March has positively flown by with a flurry of water and a buttload of stress. TBH I haven’t been updating anything here lately, because I feel like I’ve lost my mojo a little. While I blog about life, the universe and everything in between, my universe has filtered down to three people – M, Bear and me – so it hasn’t felt too interesting. As regular readers will know, Bear suffers from complex febrile seizures so when he’s sick (as he has been pretty much all month), the whole household treats him like a ticking time bomb that could go off at any moment. We don’t want to make plans or really do much of anything, just in case we have to drop everything for a hospital stay. Thankfully, our watchfulness was all for naught – he had multiple fevers through the month but didn’t seize once – huzzah!!! So while we’re on the subject of gratitude, let’s check out the March Love List and see just what I did end up getting up to.
Milestoning First Family Movie Trip
Bear has been obsessively watching every Lego Batman clip released for months, so when we saw the Cinebuzz Crew Advance Screening, I knew it would be a perfect first cinema experience for our little family. Bear comported himself fabulously, and all we’ve heard since are requests to go back and see it again. A definite winner.
Pondering Strange Posters
Eyeing Off Giant Bunnies
Making Microwave Apple Pie Porridge
I’ve been making this recipe for Bear ever since he was born and it’s an absolute winner. Sweet and cinnamony – it tastes exactly like an apple pie in your mouth, and with the addition of Organix fruit purees it’s an absolute snap to make.
Reading The Little Red Chairs
This book was absolutely fascinating. The whole concept of how well do you know the people you love has always captivated me. The basic plot is that a healer comes to a small Irish village, and a woman falls in love with him. She is then ostracized from the community when he turns out to be a notorious Balkans war criminal. It follows her through the initial love affair to her closure during his trial. Truly an incredible read.
I’m not gonna lie, the husband has been looking forward to an R Rated Wolverine movie for I don’t know how long. He is a Wolvie fan from waaaay back, so the expectation level was very high. I’m not sure it could have ever lived up to it, but I detailed just how close I think it came in my review.
Giggling At Daddy Making Dinner
I’m not sure there’s much I can say on this one – we both thought it was hysterical. We might be spending too much time around children 😛
