Games, get stronger, overload

July 11, 2017

1. ‘Ammal!’ Rachel exclaims, followed by ‘tack, tack, tack’. I guess ‘you’re a duck!’, and on we go with one of Rachel’s favorite games. We kind of take turns giving the other an animal noise to guess, and she’s pretty good at it.

2. I’m not able to do my pushups with Rachel flopped onto my back. Also, she’s too tall to walk between my legs, especially when I’m in the middle of side lunges.

3. Library story hour was a little overwhelming today due to the huge number of babies, toddlers, and responsible adults. No wonder Rachel went to a quiet spot and laid on the floor.

Birdies, boo, energy

April 26, 2017

1. Two little finches landing on the garden fence while I work on the weeding and Rachel putters around. It felt like a secret garden moment.

2. Playing ‘boo’ with Rachel. We race back and forth and around from the kitchen to the living room, trying to surprise each other. Her laugh is contagious.

3. My afternoon slump has been less slumpy since I’ve been spending more time outside on walks and gardening.
