Does anyone know how to make a rug lay flat? We bought a rug from Ikea several months ago for Jansen when we were getting things for his playroom. It’s one of those rugs with the city and street printed on it. I think it’s probably a 4.5′ square. We have it sitting on our carpet. Apparently the carpet doesn’t hold it in place AT ALL. From day one, it has moved every time you step on it. It now has a crease along it from where it keeps folding. Is that fixable?
Last night I gave Jansen some frozen chicken nuggets for dinner because I am an awesome mom. Stephen worked late so it was just the Jansenator and me. I didn’t feel like cooking. I made him a plate and put a dab of BBQ sauce in one of the plate compartments for him to dip. Instead of dipping the chicken, he dipped his fingers into the sauce and sucked it off. Over and over. It was cute. And I can’t really blame him… BBQ sauce is good.
I need a new crock pot recipe. Something that doesn’t involve cream of anything soup. Something that is still pretty healthy. Anything? My go-to crock pot meal is carnitas. Everything else I make in there is smothered in BBQ sauce, cream cheese, or some sort of cream of mushroom soup. I love making crock pot meals but I don’t want it to always be think and heavy. Anything that you love?
Jansen said “I love you” for the first time a few nights ago. We’ve been trying to get him to say it for months but it is a hard sentence to say. But the other night he was heading off to bed with daddy and he came to give me a kiss. I said, “I love you, Jansen” and he turned and said, “wuv woo.” He’s said it several times now. I love it!! He is also getting better about saying thank you.
I’m exhausted. I get like this every now and then when I get overwhelmed with life. We have a ridiculously busy few months ahead of us with things on our calendar just about every single weekend. Most of the things are wonderful and I’m looking forward to them, but it still very overwhelming. I’d like time to stand still for a bit. I’d like some quality time with my husband and my son without any outside stresses or plans. Is that too much to ask? Apparently.
I hope YOU have a relaxing weekend. Get some sleep, have some fun, and report back on Monday!
