Our Exciting Lives

So, Cali asked people what they did with their weekends. Yeah, she asked a few posts ago...

On Friday night, we did our Friday night Shabbat ritual (he loves the candle-lighting and blessings; non-traditional pic here), ate dinner, and then noticed Jo rubbing his eyes and being cranky. In our attempts to establish a set bedtime (these days he sacks out reliably around 8) we jump on his sleepy signals. So at 7:15, we took him to the bed for books, lullabies, and nursings. However, since his real bedtime seems to be around 8, he nursed for a loooong time while we lay with him between us. I wanted to go down to the basement for some 12 month clothes (our giant boychik is growing again; he wears 18 month pajamas!!) but was waiting for him to be more solidly asleep before I left Co with him.

And then I woke up at 11. We had both fallen asleep in our clothes. Ah, the life of working moms.

On Saturday we did something that really was exciting: thanks to our excellent friend in the theater industry, we had free tickets to see the new musical 13. It's the first show on Broadway with an all-teen cast, including the band, and it's wonderful! I teach 7th grade, and tutor Bar/Bat Mitzvah candidates...13 is my bread and I really enjoyed the energy and humor in this show. Go see it if you get the chance!

Co writes great posts, but she neglects the photos. Here's Jo standing with his stroller (this was minutes after the toddler attack, so you can see he was ultimately unscathed):

And here he is reaching up to try to touch a tree:

Just to show you what we mean....
