Quick Takes #125

  1. We keep raising the stakes on this whole 'having 3 kids' thing.  Dr Daddy was on-call all week and so I was majorly soloing.  Largely went well; perhaps a bit more junk food, tv watching, and raised voices than I had hoped but everyone is alive and well if a little worst for wear.
  2. Caitlin is now a month old (separate post coming) and having her one month check-up later today with hopefully a good report.  Loving that she now tries to raise her head and make eye contact.
  3. My experience of the Super Bowl: Yummy pizza, good friends meeting Caitlin, Wow Ravens way ahead, power went out, left to put kids to bed, Wow the 49ners have this almost tied up: Good game - Go bed.
  4. So without saying I did not see many of the commercials or the Halftime show; but there are some interesting posts about them: gypsy mom & Patheos.
  5. A lovely treat for the weekend, both my sisters are coming to visit. So excited to introduce them to their new niece and hopefully get in some good talks/catching on life, etc.
  6. Lent begins in less than week, still working on plans for myself and family.  Suggestions welcomed for ways to introduce Lent to an almost five year old.
  7. The coming NorEaster is suppose to mostly hit north of us; prayers for friends and family in its path.

  1. I hope you don't get too much snow. the NE has been hit so hard this year! :(

    Enjoy your visit with your sisters!

  2. Have a fun weekend with your sisters!!

  3. Have a great weekend with your sisters!

    You have to watch the doritoes goat commercial from the Super Bowl - hilarious! And the M&M commercial set to Meatloaf's "I'd do anything for love" is pretty good too :).

  4. Re the storm: looks like they prepared well. All of us in the middle of the country are wishing we could get some of that snow!

    Re Lent: make it tactile and practical. That's what I tried to do in my book. (Shameless self-promo:

    Congratulations on making the one-month mark!
