May 2010 Recap

Amber Strocel does a montly recap and has invited others to play along and link up. Here's what I learned in May:

1. I learned that the thud of a 10-month-old's head hitting the coffee table is a sickening sound.

2. I discovered that 10-month-olds recover from their bumps and bruises more quickly than their parents do.

3. I learned that, although Mother's Day is undoubtedly a Hallmark holiday, it is rather nice to have a day to be appreciated for, and reflect on, all we do as mothers. (Presents and cards with little blueberry handprints on them are nice too.)
4. I learned that I am a total Napzi and proud of it!

5. I discovered that there is nothing cuter than a baby spontaneously shaking her booty to whatever music happens to be playing in the background.

6. I realized that I have a lot of cleaning in my future.
7. I learned that a baby can, in fact, sleep for 11 hours with a toothbrush lodged inside her pajamas.

8. I learned that, although the Hubs is the chef at our house, I can put together a decent meal and should flex culinary muscles from time to time. I'm now in charge of a couple meals a week, and I've surpised myself this month, both in the quality of meals I've produced, and in my enjoyment of the process.

9. I learned that saying no to chocolate once in a while will not cause me to spontaneously combust.

10. I realized that I truly lead a charmed, charmed life.


  1. If you have a drawer that SMELLS like chocolate you can easily say "no" to actually eating it. Truth :) I learned that in May:

    Sounds like your little one is a trouble maker like my youngest.

  2. Amanda,
    I love the picture of you and Lilah. Precious.

    Thank you so much for playing along!

    And it's true, 10-month-olds really DO recover more quickly. In fact, I don't think this really changes throughout childhood. Even my 5-year-old is far quicker to recover from things than I am. Kids are so resilient!

  4. The b/w photo is AMAZING. I love it!!
