A Peek into Our Monday

Happy Monday to you! How’s everyone doing? I’m getting a bit of a late start on this Monday. I’d love to have all of my blog posts published in the morning, but sometimes life gets ahead of me. James was up bright and early today and our day has been filled with all kinds of activity.

We started the morning with Kodiak cake waffles topped with peanut butter and bananas, and quickly made our way out the door for a walk around the neighborhood. Before long it was time to head to the library for a dance party. At the last dance party James seemed to be the only child not staying within our designated cones, but this morning he blended right in with the kid chaos. In fact, one of the little girls decided that it would be a good idea to scoop up all of the cones, and before long she had a full stack in her hands. Our dance leader wasn’t too thrilled with this, but I was happy that James wasn’t the only one not following the rules.

Post dance party, we walked around the pond nearby before making our way into the library to do some exploring. James wandered all over the library in his usual one year old random fashion. I simply followed. We signed up for the kids reading program, mostly because there’s a raffle at the end of the summer and the prizes sound really cool! We also walked over to the bank and I FINALLY got the last name on my credit card switched over to my married name. Almost two years after marriage thanks to a global pandemic, baby, and a whole lot of procrastination but I’m glad to finally have it done.

James and I were quite hungry when we got home from our morning activities so I put together a 5 minute lunch and called it a day. I’m using a recycled salad photo here for my lunch and it looks a lot prettier than the salad I threw together today. Also, James and his pizza, crackers and watermelon…health food 101. The perfectionist in me dies in moments like these.

I’ve been working on some household chores while James takes a nap, read a few chapters in the book of Danielle, showered, and am now sitting down to blog. I’m hoping that James stays asleep so that I can hit “publish” and finish up some laundry before the afternoon activities begin. I’m craving something extra fun this afternoon but I really have no idea what that would be. We are attending a free dinner at the church tonight, and that may be the main activity for the evening.

I hope that your week is off to a wonderful beginning!


Hi I'm Rae and I am a pastor's wife and mom to our one year old son James. I recently started blogging as a way to share my recovery journey from an eating disorder, as well as married life, motherhood, food, and faith. Hop along for the ride, I’m glad you’re here!
