Lately, I’ve gotten into doing puzzles in the evening, while chatting with Alex or watching Downton Abbey. There’s nothing more relaxing, and how incredibly adorable are these numbers? At 8″ x 8″, they take less than twenty minutes, and they’d make a great birthday or host gift.
After years of Peppa Pig and Bubble Guppies, the boys have finally gotten into a show that we’re all gripped by. The Hunt is a nature documentary series following animals, like polar bears, tigers and chimpanzees, as they target their prey. There’s so much strategy. We’re all on pins and needles.
Side note: This morning, I walked Anton to school (no tears today!), and as we approached his classroom, his face lit up. “Look,” he whispered, pointing to his teacher. “SHE IS WEARING CHEETAH SHOES.” She had on simple leopard print flats, but in that moment she might as well have been in a full-on Halloween costume. What a thrill.
What kind of socks do you wear? A few years ago, Alex gave me a bunch of playful pairs for Christmas, and it’s weird how such a little thing can brighten your day. Here are a few cuties out right now: face, dots, astrology and sheep.
What are you up to these days? Hope you’re having a good one. xoxo
