Outside my window… it’s nighttime. Believe it or not, I sat down to do this blog post about ten hours ago…

I am thinking… about some exciting news from one of my friends who is being published! Look for an author interview later this year!

I am thankful for… the challenge of motherhood.

From the learning rooms… we made a rain gauge today! We are learning about weather and meteorology. It’s raining slightly, so perhaps we will have a measurement tomorrow.

From the kitchen… bright yellow, smiling-face cake pops. The kiddos have been helping out and are incredibly excited. They assure me that they are DELICIOUS!

I am wearing… my second set of clothes today due to the baby currently sitting on my lap. Mothers out there are probably all nodding in empathy as they read this.

I am creating… Munchkin’s Christmas sweater. Hopefully on the right size knitting needles this time.

I am going… to have nothing left on my desk once Little Guy is done! He’s in the everything-looks-interesting-I-must-grab-it-and-put-it-in-my-mouth stage.

I am reading… bits of a few different books, but I’ll be doing the Bloom book club book What Women Fear as well for the next several weeks. Check out the link in the sidebar!

I am hoping… to get back to more regular blogging. Real life sort of gets interesting at times.

I am hearing… the Little Guy exercising his voice. I keep trying to get him to say, “Mama”.

Pondering these words… the only thing coming to mind right now is the poem we read about kangaroos today… I’m actually not kidding.

Around the house… the Little Guy has discovered the piano.

One of my favorite things… getting to see my little ones learn and discover.

A few plans for the rest of the week: Nothing out of the ordinary I hope! A nice, calm week would be good. Of course, I still have to decide what sort of cake (or cake pops) that Camo will be having for his birthday next month. He originally wanted a volcano cake, but he’s since become enamored with the cake pops. (Seriously, whenever I sit down with a cookbook or food magazine he asks to look at it too!)
