Why, Fran, where have you been? Well, exhaustedly pregnant to tell you the truth. At this point, getting anything done beyond basic necessary tasks and childcare is just… hard. My plan each day is to get through each day, and hopefully that involves taking a nap. Ugh, I don’t want to be the lazy, exhausted pregnant lady, but there I am.
That isn’t to say I haven’t done anything at all FRILLING or creative or fun lately. I have, just more slowly. Like…
…creating healthy appealing toddler meals in our PlanetBox lunchbox, complete with Raw Cookie Dough Bites…
Keepin’ it Frill, people. That’s what it’s all about.
Well, “school.” “School” = Kids Day Out two mornings a week. At 21 months, Little B is such a curious, sociable, talkative, affectionate kid; we think she’s going to love playing with friends, singing songs, and doing art projects a few hours a week. And, true to her nature, she practically ran to the door yelling “school!” “play!”, and didn’t look back or give us a second thought. She was completely uninterested in a goodbye hug for Mama and Papa.
…purple polka dot dress from BabyGap Outlet with comfy Stride Rite Mary Jane sneakers.
What She (we) Carried…
…beloved frog backpack (bought on clearance at Gap Outlet), and her new PlanetBox Rover Lunch box, a bento-style kit which I think I’m in love with.
…black olives, dried peas, cheese cubes, rice crackers, goji berries, strawberries and kiwis, a dried fig, seaweed snacks, and a homemade gluten-free Almond Flour Snickerdoodle. Don’t you love how tidy this lunch box makes everything look? So appetizing. I wish someone would make me a lunch like this every day.
She’s such a fun girl.
