My friend, Jo, has this great thing she does with her kids. When they eat dinner, they take turns going around the table and discussing the best and worst parts of their day. She calls it “best and worst.”
I just saw her yesterday and I remembered this little activity. I think it is not only a great way to get families talking at dinner time, but good for us all to stop and think about what was best and worst about our day/week/month/year.
I thought I’d start a periodic best and worst on this blog just for fun and to celebrate (and lament) with you. Below you will see the best and worst of this past week, in no particular order.
A very pretty lightening storm.
Power gardening during Anderson’s naps.
Anderson’s first BBQ. He was the life of the party and up late like a wild man.
Seeing my garden explode, as I wrote in the last post.
Putting in the rest of the veggies, as I will soon post about.
Making roasted red pepper and sun dried tomato fusilli from Supermarket Vegan: 225 Meat-Free, Egg-Free, Dairy-Free Recipes For Real People in the Real World.
Making Cinnamon-Espresso Chocolate Chip Cookies (also vegan) from Made Just Right.
Going for power walks around my town with my little walking partner. He smiles when I jog. If that isn’t motivation to get a move on, I don’t know what is.
Finally getting my thank you notes out to all of the people that gave gifts to Anderson. I am overwhelmed with the generosity of people in my life. He is still getting gifts!
Sending out pretty birth announcements.
Discovering the lullaby station on Pandora and dancing with my sweet baby to the gentle music. I get weepy. I admit it. I am a mush.
Getting into my pre-pregnancy jeans.
2 month shots. Ugh – rip my heart out.
Seeing Chris suffer with an injured back. He’s had a rough time the past few weeks.
Getting sad about leaving my little man when my maternity leave ends, hence the Pandora lullaby station/dancing/sniffling.
Do share your best and worst. It feels good to reflect and celebrate and also to let go.
