Take 280

7 Quick Takes Friday 
--- 1 ---
I remember putting this coat in my "Next Size Up" box for my children... and thinking, "This coat is huge. Rowan will never be that big.
But here we are... my little German speaker.

We've been at less than 100% all week. One of us has stayed home every day... I was home Monday and Tuesday with G-man. And you know what? G learned to play Go Fish! He clearly has a passion for winning (and games!) and that makes me happy. I look forward to teaching him to play "Spit" (I know I know--it's a card game!!!).

(Rest assured. He already knows how to spit.)

We've been married almost six years, and a dream of mine was to have a living room without a TV. Call me a reader. Call me noise sensitive (because I totally am). Call me introverted... whatever you want. Our living room doesn't have a TV for the first time in our marriage... and I've read a lot this week! (Ok, also due to Take #2--I'll admit it.) 

And no. We didn't get rid of it. (I'm not that crazy. But props to you if you are!!) It's in another room that we now aptly call "The TV room".

Given the reality of Take #2, it's been a long week. It's been a hard week. And I got more than my fair share of laughter from this little tag left over from a Christmas present:
[Just replace the uppity doll giggle button invitation with a bit more of a sarcastic tone after your child whines about the dinner option(S!)... and you'll get my laugher. I needed it. And this little tag saved my sanity in the past 3 days.]

I think I need to rein in the unattended use of chapstick in this home...
--- 6 ---
I don't want to gloat, but I do intend to honor. I was delivered this tray one Sunday afternoon in my bed... to be alone, to disappear, to enjoy. Brian, as we used to say in 1999, "You da bomb."

National Public Holidays are different here... We get Good Friday, Easter Monday, and Ascension Day (40 Days after Easter) off in Germany. Not too shabby! I'll take it. Especially the 4-day weekend for Easter! I always thought we should get 1 day for the fasting (Good Friday) and equal amounts off for the feasting (Easter Monday). 10 points for Germany.
