Emily, from Chatting at the Sky, is hosting a link-up for the things we learned in June. And because link-ups are fun…here’s mine! :) we’d love to have you join us!
- After two years of marriage, I finally learned my husband is not a morning person o.O
- I miss lifeguarding and teaching swim lessons in the summer…until that 50 degree June morning when I’m driving by the shivering inhabitants of the public pool. Then I am so glad to be done! :)
- I am much more productive with a schedule, though I have yet to follow mine very well for more than a day or two at a time.
- There is a significant difference between raw and pasteurized milk. My poor child was the subject of this sad experiment. His insides and sleeping habits are much happier with raw milk.
- Foxes are not as scared of people as they should be (my husband had to chase one away from our grilling food!) and weekends away are wonderful.
- Dates outside of the routine are great! I loved getting the chance to go on a date on a thursday afternoon with my 9-6 and other hours all over the clock working husband. It was relaxing and fun.
- I am always able to more easily appreciate and love on my baby after a few hours away in good company. And he has tons of fun with his Aunties and NaNa.
- A mop is a worthwhile expenditure :) my floors are much cleaner and my home is more peaceful now.
- Cars with air conditioning are great. Even if they are stick-shifts and you actually need to think to drive. Bonus: the elevated heart rate and sense of awareness are kind of like a caffeine hit.
- Always say yes to hand-me-down clothes for you or your kiddos. You never know what may come of it and you can always pass them on. I’m currently looking at 8ish bags of little girl and baby girl clothes (can’t wait to go through them soon!) and totally lucked out in the maternity clothes department a couple weeks ago.
- 15 month olds are perfectly capable of going on a short hike. You just need to bring snacks and water…and be prepared to let them ride your shoulders all the way home.
- Though exactly new knowledge: books are a big deal for me and I have bunches I feel like are worth sharing. The first batch in my new series were for recovering perfectionistas: Books for the Journey: Beating Back “Perfect” .
