**We are in the process of searching for a home, and even put in an offer on one we love! But
**My husband has been working a lot this week, so Benji boy and I have been hanging with grandma, which (other than stinky blue guy) is his absolute favorite thing in the whole world. He really loves his grandma. We've been going to the neighbor's house and swinging, walking, playing, reading, swimming, and all around having fun together. I adore this age with Ben's new mobility and his excitement for doing things (and it's easier to go out now and not bring 452 items or a diaper bag!) Amen? One more thing to love about the toddler stage. Maybe it's because I'm not a "baby mom", and maybe that's because our first few months together kind of sucked, or maybe it's because I work with kids at school and love the older ages, or maybe it's because it's awesome watching your drooling blob turn into a real human with a personality...but I really do love this stage. I say, bring on the toddler years!
**I've been guest teaching a bit, and lately I have really been missing my work in the classroom. Because kids are hilarious. And colleagues are nice. And using my brain for something more invigorating that making animal noises is always a win. But I choose Ben. I love him more than I loved my career. Hands down. Because he makes funny faces, like this one.
**After my travel post last week, I'm getting more serious about planning the top secret, super sneaky surprise trip for my husband and I this spring. Stay tuned. It's exciting!
Hope everyone makes it through Wednesday unscathed! Also, I'm guest posting today over at RHOCC about tipping the balance between marriage and baby. Head over and check it out if you get a chance!
