Is everyone is a calorie hang over from the Superbowl? I don't know it if was just this year or if I was just more aware of it this year but there was SO much food posted on Facebook. Like seriously, no calories or greasy food was left behind based on Facebook. I celebrated in a pretty glamorous fashion. At home, by myself with a sick child and leftover macaroni and cheese. What is that? You are super jealous? Well you should be. ;-)
Other things that I learned during this really magical week of parents
My child will not watch cartoons or animated movies, but he will stop in his tracks for Gilmore Girls. He gets excited when he hears the theme song and does a little dance. I do not even know how many episodes we watched this weekend. As much as I love this show, even I was sick of it by Sunday night.
This scene makes me laugh every time. You really have to watch it to fully appreciate it, but trust me, it is funny.
Other things I learned is how important your spouse is. Both China Man and I operated on around 3-4 hours of sleep for around 3 days. It wasn't always pretty but we survived.
Winning spouses are the ones that drive out to get cough medicine and orange juice in the middle of snowstorm.
Things that help you survive fun weeks like the one we just had would be ice cream, Chinese take out, comfy clothes, a sense of humor ( although by Sunday that disappeared) and coffee.
So that is an update on my life the past few days. I have high expectations for this week, primarily I expect it will include more sleep, less runny noses, less crying, more cleaning and more fun.
