Week in Review

Be prepared to be amazed at all the awesomeness that has transpired over the last seven-ish days.
Mild astonishment is okay too.

This week was mostly spent studying for a midterm for my History of Technology, Society and Environment class and working on a COVID-19 research paper for my class in human-nature health.
I was able to make it to week three in Barre Blend, but I am taking a few days off because my body feels like it’s about to be hit with a fibro flare up. I think the stress of my school assignments and midterm is really throwing me off.

We finally started getting some goodies from out patio garden.
Two green beans that I ate as soon as this photo was snapped and strawberries. I think we have some peppers that are almost ready to pick.
We faced yet another heat wave this week and our city has asked us to conserve water.

I got in the little oilers starter kit this week with Feathers the Owl diffuser from Young Living this week. Feathers is also a white noise machine and night light. So far Teghan is not fond of the KidScents DreamEase blend. Her thoughts “It stinks. Make it stop!”
Hopefully this will Teghan sleep at night. As she gets used to it, or as I find a better sleep and relaxation blend.

The week was concluded with a birthday party celebration for my younger sister. We played mini golf and enjoyed ice cream. Teghan wanted a white Popsicle since they are her new favourite thing ever. It was so hot and unbearable, but after being in lock down for so long, it was nice to have family outing. Andy didn’t get to go because he has started back to work since Ontario has been slowly re-opening.

Teghan Éire’s Hatching Day Anniversary!

Five years ago today, after seven hours of labour I finally got to meet my youngest hatchling.

On April 16th, 2015 Teghan Éire was born at 3:12 pm weighing 8 lbs 4 oz and was 20″ long.
While most babies are born “face down” or this spunky little one decided that she was going to come out facing my thigh.
As soon as she was placed on my chest. she shoved her vernix caseosa covered hand in my mouth.

The last five years have been filled with so much extra joy.
Teghan is so intelligent and inquisitive — with just the right amount of sass.
She is wise beyond her years.

I hope she has the best year yet, with many more to follow.

Hatching Day?
When I was pregnant with my second kiddo, one of my friends would ask when the baby was going to hatch. My eldest kiddo heard that and we have joked about me hatching the baby.
The was also the time he was calling maple syrup tree sauce.
The kids and I now call birthdays “Hatching Day Anniversaries”
