Welcome back to another week of Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This is the time where I spend 5 minutes free writing. I want this to go up on Saturdays, so I’m generally writing this on Friday. Sometimes super early Saturday. Or Sunday, if that’s easier for you.
1. Set a timer for five minutes. (Or keep tabs with your computer’s clock.)
2. Write freely. Any topic. Whatever is on your mind. It doesn’t even have to be completely cohesive.
3. Tag on social media with #SOCSaturday or #SOCSunday and link up below. You have all day Saturday and Sunday to join the link up. It closes Monday morning.
4. Click around and give some comment/blog love.
My mind has been overloaded the past couple of weeks. I have more friends who lost their jobs this week and I hurt for them. I don’t even know what I can do to help, but I did offer. Whatever they need. (Maybe I have some sort of skill that will benefit them, right?)
Someone at work told me that we were heading into my “busy season.” I wasn’t entirely sure what that meant, until this week. My calendar is filling up fast. As if I had room in my calendar to keep adding things. I get it. Busy season. The months that are crammed full of events and craziness. I’m ready.
My boy turns 3 next weekend. Three! And if you ask him if he’s going to be 3, he’ll tell you “no.” He claims he’s turning 10. Like his friend who said he was 10 (but is really 3.) Toddlers are funny beings.
My toddler also doesn’t want a dinosaur birthday cake. He only wants a birthday cake. So I’m curious about his reaction if I make the dinosaur cake. Do I dare try it?
I’m excited to see where age 3 takes us. The past 3 years have been a roller coaster, for sure. Someone recently asked me if my son has trouble listening at home. I started to get concerned (and went to Google looking to see if this was a not normal thing for a toddler.) Turns out, 3-year-olds can give parents a run for their money. And I think that’s what mine is doing. He doesn’t like to be told “no” and he prefers to do his own thing. He challenges us, for sure.
We definitely have a three-nager on our hands.
