Oh, you guys. Parenting during a pandemic: it is not for the faint of heart. Like many people, El Hub and I have had to make some tough decisions about sending our kid back to school, so it’s been a rough week… So rough that even lipstick could barely get me through it. But you know. We’re brave. And we’re tough. And we can do things we never thought we could do, right? At least that’s what I keep telling myself 10 million times a day.
I’ve started doing this thing where I set reminders on my phone with my affirmations, so they pop up throughout the day, and I can just read them over and over again.
You know what they say — fake it ’til you make it.
You know what they also say? When the going get tough, the tough eat pasta, which is why you’re looking at that pasta picture at the top. (I should’ve probably intro’d with that, whoops!)
If any picture were able to convey that Connor is 100% her mother’s daughter, it would be this one…
Which reminds me, I made this lemon tagliatelle pasta from Laura in the Kitchen a few days ago…
I gave Connor her plate, stepped out of the room to go check something, and when I came back this was how she was eating her food.
