Merry Christmas from the Kendricks!
(Remind me next Thanksgiving to show you how I do our cards - super easy and cheap!)
The past few days have been stressful, but not because this is the day before Christmas Eve. We reached a peak (I hope) in the defiant 3 year old phase and we are slowly seeing Ina’s sweetness return. Last night she asked for candy and I told her she had to pick a healthy snack instead. I took her to the pantry and she pointed to a can of white beans. After we rinsed them off in the sink she proceeded to eat 3/4 of the can. Of room temperature, unseasoned, plain old white beans.
Also, Monday morning I found a nail in my tire.
Then yesterday the girls couldn’t go to daycare, so I worked and entertained them at the same time.
Despite the stress, I have had quite the treat of enjoying friends company on both Monday and Tuesday night. I felt so guilty having Dan parent solo two nights in a row, but he insisted that I go enjoy the rare opportunity to see my friends, and enjoy I did. Monday night I met a few of my friends from high school and even though I was up way past my bedtime, it was amazing.
Then Tuesday night I met some friends from pharmacy school at Rye. (Kansas City people - go there ASAP. The whipped goat cheese with honey appetizer and the trout are AH-mazing.)
The holidays always remind me how incredibly blessed my family is with the people in our lives and this year is no exception.
Merry Christmas to you and your family! <3
