We have a lot going on- some of it completely awesome. The husband has been participating in a series of mountain bike races and really enjoying it. Its so fun to see him digging something so much. Also, at last night's race he won a prize in the raffle of 5 free yoga classes...and guess who has a wifey who likes yoga! Whee! The Kid and I grabbed some portable dinner and drove up the mountain to watch him race and had a blast.
The Kid is entering that age 3-ish place and we're definitely noticing an increase in asserting of individuality, arguing and tantrums. It's all completely developmentally appropriate but that doesn't make it any less frustrating when you're trying to get out the door in the morning/ do the grocery shopping/ insert any adult-initiated activity here. We're brainstorming ideas for his birthday next month and having fun window shopping for strider bikes and roller skates, both things we know he'd love.
He's making huge intellectual strides right now and its so much fun to see him comprehending more and more on a daily basis. His favorite book to read right now is A Frog Prince which is super wordy without a ton of pictures...he will sit through the entire thing multiple times if his reader is
As for me, I have some job stuff hopefully coming up (fingers crossed) and lots of volunteer work stuff happening as well. Also, I'm making plans for how to continue running when the snow and ice hits. I've been scouring craigslist and other classifieds for a good used treadmill and asking everyone for cold weather running stuff for my birthday later this month. I figure I can get out there as long as the ice isn't too bad, and in that event I'll hopefully be safe and warm and sweating on a treadmill.
I've got some races coming up- a 5K this weekend and a 4-mile trail run later in the month. Then in October, my dad and I plan on running a 10K together in Missouri (hooray for low altitude!) Imma gonna kill it.
