Friday Favorites: Up with the Birds

Welcome to Friday favorites: a weekly linky for your favorite blog posts from the week co-hosted by Maya of Musings of a Marfan Mom and me!

In addition to the linky, I'm taking this opportunity each week to write a little bit about a my favorite moments from the past week. I hope you'll feel inspired to leave a comment telling me about your favorite thing(s) that happened this week, too!

These are a few of my favorite things:

I'm not going to lie: it's been a tough week around here. Daniel kicked off last weekend with a fever, and he was recovering from that well into the week. Jaymz and I have also been battling various sinus issues lately. On top of family colds, Daniel isn't sleeping very well, so we've all been up with the birds every day this week (most days around 5AM, but a few days were earlier than that—ouch!). The weather has been fairly cool and comfortable here until yesterday, but it's going to heat up a lot this weekend and I'm apprehensive about what effect that will have on our sleep. Please send us all your deep, restorative sleepy vibes!

I do have one fun favorite moment to share from this week: Yesterday, Daniel and I were in the car driving back home from preschool and we stopped at a red light. All of a sudden, Daniel exclaimed, "Oh—Momma! There's a beetle crawling on our car!" Sure enough, I looked in the rear-view mirror and saw an insect (though maybe not technically a beetle) crawling on the back windshield toward the roof of the car. Daniel went on to narrate everything the beetle did until he couldn't see it anymore. I loved getting to share in Daniel's joy in watching this little bug: it was something so simple and yet so surprising and wonderful to him.

What was one of your favorite moments from the week?

  1. that's so cute about the beetle! Now, could you have been so happy and calm and interested if it had been inside the car? That's where I'm really challenged.

    1. Haha, good point, Tree! I think I would've been fine with a beetle inside the car. Now, if it was a wasp, that would be a different story!

  2. What an awesome happy moment to share! I think my favorite moment this week was when I jumped a personal hurdle and spoke to a stranger I felt I could help on Wednesday.

    I'm good with talking to strangers in general, but had been working up to this.


Thanks for your comment! I love hearing from you.
