GINGERBREAD HOUSE MAKING

Sam picked up this gingerbread house kit for us to make together yesterday. I love that it's all natural. To decorate we used goji berries, dried blueberries, and shredded coconut. Take that fake food. Matilda LOVED spreading on the icing, eating the cookies, eating the cookies, and eating the cookies. HA! "Mama, can I eat this?" x 1000.

The last couple of days she has not wanted to nap (Christmas excitement, sugar overload, Sam and I both at home?). It makes me feel panicky about getting work done next year without sacrificing our time together. Just a lot of jitters lately, about the new space, working from home, letting people down.I am SO thankful for all of your kind words and encouragement on my move. It took a long time to work up the nerve. Thank you, thank you for making a girl feel so good. - Lesley

PS In case you can't tell the gingerbread men are making snow angels.
PPS Have you tried Whole Food's eggnog icecream? don't.do.don't.

  2. Very cute! You can probably just start a new routine of an hour of "quiet time" for Til. Where she can't come out of her room until you come get her. I do not look forward to those days of no naps..do NOT!

  3. How sweet -- daughter and house! How DO you get her hair in a perfect bun like that?

    Cheers,

  4. She's a doll! I feel for you on that nap transition. But don't fret too much, you'll do great to have her still have quiet time down the road and you can focus on your work at home. I always felt so stressed and sad about naptime being over with each of mine-but then with the bad comes the good too! It frees up your schedule a bit so you have more flexibility-and maybe makes bedtime earlier!:) I know you know all this, just want to reassure you it'll be alright!
    Happy Happy Holidays!

  6. My Levi is transitioning to one nap now (I know, it's better than none!) BUT it is a scary proposition for sure. You'll find your groove. I know it.

  8. Loving that face Til is making! And that you used berries and shredded coconut to decorate. Definitely adding that to my running list of ideas for a future nino!

    I can't offer advice about being a working from home mom, but I know that you're pretty stellar and will shine no matter what you do.
