How do you feel about Facebook’s time hop feature? Like, sometimes I love it and laugh and reshare the post and then sometimes I see things I would like to forget.
Facebook reminded me this week though that a year ago, right now, we were fa la la-ing in Disney World and I was basically in heaven eating my favorite chocolate covered apple with marshmallow ears in Magic Kingdom.
We love Disney, especially this time of year. It’s so festively fun that even if you don’t celebrate Christmas (which we don’t), you learn to feel the holiday spirit, even if Hanukkah has already come and gone.
While we won’t be in Disney this Christmas, we will be in Boston next week which we are getting really excited about. It’s a short little road trip adventure which means no flying which means pack as much peanut butter as you want (you know, in case of emergency) because there’s no airport security to tell me what I can and can’t travel with.
Did you see this toy list that every 80’s girl wanted for Christmas? I had every toy listed (gosh I miss my Barbie house!) except for Teddy Ruxbin which is still a sensitive issue if you must know the truth. I don’t even want to talk about it but you can be sure I will bring it up again today with my father who was in charge of the toy buying and for some reason, still left unexplained, he decided I didn’t need this talking teddy bear.
Only child syndrome at it’s finest right here.
I turned out okay, really I did. My son on the other hand, I don’t really know how he is going to turn out as it can’t be anything other than downhill from here now that he has decided that breakfast isn’t important.
In fact, he told me just the other morning on the ride to school as I tried to verbally force breakfast down his throat, “No one even eats breakfast anymore mom. I know, it starts something up in your metabolism or whatever but I am not hungry and like, no one I know eats in the morning.”
I do not know who this child is. He cannot be mine. Not hungry in the morning? What does that even feel like? I have never missed a breakfast in my life unless I was sick with a stomach bug.
I have tried making him smoothies for breakfast, even sharing my frozen blueberries and Skoop to trick him into drinking a meal. I have followed him to the car with English muffins covered in peanut butter and actual plates of waffles with syrup and banana.
And the syrup drips off of the plate onto the seat when he leaves the entire thing behind as he jumps out of the car. Don’t even ask, I need a car wash.
I have resorted to waffles in baggies too thinking how portably creative I am but he leaves it behind. It’s not like the other kids can tell it’s a Trader Joe’s blueberry waffle I tell him but whatever, it’s a hopeless cause at the moment.
Luckily I don’t have to chase him down with breakfast for almost two weeks < – another reason I appreciate winter break.
I took out my new 2016 Erin Condren life planner last night because Amanda’s all gung ho about starting anew and it’s slowly rubbing off on me. I have been hanging tight to my 2015 Erin Condren notebook but I have decided to slowly start breaking this pretty new planner in anyway. I hate to start writing on the crisp clean pages — What if I make a mistake? Use the wrong color ink? I don’t want to ruin it yet!
