I’m currently organizing and filing everything in my house, from bills to kids’ artwork to my digital pictures. And with 90,000 photos collected over the years, between family and food, it’s taking me awhile. The Professor loves looking at pictures of himself as a baby, which reminds me of an annoying amusing conversation we had the other day.

Me: “Why do you like looking at your baby pictures so much? Is it because you like to see what you were like as a baby?”

Professor: “Yes, but I really like see how young you and Daddy were.”

Nice. Have we really changed THAT much in 11 years?

I suppose that is one motivation for me to make my health a priority and stick with my resolutions.

My daughter loves to sit on my lap. Now that she’s 7, she’s all legs and it’s getting harder to keep her contained on my lap. My husband tries to steal her onto his lap – it’s bigger he argues. She refuses him

“Why do you like sitting on Mommy’s lap more than mine?” he asks, knowing the answer and smirking at me.

“Mommy’s lap is more squishy and more comfortable,” she replies with a smile.

I slug my husband.

Usually for breakfast I eat whatever I can find, whatever is left in the refrigerator. I have been making more of an effort to shop for myself and not just the kids. And this Pomegranate Yogurt Parfait with Blueberries is one of my favorites.

I mix thick Greek yogurt with pomegranate concentrate, then top with blueberries, pomegranate, and low sugar granola. Protein, fiber, vitamins and antioxidants. And the colors make me happy.

I’m ready to battle my day, squishy lap and all.
