On cereal, cauliflower, and baby nap schedules

I’ve become a Cheerios mom. Not so incredibly happy about that, for some reason. I mean, having snacks on hand is a good thing, I recognize that, and cheerios is easy. But…it’s so cliché. 😦

Ever since I bought Cheerios, I’ve had this crazy craving for Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I know I’ve seen it somewhere around here, but not at my normal grocery store, I guess. The hunt is on!

While I’ve had cauliflower at restaurants before, I’ve never made it at home. So last weekend I bought a head and roasted it this week. Very good, but… Wow, it was stinky. Stephen walked in from work and asked if the sewer had backed up. So, yeah, as much as I enjoyed it, I don’t know if I’ll subject the house to the stink again. Baby J liked it, though, so maybe it’s worth it.

I’ve been working on a schedule, for various housework duties and “extracurricular” pursuits. On paper it looks good, and doable. We’ll see how it works out once I start following it (which will be after our upcoming trip to Lapland). And I still need to find time to fit in workouts, so we’ll see. I’ve worked out a couple of times while Baby J was awake, and it went okay, mostly, so I may do that rather than try to fit it in during naps (since that’s when I want to write). It’s not so much the workout that I have a hard time with, it’s the stuff before and after: putting shoes on, wrangling myself into two sports bras, then the cool down and struggling *out* of the two sports bras. I love workouts for which I don’t need to wear sports bras…or shoes, for that matter… 🙂

After 2+ months of struggling, Baby J has finally transitioned to two naps. Then this weekend, for whatever reason, he basically self-adjusted to daylight savings time without us doing anything. Except, DST in Finland doesn’t start for three more weeks!!! So he’s taking three naps today, and hopefully will get back on the correct schedule, and then even more hopefully we’ll be able to adjust him once DST actually does happen.  :-/

Stephen and Baby J are off to the store, so I’m going to post this, then sit back and relax.  Maybe watch a cheesy chick flick on Netflix.  Ah, cheeeeese.
