Would you like to see what my week has been like? I’d like to share it with you…..and hear about your’s, too.
Every weekend, I’ll be bringing you my “Week in Review.” No promises though (sometimes daily life is just too busy). I think it would be nice to share with you all a little bit about my week, share some fun things you may have missed on the blog and my other social media sites, and a few pictures, of course.
So let’s start sharing! It’ll be fun.
To be honest, this week sucked. It was that “time of the month” (ugh and eww) and I just overall felt crummy and emotional. I ended up having a crying meltdown on Tuesday. Children wouldn’t nap, I felt overwhelmed with my to do list. Do you get like that? I LOVE my children, but I NEED a break during the day. To sit down without a child being on top of me and to just take some time for myself. To recharge, I guess. There are days where it seems like that doesn’t happen and those days are tough.
Things seemed to get better as the week went on. Eric and I brainstormed ways to make my day go better (isn’t he great!?) and we made some changes to Haley’s sleeping arrangements. We were attempting to transition her to her crib for naps since she’s mobile now and it’s too much of a risk to have her nap on our bed without me there. It wasn’t going well and that’s where the majority of my stress was coming from. We decided that moving our bed down to the floor was a better alternative than spending an hour getting her to nap for 10 minutes. She’ll nap in our bed just fine. I get a break and she’s safe. Win Win.
I prepped all my dinners ahead of time for the week and used my crockpot. I prepared all 5 recipes from this post, but only ended up making the Coconut Chicken Curry and the Orange Chicken. The recipes made a ton and we ended up eating leftovers for several nights!
I had a few babywearing friends over, too. It was fun to get together and practice with our woven wraps. Do you like to babywear? It’s one of my passions. Even more so then how much I love cloth diapers. If you’ve been reading for awhile, then you know I lead my local babywearing group. I’m working on getting our group part of Babywearing International. It’s actually quite a lengthy process. Have you read my babywearing series on Earthy Crunchy Mama? The wrap in the picture below is a Didymos Eva Size 5 and we’re doing a Reinforced Rucksack Carry Tied in Front (RRTIF).
Haley turned 8 months this week! Post and pictures to come!

You should definitely come over to Facebook. We’ve been having lots of fun conversations over there – cloth diapers, babywearing, baby food, etc! I’d love it if you chimed in!
