watched cinderella for the first time.
and then three more times after that.
had a lot of "ellie and mommy" time while jack was at school and charlie napped. we've been doing alphabet crafts, cooking, and pretending.
ignored four tantrums at the store.
(ellie 3, jack 1)
took a roll of pictures with the diana mini.
had one of those mom panic attacks. you know, the ones where you think you are the absolute worst mom in the world because you yell and spank and give in and do all those things that moms should NOT do.
stayed up till one reading half of Jane Eyre for the first time.
let charlie lick a sucker. he was a fan!
incidentally, we also bought his first toothbrush this week too.
burned two bagels.
went to sophie's house for a fun craft and play time.
lost a load of laundry.
i found it 3 days later. in the dryer.
taught jack some basic italian words.
like bellisimo, ciao, grazie, buena notte,
a pizza pie-ah, italian-o greyhound-o. the basics.
made my first real cheesecake.
missed our dad.
snuggled in mommy's bed before school.
all in all, its been a pretty good week at la casa de brower.
