My hair, my boys and some slippers, oh and one more thing….

So I decided to dye my hair red for Christmas. It took three tries to get it actually red, apparently my hair is stubborn or something.

Also, Paul let me sleep in this morning (UNTIL 9AM! Woo!) And when I woke up I came out into the living room to this.

Is that not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen in your life? I’m pretty sure it’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. I like these boys.

Also, Sam is pretty darn good at roadtripping (We just got back from Tacoma on Saturday night)

I love how he crosses his legs in his carseat. I am biased, I know, but come on, how cute is he? He also got an awesome table from Grandpa and Grandma and Aunt Carrie for Christmas and it’s pretty much his favorite thing.

He likes to push it up against the piano and play some tunes for us. Usually while wiggling his booty in the air.

And some Christmas knits, as promised! I made felted slippers for all of Paul’s sisters!

And, drumroll, please….. I’ve got a job! A full time one, at that, starting on Monday morning, so I’m going to have to take a break from custom knitting, at least until I get my footing with my new job.  I’m sad, but I know that it’ll be a big relief for me to not have to worry about knitting deadlines while working full time and trying to be a good mother and wife. I’ll be sure to let you know once I am ready to take on more knitting projects for other people, but for now I think I’m just going to have to cut cold-turkey! I’ll still be knitting for myself and for Sam, so Knittybutton will (hopefully) still stay somewhat relevant!

I’m really excited about this new step in our lives and hoping it will be good for everyone and that the transition won’t be too hard on Sam. He hasn’t been with babysitters much, so this will be a bit of a new thing for Sam. But he is pretty good at adapting, so I’m sure he’ll be great getting to hang out with his buddy all day.  But not gonna lie, I’m a bit nervous! I haven’t worked a ‘real job’ since I was pregnant with Sam, so this could be interesting, but I’ll be glad to have insurance again after a long time without it!

And I’m sure this will make my New Years Resolutions a bit harder (be better about meal planning and cutting out processed foods). Although, come to think of it, maybe not sitting around the house all day will make my constant snacking habit easier to kick!

Any New Year Resolutions on your end?

  1. Best of luck with your new job! Looks like your husband is a supportive and capable guy and a wonderful father-that is the key. I speak from my daughter’s experience as a working Mom of a 21/4 active boy. He has thrived in excellent day-care andat this age, learned much
    more than my kids did at home .

  2. A crock pot can help you with cutting the processed foods but still having dinner ready in a timely fashion. Good luck with your new job and all the transition that goes with!
