I am getting later and later with these weekly installments, aren’t I? Maybe you’ve been complaining, but I haven’t heard you with my face buried in a jar of homemade coconut butter. Seriously one of the best tasting treats on the planet. The problem is that I’ve been (possibly) overindulging in this treat recently. Yes, we are on Day 26 of our Whole30, and while we’re still going strong (4 more days! Yeah!), I have become increasingly hungry. It might be the breastfeeding. I might not be getting enough calories/fat/starchy vegetables in. Either way, at this time of night I need to eat and eat and eat.
And yes, I would still kill for a cupcake, and have every intention of eating one next weekend. Along with half a bottle of Prosecco. So I’m not sure if I can say “mission accomplished” on the killing my sugar craving side of things, but I may be able to attribute that to the breastfeeding.
Anyway, that is NOT why you’re here! Without further ado, here are this week’s Things Overheard.
We are out at a restaurant with a bunch of friends, all of us with kids. The Teen sees a boy she knows, who then approaches her to say hi. She comes back looking flustered as he leaves the restaurant.
The Husband: Who was that?
The Teen: THAT’S Trevor**!
The Husband: Oh. *looks over the Teen’s shoulder and pretends to see Trevor right behind her* Hey Trevor! Did you want to talk to the Teen?
The Teen: What?! Fuck!!
The Husband: Just kidding! So I guess you know that word after all, eh??
The Teen: …*beet red*…
The Threenager, to baby C: You’re such a smoker!! *laughs*
The Threenager: Yup!
Me: …what exactly does a smoker do?
The Threenager: He stands up and pushes buttons!
We had a bit of a tantrum regression this week, surrounding how much TV the Threenager can watch. She is not impressed, and not to be deterred.
The Threenager, while crying agressively: Can I watch TV?
*repeated 89 times in a row. The Husband counted. I admit, I laughed.*
The Threenager: Dada, can I watch a show?
The Husband: I’m on strike.
The Threenager: What did you say, Dada?
The Husband: I said, “I’m on strike.”
The Threenager: Did you say, “What show would you like to watch?”
The Husband: …
Happy Sunday night!
**Trevor is not his real name. We protect the innocent, here.
