One of my favorite series to join is the What’s New With You Link Up, from See You in a Porridge, because it pushes me to look back on my month, and appreciate the little things.
Here’s how January played out:
Jack Turned Seven!
Jack was a New Year’s baby, born at 4:02 pm on January First. Every year we celebrate his birthday on the first, and this year we got to do it with our whole family. In the morning we took my side of the family to the movies to see Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse. Then when we got home, Eric’s side of the family was there to greet us for our Spider-Man party.
If you haven’t seen Into the Spider-Verse, do yourself a favor, and go see it. I’ve seen it three times already, and I literally just stopped typing to find out when it comes out on DVD so I can see it again.
Jack and Lorelai got Tortured by the Dentist
It was Lorelai’s first time at the dentist, and she was cool as a cucumber. Jack, on the other hand, had 8 cavities! I had a lot of dental work when I was a kid, so watching Jack get his cavities filled was both traumatic for the kids and for me 🙁
I have pictures of Jack as well, but honestly who wants to see pictures of a seven year old getting tortured?
We went to the Women’s March
In all honesty, Eric pushed to do this more than I did. Not that I don’t appreciate the importance of the movement, it was just super cold that day, and we had a Tae Kwon Do event shortly after it. Plus the march in CT was an hour away! I know, lame excuses, but I own it.
Eric has taken our daughter to the Women’s March every year, and this year was not going to be an exception.
We had a beautiful Winter storm
I know it sounds like a conflict of terms, but seriously, look at these pictures.
Have I ever told you how much I love my house?
I Started Weight Watchers and Lorelai Started Ballet
You can read all about my Weight Watchers journey so far on my Weight Loss page! I lost 10 pounds in January! I’ll give you a sneak peak, here’s what I’ve been eating:
Overall January was a great start to the new year. I lost ten pounds on Weight Watchers, my kids started new adventures, and we made it through some blistery weather. All that good stuff made the hard stuff more bearable. Though I may still be shell shocked from the dentistry!
