Mommy / Son Day

Because I'm a working momma, my time with Eli is quite precious. I mean between working, cleaning, cooking, and laundry our "one one one" time together is limited.

I of course include him in as many tasks as possible and take time to talk and sing with him while I busy around. I also make time each day to just play, but I want to be really intentional about spending special time with him each week. Last year I marked Thursdays on my calendar to go above and beyond when it comes to our time together and I look forward to carrying this tradition into 2012.
Yesterday we went to the library. It amazes me how something so mundane can truly delight a toddler. He was so excited! We checked out a few books on "big boy beds" to read since we are making the transition this weekend. We also picked up an Elmo Potty Time dvd since that is also something we are working on in the Watson home.

After the library we went Wendy's to get a a little treat. Can you tell he was enjoying the Frosty? We talked about the big boy he is becoming, pottying, and his new bed. It's hard to believe that I can carry on a conversation with him. This time last year we was barely talking!!

I know it doesn't sound like much, and maybe it isn't, but for now the library and Wendy's are just as exciting as going to the movies! Needless to say, I'm cashing in on his enthusiasm and embracing these sweet memories.

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt
