I had a MOPS steering meeting this morning. Since I joined the leadership team part way through the year last year, I had never been to the "Kick off the new year, wow there's a million things to cover" meeting before. Let's just say it was a teensy bit overwhelming! =) I'm doing a new job this year, Hospitality Coordinator, and am still figuring out a lot of details about that, so my head felt like it was going to explode at the end of the meeting! It was a really fun time though, and the rest of the people on the team are Fantastic! I'm going to have lots of fun brainstorming ideas to make the atmosphere of the meetings fun, come up with creative decorations and tie that all in to the "Planet Mom" theme.
Immediately following the meeting, we met up with most of the wifia, and our friend Brittny and her kids at McDonald's for lunch. Keenan had a great time playing in the play place with his friends, and I had a great time catching up with my girl friends that I hadn't seen in over a month!
When we came home, it was thunderstorming (perfect nap weather, in my opinion), the kids both went down super well, and I laid down for my own sweet nap... Well - it was not to be. Why? Did one of the kids wake up? Was the thunder too loud? Did the phone ring? No. no. no. I was lying there, and started thinking back over the MOPS meeting, and then my mind just took off, and I started thinking of all these fun things I could do with the theme, and I COULD NOT sleep, so, instead, I got up and made a list of all my ideas, and then looked around the house for things I could use to help me out. Pathetic. I have a problem. I don't know what it's called, but I really wish I could find a cure! My body Desperately needs sleep, but when my mind starts to do it's own thing, no matter How tired I am, I just can't get to sleep! Does anyone else have this problem??
Standing up! No, she didn't pull herself up (and notice I'm right there in case she falls), but she likes stand up if you put her by something she can hang onto.
