As mentioned last week, it was Camp Mama at our house with daycare closed. I realize how lucky I am to have a work schedule that's flexible and thanks to some prep work and emails at nap time (which has mysteriously dropped to 2 hours max?!??!), I spent the days on Ellerie's timezone and it went great. I have all the respect in the world for the parents who are working full-time from home each day with little ones. This week was a reminder that my kid is the coolest, but also that we need childcare help to keep the ship afloat long-term.
Something I wasn't planning on but I am happy to have accomplished is the new girls' room. There are still some tweaks to be made and I will have a full post on this soon (with product sources). But this week, I added some tape to the walls, re-hung a lot of art, put together her toddler bed, rearranged everything (we're going to have a sleep side and a play side) and got started sewing a rope rug. (Which is currently screwing up my sewing machine.) I'm hoping to have it "done" by Monday.
Ellerie is still sleeping in the crib but we're planning to get her in the bed for naps and then overnights over the next few weeks. When I think about all the things to worry about this fall, transitioning Ellerie to a toddler bed is about item #97 on the list. We'll get there.
And this weekend my parents are coming to town! I'm excited to see them and show them the new parks we've been exploring lately. Ellerie is a totally different kid than she was five weeks ago, I can't wait for them to meet the new her. (And see all that hair in person!)
Have a good one!
