran errands, so they got a ($1) treat: little “seeds” (what Mallory called them) that dissolve in water and turn into shaped sponges (these were Easter themed; Easter stuff is already in stores!). As per usual, Chelsea tore each of her sponges into a couple of pieces after they were done “growing.”

5.5: Hearts on the Window
Gran sent the girls some Valentine goodies this week (heart window clings and heart gummies). Chelsea was more interested in trying to stick her gummies to the window, with a little help from Mal. Chelsea’s hearts didn’t last long: she quickly scarfed down the gummies and several of her window clings ended up in two pieces.

5.5: Happy Birthday!
Jonathan turned 32 today (and the groundhog saw his shadow, so it’s another 6 weeks of winter)! And the girls were so very excited to wish him Happy Birthday when he got home from work (which was pretty late because it is busy season). Mallory helped wrap/decorate his presents and was eager to help him open them. And Chelsea sang a little bit of Happy Birthday to him.

5.7: Like Candy
Lucia was eating taking Tums today like it was candy because her pregnancy-induced heartburn just wouldn’t let up.

5.7: Makeshift Jungle Gym
The girls like to use the elliptical machine that’s upstairs in Lucia’s creative space as a makeshift (and dangerous) jungle gym (sadly the elliptical is hardly used for its intended purpose; maybe after the baby is born that will change??). It’s difficult to keep the girls off of it, especially since it is steps away from their play room.
