If you follow me on Instagram, (ashleywbrickner), you may have seen that we got snow this week! :) To most of you our dusting of barely an inch would hardly be worth mentioning, but for us, it was exciting!! Last year we randomly had a few snowstorms but have had nothing so far this year (just freezing temps with nothing to show for it), so I have been waiting for Waverly to experience it all winter.
I knew she would love it!
I knew she would love it!
She adored it, every bit of it, so much that all she wanted to do was eat it. ;) We brought out her breakfast to distract her & she had the best time, she is such an outdoor girl! The forecast is calling for another round on Monday, we are crossing our fingers for more snow this time. And hoping if it does, it snows enough for my husband to have to stay home from work too, my five-month pregnant self certainly does not need to be taking Waverly Maye down any hills, though I know one little lady who would be all about that activity.
Along with the snow came a two-hour school delay, which I could not have been happier about! Keeping it real, I have been throwing myself a bit of a pity party about being a working mom lately. I like to think of myself as a glass half full kind of person & always try to focus on the positive parts of working, but sometimes it's just really, really hard. Getting up at 5:00 each morning is kicking my ass, I usually am fine throughout the day but come late afternoon (when I actually get to be with Waverly), I am exhausted & making it through to (my 8:00) bedtime is a serious challenge. Maybe the hardest, most days Waverly is still sleeping when I leave, I hate it that I have to go that long without seeing her, especially since the mornings are by far her happiest times. She really is so much fun to be around, sometimes I am jealous of all the fun she has with other people besides me. I know it is only going to get harder with two, the thought of leaving both my girls next year scares me on a daily basis. Yet ultimately I do know there are perks & downfalls to any situation, that my schedule really is ideal, & I have SO much to be thankful for.
These hormones just aren't currently doing me any favors.
And in other, less-emotional news, Waverly painted her nails all on her own for the first time this week! Clear, glitter nail polish for the win, she was OBSESSED & so proud of her little self. She even tried to bring all four bottles of her new nail polish to dinner, I thought I could have saved the "we don't paint our nails at the dinner table" comment until her high school years, yet no such luck. ;)
Finally, happy super bowl weekend, friends!! Eat lots of food & drink a beer for me. :)
