My little Emily loves to bake! Every chance we get to make daddy a cake, a box of brownies or cookies, we do. I have also been teaching her all of the ingredients in English and in Spanish. She is getting better at repeating the Spanish ingredients. I love it when she wakes me up and askes to bake something for daddy! She runs to the kitchen pulls out a chair and expects me to start whipping something up to bake. These are the moments that I will look back upon when she becomes older. These are the stories I want her to read to show her with some dedication and constant practice anything is possible. While I train minute to be a mini me, what are your little ones up to? 😜
Sometimes I feel like I’m running into walls with the lack of sleep, and always on the go, go go! I find myself googling quotes to keep me motivated–just like this one. Hope you guys are having a good day!
I know this is a touchy subject for a person in my household (my husband) but I have to know:
Why not pay attention to detail?
For instance, I came home and immediately started dinner. I go into my cabinet to get a 9 inch skillet and when I take it out I noticed that the pot is dirty. Normally I’m the one who is in charge of dishes, and by in charge, I mean putting them in the dishwasher. I know I am a Nazi when it comes to checking for clean dishes and to make sure everything is clean before it’s being put back into the cabinets. What I don’t understand is; how my husband can put a dirty skillet away without thinking “hmmmm let me put it back in the dishwasher or let me scrub it by hand.”
Another example: In the shower he would rather cut open a toothpaste tube instead of going into the closet to get a new one.
I’m not too sure why my husband chooses not to pay attention to detail. I find it rather unattractive. 😦
As for my last example–now that February is right around the corner, I’ve already purchased my Valentine’s Day card (over a week ago). How much would you want to bet that my husband will buy my Valentine’s Day card on 2/14/15. How much more would you bet that he’ll purchase it an hour before I come home and all he will do is sign it? I’m not saying that it can’t be purchased the day of, but at least put some words in it.
Look at your notebook; did you know that you are more likely to jot down thoughts if you LOVE the design of your notebook and enjoy the feel of your pen on the paper? So you know where I’m going with this…INVEST IN GOOD QUALITY PRODUCTS to keep you motivated!
P.S. I took this picture off the internet. I’ve never done drugs…I know…I tell people it’s my only V card! LOL
