so…it's friday. things are looking promising for a fun weekend ahead - graduation party, baby shower, and rumor has it farmer might take kaye on an overnight adventure giving me the freedom to do…whatever i want. mostly i'm just excited to not have to think of what to feed her. the day girlfriend can put together a bowl of cereal is the day…is the day i get to drink a warm cup of coffee. it's the little things.

let's get to it…

1 | last night i saved my very best gal, my turtle, my kaye from certain injury. well…at least a few tears. we put her to bed, kissed her good night, and not 10 minutes later i saw her on the monitor with two legs dangling over the side. girlfriend is due for a big girl bed, i guess.

i was nearly certain we wouldn't need to explore this until after her second birthday. how wrong i was. so now i've gotten the go-ahead to find a bed + mattress for <$100. yeah…in my farmer's dreams. with my deep-seeded obsession with pottery barn, i'm exploring a bed or two there…and also have my eyeball on the jenny lind bed from land of nod. it's darling.

2 | farmer is finished planting corn which means we get our evenings together again…at least until the alfalfa needs baled. unfortunately this also means i have to learn out to share the remote and be conversational. both skills i lost in the last two months.
3 | kaye has returned to beast-mode. i don't know what's gotten into her. maybe some more molars are coming in? she's so quick to throw herself to the ground and bang her head when she's not immediately appeased. i've never loved and disliked someone so much at the same time. no, this does not make me a bad mom. yes, it does give me a glimpse into the future of the emotional roller coaster she'll be sending her suiters on. that's fun.

4 | it's officially staying light outside until well after 9 pm. what does this mean? i have exactly zero excuse to not work out. if i don't get my workout in between the hours of 6 - 8 am (kaye is still sleeping) i have the option of working out between the hours of 12:30 - 3:30 pm (kaye is napping). if i can't possibly find the time in those five (FIVE) hours, i have from 7:30 - 9:30 pm. that's seven hours of kaye-free time during the day that i have absolutely no excuse to not get my sweat on. it's time to get physical. physical. i want to get physical. thank you olivia newton-john.
5 | all this workout-talk has made me hungry. i've been thawing some delicious vanilla ice cream for the past 10 minutes. i think i'll top it with some crumbled oreos, chocolate syrup, and whipped cream. then i'll do as the models do and eat it with a tiny spoon to make it last longer.
