How is it already January 20, 2015?

Today means that I have one more week left of my 30s. Wowee! What am I going to do with those seven days? Well, days one through four will be spent at work; day five will be spent on a car ride to Milwaukee, a plane ride to Cancun and some sort of wheels to Tulum (AO, we gotta figure that part out); and days six and seven will be spent touring some ruins, biking to the beach, and drinking tropical drinks. Or at least that’s the plan. I’ll check back with you later.

Now then, the real task at hand is to step out of this funk that set in around 5:30 p.m. on Sunday. You know what I’m talking about. Oy vey. I don’t want to rehash it, but I do want to give mucho thanks to my stellar cousin Maggie for sending me this gem. It’s easing the pain. A bit. I might have to close my office door soon, though, if the hallway talk goes into play-by-play mode.

On yet another note, Molly’s THIRD birthday is coming up. Can you believe it? Now I feel like life gets real for her so I really need to watch myself. I mean, she’ll now start to actually *remember* all of the zillions of times I screw up. The pressure! My current thoughts about her birthday are two-fold. One, should we throw her a party with her pals from school? Two, it’s at three years old that doctors and nurses start to voice their concerns about a child’s speech. Will she be able to pull it together in the next six weeks so that we can avoid speech therapy?!*

*I don’t think speech therapy is dreadful and I know I’m lucky that we (a) have medical care that will tell us if she needs it and (b) we have resources to be able to give it to her if she needs it. So please don’t think I’m a bad person for hoping that she can pull her speech together on her own. I’m sure I don’t help her by talking too fast. I’ve been trying to work on that when reading to her. “Gooooooooooooooooooooo Doooooooooooooooooog Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!”

    Looking forward to my week with Molly. And your trip sounds wonderful. However a bit short. And her speech is getting clearer but a professional should offer some good advice.

    When you put as leaving your 30s, it sounds so nutty. Forty has been good to me so far, so I’m sure it will welcome you, too.

    What’s nuttier is that Moly is turning 3. I have full confidence in her speech abilities.

    Sounds like you have a great week/month of birthday planned. Enjoy!

This photo doesn’t wholly capture how annoying it was to put up with this medicine cabinet for four years. It infringed on the already tiny amount of space we had in our en-suite bath. So, on Friday, something amazing happened. #recessthatcabinet #brassisback #allthingsbrass #potterybarn #bathroomupgrade #happyinteriors

There was a day when she learned to #dab and she didn’t tell me. And she just pulled it out at some friends’ house one night, like it was the most natural thing. And while I couldn’t stop laughing, I realized I was witnessing another example of what will be only more big steps away from me and the life I thought the three of us had together. And I know that is beautiful and how it should be. But catching myself, watching that moment, finding it in a photograph? It takes my breath away at how fleeting and transient and amazing this all is. Molly, you are my #everything. I’m better because of you. Being your mom is the best thing that has ever happened to me. By far. And I lived in Italy! #parenting #whyivoteblue #fallinwisconsin #moments #passageoftime #itgoestoofast
