Currently - November 7, 2012

I was sure looking forward to this today! Check out Brennan playing in the snow!

Brennan is...

Anticipating... Is there anything else a kid at this time of year, who lives in Canada, thinks about? SNOW!!!

Buying... Everything he could buy for the children who don't have. We've asked that he only ask Santa for two gifts... He does have a budget to buy gifts for the local Christmas toy drive and he's been pouring over the WalMart toy flyer dreaming!

Needing... Although he hasn't said it, I think he needs me more than usual. He's been clingy, argumentative and a bit whiny. He's happiest when he's in my lap - and I'm okay with that!

Thinking... About decorating the house! We bought a few new decorations for the holidays and he has been on at me since we brought them home to decorate... Although I used to have a strict "no decorating until December 1", having kids have changed EVERYTHING I once knew and believed to be true!

Ignoring... The idea that he has to go through his toys and part with many of them... Previously, we've purged his toys but thought it would be a good exercise for him to realize the ebb and flow of "stuff"...

Brennan's Mom is...

Anticipating... Getting the okay to go back into the office a few hours each week! As my friend told me, I'll be wishing a year from now to just work a few hours a week so I better enjoy it while I can!

Buying... Too much of everything: decorations, food, presents. I love Christmas but I hate my compulsion to buying things!

Needing... Snuggles from my little boy and reassurance that this will get better and one day, I'll be muddled brained and in pain no more!

Thinking... About the office and the screw ups I have to correct when I go back. A person took over my projects, said person has been terminated and said person SCREWED UP a lot of my stuff... Everything is over budget and I'm left trying to explain why.

Ignoring... The giant dust bunnies that are accumulating on the stairs... and under the bed... and under the table... and under the phone desk... But I'm okay with it really...

Thanks for stopping in and be sure to check everyone over at Harvesting Kale!



  1. Hi there! stopping over from the Link-up. I love that you are giving your son the chance to buy toys for other children and that he gets to pick them out. That's a wonderful idea!


    1. Thanks! I just hope that it's teaching the right lesson. He's a smart boy with lots of empathy but I am often dismayed at his rampant consumerism! But I guess he's 4 and toys are pretty awesome so I can cut him some slack! ;)

      Thanks for stopping by!
